Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Machine I love my machine and it turns out my parents have fallen in love with it too. They have had to borrow using it when their machine breaks down and now they want one. Simple and easy to use. Has a large capacity and handles comforters well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Dryer Best dryer I ever owned. Everything is dry everytime. Never have to run it thru another cycle. On the rare occasion that more time is needed the auto senser adds as needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dryer Great for first two years We have had our LG dryer for a little over two years. We are now in the midst of our second repair in the matter of a month for the same reason. I am not sure if it is a quality issue in the manufacturing but we have become very unhappy with this product and will not be buying an LG washer or dryer when we move to our new home.

My dryer stopped working reads vent needs  Vent filter checked? Checked everything visible?

Asked by: Donkey
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. If the exhaust filter appears to be clear, then it would be recommended to check the exhaust duct behind the dryer. This may need cleaning as well. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional assistance.

DLE4970w. 18 months old. Dryer timer will not hold minutes - jumps from 30 to 8 to 3 within 60 seconds from start. holds and runs last 3 minutes. Sensor or control board?

Asked by: bru74
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. It is possible that the humidity sensors are finding the clothing to be dry. If this is not the case, then the dryer 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.

Does it work also with 50 Hz. I want to take it to South America, where networks is 220 v/50 hz, instead of 60 Hz.

Asked by: Tincho65
I apologize, but no; this dryer has not been designed to operate normally in other countries. Using too high of an electrical current can cause damage to the operation of the machine.
