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

What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointment I bought this dryer a month ago because of the LG brand name. After using it for less than a month, the clothes were not complete dry. The clothes is still damp at end of full circle. The front door can be opened either side way or up and down. However, the door can not be opened fully for up and down feature, and is not quite usable. James

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dryer! We got this dryer a few months ago, and I could not be happier! The settings are simple and easy to customize. Capacity is fantastic! I can do our cal king bedding in one load and it doesn't take hours to dry!! Being LG brand is an added plus, we have other LG brands products and have had no issues, it was also the brand the sales rep suggested as the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent - Superb After much research we chose this dryer for various reasons. 1. LG is rated to have the lowest repair occurrences. 2. The door opening is large and the opening's edges are well constructed. We looked at another high-rated brand that looked similar, but when we opened the door, the opening was rather small and the metal edges flimsy. 3. The dual door (especially when you have trouble bending down) is an absolute plus. The dryers we looked at open to the site only. My previous 30-year-old dryer opened top to bottom. So we were happy to find this feature. The chute prevents the laundry from landing on the floor while loading, no bending down required. After drying you swing the door open to the site and place the laundry basket in front of the door. The door is reversible and takes a specially trained technician to make the switch. Be sure to mention that this needs to be done when you order the dryer, as it takes some additional time for the installer to reverse the door. 4. Initially, we had purchased a less expensive LG dryer and were dissatisfied with the wrinkled clothes. We returned it and chose this dryer and are so glad we did. The laundry comes out fluffy and just a little warm. No need to iron most items, such as sheets and tablecloth. T-shirts are folded while slightly warm and are smooth and wrinkle free. The same with jeans. They come out perfect. I hardly use fabric softener anymore. No need with this dryer. 5. The many cycle settings are nice. For the most part I use the towel one and the majority of the laundry, sheets, t-shirts, cottons, I use the "bedding' setting. The normal setting runs a little longer, but I find it is not needed. Love the feature that the level of dryness can be adjusted to keep clothes damp for drip dry needs, such as cottons and other items you don't want to shrink. My rugs will last longer because of the no heat setting. 6. The absolute treasurer is the steam feature, which I thought was just a gimmick and one I would not use much. But oh, how much I have benefited from it already. Here are some samples: 6a. Steam Sanitary: Stuffed animals, all my bed pillows (I do them every four weeks now) and decorative pillows, my throws, my memory foam seat cushions, my comforters, my heating blankets, even my carry-on travel bags - the results are incredible. Everything comes out fluffy, smelling fresh and clean (especially with a dryer sheet). It won't remove tough stains, but minor things have been steamed away. 6b. The "Steam Fresh" feature I used to quickly rid some of my clothes that are not dirty of cooking odors and my dress pants and sweaters to freshen up. Wonderful. 7. The glass door is convenient. The dryer light comes on when the cycle has completed. The chimes are pleasant but hard to hear when you are in another room, maybe the electronic connection to your phone warns. I haven't had the need to try any more cycles that one can download, so we haven't tried that technology yet. Ergonomics: We are in our late 60s. Many of the new appliances have their function keys in the front panel above the door. I assume, so that they can be stacked. We have room for side-by-side and we did not want to have to bent down to be able to see the controls better each time we want to start the dryer. Additionally, the front-control dryers don't have a lip in the back. Meaning, there is the opportunity for things to fall off behind your appliances. We like the back panel controls, they are easy to see, control and manipulate and nothing slides off the back of the unit. This dryer cost a little more up front, but I am convinced it saves on many other purchases in the long-run. Wait for the annual sales, it saves you quite a bit. Got a little incentive from the gas company because it is energy efficient. We have had it for nine month and we are pleased with its performance.
