Big time saver

Big time saver

Do laundry a little less often. With 7.3 cubic feet of capacity, this dryer handles really large loads. Saving you time and energy.

Think you can’t do laundry on the go? Think Again.

Expand the limits of your laundry room with the LG SmartThinQ® app. Select a cycle, start or stop the wash and get notifications about when your laundry will be done, all from your smartphone. It even works with the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you can manage your laundry with simple voice commands.

A revolutionary spin on laundry

LG puts a modern spin on the traditional top load design. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Open Up to Convenience

The dual-opening options of the LG EasyLoad™ door make loading and unloading the dryer easier than ever. Transferring wet clothes from the washer? Simply press the release button and pull the door down, hamper style to keep that stray sock from hitting the floor. Removing dry items? Swing the door to the side to clear the way for your basket below. Even tight spaces and challenging laundry-room layouts are no match for versatility like this.

Experience Steam Cleaning

There's no clean like a steam clean. Our Steam™ technology gently but powerfully penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt, odors and wrinkles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dryer does it's job well, but controls need work This dryer replaces an 8 year old LG dryer that stopped working. Dryer cycles work better than the previous model and the unit is very quiet. My wife likes the steam cycle as it takes alot of wrinkles out of the clothes and works better than the wrinkle-free cycle. I like the door that covers the lint screen hole when it's removed. Twice a sock or wash cloth went down the duct and got stuck in the fan. Had to take the dryer apart to free the fan. Also like the wifi connection which lets me know when the dryer is done. Should have the option to send a SMS or email notice which most smart phones are setup for. The door design needs some work as it only pulls down 40 degrees. Need it to open a full 90 degrees to be more useful. The control panel needs some design work too. The user should only have to push the cycle they want on the display, not have a dedicated cycle button that has to be pushed multiple times till the cycle they want is highlighted. Also, the double function buttons don't all work the same way which is a little confusing. There's plenty of room to add buttons to eliminate the double functions.

Where do you find the WiFi password for the dryer

Asked by: Biblejason
Hold the wifi button until the icon flashes. Your dryer will make a temporary WIFI network. When you connect to it, the password is the last four digits of the temporary wifi network name repeated twice to make it eight digits; it's case sensitive.

Is it necessary for the dryer with steam feature to be operated with out hooking up the water line? More specifically if you don't want to use the steam feature.

Asked by: Cat64
You would not be required to use the steam features. We would just recommend not selecting any steam cycles if the machine is not connected to a water supply.

How long is the steam hose? Need to know if need longer one to reach water outlet.

Asked by: Cbw123
The hoses that are supplied with the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Front Control Electric Dryer with EasyLoad™ Door, Model # DLEY1901WE are not for connecting to your water supply. You would need to use your cold water inlet hose for that so you're free to get a hose that is sufficiently long enough to reach your cold water faucet. Supplied with the dryer is a Y connector a two hose, one of which is a bit longer than the other. Your washer's cold water hose connects to the Y connector so you can split the cold water supply into two branches. The shorter hose that is supplied with the dryer connects to one branch of the Y connector at one end and to the cold water inlet valve on your washer at the other end. The longer of the two hoses then connects to other branch of the Y connector at one end and is long enough to reach the water inlet valve at the bottom of the dryer for a cold water supply for the dryer...^IFV
