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.

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.

The quick fix

The quick fix

Late for the party and no time to iron your favorite outfit? The SteamFresh™ Cycle refreshes, and reduces wrinkles in up to five garments at a time with one 20-minute dryer cycle.

Wash the unwashable

You probably wish you could clean your throw pillows or children’s toys. With the SteamSanitary™ Cycle, you can. It uses steam to safely sanitize items marked as non-washable.

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.

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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too Much We purchased this back in July because Home Depot recommended. This is our first smart dryer. There are a lot to learn with all the fancy buttons. We had a very bad start. Dryer was delivered and was damaged then we found out a small part internal was defective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome percise control over all types of material I read reviews of damp drying, the different types of fabrics, different drying times. If something a little heavier in material I just leave in on a time control settings. I love my dryer, Nothing has come out wrinkled, Thank you for making my chores easy. Love the signal tone of completion. I have to say so quiet!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks beautiful but..... Nice looking machine that does not seem to dry whatever is in it very well. Also, it does not have a hand wash cycle. The drying cycles take a lot longer than my old 20 year old dryer, and it doesn't dry as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to load, stops when clothes dry I am glad I bought this dryer, it is much more efficient at drying the clothes. It is fast and turns off when the clothes are dry. I also used the steam feature once when I wanted to get some wrinkles out of a shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer I bought this dryer a few months ago and love it. The steam dry is great for my delicate clothing. The quick dry can handle a pretty big load when I'm in rush and need to have the laundry folded or an item to wear to go to work or out. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent features Steam feature works great. Had to switch the way the door opens. Was easy but the manual left out a few details. The video referenced in the manual was very clear and detailed.
