A revolutionary spin on laundry.

LG puts a modern design spin on the traditional top load laundry pair. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

What People Are Saying

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 496 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Dryer Really like the dryer, it has excellent features and clothes come out wrinkle-free. Only thing I would change is to have a volume control as our dryer is in another room so when it goes off we don't usually hear it. August 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid performance This machine has operated effectively since the day it was first used. Its features enable adjusting settings to match the size and sort of load. Its large capacity permits loads of many sizes. It has been easy to use and still makes washing clothes almost enjoyable. August 23, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by poor signal The signal isn't loud enough. Also, and very importantly to me, the signal doesn't work when using the wrinkle care feature. It eventually will work when the entire cycle is over, but that's three hours. Other dryers give the signal and then begins the wrinkle care if I can't get to the clothes in time. August 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Fast dry times I have had this dryer for over 1 month and I love it. Dry times are fast and the amount of clothes that can be loaded is very large. I would recommend this dryer to any one! August 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I wanted LG has done a great job in creating this dryer, the capacity is great. The only concern I have is when drying high lint items (towels) the filter becomes overloaded. I would feel more comfortable if the vent was larger. I love all the different settings. August 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product Purchased the washer/dryer set and find them to be very reliable. Looking forward to long and useful service. August 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is really what i wanted. My LG washer and dryer both really have great features, and it is really big and wide i like all the cycles you can use especially the special cycles. Its the first time I have had an LG appliance, I also have an LG tablet that I like and everything was really easy to learn. So far so good. August 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This dryer has AWESOME features ! LOVE IT! Our new dryer is GREAT!! I have never owned such a nice one!! I LOVE doing laundry and this machine has it ALL!! THANK-YOU LG!! August 10, 2015

Answer: 
You can open it to the right or switch it and open it to the left...depending which side your washer is on to make it easier to transfer clothes. It doesn't not fold down..just left or right.

Answer: 
I purchased this dryer 6 weeks ago and I also tried to open it by pulling it down the first couple of times. It is a little deceiving but mine does open to the right and if you want to you can reverse it to open to the left. It really is a great dryer!

Answer: 
Yes, it does open to the side... and reversible means that you can change the hinges - so if needed, the door can open to the other side :)

Answer: 
The Sales Representative was correct. We do not recommend the use of dryer sheets in our washing machines as the fibers being pulled off the sheets can form a layer on the moisture sensors and not allow proper operation of the unit. If fabric softener is needed, we recommend using a liquid fabric softener in the appropriate compartment in the LG washing machine.

I need to see installation diagrams for dryer DLE1101W, especially for side and bottom alternatives for vent. There is no information on your website and the manual and instructions are not listed in the "manuals" section. I would also like to know recommended clearances for space between washer + dryer. Thank you for your help.

Answer: 
I used a periscope style vent from the dryer's center bottom outlet to my house vent line off to the end of the dryer. It required about 2.5 inches of space to the rear of the dryer. Air flow is very good with this arrangement.

On the washer side of the dryer I have a half inch of clearance between them - no problems.

Answer: 
I have very little space between washer and dryer. They seem very solid and don't move at all when in operation, It appears that there is an area for a side vent, but I use the back vent. Do not see anything for a bottom vent.

I'm not satisfied with the answer given to an earlier post regarding a pedestal for the DLE1101W.

LG states in the manual that if the dryer is installed in a garage, it should be placed on a pedestal 18" off the floor. Why would LG state that and not provide access to a pedestal?

While not 18", the WDP4W would appear to be the correct dimensions to fit the DLE1101W dryer.

Will the WDP4W work with this dryer? If not, what is the correct pedestal?

I forgot to add that the security clips that are supposed to be mounted to the bottom of the dryer and then screwed into pedestal mounts for added security have no mounting points on the underside of the DLE1101W.

Answer: 
Hello BC93LG. Our apologies if the previous answer was not satisfactorily answered for you. In response to your inquiry as to whether or not the WDP4W pedestal will work with the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Sleek Contemporary Design (Electric), Model # DLE1101W, the answer is yes, it will work. Just to clarify what LG meant by "For a garage installation, you will need to place the dryer at least 18 inches (46 cm) above the floor. If using a pedestal, you will need 18 inches (46 cm) to the bottom of the dryer.", it's not that you don't have access to a pedestal. If you are going to use the WDP4W pedestal which is 13 3/5" in height, you will need to get a platform under the WDP4W that raises the pedestal to a height that is 18 inches to the bottom of the dryer. In other words, you need to put the pedestal on a platform that is 4 2/5" in height...^IFV
