Do you sell a compact dryer 24" that you can vent?

Asked by: JPHP
Regrettably, the LG 4.2 cu.ft. Compact Electric Condensing Front Load Dryer, Model # DLEC888W is the only 24" dryer in our current lineup and we do not have any 24" dryers that can be vented...^IFV

Is this unit compatible with the discontinued wm1377hw washer that I have?

Does LG make a pedestal or something to raise height for this unit? My home had very minimal space for a dryer so I had to go with this (not a stack) and it’s just so low to the ground. If not, any advice or options?

Asked by: Robbie931
At this time, we do not have a pedestal that is compatible with the DLEC888W. ^CP

Where does the condensing drain hose in the dryer go?

Asked by: Tavito
Condensed water is pumped to the reservoir which must be emptied every load. If a household drain is available, this water can be pumped down the drain so the reservoir is not used. Information about this can be found in the owner's manual on page 24 https://www.lg.com/us/support/product/lg-DLEC888W.ABWEEUS ^CP

Does LG build a ventless dryer that operates off 110/120 ?

Asked by: mickey2019
Regrettably, we do not manufacture any Compact Electric Condensing Front Load Dryers that operate on 110/120V. All our Electric Dryers require 240V and only our Gas Dryers operate on 110/120V but we do not make any Compact Gas Condensing Front Load Dryers...^IFV

Could you please tell me what power cord and vent I need for this product and where to buy? Thank you 

Asked by: CindyMarie
The power cord for the LG 4.2 cu.ft. Compact Electric Condensing Front Load Dryer, Model # DLEC888W should be a three or four-wire UL listed No.-10 AWG copper wire electrical cord rated at 240V, 30 Amps and labeled as suitable for use in clothes dryers. You will need to consult your local building inspector or your local building codes to determine if you need a 3-wire or a 4-wire cord. A 4-wire connection is required for all mobile and manufactured home installations, as well as all new construction after January 1, 1996 or where local codes prohibit grounding through the neutral terminal. This dryer uses a Condensing Drying System and is ventless...^IFV

Dryer kept running past its cycle whole night. Pause and start button didnt work. Opening the door stopped it. Again if we close the door it starts spinning the tub.
