What People Are Saying

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 110 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features. I like the conveniently placed water dispenser. Steam cleaning works well. The dryer runs quietly and very efficiently. Clothes are not wrinkled. July 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the only dryer to have Have had this dryer a little over two months now and we have loved it since the first day we used it. So so easy to operate. It is a steam dryer where you add the water in a container on the top. I like this much better than having to have someone come out and run a water line to the dryer. We haven't used the steam function yet but it will be very easy to use and we will definitely be using this steam function. When setting the time for drying a certain type of load it will show so much time to dry but with the sensing system the time showing at the beginning of the cycle is usually cut in half. Our clothes come out and they are not wrinkled like they were with our old dryer. This dryer is very very quiet. We love it and our matching LG washing machine. A great product from LG. July 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product! This dryer is great--I love the stainless steel drum and the see-thru door. The features are easy to use and the combinations are endless. The dryer is extremely well built and I would buy it again, along with the matching washer, in a heart beat. July 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best dryer ever owned. Excellent dryer, this dryer drys the clothes on the first settings, unlike my previous dryer(s) which took about two to three tries. Love all the additional features and it even looks great. May 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Multiple drying option allow for customized drying I have been very pleased with this dryer and the many drying options it offers. If I'm in a hurry I can select one of the standard options or when I need to be a bit more particular, I can tailor my drying choices. We also have an LG washer, purchased at least a year before the dryer, and have been pleased with it. No problems yet. Have not used the steam process. The dryer filter does need cleaning frequently. May 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love this dryer Great dryer....costs a lot, but it has a lot of great features. My favorite, the light in the drum. Too many cycle selections, but I wanted all the bells and whistles. Put this machine on a surge protector...it's not just a dryer, it's a computer. May 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very satisfied with this dryer I read many reviews of different dryers and have to agree with the consistently positive reviews of this dryer. Lots of drying options, easy to use, dries well and the drying rack is great. I've only had it for several weeks, so I can't comment on durability or long-term use, but I am happy with this purchase and plan to look at a matching LG washer; this was my first LG appliance purchase. May 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by sensor dry I had set the dryer for a 41 minute dry following removal of a large bathroom rug from the load of clothes previously run. I was upset to hear the dryer stop within ten minutes. Upon checking the clothes, they were all dry. The dryer turned itself off responding to the sensor dry feature. My dryer is in an out of the way location so I was totally unaware and pleasantly surprised by this feature. Just another perk. May 5, 2014

Answer: 
I apologize, but no; it is not recommended to use any sort of oil or other fragrance additive in the steam compartment of the dryer. The use of such can cause improper sealing in the tank and water valves, which can result in water flowing into the dryer. Water alone should be added to this tank.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in the proper installation of this gas dryer. Use a 4” diameter, rigid or semi-rigid metal duct for your ventilation. The male end of each section of exhaust duct must point away from the dryer. This information is located on page 18 of the owner’s manual. The gas valve, on the back of the dryer, is a 3/8” connection and is configured to use Natural Gas from the factory. The gas shut-off valve must be installed within 6’ of the dryer. Use only a new stainless steel flexible AGA/CSA-Certified gas line. Installation of the gas lines must be performed by a qualified installer, service agency, or gas supplier. This information is found on page 20 of your owner’s manual.

We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this dryer. The SIGNAL alarm is designed to be ON or OFF by way of the SIGNAL button. Once it is ON, the tone should be present for each cycle completion.
