What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the features I like the variety of features, esp steam fresh. I also like the 2 way door very clever and comes in handy! Only downfall is it seems to take quite a while to dry (45-60min avg).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the features I have had the dryer for 4 months and this has been a great purchase so far. Love the preset drying selections and they appear appropriate based on the loads I have selected. I had not used the steam feature yet but will come back after use. Probably could have lived without it. Had a challenge getting the dryer to fit in a closet due to the extended back it was less than an inch too big. I purchased a different dryer vent to make it fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wanted to Give it 5 Stars Ok, I would like to give this dryer 5-stars but one of the reasons I purchased this one was because of the steam function. Have used the steam twice now and both times the clothes came out soaked! The 20-minute steam cycle also had to include a 30-minute dryer time also. Other than that the dryer is great - love the two way opening - makes it very easy to load and get clothes out of the dryer. Couple of cycles I had to adjust for more times but that could have been my fault for selecting the wrong cycle. Lots of functions to chose from and still working with them - all in all I have very pleased with the dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Super Dryer I bought this dryer because all children had LG washers and dryers. This is the best dryer I have ever owned. The duel position door is so unique and so very convenient. I also like the ability to use the anti wrinkle setting. So much better than having to use an iron. Best purchase I have ever made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best New Features My Maytag washer and dryer were still working so my husband and I were not really planning on purchasing... just looking so we would be ready when our 20 year old pair stops working or Christmas purchase which ever came first. After talking with a salesman at Big Sandy's, my husband said this is a no brainier purchase. We bought the washer dryer set. The features are an amazing upgrade for us. The LG pricing is just right. We have several other products from LG - Smartphone, TV's, they are quality products, and you get great customer service. We love our Dryer Washer set and Big Sandy's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this dryer! My husband and I just bought this dryer and the matching washer. I absolutely love them. I've never been excited to do laundry before, and now I can't stop doing it. It's so nice having a brand new washer and dryer after almost 15 years running on second hand ones from a friend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with my purchase I am very happy with my dryer. It has a large capacity, so less loads to wash. The only thing I would change is the placement of the buttons...I would have them to the back of the dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer with a Large Capacity! I had to replace my 12 year old washer and dryer and have always wanted LG. I purchased this dryer because I loved the capacity and the steam option. I LOVE the controls being on the front as they are very easy to see and use. The door swings out of the way for easy loading and unloading and the lint basket is conveniently located just inside the door. It even reminds you to check it! There are a lot of drying options to choose from and everything has come out perfectly dry. The large capacity allows you to dry large bulky items easily. I have nothing but good things to say about this dryer! (I love the new LG washer too!) You can't go wrong purchasing this dryer. I highly recommend it.

how many kilo watts does this dryer use per hr

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
