What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 138 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Gas Dryer This dryer surpassed our expectations. It has been easy to use and was easy to set up. We only wish our LG inverter direct-drive motor drum washer could have offered the same experience. It was a disappointment. May 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by quiet and efficient my wife and I have 7 children we do lots of laundry this load capacity has reduced time tremendously love the rack no bang bang bang while drying the kids shoes March 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features This is a great dryer. Going to an LG was an upgrade for us and our first purchase. After using other dryers we were very impressed that we cut our drying time in half. All of the settings and features are helpful for our delicates to our durable wear clothing. February 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by One Happy Spouse! This was a Christmas surprise and upgrade to match our LG Washer, which we love too. My spouse was so excited and loves this new gas dryer. She says it drys so much faster than the old model and holds more as well. She loves the Steam option and the rack to let shoes dry. Great product! January 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best dryer I've ever owned!!! Bought this dryer because of the features. I have a large family (10). This dryer is a God send. We do a lot of laundry a week. The dryer drys extra large loads of clothes in 45 to 50 mintues. I have used every feature, it's great. I steaned my sons heavy winter jacket, it came out like new, smelled wonderful. I steamed my grandchildrens stuffed animals and again came out clean and fresh. This dryer does everything it claims to and more. I save time and money not having to redry clothes. Steam features saves time and money not having to take things to the dry cleaners. Wonderful product! !! Will only by LG from now on. December 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by In a class of its own.Superior Performance. The perfect dryer. Will handle any task assigned with exceptional results. Stylish and extremely quiet. Can't wait to get the matching washer. December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like this dryer Dryer performs well with options to customize exactly how you'd like your clothes dried. December 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a really large capacity dryer, works great I bought this dryer as a set along with an LG large capacity washer. I got a great deal on the set and my wife has been very pleased with how easily it operates, and loves all of the great features this dryer has. This is our first LG appliance, and we are very happy with it. With a family of 5,we really needed ythe large capacity this dryer has, and although we haven't yet tried the steam function, I'm sure we will soon. November 20, 2014

re lg gas dryer 5171

hi, do you need a separate hose for the steam function? if so, do you have to buy the washer for it to work? also does the 5170 model steam function work as well since you just fill the water holder when you want steam ? thanks! Cheryl

Answer: 
You do not need a water hose for the steam function, you just fill the reservoir. I have not used it yet but my friend has the same dryer and loves the option.

I'm reading that the clothes sometimes come out damp and not completely dry because of the Sensory Dry option. can that be turned off or not used if I want to set my own time for drying?

Specifically, I am wondering if I can run the dryer vent from the right side of the unit. I am trying to avoid running the vent from the back and losing valuable space in my laundry room.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Thanks.
