Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer This is my second LG dryer and I am now and will always be a fan of these units. They have a wonderful variety of features. The LG company has included all of the necessary options for helping to make laundry day much less tedious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product for a BIG family We have 4 kids and a dog. This thing is great. The only thing I wish it had was an easier way to clean out the dryer vent area. The lint screen does a good job, but stuff gets through there and gets caked on pretty good. I had to make something out of a plastic tube to connect to my vacuum to get in there and suck it out. Even then, I don't get all the stuff in there. I am sure it is not a specific problem to this machine as it has happened with all my dryers in the past. But, maybe the R&D department could come up with a new access door or something that would make routine cleaning a little easier. That being said, we love it and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has a very large capacity. This dryer has a very large capacity - able to dry down pillows, blankets, towels along with regular laundry. Many cycles to choose from and you can even customize those. I'd buy this again.

Can Washer model # WH1377HW stack with this Dryer (DLGX3251W)? Or do only certain models stack?

Bought this Dryer last summer (2014) and now need to replace washing machine. Would like to buy washer that will stack with my existing dryer. Technical specs on both dryer and washer listed require same stacking kit (KSTK2).
Asked by: spacesaver
Hi Spacesaver. Thank you for your interest in these models. Just to clarify, did you mean the LG 2.3 cu. ft. Large Capacity 24” Compact Large Capacity Front Load Washer, Model # WM1377HW (You wrote WH1377HW?). The Matching Dryer for the WM1377HW is the LG 24" Compact Ventless Electric Front Load Dryer, Model # DLEC855W which comes packaged with a stacking kit. The DLGX3251W would not fit on the WM1377HW, they have different widths. The WM1377HW has a width of 24" as does its matching Dryer. The DLGX3251W has a width of 27" and requires a Stacking Kit, Model # KSTK1. The washer that matches the DLGX3251W is Model # WM3250HW and make sure you get the Stacking Kit Model # KSTK1. That is designed for washers and dryers with a width of 27". The KSTK2 stacking kit is designed for washers and dryers with a width of 29"!...^IFV

What part to mount to the WDP4W pedestal?

I got the pedestal at a scratch-and-dent sale, so it came with no hardware (screws, etc). What part(s) do I need to order to mount this to the pedestal (WDP4W)?

Natural Gas to Propane Conversion

Just purchased a DLGX3251V gas dryer need to convert to propane. I keep getting conflicting answers on which orifice kit to buy so currently I have bought both. The part # is 3833EEL3002D which is what it says in the owners manual and I also am being told that it is part #3833EEL3002A what is the difference? and which one do I need help!!!
Asked by: Staceyjay
We appreciate your interest in this dryer and its features. In reviewing our records on these parts, the 383EEL3002A and the 383EEL3002D are interchangeable on this particular dryer. Either can be used. As the owner’s manual suggests the 383EEL3002D, this of the two would be more readily recommended. This component should be installed by a qualified technician and the change should be noted on the dryer.
