Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Dryer We bought the Dryer as we already own a matching washer . The dryer works wonderful. I love the lint catcher being just inside the door. It helps to remind us to clean the trap every time we take out a load of clothes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I LOVE LG appliances I love everything about this dryer except the lint filter configuration. The compartment where the lint filter is located is too narrow to put your hand down and remove lint that comes off the screen into the compartment. I clear the lint filter after every load....but sometimes some of the lint falls into the compartment and because the opening is so narrow it is difficult to remove.......the vacuum cleaner hose/crevice tool is too large to fit into the space and I have an attatchment that I use to clean small spaces (a narrow tube that fits onto the hose) and it clogs immediately with the first bit of lint that it picks up.....also there is a very fine coating of lint in the compartment and because of the small space cannot be wiped out. When I see a "chunk" of lint in the bottom of the compartment....I literally must "fish it out" with a brush intended to clean the straws for sport drinking bottles.....because of the ridges in the compartment the lint cannot simply be pushed up the side of the compartment to be removed. Any suggestions on keeping it clean would be greatly appreciated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice machine Bought this product a few weeks ago so have only used it twice. The automatic drying settings don't seem to do the trick so far. Some items are still damp when dryer has shut off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What a loud machine This is my second LG Front Loader and I am disappointed. This is a very loud machine that vibrates almost continually. I have to load the clothes carefully and adjust 3 out of 4 loads. Definitely not a time saver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like it. I have used my dryer for two months now and am very happy with it. I even love the chime that sounds when the cycle is finished (which can be turned off if you like). There are lots of adjustable features and it is pretty quiet. The only tiny thing that is aggravating is that when you open the door to remove the dry clothes the door does not clear the laundry basket (standard size) you would put under the opening. I know this is a very small thing but obviously whoever designed the machine doesn't do their own laundry. It irritates me because with every dryer I have ever owned (I'm 66 years old) you could put the basket in front of the door and just open it. I live in a very small apartment so I have to put the basket in the hallway to open the dryer door.

We stacked this dryer/washer. Now we are trying to get cabinets installed. This unit is in a small laundry room with a window. What is the minimum required clearance from top of dryer to top of upper cabinet? It will be semi enclosed on both sides of W/D

Asked by: Romysd96
Hello, you will need a minimum of 9" clearance on the top, 5 ½" in the back and 1" on each side. ^AC

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

What type of outlet does this dryer need? 

Asked by: Nikkireeg
