What People Are Saying

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 73 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 Good product but very expensive. This is a good clothes dryer but there should be no reason that any clothes dryer is as expensive as a washer which is much more complex. A dryer is a relatively simple machine and should not be priced the same as the washer. June 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great capacity. Steam fresh leaves clothes damp. I wish drum light would stay on longer for loading/unloading and I wish the ENTIRE control panel would light up to make it easier to read. Have used steam fresh several times and clothes come out freshened but damp. Cycle fills up with steam but then drum stops periodically, then restarts. If it is suppose to help reduce wrinkles, why does drum stop periodically? Going to call tech support, but still moving in new home. Capacity is great. May 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Dryer This is a very large dryer and has helped speed up the laundry process. Great features! Great sensors that let you know when clothes are ready and they actually are is great! May 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet and Efficient We have owned our dryer for almost a month now and it has been fantastic. We love how quiet and efficient it is, and also how it adjusts the drying time based on how damp the clothes are. The steam feature is particularly great for getting wrinkles out or just freshening up an item. March 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the steam dryer. Love the gas version. This is by far the best dryer I have ever owned. I love the capacity. I can put a full comforter and a bunch more items. February 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has all the features you need The dryer will take out stains,because I tried it with a work shirt. March 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Dryer - Superb Performance Love the large capacity, as other users have noted. Relatively quiet dryer, and the steam function works pretty well in keeping clothes from getting wrinkled, thus saving on ironing time. Lots of good features, and overall easy to use. March 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by QUALITY MEETS FUNCTION! DID MY RESEARCH...AND WENT WITH LG. THIS DRYER HAS BEEN WONDERFUL IN PERFORMANCE FOR THE LAST 2 MONTHS. USING IT REGULARLY ALLOWS ME TO REVIEW WITH CONFIDENCE. WELL BUILT AND A HOST OF EASY TO USE OPTIONS MAKE THIS THE PERFECT CHOICE FOR THE LG WASHER. January 29, 2015

Answer: 
The steam dryers do not require a water sourse. You simply fill the steam feeder. If you require more information on how this works please download the manual found on the support page.
