What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Product & Customer Service I bought this dryer in February 2020, failed and was replaced in June 2020. Started having problems again in April 2021 and continues to have problems through September without resolution. Have escalated twice to "Executive" team, have had service out 3-4 times and could not duplicate, yet I get continued reports of problems from our renters / management company. I cannot get a phone call from the "Executive" team with any explanation why my request for a replacement or refund is rejected. I have spent upwards of 20+ hours on the phone. Do not waste your time on LG

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor repair service and warranty service Six weeks ago I reported our LG dryer no longer worked. After ten days A&E Service came out and said the motor needed to be replaced and ordered a new one. No response since then from A&E. I contacted LG ten days ago and they said they needed to confirm a part was ordered and it had to have been on order for at least 10-days for us to be eligible for a replacement or our money back. I have not heard anything since then. This LG dryer is within the one year warranty until the middle of Sept 2021. I really need a dryer that works now, and if the part isn’t available for the foreseeable future, then I need to be reimbursed so I can buy a new one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doors Once we finally got it installed properly, I love the dryer. I do have one complaint. The unit is sold to be stacked on the matching washer. The washer opens right to left, and the dryer opens left to right - this makes it difficult to remove the clothes from the washer to put in the dryer. This design flaw gives you only about 1' of clearance to do this task. I'm not a large woman, but I am elderly, and this is really inconvenient. Therefor, because of this design flaw, I would not recommend these particular units to others unless this is remedied.

How do you use the wrinkle care feature?

Asked by: Jaxwill
Wrinkle care is part of your 10 dryer options. When choosing clothing to put into this setting, be sure to read the label on the clothing. This cycle using stream to help wrinkle care. Turn the dial to wrinkle care and press the play button. Side note, remember to fill the left cart ( slides forward from front panel under sensor dry) with water before using this dry option. Hope this helps! ^CJ

We bought the Dlec888w for a 96 year old and the dryer is leaking. Is it true that you must drain a water pan every time you use it. The repairman just came and said Lowes employees installed dryer wrong but please tell me that you don’t have to drain it.

Asked by: Jliss
OIf 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 will capture the water from the drying process. This should be emptied every load. Failure to do so may result in poor drying performance. If the container becomes full during a cycle, the empty Water light and alarm will be activated. In this case, the water reservoir should be emptied immediately, but in no case should it continue to be used for more than 1 hour...^IFV

Compact Dryer Model #DLEC888W is not available from your website and Home Depot, Best Buy and Lowes are also out of stock. Do you know when it will become available?

Asked by: I need a new washer
You would have to ask the retailer when they expect to have more inventory on it since stock availability and information for inventory is proprietary information.

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?

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
