What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is easy to use We recently purchase a new dryer, Model DLG4971W which is so quiet that I sometimes wonder if it is on. In addition, it is very efficient even though it has a large capacity drum for large loads. The control panel is easy to use and provides a nice range of controls to make the drying cycle more energy efficient without over drying. I would highly recommend this product because of its capacity, efficiency and ease of use. July 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This dryer is absolutely wonderful! I have been more than satisfied with the dryer. It is easy to program and every load of clothes comes out perfectly. This is a quality dryer and its performance is outstanding. July 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Dryer! We replaced a Maytag 9000 which was unable to do small loads.This dryer is able to do small loads 95% of the time which is important for some delicates and other special items. We tried this dryer on comforters and it also performed very well although we did need to run it through a couple of extra cycles. While the controls look formidable compared to some older models, even my technology challenged wife has been able to learn the settings very quickly. Large loads, small loads, it does them all and after learning the settings, clothes are dry when the alarm goes off. We have not experienced that before. July 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Drying with a Liltingly Lovely Tune I was worried about choosing a gas dryer after a lifetime of electric dryers. This LG model has a great variety of features and a beautiful chime to denote the end of the cycle. I'm really glad this choice worked out so well, because it looks like i will also need to replace my washing machine soon, too. Thanks LG! May 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works well We recently purchased this dryer (no steam option) to match the WT5680HWA to have matching capacities. We have owned the washer for 2 months and working well so far. April 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet drying and efficient My last one kept breaking so it had to be replaced. This LG is great! I like the light inside so I can see if all items are out. The lint trap is easy to clean. The cycles and adjustable settings make it easy to get the right amount of time needed to dry things without over drying. It's very quiet and plays a tune when done! But only if you want it to. April 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use, and so quick and quiet. This dryer is quiet while running, and I love the little tune it plays when the cycle is complete. It took a few cycles to adjust the drying cycle for my clothes, and noticed that it completes a full drying cycle in less time than my old dryer. It can easily handle large towel loads 7+ beach towels. The 27.5in width allowed it to fit through the doors in my older home! The only thing that was frustrating was trying to level the dryer during installation. It was hard to turn the front and back feet in the tight spot that it is located in. It would be nice if the feet auto leveled like my washer. My basement floor is not level, because it is an old home. April 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Once I learned the machine and actually read the instructions I found the machine to be great. It handles large loads well, it's quiet, it has numerous choices for drying, and it delivers what was promised. I am quite happy with this machine as well as the matching washer. Very good products in my opinion. March 27, 2015

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this gas dryer. Gas dryers use a standard 3-prong, 120V power cord. The interchangeable 3-prong and 4-prong power cords are for electric dryers only. According to page 20 of the owner’s manual, in the installation instructions, it states that the LP Conversion orifice, part number 383EEL3002D, will have to be ordered. It should then be installed by a qualified gas technician, and the change should be noted on the dryer itself.
