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.

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).

Can I get an instruction sheet for the 383EEL3002D LP Conversion Kit?

I have a technician who needs the instructions for disassembling the dryer DLG1102W in order to install the orifice for LP conversion (383EEL3002D). Unfortunately, the instructions did not come with the kit. May I please get a copy of them? Thanks!

Answer: 
We had the same problem. It was sooooo hard to remove the front panel. The technician said that every year LP comes out with new models, so it makes it hard to know everything about every model. He was a licensed gas/appliance technician, as indicated was required by the conversion part. The little instruction sheet that came with the orifice did not cover how to remove the panel, because it likely works with different models. And the owners manual did not cover that, either. When I called LG, they said that they do not have instructions, likely because they don't want homeowners trying to do this themselves.

In our case, the sheet metal of the front panel was actually hung up on the inside of the dryer. He had to free it, and then the panel came right out. He removed all of the screws from the front of the dryer.

As he was working on it, I told him we were gong to be left with a pile of parts, with only the front panel still standing. But that's what the problem was - there was a little lip on the metal that was hung up on the dryer drum inside.

Answer: 
Unfortunately, we do not have conversion instructions available to provide, as we are not qualified gas technicians or installers. The instructions should have been located on the back of the range next to the gas pressure regulator.

It's about 29" front to back, but you need a bit more clearance for the ductwork and plug.

Answer: 
23 inches from the back of the unit. But you have to include about a minimum of 8 inches for the gas line and duct exhaust so that would be 30 inches out from the wall. We have cabinets above and this is a perfect distance. We can still nicely reach into the cabinets - even the top shelf. The biggest plus is now the room lighting brightens the front panel and the panel is not dark if it were to exist in the back of the dryer unit.

Function meets fabulous as LG rethinks every aspect of traditional dryer design. Angles are softened with streamlined contours. And instead of a panel in the back with knobs and dials, LG has designed an Easy Front Control Panel with LED Display. It’s never been easier to choose the ideal setting, including the handy Wrinkle Care option when you’re pressed for time. Because efficiency means as much to you as style, LG brings you 7.3 cu. ft. capacity. And larger loads save you time and energy. How sweet is that?
