Late for the party and no time to iron your favorite outfit? The SteamFresh™ Cycle refreshes, and reduces wrinkles in up to five garments at a time with one 20-minute dryer cycle.

What’s worse than pulling clothes out of the dryer and finding they’re still damp? Our Sensor Dry system measures the moisture levels during the cycle and automatically adjusts the drying time, to help ensure you get dry laundry every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by One and done! I always believe when you do anything - always do it right the first time!. I was in the market for a new electric dryer. I looked through Samsung's, GE's & even Whirlpools. After assesing everything I finally went with this LG. It runs amazing efficient - dried my clothes to the point where I wouldn't need to iron them and maintains the fabric on the clothes as if I purchased them new. Overall a great dryer which is great for big and small loads. Highly recommended!!! February 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Dryer I bought this dyer along with the matching washer. These machines look great and are easy to use. The dryer is quite and dries fast. I like the controls and an overall top notch machine. Even my 5 kids like using both the washer and dryer which is a huge plus. The cost of these machines were a little more than I wanted to spend but worth every cent. You won't be disappointed. March 30, 2014

I'm in the market for a new front-load washer & dryer, and have decided to go with either the DLEX3470V dryer & WM3470HVA washer, or the DLEX4070V dryer & WM4070HVA washer. I see the WM4070HVA washer is 4.3 cu ft instead of 4.0 cu ft & the door windows are shaped rectangular instead of round, but otherwise I haven't found a lot of differences - maybe a few more washer program options. Can you shed some light on what was changed in the redesign for the dryer and/or washer, so I can decide whether it's worth the difference in price?

Answer: 
Yes, you are right, besides those few differences these units are very similar. The larger capacities are the major features of the new models.

I want to purchase your top of the line washing and electric dryer machines that are stackable. I would like a front load washing machine. I would like extra large capacity and I want the steam fresh cycle. I would prefer side venting. Do you offer this feature? Please recommend the best washing machine model that would go well with the dryer you recommend. I liked the features of the WM3070HRA, Are any of these models available in stainless steel?

Do you need a seperate water source to the dryer for the steam feature to work? Or does it use the wetness of the clothes to make it produce the steam. If a water source is needed do I have to use the steam option. I wish I could find a dryer like this with out the steam dry option. Thank you
