Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Love This Dryer! MY fiance and I bought this dryer less than a month ago and we absolutely love it! We are first time home buyers and first time dryer buyers and we can't say enough about how much we love it! IT drys our clothes, blankets, comforters and towels quickly without shrinking (: WE love the quick dry feature and the different choices we have for different dry times and different heat options!!

What is the antibacterial button for and how do you use it?

Asked by: Sylviahc16
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. The Antibacterial Cycle is designed to use the highest heat level for a longer period of time, in order to ensure the clothes are very dry and that no bacteria can live. Do NOT use this feature on delicate fabrics. This uses a HIGH temperature for about 70 minutes (15+ minutes longer than all other cycles).

My dryer will not stop running unless the door is open

Asked by: Michelle Bush
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. Check to see if the WRINKLE CARE function has been activated. Selecting this option will allow the drum to continue tumbling the load periodically for up to 3 hours after the end of the selected cycle, or until the door is opened. If this is the case, then it will be normal operation. If this is not the situation, then the unit 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 http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.
