Answer: 
We appreciate your interest int his electric dryer. We do not have specific information available regarding fingerprints on this device. The outside of the machine can be cleaned with warm water and a mild, nonabrasive household detergent. Immediately wipe off any spills with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use methylated spirits, solvents, or similar products. Never use steel wool or abrasive cleansers; they can damage the surface.

Answer: 
It is difficult to determine the cause of squeaking in a dryer. It would typically be related to a belt, roller, or motor. It will not be possible to determine the source of this sound without an inspection by a qualified technician.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. It is normal to not see the steam in this model. However, as steam requires high heat in order to develop, it seems tht either the dryer’s heating element, or that of the steam generator, is not providing ample heat for proper operation. The unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....

Hello Eddd, On the LG 7.3 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity High Efficiency Front Control SteamDryer™ with SteamFresh™, Model # DLEY1701V, there are 2 Maunual Dry programs, the Speed Dry program and the Air Dry program. Since these are Manual Dry programs, they allow you to manually select the drying time from 20 minutes to 60 minutes in 10 minute increments. You can also use the More Time/Less Time buttons to add or reduce the drying time in 1- minute increments...^IFV
