What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this about 3 weeks ago and I can't believe I didn't buy it sooner...I'm in a condo with no actual venting system for a dryer so I had to go ventless...This dryer is pretty quiet, easy to use and for an electric dryer, drys my items pretty quick!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dryer It is ventless. And it puts out a lot of heat. Not what I was looking for.

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.

Can you add a lint trap to this unit

Asked by: Bobby o
Hi Bobby o. The LG 4.2 cu.ft. Compact Electric Condensing Front Load Dryer, Model # DLEC888W already has a lint filter in it. It has a 'Clean Lint Filter' light that comes on during a cycle and a beeper will sound to alert you to pause the dryer and empty the filter immediately. You can use your fingers to roll the lint off the screen surfaces, but if the lint is difficult to remove or the filter material is showing signs of clogging, you can wash the lint screen in warm, soapy, water and dry it thoroughly before replacing it...^IFV

Does this dryer have a tank that collects excess moisture (that can be dumped by hand) or just a drain hose?

Asked by: Katharine
Hi Katharine. If the LG 4.2 cu.ft. Compact Electric Condensing Front Load Dryer, Model # DLEC888W is not connected to a household drain, then the water reservoir in the unit will capture the water from the drying process. The reservoir will need to be emptied after every load. If the reservoir becomes full during a cycle, the 'Empty Water' light and alarm is activated to alert you and the reservoir will need to be emptied immediately...^IFV
