What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HEAT FAILURE Dryer is newer. Had venting system professionally cleaned. Stopped heating. Home Warranty Tech checked all systems, replace high limit sensor. Dryer worked for awhile but after multiple loads it stopped heating again. I will not buy another LG product. LG states this is not a “known issue” but Google says otherwise!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Last I've had this dryer for less than 3 years and it died. Unscrewed the back panel to find a wire completely burned and smelling. No storms happening or power issues at the time. Parts and Labor warranty is only 1 year so I'm S.O.L. This is on top of routinely having to re-dry things because the sensor thinks damp = dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it except... Very nice dryer overall but I do get frustrated when it "thinks" my larger items are dry & continues to shut off in the middle of a cycle. However, I do find that if I use the "speed dry" on those items, it'll dry them without stalling.

Have you folks come up with screen vent that fits flush yet? We have had our clothes get torn up on the screen even when we try to adjust it. We have been through 2 screens in the last 4 years when we bought it new. This is getting frustrating.

The Dryer Lint Filter, Part # ADQ56656401 for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLE3170W is the same filter that we have always had for this dryer. The Dryer Lint Filter Cover, Part # MCK49049101 that it fits into may be the issue and you may want to check that it doesn't have any jagged edges that your clothes can catch on that will damage them...^IFV

Which washer would you pair with the DLE317OW dryer?

Can I use this dryer(30amps) on a 50amps receptacle and breaker?

Asked by: Jeremi
Hi Jeremi. The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLE3170W has its own terminal block that must be connected to a separate 240 VAC, 60-Hertz, single-phase circuit fused at 30 amperes. Depending on your local codes and regulations, or in their absence, the latest edition of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, you can use either a UL-Listed 30 A, 240 V, 4-wire or 3-wire #10 AWG-minimum copper conductor power cord through a strain relief. There are two issues that you will encounter with attempting to use this in a 50 Amp receptacle. The first issue is that the 4-wire and 3-wire receptacles do not have the same NEMA Configuration and neither does the 50 Amp receptacle so the plugs on the power cords will not fit into a 50 Amp receptacle. The second is that plugging a 30 amp unit into a 50 amp circuit creates a potential fire hazard because the the dryer could overload and a 50 amp breaker won't allow for it to trip properly.With that said, ALWAYS maintain 30 amps throughout the circuit, including your receptacle/plug, wire and breaker...^IFV

is there a diagram showing the location of the vent outlet on the dryer with dimensions?

Asked by: Willmort
Regrettably, the only diagrams that show the Exhaust Duct Outlet for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLE3150W is the diagram on page 9 of its owner's manual, but it does not show any dimensions. The diagram on page on page 12 (no dimensions), and the diagram on page 18 that shows how to remove the rear exhaust duct retaining screw to install the side vent kit. You can also get a better view of the exhaust duct outlet by using the navigation arrow on the left of the unit's main image on its product information page to scroll to the second image from the main image that shows the rear of the unit while it is sitting on a pedestal. Regrettably, none of these have dimensions, but it may help to know that you can only use 4-inch (10.2 cm) rigid or flexible metal ductwork inside the dryer cabinet for venting outside and that the exhaust duct must also be 4-inch (10.2 cm) rigid or flexible metal ductwork...^IFV

What are the maximum temperatures for the different heat settings? In other words, how hot does the dryer get when it's set on high, medium and low? Neither the spec sheet nor the manual list the temperatures for the various het settings.

Asked by: JCS124
The temperature inside the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLE3170W will range from about 125°F to approximately 135°F. Low heat will average around the 120-125°F range, while medium heat will average in the 130-140°F range and high heat approximately 140-155°F. However, the size of the load being dried, the amount of moisture in your clothing and the evaporation of water from your clothing can affect the temperature or reduce the internal temperature. Lint accumulation can block the flow of air which in turn can affect the temperature. As a reference, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission states that an adult can suffer third-degree burns after five minutes if his skin is exposed to hot tap water at 120°F. For safety reasons, in most current dryers, the internal temperature has been reduced to a range of 125°F to 135°F across the cycles to make sure that the dryer cannot cause harm as you are interrupting a cycle or unloading clothes after drying is complete...^IFV

My house is 110 v, and how is this 24v product?...

Asked by: zest00
You may want to contact an electrician for a more detailed explanation on this, but most US/North American homes have split phase where the power coming into the home is 240V with a center tap which gives 120 V from the center tap (called Neutral) to either leg of the 240V. The two legs are out of phase by 180 when referenced to neutral. When the two legs are utilized, between them they develop the full 240V that came into the house. That’s how higher power appliances like the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLE3170W, Electric Range Ovens, and Electric Dryers work...^IFV
