What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washing Machine w/ Nice Extras This mashing Machine has turned out to have been a great purchase and worth all the purchase price/monies we invested in it and the dryer. The washer is very water and energy efficient that it help lower both our water and electric bills each month, so in the long run it is paying for itself over our old washing machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works Because I prefer Gas Dryers my choices were limited. I liked the looks and features of this dryer and also know that LG is a decent brand that can be trusted. I especially like the easyload door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer We bought this dryer a few weeks ago. It has a lot of bells and whistles, but it’s quite easy to operate. It works great and I love the window in the door!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dishwasher ! It's a handsome washer, very quite. Goes great with the other LG appliances I have replaced this year. The stainless steel both inside and out look great. Unit runs quite and no handles that stick out that hit your hips everytime you walk by it. Great buy and for the price, you can't beat it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I wanted in a Dryer, Dryer Our previous dryer had given up. It was time to get a new dryer. We have heard about LG from friends and went to investigate. We saw one at Grand Appliance and was very much impressed. The controls were easy to understand and easy to use. It was large enough for our needs. It drys our clothing quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Dryer has all the features and is quiet. I have had this for a few weeks now and I am a big LG fan. I work in insurance and risk management and have personally seen how LG stands behind their products. These are serious people and they make GREAT appliances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge! Glad we purchased the large capacity dryer. Didn't realize I was missing out with the smaller ones. Haven't quite mastered all the options and settings yet, but there are plenty!

Where is the dryer exit vent outlet on the back of the unit, center, left, or right?

I assume the outlet is near the bottom of the back side, just need to know where. Does the fan have sufficient power for a six foot vertical rise in the exhaust tube (standard diameter), with elbows at top and bottom? Do the dimensions shown in the specifications section include room in the back for gas line, electric line, and vent tubing, or do the numbers simply reflect the unit itself? Also, does it need a separate water source? Thanks!
Asked by: Gerhilgerdy
Hello Gerhilgerdy. The dryer vent for the LG 7.3 cu.ft. Ultra Large SteamDryer™ with EasyLoad™ Door, Model # DLGX5781VE is located centrally in the rear of the unit just above floor level. The dryer does not need a water line connection for the steam function. It has a steam feeder that needs to be filled with tap water manually. As for venting it vertically, building codes do not require horizontal venting but venting it vertically is not standard and can cause problems i that it can act as a moisture condenser. As the steam from your dryer is vented out, the outside air cooling the sheet metal causes the steam to condense on the inside and the wetness trickles down and may leak at duct fittings, causing wetness and possible mold on affected materials. The moisture in the duct also tends to collect lint, which forms an increasingly thick layer on the vent surface, thereby reducing the efficiency of your dryer. Since vertical venting is not covered in the owner's manual, we cannot determine if the fan will have sufficient power for the six foot vertical rise in your ductwork. You may need to get an inline Dryer Vent Booster Fan. The dryer does have LG’s Flow SenseTM duct blockage sensing system which detects and alerts you to restrictions in the installed household ductwork that reduce exhaust airflow through the dryer. So you also have that to aid you...^IFV

Can you use fabric softener sheets with Model DLGX5781VE Dryer?

Asked by: Asia
The manufacturer does not recommend the use of any dryer sheets or bars with this device. Fabric softener should be added to the washing machine, in the appropriate compartment, for addition to the final cycles.

how to get top off dryer

Cannot get dryer top off to do a conversion from natural gas to lp
Asked by: horseboy
We appreciate your interest in the conversion of this dryer. Generally, the upper plate of the dryer does not have to be removed for such a conversion process. However, as this process requires interior access to the machine, it will not be possible to assist in this matter, as we are not technicians. 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.

What is the minimum B.T.U. requirement of this gas unit?  I am unable to find it in any documentation online.  Also, the valve I have in the house is a 3/8" fitting.  Will that work for this gas dryer or will I need to upgrade the valve to a 1/2" fitting?
