What People Are Saying

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 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 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.

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?
Asked by: dryerprobs2015
We regret to read that your LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Dual LED Display (Gas), Model # DLG3051W is not drying your clothes. The Cooling light should not be constantly on, that is unusual. Is your unit producing any heat at all. You can perform a test to see if it is 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...^IFV

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.

Dyer Vent on the side

I am planning to install washer/dryer in my closet which is 30.5 inches deep. Is it possible to side vent on this machine.
Asked by: pmehta
Hello pmehta. Your inquiry is appreciated. Although the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Dual LED Display (Gas), Model # DLG3051W is shipped configured to vent to the rear, it can be configured to vent to the left hand side, right hand side venting is not possible on Gas models. You will need to purchase an adapter kit, part # 3911EZ9131X which can be purchased from your LG retailer or from any LG Authorized Parts Distributor...^IFV

Can you change the direction of the swing on the door on this dryer (so that it swings left instead of right when you open it).

Asked by: schien
Yes, the delivery man did this for me in about 2 minutes.

Will it stack on WM2650HWA?

Will the DLG3051 dryer stack on the LG washer WM2650HWA?
Asked by: DoctorDetroit
We appreciate your interest in this washer and dryer set. Both of these models have 27” cabinets, which will be compatible for stacking.

What is maximum hourly electrical energy consumption rate for DLG3051?

I am off-grid. I own the units, bought for use in the new house once my off-grid system is built. I really need some indication of how much 120VAC power the unit draws (max will do) when it is running. Have to have peak power consumption data to size the DC>AC inverter. At the moment, all I would have available for that estimate would be the voltage x amp rating of the overload protection specified. 120VAC x 15Amp breaker= 1800 Watts.

We appreciate your interest in this gas dryer. The information already listed is that which has been recommended for proper operation of this dryer. We have no other specifications to suggest.

What are the venting requirements for gas dryers?

Asked by: Nkratz
the specific requirements are listed in the owners manual. short story...4 inch metal ductwork pipe works best. keep turns to absolute minimum possible. gas dryers must vent to the outside.
