What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Dryer This dryer is the best I have had and for the price, worth it. I have saved a lot of money in electricity since switching to LG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features! i haven't bought a dryer in 10 years so all these features are like toys to me! I LOVE the steam feature. And the tray that comes with this is SOOOO great for shoes that need freshening, etc - anything that doesn't need to spin. I LOVE having the controls at the front of the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST ARRIVED!! VERY THOUGHTFUL CONSTRUCTION I just installed this dryer today. It was easy to do; but what I loved about this product was that I could switch the way the door swung open; i.e originally it swung open from left to right. I changed it to open right to left; because my washing machine was on the right side. It took me about 20 minutes to do; just a bunch of screws and two hinges. It was already remanufactured to accommodate for this type of modification. Very nice. Hopefully it will give me a few years of service.

My dryer will not heat up amd when I set a time for it, it stops short of the cycle. When I run the dryer the drying light flashes and the cooling light stays on is that normal?

Asked by: Brokedryer
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. It is not normal for the COOLING light to stay on constantly. Check the filter and the exhaust duct to make sure all air flow is unobstructed. Otherwise, the machine will require service.

Is it alright to use either druer sheets or is a dryer bar preferred because my new dryer does not seem to dry clothes well

Asked by: Judi d
I apologize, but no; it is not recommended to use either dryer sheets or a dryer bar in this machine. If the unit is not drying, it is recommended to check the Lint Filter and the Exhaust Duct to make sure they are clear. Also check the breaker to ensure the unit is running fully, and that the heat has not been deactivated. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional information in this matter.

does steam fresh really work ?

just got a DLEY1701 dryer. tried the steam fresh with two garments. they came out wet and cold. I saw water dripping around while the drum was spinning. I did not see any steam whatsoever.
Asked by: captainmike
I haven't had much luck with the Steam Fresh feature, but I only tried a couple of garments. I think the key is to have more than a few in order to not come out as damp.

Is there a "no heat" dryer setting

This is sometimes called "air dry".
Asked by: Eddd
Yes. There are settings for Ultra Low on up, and then 2 sets of special cycles, Cycle 1 & Cycle 2. Air Dry is listed as one of the options under Cycle 2.
