What is the max temperature this dryer will reach?

Asked by: Momn
The amount of moisture or dampness in the clothes, the size of the load to be dried and even the steady flow or path of the hot air in the will affect the maximum temperature that the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLG3181W can reach. The temperature range is about 125˚ to 135˚F across the cycles in this dryer. As a reference, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission states that an adult can suffer third-degree burns after five minutes, if his skin is exposed to hot tap water at 120 F. Obviously, for your safety, we want to make sure that the dryer cannot cause harm as you are interrupting a cycle or unloading clothes after drying is complete...^IFV

Why does this machine require 15 amps? That seems like quite a lot for a gas dryer. The companion washer only requires 10 amps. I'm confused

Asked by: Moltj
We appreciate your interest in this gas dryer. According to our information, the Gas Power Supply requires an absolute minimum of 11.5 Amps, along with a little extra for the gas valve and the lamps and indicator lights. A 15 Amp fuse is the minimum required fuse to be used with this dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and terrific results I bought this dryer a couple of months ago and I cannot say a negative thing about it. It’s so simple to use and the lighted knob displays makes it perfect for easy programming. The musical chimes are a pleasant sound when the cycle is finished. I love the fluff cycle in case I don’t get to empty the dryer so the clothes aren’t wrinkled. I thought I would miss my old dryer because I am a creature of habit. But I prefer how easy this part of laundry has become. No complaints and I am impressed with LG performance and ease of use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from dryer This is my first dryer that isn't an old school top loader. The settings are a little confusing but I haven't had time to learn about them yet. The lint trap only seems to catch lint in the bottom left corner, not sure if that's normal or not. It dries everything, my down blanket I had to dry again but I think that's to be expected. I stacked the washer and dryer to save floor space and I'm liking that.
