Can this dryer run ventless as long as you never use the "quick/hot" settings? I assume if it's running on "eco" mode only it presumable could exhaust into the house just like any other ventless dryer?

Asked by: scavonejoe
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with EcoHybrid™ Technology, Model # DLHX4072W uses a combination of conventional heating elements and a heat pump system to dry your clothes. The heat pump recovers heat from the hot, moist air that is normally exhausted to the outside and lost. Using a heat pump to preheat the air coming into the dryer recovers this heat and saves electricity, because it takes less electricity to move the heat than to create it with a conventional heater. It is a Gas Dryer and the International Residential Code that most home inspectors in the U.S. use when citing regulations pertaining to dryer venting (section M1502 of the IRC) require that Gas Dryers be vented and that your dryer vent must terminate outside the building. The codes in your state may have additional provisions, but the dryer has to be vented to the outside...^IFV

We own a Sensor Dry DLE2301R dryer for 6 yrs now. Six weeks ago it would not work and the repair person installed a new computer panel   Now it won't turn on again and the repair person came over and stated that the panel has no warranty?  Contact LG

Asked by: Wilma maldonado
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dryer. Parts purchased from LG’s parts department, and installed by an Authorized LG Service Technician, carry a 90-day part warranty for any failures caused by the manufacturing of the part itself. However, if the tech obtained the part from a 3rd party distributor, LG will have no control over the available warranty.

Is the Height and Depth of this product switched? Are the washer and dryer 30 inches Tall/High ? ?

I have a spot for a new washer dryer that is 60 wide (left to right) 40 deep (front to back) and 38 1/2 tall (bottom to top). I really like the LG but I didn't think it fit when I measured it in the store. However this model fits based on measurements you give. But I think you have the height and depth confused. What are the correct measurements? These are the dimensions on your web page: Product: 27" x 30" x 39" (51" D with door open) Carton: 29 1/2" x 31" x 43" Weight: 167.5 lbs/171.3 lbs
Asked by: PamelaR
Luckily I read the answer from Burk and checked the installation instructions. I did have to cancel the pedestal and side kick order because they would be too tall to fit my space using the correct 39" height. Glad I didn't have to wait until delivery to find that out. Even the owner's manual has the height and depth switched but the installation instructions show the height needed to stack them or place in a cabinet which confirmed that they had the dimensions switched. I think LG Joel must have just read the manual rather than get out a tape measure. Since this is new and quite expensive they aren't going to sell many if they don't figure out why their posted washer and dryer dimensions would never match up or fit the pedestal or side kick.

Is there a reset sequence. We moved the washer and dryer to the new addition and now there is no heat.

Asked by: housekeeper
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dryer. It is recommended to check the circuit breaker associated with this outlet, and ensure that the power cord is secure on the dryer. It may also be considered to check the wiring of this new addition, or to check the dryer in its original location. If this does not resolve the matter, then it may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at

Are the doors switchable on either the washer or dryer so you can open from left to right or right to left?

Asked by: mileskr
The door on the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with EcoHybrid™ Technology, Model # DLHX4072V is reversible. This unit can stacked on most 27" washers but not all of them have reversible doors. Since there isn't a specific washer that is designated as the match to this dryer, if there is a washer that interests you that you would like to find out if it has a reversible door, we would be more than happy to provide you with that information...^IFV
