What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as the washer Bought the dryer along side the matching washer couple of months ago. Really like how the washer has performed thus far, but have been unpleasantly disappointed by the dryer. Many times there are clothes that still feel damp after running a cycle. Wish it performed as good as it looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't ask for a better dryer I've had this dryer for a while now. It is amazing. I had my last dryer for 13 years, and never worked as good as this one does. I'm extremely happy. I especially love the dual door options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the options! I love the options available on this machine. So many settings available for all types of clothing. Excellent temp control. Love the insert that allows flat drying and shelf for shoes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST Dryer EVER After purchasing the 5680 White Dryer/Washer set for my home over a year ago, I purchased the 5780/5680 set in graphite for our summer cabin at the lake. Was this extravagent for just our summer home? Yes, yes, yes since I'm doing bedding every weekend after family and friends leave!! This dryer is beautiful,very efficient AND simply amaaaazing!! It has doubled my load size and drys in half the time of my old large capacity Maytag. The steam/sanitary options works fantastic on my oversized blankets and comforters too. Worth every penny!! You will just love the efficiency of this dryer!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like my LG Washer - but I LOVE this dryer!! The dryer choice has always been: whatever matched the washer...and so it was with my new LG DLEX5780WE dryer. Well, dryers have come a long way baby! This steam technology - who would think, steam in a dryer - is amazing. Clothes come out soft and fluffy and no static cling at all. It doesn't seem like it is as tough on the clothes either, the fabric doesn't feel like it's been roasted in an oven when it comes out. I'm a woman and we don't machine dry the stuff we don't want to shrink, shrivel or turn into a rag, so don't be rash and dry every delicate thing you own in the machine - it's only good for so much. But what it does well is awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't miss my top load dryer! We bought this dryer from HH Gregg in June and absolutely love it! I thought I'd miss my top load dryer, but the easyload door is awesome. I love that you can use the drying rack for items that should lay flat to dry. We've used the steam setting a few times and it works great - no more ironing! Plus the graphite color looks so modern and sleek!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive technology!! I have had this dryer for 2 months now and it is the best one that I have ever owned. The technology is impressive with it's sensor dry and steam capabilities. I am amazed that a dryer can tell just how much time is needed to de-wrinkle my clothing. The steam feature is an added bonus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expect Great Things It's a couple months old but does a good job with handling large loads. Wife loves the easy access tilt door to drop in the laundry. I like how it notifies me that the load is dry. We may have a problem with the start button.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful features Perfect feature with door that can either be opened from the side, or from the top. Really is a great added feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product support I had to reverse the door on our new dryer. I read over the instructions first and then searched YouTube for a video tutorial. I was extremely happy to see a step by step video by LG! It made the process easy and the door works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dryer We bought this dryer from Best Buy about a month ago and do so far we love it. My wife insisted we didn't need the steam feature but she's loving it. It is simple use, dries clothing quickly and works as expected so far. We're loving it and hope it continues to wow us

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG's the best! This dryer is fantastic, tons of features and dries in record time. My only complaint is the door needs to be reversed, and I figure it will take me the better part of 2 hours. At least it's reversible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wrinkles, wrinkles, wrinkles! I both this dryer a month ago and it does not remove wrinkles! I have had a top of the line washer & dryer for over 35 years and I am quite capable of washing clothes appropriately. I absolutely HATE this dryer.
Date published: 2015-10-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer but hate hamper door Make sure when you get it installed to have door switched to swing side door. Hamper door does not open wide enough to barely reach back of dryer to retrieve clothes. Plus wet clothes don't slide in on hamper door, they are wet. This was not user friendly feature and I wish store would have asked which way I wanted door installed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Steam isn't steam! We bought this dryer and tried the Steam Fresh feature. The clothing came out with water spots on it. We watched the cycle through the glass door and water poured out of the part that the steam should come out of. We had the appliance service come out and look at it and he said it should be steam that comes out, not water. We returned the dryer and got another new machine and it does the same thing. Is this what other people are experiencing with their steam dryer? Is it suppose to be water that pours into the drum instead of steam?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wife's happy Honestly, my wife was insistent on having a gray colored set of washer/dryers. As I'm sure the manufacturers have figured out, they can get away with charging a lot more just to get this color (only a few market choices#. Anyway, that's the only negative #price). We've had it installed for about a month now and using it regularly. We haven't quite figured out all the options but it is easy to use and seems to work/dry great. Two-way door is interesting...I like to use the drop-down for loading as you can just throw the clothes "down" and they go right in without having to bend much. Especially since it was the same price as the version with fixed door.

Does the DLEY 1701W have PGM save?  What is that?   Does it have an East Load door?  A Duel Ststem Sensor Dry? Smart Diagnosis?  Remote Start?

Asked by: CLDB
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.3 cu.ft. Ultra Large Capacity High Efficiency Front Control SteamDryer™ with SteamFresh™, Model # DLEY1701W and Model # DLEY1701WE are different models. The DLEY1701WE has the EasyLoad™ Door. Both models have SmartDiagnosis™ and SENSOR DRY cycles that utilize LG’s unique dual sensor system to detect and compare the moisture level in clothes and in the air and adjust the drying time as needed to ensure superior results. The difference being that the DLEY1701W has a Normal and Small LOad cycle whereas the DLEX1701WE only has a Normal cycle. Both have Custom PGM which lets you save any special combination of settings that you use frequently that can be saved as a custom program. You can only save one custom prog at a time. Pressing and Holding the Custom PGM button will overwrite any previously saved custom program. Neither dryer has a remote start function...^IFV
