Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only LG could sell me an electric dryer! Not a big fan of needing to use and electric dryer however I knew I could trust LG to deliver the best chance at an efficient product. They have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficient and Speedy Love the dryer for its speed and efficiency. I runs quiet and does a really nice job on drying clothes just the way you'd like them to be dried. I love the flat drying rack for sweaters. Very nicely designed and has an array of features for every drying need. I highly recommend this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer This dryer is fantastic if your house is not equipped with a gas line. We had the gas equivalent in my previous house. Much more efficient but that is normal. This electric dryer is a solid second to the gas version. I would definitely spend the cash for this dryer if you don't have a gas hook up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dryer is fast This dryer is fast and clothes come out wrinkle free. I like the features and the look of my washer and dryer. We have had units for a couple of months and so far everything has been great. Washing clothes is no longer a chore. I get my laundry done super fast and don't have as much ironing now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super quiet! Bought as a replacement for a dryer that had always given us we actually know what a properly working dryer is like. It's so super quiet that we don't even know it's on. Love that it actually dries our clothes in the anticipated time. It's our first LG...but it won't be our last!

How do I make the light inside the dryer stay on?

It always goes out before I can get all of the clothes out. Same goes for my washer.
Asked by: Tracy500
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. According to page 2 of the owner’s manual, the DRUM LIGHT is supposed to be a yellow light that remains active while the door is open, and deactivates when the door is closed. If it becomes inactive before the door is closed, there may be a problem with this light, or it may have been active long enough to overheat, and have shut off for safety concerns. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at

do you need water source for steam to work

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
Asked by: purdyenough
No. There is a reservoir that you will have to periodically fill. Be sure to use filtered water to reduce the amount of scale build up from regular water. Do not use distilled water (check with the Owner's Manual first). I would recommend downloading the Owner's Manual as 90% of questions will be answered there.

Is there a setting for a dry down/feather pillow (that has not been put in the washer first)?

Asked by: LexiA
I apologize, but no; there is no setting specifically for use with down/feather pillows. It is recommended to check the fabric care label on the item to see what cleaning/drying method has been suggested by the manufacturer.
