What people are saying
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Excellent Gas Dryer! I have had the gas dryer working for about 2 weeks now. I love it! Especially how efficiently it uses the natural gas to heat the clothes. The gas ignites, heats up the air, and turns off when it reaches the correct temperature, all the while the drum is tumbling. My clothes turn out to be perfectly dry, but not bone dry. I think this dryer is more gentle to my clothes than the electric dryer I had before this one. The dryer is very easy to use even without directions, although it did help to read through the instruction book first. Having the lint screen at the front of the dryer is very convenient. I can use the top as a folding table, which I've never had before. A great purchase!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase! I purchased the DLG5966G dryer over a year ago and just love it. Once you get familiar with how each setting performs it is a dream to use. Its big enough to easily handle a queen size bed of linens, comforter and all, plus a few towels and versitile enough to handle a few delicate pieces. My washer & dryer are located in my garage so noise was not really a consideration for me, but both the washer and dryer are much quieter than my previous units. This unit was a great value for me as well, Besides catching it at a great sale price, it qualified for a nice rebate from my local energy company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Capacity and Capability We purchased this dryer along with the washer and pedestals about two months ago. We love both pieces - and are very pleased with the dryer. It's funny now, but I initially had a problem that I thought was pretty serious. Immediately following installation, I ran two loads of wash and put it in the dryer. The load dried very quickly. I added the second load and after 15 minutes the "lint" buildup signal emitted. I opened the door, cleaned out the lint screen, and restarted the machine. Several minutes later it did this again. The pattern repeated several times. I was convinced something was wrong with the machine. After discussing my frustration with my husband, he investigated only to find that this new dryer is so powerful that it cleaned the lint that had built up in the vent hose for the last 5 years - so much so that it had plugged up the vent hole to the outside of the house. We could not believe it - and, once cleared, and ever since, the dryer has worked perfectly! This dryer is extremely easy to use, is cost effective because it shuts off with the auto dry and plays a cute little song to notify when a load is ready for folding. It is also a beautiful gunmetal gray - everyone comments how "pretty" the set is. I am extremely pleased with this machine and would highly recommend it.

LG dryer

The start button does not work anymore. If you depress and hold the button the dryer will work. Is this covered under a warranty? If not, how can I fix it?
Asked by: Corbycorb
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this gas dryer. It appears that there is a problem with the control panel that will require service. The warranty for the dryer is one year of parts and labor coverage, beginning at the time of purchase.

Configuration of vent out

I'm redoing my kitchen and would like to know if the vent can go up from the dryer (which is stacked on the washer) out through the attic. The vent is currently located down and out.
Asked by: ABDLA
We appreciate your interest in this gas dryer. While the venting can go up, it should be limited in its vertical extension, if at all possible, as if it runs too far, the moisture can fall back down into the ductwork. The exhaust duct run should be as short as possible.

Does the Dryer have to be hooked to gas to work?

I have to convert my dryer to propane. I plugged it in to see if I could try it before I spend the money to convert it. It lights up but only flashes the time it is to run, it won't spin. Does this mean it's broken? Or does it have to be plugged into gas to turn?
Asked by: Natlikell
This dryer is designed to be able to convert from Natural Gas to Liquid Propane. However, the unit should be connected to the gas line before it is connected to any electricity. It is recommended to check the unit once connected in order to determine its operation.
