What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work great! I've been using these for three months and they are excellent. They have all the settings to get my clothes done the way I want. They have huge barrels! And they do not rip my bulky comforters. I wouldn't want any other pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous Dryer Definitely a step up from my previous Dryer - I was excited to use the Steam Cycle on the Dryer however got to tell you. Be careful. Do not put anything on this cycle that says to tumble on low - it will scorch your fabric. Ruined a silk lined linen comforter learning the hard way. For the positives - I love the cycle selections being on the front of the unit and the door opening two ways is brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dryer we have ever owned. My wife and I have been using this dryer for approximately nine months and are totally pleased with the way it has performed for us.The electronic automation is way beyond expectation, and the options available to us are many and easy to use.The knobless control panel with the selections right in front are convenient and always clear and clean. It is very quiet during the cycle, you have to strain to make certain it is on and running. Cleaning the lint filter is a breeze. We could not be more-pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Steam Feature Rocks! My previous dryer seemed to leave many items of clothing wrinkled. This LG is far better at letting me pull out ready-to-wear clothes! And if anything needs an extra touch up, I now have the steam cycle that works like a charm. And who thought of a little jingle to let me know "We're dry" instead of an annoying buzzer? So sweet. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Washer! I bought this almost 2 years ago and have had no trouble with it. It is a good washer. But if I had to do over again I would not buy a washer with the controls on the front like this one. I thought it would be easier to see but in fact it is easier to accidentally turn the machine off. Also my kitties walk on it and hit buttons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The door is a back saver I love many things about this LG dryer, but my favorite is the dual opening door. Loading is so easy and emptying is also. However, I equally enjoy the "wrinkle free" cycle and the steamer cycle. I don't think the permanent press cycle is quite long enough. If there is a way to adjust this cycle, I haven't found it.

Regrettably there aren't any specifications for how many kilowatts per hour the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity High Efficiency Front Control SteamDryer™ w/ EasyLoad™ Door, Model # DLEY1701WE will consume. However, if it is of any help, based on the Combined Energy Factor and an annual usage of 283 cycles per year as referenced by the U.S. Department of Energy test procedure, it has an Estimated Annual Energy Use of 607 kWh/yr. The actual energy consumption will vary depending on your usage patterns, how often you run the dryer, what cycle you select and the load size...^IFV
