gas dryer DLG4971W. It says that it has a different drum made of aluminized alloy steel. The other models that are similar DLG1502W suggest a different steel drum and DLG3171 also. review sheet suggests the drum in the first item is inferior. Explain?

Asked by: gail martin
Hi Gail. Steel comes in many varieties and each of them has very specific features and qualities. Not sure that 'inferior' is the right word to use when referring to the Aluminized Alloy Steel Drum in the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large High Efficiency Dryer w/ Sensor Dry Technology, Model # DLG4971W. They are different types of steel in that economically, the production cost of Aluminized Alloy Steel is low when compared to that of Stainless Steel. Stainless Steel does not rust due to the presence of chromium in stainless steel, but the Aluminized Alloy Steel has a coating of aluminum to prevent corrosion. Aluminized Steel has a high thermal conductivity so it can withstand extremely high temperatures. Stainless Steel is also aesthetically more pleasing...^IFV

I have Large Dryer and I cannot get the CL on it to go away so dryer will work. The lint filter is clean. I unplugged it for 3o min still will not clear. Please help I have tons of laundry with 4 kids single parent.

Asked by: eagle1954
"CL" on the display indicates the child lock feature has been enabled. To disable, locate the key labeled child lock, press and hold for 3 seconds. The CL code on the display should disappear. For more assistance regarding codes on the display panel, please visit:

Your website under tech specs states the part number for the LP conversion is 4948EL4002B.The owners manual states 383EEL3002D.Which is correct?

Asked by: Wrenz71
Hi, We believe you might have misread the owner's manual for the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large High Efficiency Dryer w/ Sensor Dry Technology, Model # DLG4971W. Part # 383EEL9001B is the part number for the adapter kit that contains the necessary duct components to change the location of the dryer vent and Part # 4948EL4002B is indeed the part number for the LP Conversion Kit. Both listings in the specifications and in the manual are correct as is. Here's an excerpt from page 16 of the owner's manual: "Installing the Side Vent Kit An adapter kit, part number 383EEL9001B, may be purchased from your LG retailer. This kit contains the necessary duct components to change the dryer vent location."...^IFV

Convert to propane - Are there any adjustments after the correct oriface is installed. Also, If I ever needed to replace the drum, how would I do it?

In the future, it would be good yo have instructions specific to the DLG4971 on how to 'open it up' for trouble shooting. The instructions that came from LG with the orifice cover many machines and are not even what LG recommends on how to change the orifice. I want to know how to get the top and front off so that I can get to parts that may have to be checked if the dryer malfunctions. Your instructions mention adjusting regulator. Is that done on the DLG4971 and how?
Asked by: Jake67
We appreciate your interest in this gas dryer. Unfortunately it will not be possible to provide such information, as we are not technicians. It is recommended to have a licensed gas installer install the LP Orifice, using the instructions provided with the orifice. The replacement of the drum is also a task recommended to be performed by a service technician. 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

DLG4971W - How does Wrinkle Care work?

Every time I activate wrinkle care feature, the dryer doesn't end its cycle - the button blinks and the music advising the end doesn't play... is that normal? Must I manually turn it off if I choose wrinkle care feature?
Asked by: Vivian
We appreciate your interest in this washing machine. That which has been described is normal operation. When the WRINKLE CARE feature has been activated, the cycle does not actually end at the originally designated time. The load will continue to tumble, periodically, for up to 3 hours after the selected cycle is complete, or until the door is opened; whichever is the shorter of the events.

How high off the floor is the DLG4971W (floor to center bottom of the front edge) and where are the legs versus the side of this unit?

Re: the legs --- is the edge of each leg 3/4" or more from the sides of the unit? I am trying to understand if I need to remove a floor base molding to facilitate installation. Thanks in advance for your answers!
Asked by: Jones
We appreciate your interest in this dryer and its features. It appears that the feet are around an inch away from the edges of the cabinet. These specifications are subject to change without prior notification.
