What people are saying
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked great....for 3 years I was loving my dryer until a week ago. We just had someone come out to look at it, and it turns out we need a new control panel. The dryer has only been used for 3 years in a 2 person household. For what we paid, I expected more. And the steam function has never worked properly. It just soaks the clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture! My wife and I bought our new LG OLED T.V. as our Christmas present. We love it! The picture is definitely a step above our older HD LED T.V. The brightness of the picture really makes for an extremely clear, sharp image. My only regret is that we didn't bump up in size to the 65.

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

Just purchased this dryer! Pluged in have all lights and power just wont start! Does something have to be in it ?? Is it that smart or broke!! 

Asked by: Scott lv nv
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. If nothing happens when the POWER button is pressed, then there may be a problem with either the connection of the power cord or the power supply itself, or possibly another related component. Check the connections on the power cord first. If this does not resolve the matter, then the unit may require service. 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 http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

I have a 4 prong and have moved into an apartment that requires 3 prong? Is there an adapter I can buy or if I have to change the cord where can I find instructions to do it? 

Asked by: aries1573
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. We have no adapters available, nor are aware of any, to convert a 4-prong dryer cord into a 3-prong cord. Instructions on how to remove and install a power cable are listed in the owner’s manual on pages 23-26. If there is any uncertainty, it may be recommended to obtain the assistance of a professional installer or a qualified service technician.

Is this dryer stackable?

Asked by: Baci
I apologize, but no; this model has not been designed as a stackable product. The matching washer has not been configured in such a manner as to allow other devices to be mounted to it.
