What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great extra features. Best dryer we ever purchased, uses less energy and dries faster than conventional dryers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

What do we do when the dryer doesn't truly dry?

We have had our dryer for just over eighteen months now and during the last four months or so the dryer has not performed well, we have cleaned the filters front and back, cleaned the tub. Placed smaller loads in for drying and we still have to take our items out to hang up to completely dry them. I see that others are having similar issues with this particular dryer, is there a problem that we the consumer have not been made aware of with this product? I hope there is an answer to this problem somewhere in your data banks that can assist with this problem, I thank you in advance for your assistance with this matter!

How do I troubleshoot when the dryer will not turn off

The dryer does not stop running when the cycle ends. The power button has no effect. The display turns off in both cases, but the dryer continues to rotate. The only way to stop the rotation is to unplug it from the wall. The unit is less than 1 year old. How do I fix this?

I am looking for a gas dryer with side vent option

The venting needs to be out of the right side of the appliance, not out the back with an elbow directing it to the side. It says 3-way venting on the website but then says rear only on the specs. Can you confirm that it is possible to modify the venting to come out of the side of the actual dryer? I am looking at DLG2251W.
Asked by: ihatechoosinganickname
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.

Length of vent duct (gas model)

For the gas model what is the maximum length of the vent duct?
Asked by: Wren
Hello, I am attaching a chart for you from the manual. The maximum length depends on the set up you have (how many elbow connections you need, etc) - the manual has all the details on pages 18-20: http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-DLG2251W

What is the product number for the bottom venting kit?

The manual says that 383EEL9001B is the product number for the correct bottom venting adapter kit but when I search for it online I get results for 3911EZ9131X, which then does not list dryer model DLG2251W as a compatible model. Which venting adapter kit do I need to get?
Asked by: LHR1
We appreciate your interest in this side/bottom venting kit. According to our Parts Department, it appears that the 3911EZ9131X is designed to operate in place of the 383EEL9001B venting kit. Accessories can be obtained through our parts distributor, MCM Electronics. Their contact number, for placing orders, is 800-824-9491.
