What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love controls in the front! Love the controls in the front! This dryer has loads of drying options and a huge capacity. I love being able to dry down comforters with room to spare. Two things drive me crazy about it. One is that if the dryer is even 'normally' full, when the door is opened, the clothes spill out. I wish the dryer had a taller lip on the inside drum to keep the clothes contained. I also wish the top wasn't sloped. Leaving a freshly folded stack of clothers on the dryer is a bad idea. I miss using this area as a transit spot for family members to pick up their clothes and put them away. Other than those 2 things, I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dryer ever! I love this dryer. So many options and settings. De-wrinkles with steamfresh or other wrinkle settings. Dries fast so uses less energy than other standard dryers. Senses wetness so even if you put it on heavy duty, it stops drying when it senses no moisture. Nice! It's pretty too. My only concern was the top getting scratched so I put a cover on top to keep it nice. It's slanted too so putting stuff on top really isn't a good idea anyway but I have nearly grown sons who don't care what they do to your stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still getting to know it. We needed a new dryer, and at Sears Outlet they had a Floor model at half price with twice the features as the one we went to see, which was built for Sears Kenmore by LG. Others we know have enjoyed their LG products, and we hope to have many happy years with the new dryer as we learn about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer This dryer works great. It has a large capacity and does a great job of drying the clothes. It has all the featues you would want on a dryer. The only thing that is a bit of a problem is the seal around the lint filter collects a little lint and it is not easily removed. But it is a minor inconvience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer! The dryer is easy to use and it is such a great change to be able to dry clothes on appropriate time settings. The size is great and I like that it looks good as an appliance in my utility room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it There isn't anything I don't like about this washer! It performs just the way I want it to, I'm so glad I purchased this washer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Dryer I ordered this dryer from Lowes and waited 2 months. It never came. I cancelled that order and received one from Home Depot. It was delivered in 2 days. The clothes come out fluffy and takes less time than my 7 year old dryer. I read reviews about clothes and sheets being all tangled. If you take the time to fluff the clothes and sheets you take out of the washer this doesn't happen. In the long run this machine will pay for itself. Less drying time means less electricity. Love the way I can program my own settings. Very easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually Dries Towels! I bought the dryer with the matching washer when our washer went out. Between the two, I am saving $50-100 per month in electric and water so they are paying for themselves. The sensor dry works extremely well. My favorite cycle is the "towels" cycle which actually gets towels dry on the first try on "normal" dryness setting. I used the Steam cycle today for the first time and it pulled the wrinkles right out of a few dress shirts. Like the washer, the controls are on the front which is genius. I also appreciate having the lint trap in the door (instead of on top).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best dryer ever!!!! I love the steam fresh and wrinkle free cylces. It doesn't shrink my clothes at all. Once the load finishes it is all dry. I don't need to iron at all,.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Dryer What a difference between THIS dryer and the 20 year old dryer it replaced! The choice of features and settings is great! My old dryer took forever to dry anything and everything was always very hot and wrinkled. This dryer is fast and the clothes, towels. sheets come out perfectly done and just about wrinkle free. A friend bought an LG washer and dryer a year ago and raved about them; now I know why. Definitely glad I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this dryer! I love this dryer. It has the best features that are easy to use. It never overdrives my clothes. The size is just right. It's not too bulky. I love all the different options and cycles. I can't wait to use the steam fresh cycle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall satisfied with product Has great features and drying cycles. Dries clothes much more quickly than my old dryer. I have found that the STEAM FRESH cycle leaves my garments too damp to wear immediately. But I have been able to work around this issue. I love having all push button controls, with no knob.
Date published: 2015-02-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT DRYER We bought this along with the matching washer. We are very pleased with this dryer. Less drying time but this is probably due to the washer spinning so much more water out of the clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome...... I have only had it about a month - haven't used all the features yet - but the ones I have used are awesome. It drys so quickly. Love the wrinkle free cycle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product! I love my new LG dryer. It has more features than I really need. I am still learning all of its capabilities. Hopefully I will eventually use all the features it offers. In terms of style, I really like the style with the glass in the door. The automated drying times are 'right on!' I haven't yet had to run additional time to get the clothes completely dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love it!!!!!! This was an early Christmas present from my husband. I've never had a brand new set before. My favorite feature has to be the steam fresh. I can toss a shirt in while I get ready for work and when I'm ready to go my shirt is nice and fresh, no wrinkles. Having the controls on the front is great too. No more reaching across the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best washer I've ever owned I don't have to go to the laundry mat for my bulky beddings wash. It handles all my beddings. The features are extraordinary. I had an issue of softener leaving residues after the wash. LG Customer Service fixed that. They advised me to dilute my softener with water. The softener is too thick to dissolves and that problem is gone. Less softener to use.

My dryer turns on but produces no heat. I tested all the thermostat fuses and relays and the heating element and they are in working order. I believe it's the pcb. I bought this dryer second hand. Can you please help me in getting a new control board?

The breaker required is 30A / 240V. What is the maximum wattage this dryer draws. Thank you

Asked by: LCA3
Wattage is the product of Voltage and Amperage, so if the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Front Control Design and SteamFresh™ Cycle, Model # DLEY1201W draws the full 30 amps at 240 Volts, the wattage will be 7.2 kW (7,200 Watts). Regrettably, the owner's manual does not include the wattage, however, the nameplate attached to the unit will list the units amperage draw at 240 V and you can calculate the peak wattage from that. The starting current is likely taken into account by the amperage listed on the nameplate. When the starting drive motor with the heating element is energized, the dryer may pull as much as what is listed on the nameplate. The dryer motor is rated for 240 V and the calculation of those numbers would be closer to the peak wattage used when the dryer is starting with the heating element on, so the calculation will be a conservative estimate...^IFV

The top of my washer and dryer are very scratched. They are both the painted graphite steel. Is there any way I can get the scratches out? Any product I can use? Any paint I can buy to do touch ups?
