Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Dryer We purchased this dryer a couple of months ago and couldn't be happier with our purchase. There are many options to chose from to dry your clothes as well as it is very easy to operate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent appliance The LG gas dryer is companion to a matching LG washer, a very nice laundry pair. Very easy to install using the supplied instructions, it is very quiet in operation and has many choices of cycles and temperatures if you want to customize the process. Otherwise, the standard cycles work well. Finding the correct dryer rack was a bit of a challenge but that was accomplished through perseverance and the assistance of the LG support staff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are very pleased with this dryer I purchased this dryer for my mother who is 85 years old and does not like to learn to use new things. There are not many gas dryers available and we chose this one because it seemed reasonably priced and since it was LG, we thought it would likely be of good quality. My mother learned to use it the very first load she dried and she is very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer! I have had this dryer a couple of months and love it. I like the style and use of the top for folding clothes. The dryer drys the clothes well at any selection and the choice is wonderful. The signal is audible from any room but yet not too loud. The size of the drum is also a nice plus. Great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bit different....but, in a great way! I did a lot of research prior to purchasing my LG washer/dryer. I'm not fond of front loaders, and after using the new top loader, I'm really glad I did! The layout of controls out front is not only ingenious, but very user friendly. I've had the washer/dryer for a little over three months, and I couldn't be happier with them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dryer has a huge drum!! I love all the features on the dryer. I love that I can fit a comforter in the dryer and it actually dries it!! I had to get a new dryer because we had a flood in our basement and I am thrilled with my purchase.

I need to know what kind of hose and size hose I need to hook up my dryer

I have model DLG1002W and need the exact hose size
Asked by: Bleek
We appreciate your interest in this dryer and its proper assembly. According to the specifications listed on page 17 of the owner’s manual, the exhaust duct must be 4 inches in diameter with no obstructions. The exhaust duct should be kept as short as possible. The total length of flexible metal duct work should not exceed 8 feet in length.

Is there a side venting kit available for the DLG1002W Gas Dryer

This question was asked before and the answer was a support web site. There was no such kit available through the web site. My question is whether this kit exists at all. I want to buy this dryer, but probably cannot because there is not enough space in the back for venting.
Asked by: PotentialLGDryerBuyer
Check out side venting kit 3911EZ9131X as listed in the technical specifications as an option. I have no personal information about this item. There are also some rear venting options that are very compact and inexpensive, approximately 3" thick.

Can this model gas dryer accommodate a 100 ft vent run? If not does LG make one that can?

Asked by: mjest
Hi mjest. The LG DLG1002W Dryer like any other dryer must meet the requirements as stipulated in the International Residential Code (IRC) SECTION M1502 CLOTHES DRYER EXHAUST guidelines which states that "The maximum length of a clothes dryer exhaust duct shall not exceed 25 feet (7,620 mm) from the dryer location to the wall or roof termination. The maximum length of the duct shall be reduced 2.5 feet (762 mm) for each 45-degree (0.8 rad) bend, and 5 feet (1,524 mm) for each 90-degree (1.6 rad) bend. The maximum length of the exhaust duct does not include the transition duct." This means that vents should also be as straight as possible and cannot be longer than 25 feet. Any 90-degree turns in the vent reduce this 25-foot number by 5 feet, since these turns restrict airflow...^IFV

will my new gas dryer come with an lp conversion kit

Asked by: bandit1
We appreciate your interest in this gas dryer. The 383EEL3002D LP Orifice Kit must be ordered separately, and should be installed by a qualified gas technician, and the change should be noted on the dryer.

DLG1002W Gas Dryer Venting Question

Assuming the DLG1002W gas dryer can be vented from the right side using an adapter kit, how much space between the right side of the dryer and the wall is required? Also, if the dryer is vented from the right side, can the back of the dryer be positioned flush against the back wall? Thank you.
Asked by: Slip
could be flush with wall and vented directly through wall and in that case could be up against back wall

I recently purchased this dryer and it stopped drying my laundry. on the display screen it flashed "dry" but also shows the word "cooling". I misplaced the manual so I don't have that for a reference.
Asked by: AMZimm
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this gas dryer. If the cooling indicator stays on constantly, then it would seem the unit is not operating properly. This unit will likely 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

What is the Energy Star Rating for the DLG1002W? What is the estimated annual operating costs?

Asked by: JDallas
We appreciate your interest in this gas dryer. While this unit is more energy efficient than some other models, this unit has not been Energy Star Certified. Residential dryers are not listed by Energy Star. As estimated operating costs are generated by Energy Star, and this dryer is not rated by Energy Star, there is no listing for such an estimate.
