What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer! I purchased this dryer in December 2015 but had to wait on delivery until February 2016 because it was on back order. Once the unit was installed and I started using it, I instantly fell in love with it. The quiet operation is fantastic, not to mention the cute little tune it plays once the load is finished. I also purchased the LG washer and have both items stacked; they fit perfectly in the space I have for laundry.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from F I just got my DLE 3050 dryer today. The drying AND cooling light are both on. The Machine does not get hot. I better not have to pay for a service call. It should work when you get it. This smart dryer fails

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design and function I have been using this dryer for 5 months now and have really enjoyed it. There are several wonderful features that I didn't have on my old dryer. I love the time count down and the ability to customize the cycle with heat, spin, etc. My only complaint is sometimes the sensor is a little off - for large items they may have some wet spots, but the dryer will think they are dry and end the cycle early.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drier We like that it sings to you. It uses less gas than our old drier. Very nice looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very happy with my front load machine I love how easy it is to set the type of wash you want for a particular load. Clothes come out nice & clean and ready to go into my matching LG Dryer. Besides all that it looks very stylish in my newly remodeled home..it is in plain view not behind closed doors & it looks great. I am so glad we could stack the LG Washer & Dryer for my home is quite small and space was an issue. These filled the bill on all counts.

My dryer won't start.  Smart diagnostic says "load too small,  clothes still wet".  I did try drying a single tank top & i ended up stopping the dryer before the cycle finished.  Now it powers on, lights/sounds & clicks but won't start drying cycle

What does it mean when under processing it says cooling and the dryer isn't drying the clothes?

Asked by: Deebird
We regret to read that your LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer is not drying your clothes. The Cooling light should not be constantly on. You can perform a test to see the dryer is heating by selecting the manual dry mode then selecting the highest temperature and letting the machine run for a minute and you should feel the heat. If not, you will need to schedule a repair service. Your unit also has a SmartDiagnosis™ feature so you may want to contact LG Customer Interactive Center at (800) 243-0000 and they will instruct you on when to use the feature to diagnose the problem.

The dryer does not stop. No lights are on the display. I open the door, it stops, and light comes on in drum. I close the door, light goes out, starts running & nothing on display. Why won't it shut off?

We are going to be stacking a WM3050C washer and a DLG3050W gas dryer and need to know the options for where to place the rough-in for the dryer vent in the wall (both left and rear venting). I need the stacked dryer's vent height and side measures. 

Asked by: Indrek
The only requirement for both the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Dual LED Display (Gas), Model # DLG3051W (the Electric version is the DLE3050W!) and it's matching washer the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 4.0 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Front Load Washer with ColdWash™ Technology, Model # WM3050CW is that you allow for a 5" clearance spacing for installation for both units. Both have the same height of 38 11/16" and the Stacking Kit, Model # KSTK1 does not add anything to the overall height. Regrettably, there aren't any measurements for where the location of the tabs for the knockouts for the rear and left side exhaust duct holes are, but looking at the images for the Dryer, they appear to be about 1 1/2" to maybe 2" from the bottom of the dryer which means that when stacked, the exhaust duct will be about 40 11/16" from the ground for either vent location. The male end of the duct must protrude by 1 1/2" (3.8 cm) from the Dryers Cabinet so it can be connected to the ductwork in your home. You should check with your building codes on the placement for the duct as that will ultimately be what determines where the ductwork needs to be placed or if you already have existing ductwork since all venting has to conform to local building codes...^IFV

Is the cooling light supposed to stay on?

For the first few loads, the dryer was great despite the cooling light being on, but now everything is still slightly damp when the cycle is done. The drying light and the cooling light are always on throughout the cycle. I've read that this isn't normal. Does it need to be serviced?

Does this dryer come with a drying rack?

In Home Depot's showroom it had a rack inside of it but mine was delivered without one.
Asked by: bigalbklyn
Mine didn't either. I think that is probably an add-on item.

Drying times

I am having to run this dryer 3-4 times before the clothes are dry. Is this normal? We have completely cleaned out the vent from the back of the dryer to outside. Nothing was blocking it.
Asked by: linda801
That is definitely not normal. You should check that your gas line is on to the dryer. If that's not the issue then I would play with the cycles like selecting a higher heat level. If neither of those fix the problem I would contact LG.
