A revolutionary spin on laundry.

A revolutionary spin on laundry.

LG puts a modern design spin on the traditional top load laundry pair. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 127 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great. I really like it. So far the best dryer I ever purchased. My Son was like wow, when he seen it. June 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet and efficient LG 7.3 Cu. Ft. 9-Cycle Ultra-Large Capacity Gas Dryer. Consumer reports ranked this #1. Love it. Lots of options to choose from for programming and is quiet. I've always had a gas dryer and even though it costs a little extra up front, it saves so much over the life of the machine. I live in an area where electricity is expensive. June 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding Product We needed a dryer after selling ours with our old home. My wife accepted a second-hand unit as a temporary. it didn't fit into the space of the built-in cabinets. We looked for a unit with front controls, not needing a stand or storage drawer and manageable dry times. This unit fit the bill exactly. BIG BONUS-- it was cheaper than the same identical model on sale at the local home improvement store, and, available quicker. We couldn't be happier with this unit. June 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good product for the price! good product! Has lots of good features and easy to use! June 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This dryer has been great! Works excellent. Dries close quickly and efficiently. Very quiet. Easy to use cycles that have everything I need. June 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Promised features delivered! Because my new LG washer was such an exceptional buy, I decided to look for LG again for replacing my old dryer. This again, was a wise decision. I've only had this dryer for 2+ months, but it's been delivering on the features I've needed it for. I'll let other reviewer touch on all the great features that this dryer had. I'll just add that I needed my dress shirts, slacks, etc. dry and wrinkle free. This thing does it. End of story. I'm just a guy who wanted the less effort spent doing laundry the better. Both my LG washer and dryer helped me achieve that goal. I'm very pleased with this dryer. June 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dryer; efficient and quiet We really like the features and great drying capacity on this clothes dryer. May 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great dryer Very happy with my new dryer and the saleperson was very informative and took care of all my needs. May 23, 2014

Answer: 
All dryers are front loader.

When they say "top loader" or "front loader" they are referring to the style that matches the washing machine.

A front loader washing machine has a different door than the top loader, and the dryers match.

So even though a "top loader" dryer has the door in the front, it will match the "top loader" dryer. Here is a photo of my "top loader" dryer with my top loader washer.

Answer: 
This may be a bit confusing but the website is correct. Even though ALL dryers have their doors in the front, there are two categories: FRONT- and TOP-loaders. Top-loaders are paired with the top loading washers and like the washer have the control panes on TOP (just like this model here).

Font-loader look very different, they ALWAYS the the control panel in the FRONT, have a glass door, and match up with our front-loading washer. - another difference is that Front Loaders are stackable.

I'm attaching an image to show, the different look of a front-loader. Thank you for your question :)

Answer: 
The dryer does have the vent located near the bottom (pointing toward the rear). It didn't need any special venting kit when I installed it. I did use a low-profile vent kit to keep it near the wall, though.

Answer: 
Your new dryer is shipped to vent to the rear. It can also be configured to vent to the bottom or side (right-side venting is not available on gas models).
An adapter kit, part number 383EEL9001B, may be purchased from your LG retailer. This kit contains the necessary duct components to change the dryer vent location.

Answer: 
3/8 inch approved tubing may be used where lengths are less than 20 ft. (6.1 m). Larger tubing should be used for lengths in excess of 20 ft. (6.1 m).
Connect the dryer to your laundry room’s gas supply using a new flexible stainless steel connector with a 3/8 inch NPT fitting.
As it turns out I do not have the information on a specific connector model number, please get in touch with the Best Buy team to find out what they have available for you: www.forums.bestbuy.com

(For LP gas: If necessary, the correct orifice (for the LP, orifice kit order part number 383EEL3002D) should be installed by a qualified technician and the change should be noted on the dryer.)

Im trying to decide between the DLG1102W and DLG4871W. I noticed the DLG1102w has almost no reviews so im hesitant to buy. Are the components basically the same?

Answer: 
I have the DLG1102W, and I LOVE it. It dries cotton/normal in only 41 minutes, and it takes 55 minutes to dry a full load of towels. It does not have a steam setting, but I've never tried "cleaning" my clothes with only steam, anyway. If I want them clean I wash them.

Ensure that you clean the ducts that vent outside before you install whichever unit you buy. I used the Hey Tom dryer cleaner from flylady.net, but you can also use a service or a chimney sweep. Cleaning the ducts will keep your dryer working efficiently and prevent fires.

Answer: 
The DLG4871W is a very new model and therefore has less reviews so far.
Two differences: It has an Easy Front Control Panel with LED Display and a Freshen Up program (the DLG4871W doesn't).

Thank you. We appreciate your feedback, please give us a “thumbs up” if this answer is helpful to you; and please let us know if we can assist you with anything else.
