Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It I love this dryer! It has so many settings to choose from. I especially like the bulky/bedding setting for my quilts. It dries everything beautifully May 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Dryer We have owned our LG dryer for just over one month and so far my say's it's great. It drys faster than our old dryer, my wife loves the settings on this dryer. We bought this dryer just over one month ago and so far we are in love with it. The main reason we bought an LG product was the consumer report on the excellent reliability of LG dryers. Would I tell a friend about our LG dryer and recommend it yes I would. April 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing!!!! I can't say enough how much i love this dryer. we have two teenagers who wear clothes for one minute and then it's into the dirty clothes hamper so i do laundry every other day and i use to hate it with our other dryer that took 2 cycles to dry them all. but with this, It's once and done and i love it. March 24, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Broken on arrival Steam system was broken and it just dumped water into the dryer tub and soaked all the clothes. March 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Great feature-set and quality, super performance Excellent washer, with a great feature-set. The steam wash option works great, and the HE features are wonderful. Auto-sense makes sure your clothes come out dry in the most optimum time. Definitely recommend. March 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome purchase Happy to say that I'm glad to of purchased this particular series and as a combo set, lots of great features, how they changed, and very quiet compared to your basic dryers, better quality and stylish. I have owned the products for a few months, so far so good, crossing my fingers. Hope their warranty program is as value and worth the added purchase. March 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Huge Capacity The dryer drum is huge. You can dry bed comforter with no problems. It is expensive and takes some getting used to. Haven't figured out the steam yet, but I'm working on it. January 14, 2015

Answer: 
Open the door and remove the two plastic hole caps on the catch side by gently prying them up with a flat blade screwdriver. Save these for later. While supporting the door, remove the 4 screws (2 from each hinge). Set the door aside, face down on a protected surface, to prevent damage to the door or the work surface. Remove the 16 screws on each side of the door and lift off the inner door frame using a flat blade screwdriver. Remove the latch hook and blank and move them to the opposite side. Remove the 4 screws securing the hinges to the door frame. Remove the 2 plastic cover caps. Reinstall the hinges and cover caps on the opposite sides from which they were removed. With the hinges and cover caps in the new locations, remount the inner door frame onto the outer door frame with the screws removed previously. Reinstall the door onto the hinges, now located on the opposite side of the cabinet. Reapply the 2 plastic hole caps. Test the swing of the door to make sure the hinges and latch are properly aligned, and that the door closes and latches properly.

Is the DLGX5681W energystar?

I can get a rebate from NJ if my new unit is energystar rated. I can't tell if this unit is or not. Is it?
