What people are saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I bought this with a washer/dyer stackable for a small area. The dryer is a great size but does not measure up for me. My previous dryer was an LG and performed wonderfully. The problem with this one is, lack of options control on the dryer temps. This dryer runs extremely hot. I use it mainly for sheets and towels and am concerned about how much life will be left in them drying at hot temps. I am playing around with the controls and find I can use Manual or Mixed Fabrics to get a lower setting. Another flaw is that the sheets tend to ball up. After about 20 minutes I have to go and separate them no matter how I place them in the dryer. I now dry the towels in one batch and the sheets in the other (they still ball up). On the upside the condenser tube goes directly into the drain eliminating the water reservoir.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wouldn’t know broke after 2 days Would know product was damaged during shipping and LG and Home Depot are working on getting new dryer to us. This was 4 weeks ago and it’s been a hassle and difficult. LG has been great with customer service but between Home Depot and LG serious issues on speed of accepting who should replace and promptness. In the meantime we have no dryer and won’t be getting one Until supposedly end of this week.

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
