Big time saver

Big time saver

Do laundry a little less often. With 7.3 cubic feet of capacity, this dryer handles really large loads. Saving you time and energy.

Think you can’t do laundry on the go? Think Again.

Expand the limits of your laundry room with the LG SmartThinQ® app. Select a cycle, start or stop the wash and get notifications about when your laundry will be done, all from your smartphone. It even works with the Google Assistant, so you can manage your laundry with simple voice commands.

Open Up to Convenience

The dual-opening options of the LG EasyLoad™ door make loading and unloading the dryer easier than ever. Transferring wet clothes from the washer? Simply press the release button and pull the door down, hamper style to keep that stray sock from hitting the floor. Removing dry items? Swing the door to the side to clear the way for your basket below. Even tight spaces and challenging laundry-room layouts are no match for versatility like this.

Really dry clothes

Really dry clothes

What’s worse than pulling clothes out of the dryer and finding they’re still damp? Our Sensor Dry system measures the moisture levels during the cycle and automatically adjusts the drying time, to help ensure you get dry laundry every time.

Get wise

Get wise

If you ever experience an issue with your LG dryer, you don't have to worry. The SmartDiagnosis™ feature helps the service center diagnose problems over the phone, or with a simple app on your smart phone, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.

Count on it

When you buy a washer, you want something reliable that you can count on. Because the Direct Drive Motor uses fewer moving parts and operates more efficiently, LG confidently backs the motor with a 10-year limited warranty.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with dryer and would recommend to friends
Date published: 2018-02-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily Handles Big Loads Bought a little over a month ago and so far so good. Handles big loads with ease.
Date published: 2018-02-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice features easy to use. Not complicated Have had this dryer for a month and are happy with it so far. The only problem we have is that the dry sensor turns the dryer off before the clothes are thoroughly dry. Shirt collars and sleeves are still damp. We have to take out the clothes that are dry and leave the damp ones in the dryer for another cycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Love the dual door-hamper and regular opening door. Also love when the cycle is complete, the light comes on. The different cycles were very easy to figure out. The only thing I wish it had is a buzzer for the end of cycle instead of a chime. My washer has a chime for end of cycle and I never know which chime is going off. All new appliances seem to have chimes now instead of buzzers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dryer, just a couple suggestions We’ve now had this dryer for a couple weeks and it works great. The only “complaints” we have are 1-Love the door opening left to right & top to bottom, but it won’t lay completely flat, just 45degrees 2-Very annoying song/alarm when load done, you can turn it off but if you want a signal, it’s annoying.
Date published: 2018-02-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Problems The Dryer works with no problems. The feature that shows me to clean the filter outside is very good.
Date published: 2018-02-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Class I never thought we would look forward to doing laundry. This LG dryer, along with the matching washer are pure class and we bought these units about a month ago and have never looked back. Sorry, I have to go. Time for laundry.

What is the vent heat temp when drying on high setting?

Asked by: Ako88
The vent heat temperature when drying on a high setting in the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.3 cu. ft. Super Capacity Gas Dryer with Sensor Dry Technology, Model # DLG7201WE will vary depending on several external factors. On cooler days, the temperature will be less than it would be on a hotter day. How long you run the dryer will also impact how hot the temperature is as the air is expelled out. How big and moist a load you dry will also determine how hot it is. The more clothes you dry, the more the heat used to dry is absorbed by the clothes and the wetter the clothes are when they come out of your washer, the less the temperature of the air that is expelled. You would need to physically measure the temperature to determine how hot it is and even then, it will vary depending on the above factors...^IFV
