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 Superb features Dryer is awesome. Very quiet and saves power usage. Has many features for all laundry types to include your very delicates. Can accommodate those big bulky comforters easily. The maintenance to upkeep it is very minimal and real easy. Love this dryer and all that it does. The dryer rack is really great. July 5, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 didn't work right from day one Purchased this on Feb 22, 2014 dryer would not heat up its now March 26, 2014 dryer is still not fixed hopefully will be on April 1, 2014 very disappointed with this product will give a lot of thought to any future LG products!!! March 26, 2014
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 Superb Quality This dryer is great -- lots of features and specifications. Sleek and functional with a large capacity. Clothes come out dry and wrinkle-free! December 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another Amazing product by LG This dryer is the best one i have ever owned. The steam technology is great at getting wrinkles out or gently removing wrinkles. The design is great! December 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pricey but seems worth it (after 1 month) My wife and I bought this washer and dryer after our 18 year old Maytag finally bit the dust. We were concerned about a front loader as many of our friends had purchased them and found they did a so-so job cleaning. That has not been an issue with this washer. It is quiet and effective. My only negative regarding the washers is that they spin incredibly fast and if you don't set the spin speed to medium or below, some types of clothes will likely stretch out. December 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dryer over all I like the dryer very much over all. If I had to do it again, I would buy the bigger washer and dryer. I have a dog that sheds a lot and a queen size comforter with lots of stuffing in it does not get dryer or washed very well. But does a great job drying my clothes and my comforter that is not so fluffy. December 28, 2013

Can I use the home drying systems such as Dryel? Are there any other options for dry cleaning in the machine?

We are venting this unit directly out the back and through the exterior wall. I need exact dimensions (how high, and side to side). Cannot locate in the documents. Thanks.
