What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve had mine for 3 years and I’ve never had an issue! Love it!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New LG Gas Dryer I purchased 2/16/17 but I had not used it due to problem is getting serviceman to install it. Conn's delivery persons stated that they don't install gas dryers just deliver it. So I had to hire our propane service person to install it. It was installed on 3/23/17. It works wonderfully, will review later again after a couple of months.

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?
Asked by: Susanne
I apologize, but no; it appears that this gas dryer is not listed as qualifying for an Energy Star rating. Information about qualifying models can be found at http://www.energystar.gov/productfinder/product/certified-clothes-dryers/results?scrollTo=100&search_text=&sort_by=combined_energy_factor_cef&sort_direction=asc&type_filter=Gas+Clothes+Dryer&brand_name_filter_proxy=LG&brand_name_isopen=&other_features_and_characteristics_isopen=&markets_filter=United+States&page_number=0&lastpage=0&brand_name_filter=LG.

What are the instructions to flip the door from a left opening to a right opening?

It appears the machine is equipped to make an easy conversion with all necessary holes in place but not sure how to remove plastic hole fillers without cracking or breaking them
Asked by: Hanes
Use a very Sharp Screwdriver and pry from the side where the dryer opening is. Get a buddy to help. The door is a lot heavier than you think.

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.
