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.


What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Features Features Features I bought this dryer on an incredible sale. I Own quite a few LG products and have become a big fan of not only the products but the customer service as well. This dryer does it all and you couldn't get more simplistic on the operation. On 99% of the loads we do you simply open hamper door, drop clothes in and press the normal button and start. The dryer does the rest using its sensors to detect moisture. I have been seriously overdrying and frying my clothes for years. You can tell the difference of freshness when you take your clothes out of this dryer. No more over drying and burning out that fresh smell from the wash. I have had this product now for around a month and I could not be more pleased. As other reviews state, very quiet machine. Our hookups are in the garage so getting a text from your dryer letting you know your clothes are ready is just another BA function built in. Great job LG.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please take it back! I usually LOVE LG appliances and products. I've had the washer/dryer set for 3 months. The dryer wrinkles my clothes. I have to steam them a few times afterwards. I wish I could exchange these for a better set. I know that I am now stuck with them. Glad they work for most of you. :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer My wife and I purchased this dryer because it was on sale at Sears. This dryer has exceeded our exceptions by a long shot. We are so happy that we are now able to steam our clothes and that our dryer tells us when it is done drying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, efficient with great options. I am very happy with my LG dryer, love the many options it offers, including the "hamper" style door. The steam setting is wonderful and used quite often.

can i use dryer sheets in this dryer

Asked by: Pete Brown
The owner's manual for the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.3 cu. ft. Smart wi-fi Enabled Front Control Electric Dryer w/ EasyLoad™ Door, Model # DLEY1901KE does not come with any cautions against the use of dryer sheets with this model and their use will not permanently damage the dryer. The debate about the use of using dryer sheets in a dryer is that they may affect its operating efficiency because they leave a residue that may clog your lint filter and reduce air circulation which could result in increased utility costs. That residue may also cover the electronic sensors in the dryer that detect moisture in your clothes and turn the dryer off to prevent it from overdrying your clothes which could also increase your utility costs. However, if you do use dryer sheets, you may want to add wiping these sensors off as part of your monthly maintenance or more frequently depending on how often you use dryer sheets...^IFV

I'm purchasing my product from Sears. They're asking me if I want left, right or bottom venting, and if I want the door to open to the left. I'm confused because I thought the door opens 3 different ways and it has 4-way venting. What's the differences?

Asked by: BBBri
The LG EasyLoad can be tilted open from the top, hamper-style, allowing you to easily load the dryer without items falling on the floor. The door still swings open to provide easy access for unloading or loading of bulkier items. The door hinge can be reversed to adjust to the installation location. The dryer is shipped to vent to the rear. It can also be configured to vent to the bottom or side (right-side venting is not available on gas models). ^CP

Asked by: UnhappyPdx
Yes this model is compatible with the sidekick pedestal but will require the pairing kit model TSTK1. ^CP

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.
