What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this a couple weeks ago and so far I like it as much as anyone can like a clothes dryer. I love the pedestal. It has taken some getting use to what cycles and temps to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice simple gas dryer I bought this dryer to replace my 15 year old LG dryer. This model is quiet, and does not have steam dry, which I do not need. This model is being discontinued, so I hope it is as reliable as my last LG dryer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so many features to choose from I bought the drier jut less than a month ago and I am still finding new things about it. Last weekend I found that I could turn the time for drying either up or down which is great. So far I have never needed to put the drier above 30 mins and that I did only once, to find that the towels were too dry - so this time I can put them on for 25 minutes. Terrific.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely quiet performance and huge capacity. Really like this machine and it is easy to use. Only problem I have is with the tiny print on the selection feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet, Easy to Use We have a small home and limited space. This stackable unit was the best solution for our home. It is quiet, easy to use. I do think the moisture residue in the washer is a design flaw. I need to advise guests and monitor it, which seems atypical in using an appliance.

This cycle dries items at very high temperatures for roughly 70 minutes to eliminate bacteria from your clothing items.

What is the CFH or BTU/hr capacity? All I found is the pressure requirements.

How to light pilot light on gas dryer DLG3171W 

Asked by: Kim E
We appreciate your interest in this gas range. This model is not designed with a pilot light. When the knob for the burner is activated, this will start the use of an electric igniter to catch the gas and light the flame.

Dryer is making fire alarm go off and I would like to turn off the steam function associated with dryer. Would just like to use heat only thru vented duct and take away problems with condensation on closet door ( I have to keep closed so fire alarm off

Asked by: Jefd
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced during the use of this dryer. Generally, the STEAM options have to be activated manually before they are used. To prevent any such usage, you might attempt to utilize the TIMED DRY function, rather than one of the other presets.
