What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dryer does it all A dryer for everyone...dries and finishes off as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy Washer went broked down in April and we decided to get a new W/D. Did a lot of research comparing products. Decided on this dryer as its a good match to the LG high efficiency washer. Dryer does a great job. We used to have electrice but switched to gas. Performance is great with gas. The steam fresh is wonderful. Lots of cycle options and very easy to use. The dryer tub is huge and much bigger than our prior washer. We would recommend to anyone needing a new dryer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ruin our clothes Very poor quality. It leaks the conditioner and stains the clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad we chose LG This is a vast improvement over our prior dryer. It is much quieter and dries more quickly. Huge capacity. Able to wash quilts and mattress pads with ease. Nice end of cycle notifications instead of jarring beeps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love My Dryer! This is a great dryer! It offers many drying cycle alternatives and a huge tub to dry a large load. Our laundry comes out clean and soft and fluffy. This dryer takes no more time than the old ones, once you learn the correct settings! Our installer loves the product and cautioned us against using dryer sheets. We use liquid fabric softener in the washer, instead. Perfect results!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Dryer Great Dryer but takes a little getting used to. One day in the near future a dryer will be invented that can determine what type of clothes are in it and dry accordingly. Until then this dryer does the job. You must learn several options, but once learned, this dryer is the best so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer We purchased the matching washer and dryer and love it. Towels dry in less than 40 minutes, without have to rerun for 10 additional minutes, and clothes are less wrinkled. Love the melody it plays when the cycle is completed versus a "buz" sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dries Fast This replaced my front loaders & I have been extremely happy with it. It dries my clothing, towels, bedding in record time.

Why is it that any other dry level selected, other than "very dry," results in the load coming out damp? I've had a technician come out to separate times, and he says that LG tell him this is normal.

Asked by: Grayguy1
We regret your dissatisfaction with this gas dryer. It is not uncommon for some moisture to remain in the garments when the cycle ends. This is to allow each in ironing of the fabrics, and/or to help alleviate the need of ironing by reducing wrinkles in the fabrics. This is partly caused by the Cotton/Normal cycle defaulting to Energy Saver Mode. These are some points to check. For additional troubleshooting, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

How do you shut off the child lock indicator

Asked by: Saleen
We appreciate your interest in this gas dryer. According to the information on page 40 of the owner’s manual, the CHILD LOCK feature can be deactivated by holding the DAMP DRY SIGNAL button for 3 seconds, until the indicator light extinguishes.

Is the finish on this DLGY1702VE dryer a stainless steel or is it a painted finish that will not show finger marks?
