What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lint Filter Dryer is 5 1/2 years old and I have the identical problem reported under reviews; that is, the right corner of the lint filter has apparently melted to the extent the filter doesn't seat properly and snags clothes as it dries. I have never had this problem in the 30 years since I started washing and drying clothes! No I'm looking for a replacement filter which I shouldn't have to pay for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Dryer Ever! I have had to replace the lint screen numerous times because it melts (usually right side). When the product screen becomes damaged in the corner your clothing gets stuck on the vent & twists. I ordered a replacement screen today & while doing wash tonight the dryer caught my shirt & tore off the top of it & then broke off. Just now it forced the dryer door to open while on due to catching another tie on a halter & yet ruining another top. I have spent so much on a defective product replacement & more on damaged clothing. I threw away a new shirt yesterday due to it shredding it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Function and Value I bought this dryer along with an LG washer three years ago. I am very happy with my purchase of both appliances and would highly recommend them to others. There are many settings and the dryer does a great job with delicate items all the way to thick comforters and towels. If I moved and had to purchase a new set, I would buy this one again. Thank you LG for building such good quality appliances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine - Good Value I bought this washing machine three years ago and was sharing my thoughts with friends on how much I liked it and they suggested I become an LG spokesperson. This machine is by far one of the best I have ever owned. It is quiet, cleans well, is easy to clean and maintain, and has no lingering odor like many other front loaders and the features are excellent. There is a wash delay, steam, allergen and sanitizing features. I steam wash expensive down comforters and they come out beautifully. I wash my husband's dress shirts he wears daily and they come out looking fabulous. It also cleans heavily soiled clothing as well. If I purchased a new home and had to leave this washer, I would not hesitate to buy the exact same one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the BEST washer I've ever had Clean, clean clothes!! Quiet, easy to use, product. Unbelievable results with our clothes. Actually rescues dingy looking clothes and makes colors pop!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Options for Drying Bought this to replace a 10 yr old dryer. Bought in 12/2013. Have had no issues and love the many drying settings. I like to dry my clothes to a damp feel. It's nice to have the dryer calculate dry time vs. running to check the clothes and hoping they weren't "cooked". It took me a little trial & error to get the settings I preferred, but absolutely love this dryer. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well Have tried some of the different settings and have been happy with the results. Can't wait to try all the other settings (there's a lot of them!).

My dryer will not shut off. Only if the door is opened will it stop. Even with the power off it still spins. Anyone have any idea what could be wrong?

Has LG done anything about the lint traps melting and warping?

Asked by: Tas1828
Typically, when a product is discovered to have a safety issue or product defect, the company notifies the public by various means about a recall for that product, consumer hotlines or other communication channels are established. The scope of the recall, that is, which serial numbers or batch numbers etc. are recalled, is often specified and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the company will announce a voluntary recall of the afflicted consumer product. You can visit our site at http://www.lg.com/us/public-notices/general for details. Since there aren't any recalls that were announced for the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Dual LED Display (Gas), Model # DLGX3471V, any issue with regards to the lint trap melting and warping would have been limited to a very small number of units and LG would have resolved the issue when it was reported...^IFV

Can a LG DLGX3471V natural gas dryer ( factory shipped ) be converted to electric?

Asked by: YoungstownOH
I apologize, but no; it is not possible for a gas dryer to be converted into an electric dryer. The gas dryer uses the gas heat to dry the clothing, and does not have the necessary electrical heating element that would be necessary for electric operations.

FLOW SENSE icon never lights up during installation test

I ran the installation test on page 29 of the manual. The InS code appeared as expected, the machine ran for two minutes then showed the code END as expected. However, during the test you are supposed to monitor the FLOW SENSE icon, and this icon never lit up. Is this normal, or should it light up with zero bars for a good test, light up with four bars for a bad test?
Asked by: JohnGardner
Thank you for your attention to my question, but I need a more helpful answer. You have quoted the manual back to me. I obviously have the manual, and have read it, because I refer to it by page number in my question. So again, the question is: should the ICON LIGHT UP WITH ZERO BARS or should it NOT LIGHT UP AT ALL. Put another way: during the test, does the outline and text light up, with bars lighting up only if there is blockage (no bars if the airway is clear, 1 bar for a little bit blocked, 2 bars for halfway blocked, 3 bars for quite a bit, and 4 bars for completely blocked), or is the box-and-text-and-bars icon all one thing that is ALL ON for blockage and ALL DARK for clear airway? The illustration in the manual shows an empty icon for the "no blockage" condition and an icon with four bars lit up for the "very blocked" condition. I saw neither of these, is that normal?
