What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has all the features you need The dryer will take out stains,because I tried it with a work shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Dryer I have ever owned Quiet, can dry LARGE loads. Drying King Size sheet sets with blankets is NOT a problem. This dryer is everything the sales person said it would be and more. The Cotton setting is a clothers saver. If an artical of clothing was accidently placed in the dryer that was 100% cotton you just had to throw it away it shrunk so much. With the LG Cotton setting the shrinkage is minimal.

Is the interior light suppose to come on when the smart diagnosis button is pressed on the LG 9.0 gas dryer??

Is the interior light suppose to come on when the smart diagnosis button is pressed on the LG 9.0 gas dryer?? I noticed that it does light up on the 5.2 washing machine but not the 9.0 dryer. Was wondering if this is an issue. Thanks.
Asked by: Steve065
We appreciate your interest in this gas dryer. According to our information, this unit is designed to only activate the light when the door is open. This would be normal operation.

Can you provide more details on the 18 inch clearance requirement for garage installation?

I bought a unit without the pedestal since it was marked as optional. However after getting the base unit installed in garage noted the requirement for 18 inch clearance in the manual (Page 5). Does the base unit automatically provides the needed clearance Or is it a must for me to buy the pedestal? Thanks, sankar
Asked by: sankarr
We appreciate your interest in the proper installation of this dryer. It appears that the purpose behind the 18” clearance, beneath the dryer, for a garage installation is related to the unfinished and uninsulated nature of a garage and its flooring. The colder temperature of the garage floor can affect the drying performance of this device.

Is my true steam broken?

The water in my true steam container is not disappearing after I have used the steam drying setting. In fact, it says to add more tap water even though it is filled to the maximum as indicated prior to starting the dryer. What is wrong with my true steam? Do I need a service repair or can I fix it myself?
Asked by: ddsmile
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dryer and its features. How much water is remaining after the STEAM cycle? What is the source of the water? Is distilled water being used? Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for assistance with this matter.

How do I turn off the Child Lock

The Check Filter light is on and it also says CL
Asked by: Tali
Once set, the CHILD LOCK feature remains active until it is manually deactivated. The CHILD LOCK must be turned off in order to run another cycle. To deactivate the CHILD LOCK feature, press and hold the EASY IRON button for 3 seconds. This information is located on page 36 of your owner’s manual.

Why is there no accessory available to empty the lint container?

Instructions clearly indicate to empty after each use & this means the layer of lint is thin. The lint container on this dryer is deep & therefore impossible for me to completely clean, without the help of some kind of handheld device. I found a cylinder brush under my kitchen sink, which did help somewhat. But I can tell you this will eventually damage the screen of the container.
Asked by: Therose
We appreciate your interest in this lint filter screen. It is recommended to simply extract the lint by rolling it out of the screen with a finger. If this does not extract all the lint, then a vacuum cleaner can also be used to remove lint from the screen.
