What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dryer destroys my clothes The lint filter will not seat properly and clothes catches on it. Clothes come out twisted and with holes in the fabric. I have cleaned the lint buildup where filter seats, but this only works temporarily or not at all. I have even carved off the sharp corner of the filter with a pocket knife. helped, but did not solve the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this large capacity dryer! We bought this large capacity dryer 3 years ago and I just love it. It has many settings for anything you would want to dry. There is a sensor that stops the dryer when the items are finished drying or you can select the amount of time that you want the dryer to run. I have put king size comforters in this dryer with no problems. I love the stacking feature which give me more room in my laundry room to hang things up. I would highly recommend this dryer to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All of the Features I Wanted for a Fair Price I chose this model based upon the glowing LG brand reliability and the features on the DLE3170W that I didn't see in other makes or models. The number of drying options is almost overwhelming, but this gives me confidence that I'll always get what I wanted from the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love our new 75" LG Smart TV! We recently purchased the 75" LG Smart TV and love it! All of our appliances are LG, even my cell phone. We can't believe how clear the picture is. We love to watch The Discovery Channel and when they show something outdoors, it's like we are really there. We would recomment this tv to everyone!

What is the most efficient way to clean the dryer or to rid of any debris such as left over dog hair, dirt and other small particles? Is there a cycle? 

Asked by: CMendez
The 'Maintenance' section on page 35 in your owner's manual for the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Sensor Dry (Electric), Model # DLE3050W give explicit instructions of how to clean the lint filter which is responsible for catching foreign objects that are a by product of the drying.

Can our use of dryer sheets in this dryer be causing a faulty "Flow Sense" error to shut the dryer off prematurely? I didn't know we weren't supposed to be using dryer sheets until I looked at this page. 

Asked by: Angela81
It is as stated in your owner's manual for the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Sensor Dry (Electric). Sensor dry cycles in this dryer utilize LG’s unique dual sensor system to detect and compare the moisture level in clothes and in the air and adjust the drying time as needed to ensure superior results. The dryer automatically sets the dryness level and temperature at the recommended setting for each cycle and the estimated time remaining will be shown in the display. The "Flow Sense" is something entirely different. The Flow Sense™ function featured in your dryer is an innovative sensing system that automatically detects blockages and restrictions in dryer ductwork. Keeping ductwork clean of lint buildup and free of restrictions allows clothes to dry faster and reduces energy use. If you are getting the "Flow Sense" error, don't use the dryer until you get the ductwork cleaned out cause it could lead to a fire or the dryer burning itself out...^IFV

My dryer is off but continues to run. I've removed the laundry, and now if I shut the door is still runs/rotates. Why

Asked by: Hjackson
We regret to read that your LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Sensor Dry (Electric), Model # DLE3050W continues to run even when off. There are a few parts in your dryer that can cause it to continue to run even when off. It could be your door switch which is a safety feature that is an on and off type switch that prevents the dryer drum from turning when the door is opened. If the dryer continues to tumble after the door is open the problem is most likely the door switch. It could be the timer, the cool down thermostat or the cycling thermostat. In short, the dryer will need to be inspected to determine which part is malfunctioning. If you would like to schedule a repair service, you can either submit an online repair service request form at https://www.lg.com/us/support/repair-service/schedule-repair, or you can call us at (800) 243-0000 to speak to a Call Representative and get assistance in scheduling a repair service...^IFV
