What people are saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's great but I have been waiting for LG to come out with this model with the doors not drawers for the bottom freezer. I think it's great. The whole layout is good with the shelves adjusting and the special use locations. The LED lighting is very good. No place for your food to hide and be forgotten. I also thought the cost was very good for all the features. The 5 year guarantee on the compressor is great. I like that there are no handles protruding at all which allows more front room and gives it a sleek look. The only thing that I have a bit of an issue with is that it's high. My 5 foot mate has a problem with the top shelves and I had to get her a step stool to help her reach the items on that shelf it beyond that it's a great beautiful refrigerator. One further thing. The width is 1/2 inch too wide for my space and I had the widen it to accommodate it but it was worth it. I'm pleased with this LG frig and have been with all my LG appliances.

What are the possible reasons to why my dryer isn't getting hot and leaving my clothes damp?

Asked by: Angelicaguzman17
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this gas dryer. It is recommended to check the exhaust duct for obstructions, as this can keep some of the moisture in the machine, and prevent proper operation. If this does not resolve the matter, then the unit may require service. 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 http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

I tryed a test pressing temp. Control and power at same time. And after that I pressed start button and dryer suppose to start test but on displey I see dE letters. Whats that mean?

Asked by: insomnia
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this gas dryer. A dE error code indicates that there could be an abnormality with the Door Switch. This is a code which only appears when running the Test Cycle as has been done. 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 http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

The dryer keeps cutting off before clothes are dry. Sometimes d80 or d90 error code appears.

Asked by: Jim12345
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dryer. According to our information, the d90 indicator is designed to denote that the exhaust duct, whether in the hose or through the wall, is about 90% blocked. The d80 then would be 80% blockage. This needs to be cleared before attempting to use the machine again.

Is the DLGX5681W energystar?

I can get a rebate from NJ if my new unit is energystar rated. I can't tell if this unit is or not. Is it?

changing the door hinges

i am trying to change the door on my dryer to the opposite side model number DLEX5101W
Asked by: TRACYE
Open the door and remove the two plastic hole caps on the catch side by gently prying them up with a flat blade screwdriver. Save these for later. While supporting the door, remove the 4 screws (2 from each hinge). Set the door aside, face down on a protected surface, to prevent damage to the door or the work surface. Remove the 16 screws on each side of the door and lift off the inner door frame using a flat blade screwdriver. Remove the latch hook and blank and move them to the opposite side. Remove the 4 screws securing the hinges to the door frame. Remove the 2 plastic cover caps. Reinstall the hinges and cover caps on the opposite sides from which they were removed. With the hinges and cover caps in the new locations, remount the inner door frame onto the outer door frame with the screws removed previously. Reinstall the door onto the hinges, now located on the opposite side of the cabinet. Reapply the 2 plastic hole caps. Test the swing of the door to make sure the hinges and latch are properly aligned, and that the door closes and latches properly.

What is the height as measured at the front of the unit?

Spec sheet and manual only show height including rear control panel. I have a door that opens adjacent to the dryer location and need to make sure the latch both will clear the dryer height..
