What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dries Fast and Easy My husband and I had to replace the dryer we had because the repair it needed wasnt worth it - it would have been more beneficial to just buy a new one. I did some research after talking with a rep at Home Depot - we ordered this one. I couldnt be happier. The clothes are thoroughly dry in a timely manner and it is super quiet. Great value! I have also used the steam function to get out stubborn wrinkles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very quiet machine. I really like this machine with only one negative. I purchased the bottom vent kit and installed it. The kit worked fine but the price of the kit was way out of line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never dread doing laundry again This dryer is fantastic. The steam feature takes all the wrinkles out of clothes and ironing becomes a thing of the past. I do not believe I have ever seen a dryer with so many drying options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my dryer This is the best dryer I have ever had. Everything is so easy to use and I now realize I was using to much time to dry clothes in my other dryers. This dryer times it for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Dryer Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because the buttons do not light up. LG really dropped the ball here when they only lit part of the console.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer I bought this dryer to help cut down on the dry cleaning bill and it has work. The steam drying works great for wife's clothes and has cut down on the screaming in the morning about the clothes needing to be ironed. Just put in dryer with wrinkles comes out with no wrinkles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the dryer! I could not be happier, love the steam option for those days when I just want to get out the wrinkles and go.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not very well built after waiting almost 6 1/2 weeks for the washer and dryer to is be set up, they go to change the door, so it open right to left, and the sleeve the screw goes into, falls in the machine. After a week or so I get a discount since it has to be opened and the sleeve found. when it was brought for set up, the control panel looked like the machine had be in use for weeks( scratches, and just a lack of newness)

Why do my clothes end up wet and too much water in dryer when steam fresh cycle tried?

Asked by: Leslie101112
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this gas dryer. The clothing is wet because steam is added to the fabrics in order to make heavily wrinkled clothes easier to iron. This information is listed on page 34 of your owner’s manual.

My girlfriend had a dryer with a 1/2 inch fitting for her previous dryer. What size is the fitting for her lg model DLGY1702V, and do I have to get an adapter to fit the new dryer?

Asked by: Lawman 07
We appreciate your interest in this gas dryer. According to the information on page 20 of the owner’s manual, if a rigid pipe is being used, then the pipe should be 1/2” IPS.

Then, will the side venting kit allow this dryer (gas version) to vent to the Left when facing the dryer?

Asked by: JeffInsd
Instructions with regards to the venting of the LG 7.3 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity High Efficiency Front Control SteamDryer™ with SteamFresh™, Model # DLGY1702W are given for when you are facing the unit, so venting to the left can be done. The reason that right side venting (when facing the unit) is not available on Gas Dryers is because the Gas Valves, Igniters, etc. are placed on that side and would interfere with the vent duct...^IFV

Side Venting

Can I vent this dryer to the right side (I am facing the front of the dryer)
Asked by: riverviewray
We appreciate your interest in this gas dryer. Unfortunately, our gas dryers cannot vent to the right (when facing the front of the cabinet). The reason for this is that the Gas Valves, Igniters, etc. are placed in that location and would interfere with the vent duct. Electric dryers will have the venting possibility, but not the gas models.

Asked by: mbkitchen
We appreciate your interest in the LG 7.3 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity High Efficiency Front Control SteamDryer™ with SteamFresh™, Model # DLGY1702W. The recommended installation clearances for this unit will depend on the location in which you are looking to install it, however, for a recessed location or closet installation, the recommended spacing for the rear is 5 inches but you should also consider additional spacing for ease of installation or servicing and for wall, door and floor moldings...^IFV
