What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LG front load dryer Have to dry clothes three times due to sensor thinking they are dry but they are still wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Dryer Ever Stumbled on the most amazing deal and am loving it! The programming allows for such great variety and has saved countless minutes on drying. Still need to learn all it does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It I bought this product a few weeks ago and love it because it is high tech which makes it more easier for me and my family. My son who has mental illness is able to operate the dryer for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flow sense default We bought the LG Sensor Dry dryer from Costco and while the clothes are being dried the "Flow Sense" sensor light keeps blinking and stops the drying process. We've only had this dryer for about two weeks and spent a grand on it and it's such a disappointment since we have to stand next to the dryer every time just the clothes will dry. I have better things to do with my time than be glued to this LG dryer!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dryer Tried to use the steam function and the clothing came out soaking wet. Dryer is supposed to sense when clothes are dry but I have to keep restarting to get it dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dream Dryer I bought this to match my washer and for the steam feature. It dries quickly and love that the door opens 2 ways it makes loading easy, love the dry rack and steam feature haven't had any issues since I bought it. you must keep the lint cleaned out.But I don't have any problem with that. Would highly recommend it to anyone . It's really quiet also. Does everything I expected and more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I want my old washer back! I have had this washer for a year now and I absolutely hate it. I don't see how they think that these new machines get things clean. I have had to rewash the same load multiple times to try and get it clean. The spin cycle just winds it all up and you get all the dirt and lint stuck in all the creases. I've wanted to soak some items and how can you soak it when it's not immersed in the water, only 1/2 of it? If you try and stop it while it's full to sit it just empties on you. I am short and also have a hard time getting items out of it and now can't reach the cabinets above since they are higher and stick out farther. We are planning to move and I plan on leaving this washer and dryer with the house and find an old style machine!

After my clothes is dried I take them out and come back and the dryer has water condensation standing in it   I have not put any water in the steamer 

Asked by: Klovensc
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this television. How much water is being found in the dryer drum? It is recommended to check the lint filter and the exhaust duct for any obstructions that might allow the moisture to run back into the machine. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to troubleshoot this matter.

Model: DLEX5780WE does it require a hose for steam to work?

The guys that installed it saw there was room to put water in it manually so they didn't attach a hose for the steam part. Just checking that this is ok?
Asked by: JROG
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. There is no water line or hose by which a water supply might be connected. The Steam Feeder must be filled manually each this this function is to be used. This information is listed on page 39 of your owner’s manual.

DYER DLEX5780WE CAN BE VENTED BOTTOM CENTER

Asked by: pear

Is the depth of the electric version (DLEX5780*E) less than the depth of the gas version (DLGX5781*E)?

An installer told me that the depth of the electric version (DLEX5780*E) is less than the depth of the gas version (DLGX5781*E). The two models share an owner's manual, which provides measurements in its Installation section, but does not make a distinction between the two models.

Can this be used as a true hamper door which lays flat so I can fold clothes on it?
