What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great buy We bought this dryer a few weeks ago and are extremely happy with it. Dryer is quiet and efficient. Great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, easy to use I brought this dryer on short notice but so glad I did. Easy to operate, fast dry time. I read reviews after I got it home and people had complained it was noisy, I disagree. It’s quiet, a bit of noise but it doesn’t wake the kids. Definitely recommend it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like my new dryer, finally figuring out how to set it to get all clothes dry the first time. The Energy Saver feature often leaves the clothes damp and I have to run it multiple times for one load.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving It !! I absolutely love all the options available for drying. Features easy to see and use. LG is a great line of product(s). Not our 1st one and won't be our last!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from poor quality, loud This is my second LG dryer. The quality has diminished and the unit is loud. Surprised the drum is not stainless (purchased over the phone - unit matches washer purchased a few months ago.) I have the units stacked as i did the previous pair, dryer rattles during the washed spin cycle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from already needs a repair this is my second LG washer after being happy with the first. After 3 months, there is a loud "flapping" noise during the spin cycle. Also found metal pieces in the drainage filter. This model is much louder than my last in general. Also, much flimsier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The capacity is good, height and width fit in original space replacing a Frigidaire dryer. The musical chime is a little surprising and something new in which to acclimate. I'm still getting used to the different settings and buttons, but I like so far. I bought the pedestal to go with it, and it's a disappointment. It is about the same size as the previous dryer's pedestal, but it isn't deep enough under the dryer to hold a gallon container of bleach or anything else that tall or taller.

What is the CFH or BTU/hr capacity? All I found is the pressure requirements.

How to light pilot light on gas dryer DLG3171W 

Asked by: Kim E
We appreciate your interest in this gas range. This model is not designed with a pilot light. When the knob for the burner is activated, this will start the use of an electric igniter to catch the gas and light the flame.

Dryer is making fire alarm go off and I would like to turn off the steam function associated with dryer. Would just like to use heat only thru vented duct and take away problems with condensation on closet door ( I have to keep closed so fire alarm off

Asked by: Jefd
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced during the use of this dryer. Generally, the STEAM options have to be activated manually before they are used. To prevent any such usage, you might attempt to utilize the TIMED DRY function, rather than one of the other presets.
