What People Are Saying

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 50 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great extra features. Best dryer we ever purchased, uses less energy and dries faster than conventional dryers. December 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Features and good price We purchased this unit in January and we like the features the dryer has. The only thing I wish it had was a volume control for the end of cycle (very quite), other than that this is a great unit. May 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This dryer is the best we've had in 25 years We bought this to replace an older other brand dryer and it is the best value out there.It almost makes you want to do laundry.. May 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Almost perfect I really like this dryer. Clothes dry quickly, machine runs quietly. Lots of variety of settings. Two more things would make it perfect. 1) My clothes seem to come out wrinkled, no matter what settings or combination of features I use. 2) The cute music has only one sound level. It is hard to hear it unless I am in the next room. April 9, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Does not work! This product does not dry my clothes in a timely fashion. I find that I have to keep restarting the drying process, because at the end of a cycle, my clothes are still damp. I purchased this at Best buy, and I called their repair man. He did not find the problem. He said that there was heat. But after a drying cycle, my clothes are not dry! March 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extraordinary product, great value for money We bought a bundle - a drier and the washer. Both are amazingly easy to operate. The controls are smooth and precise. Even I can produce the same top results as my wife with this machine. Great stuff. The word of caution: watch the installers. My first bunch of mechanics cut corners and did not install according to LG instruction sheets which are inside the machines. So ask your seller to show you the instructions and read them and check on the installation process. E.g. my first installers said that the hoses and the hose fixture were not supplied by LG, which was a downright lie. When I discovered this I advised the seller and they sent another team to correct the installation. January 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by so far, 2 months in, all good But really now, for the money, ask me in 5 years, or better yet 10, like my old one. It was still working just great after 10 years, but I moved & didn't want to ship a 10 year old appliance. If I can post a follow up in 5, that would really mean something. This machine is easy to use, works great. But the only draw back with this machine, is it doesn't have a small load setting, but frankly, it uses so little of anything, that's not a concern of mine. January 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is very easy to operate Not only is this easy to operate but it does an amazing job and is very versitile. I highly recommend this product. January 3, 2014

Answer: 
As shipped from the factory, this dryer is configured for use with natural gas. It can be converted for use with LP (Liquefied Propane) gas. Gas pressure must not exceed 13 inches of water column.A qualified service or gas company technician must connect the dryer to the gas service.

I am interested in a modestly priced LG model gas dryer. Consumer Reports rated the DLG2241 quite highly but my local retail store only have the DLG2251. Can you please tell me what the difference is? There was no rating by consumer reports on the DLG2251 - is there a reason for that? Thank you

Answer: 
Depending on the settings of the unit, and the features available on it, yes, it may be possible to increase the volume of the End-of-Cycle signal. We would need the model number of the product in question, in order to provide this information. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

My apologies for the delay, I was trying to find the answer to your question but as it turns out, the information is not available to me at the moment.

Yes, left-side venting is available
(only right-side venting is not available on gas models).

Thank you, have a great week!
