Customer Questions & Answers

Does this need a water source and drain to dry the clothes?

I am not sure how this works. I currently have the LG Electronics 2.3 cu. ft. Washer and Electric Ventless Dryer. The dry cycle uses water to dry and requires input hoses for water and a drain hose for the water expelled. Does this work the same way? I looked at the instruction manual and could not tell. Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
No, you do not need a water source, nor do you need a drain. Personally, I wouldn't want a drain. We have been living in Germany for just over a year now, and this system seems to be the norm. The water collection is great for ironing, watering plants, washing and rinsing hair... We move back to CA next year and intend on purchasing this dryer again. Bravo, LG - more Californians should know about these dryers.

Is there an option to plug the compact LG washer into the matching dryer. Currently, I only have one 220V 3-prong plug where they will be stacked.

Asked by: Anonymous
every washer ive owned plugs into regular 3 prong outlet. only dryers and electric ovens ...high heat...need 220V,so u should be fine with just one 220 V as long as there is also a regular 3 prong outlet for washer near by. good luck!

Can I use this dryer to warm up my laundry room?

I have a Heat Pump water heater in the same medium sized room as my washer, current dryer and also my furnace's air inlet. It would be beneficial for these other appliances (and my energy bill) if this room was as warm as possible. Unfortunately the Heat Pump water heater cools the room's ambient air down considerably. Would this ventless dryer help warm the room's air back up? Or how much warmer is the air coming out of the dryer compared to going in?
Asked by: Anonymous
It would help warm up the room, but you'd be paying for all that heat in your electric bill so it's not a particularly good deal. The Whirlpool ventless heat pump dryer also heats up the room its in, but does so using less electricity. That might seem counter intuitive, that the heat pump water cools the room but a heat pump dryer warms the room. That's because the heat generated in the water heater cycle all goes into the water and then eventually down the drain. But with a ventless heat pump dryer, there's nowhere for the heat to go, other than staying in the room.

Customer Reviews

4.2 cu. ft. Electric Ventless Dryer in White is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 104.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly, I love this thing! I was totally prepared to loathe this dryer. I purchased it because it fit in my new teeny tiny laundry closet, and I didn't want to buy one of those laundry centers--so depressing!! It cost way more than I wanted to spend, it seemed too small, and I was convinced that the ventless feature was going to mean clothes were never really dry...ALL WRONG! I love my weird ventless dryer. It dries things perfectly every time, it has a completely "normal" load capacity, and is just generally a great little workhorse. We were able to hook ours up so it drains, so I have not had to use the reservoir, but it seems like no big deal, just an extra step. Quiet and efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in a NetZero home We put this dryer in our highly insulated net-zero home and both the efficiency using less electricity and the non-venting design means we can save energy both ways. Dryer generates less heat as the heat recycles, and the waste heat is not vented to the outside, so helps heat our home in the winter. Opening the door in the laundry room vents the extra heat in the summer. I like being able to adjust the dryness level for the sensor-dry feature. It does take a little more time to dry clothes, but for two of us, this is not really an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING quality and SIMPLICITY We have been very busy trying to locate decent ventless dryer a year ago. The reason for the ventless was that we live in a log home and the location of the dryer would not allow us to drill walls, create a vent for it (the best solution would only be routing the vent through a crawlspace) - the prior owner simply fed the air discharge into crawlspace - you can imagine how much clean-up we had to do. Ok. Lets talk about this dryer... 1. Whenever we need to dry our clothes (when it's not raining), we clean the filter, put our clothes, press "Bulk Items" and "start." That's it. About 1 to 2 hours - depends on load and how "wet" the items are. We run extra spin cycle on our washer, so clothes have less water content before we place into the dryer. Typically, it is 1.5 hours and it's done. 2. When ran at night, the "Light" feature makes this dryer look like UFO. 3. We have a curtain covering stacked dryer and washer. Whenever we close the curtain, we get an error message on the dryer and it gets pretty hot. Once we figured out to keep the curtain opened during the drying operation, no errors, no issues. If an error occurred, press "Power" button to reset. Than press it again and chose cycle, press "start." It works like a charm. So, the lesson - DO NOT ENCLOSE this dryer in a small space - the hot air does need to escape and not to heat-up the dryer. Most of the complaints about this dryer has to do with the error with temperature sensor. We think that the issue is with dryer becoming very hot because of the closed spaces. It does NEED to "breath" to discharge hot air out to the open. 4. Do purchase this dryer with a 5-year warranty from HD. We did and will not regret doing so - if anything is wrong - they will replace it. 5. We purchased this dryer during HD's appliance sale and the 120 dollars "saved" went into the warranty. Not bad. 6. We ran the water discharge into the the same washer outlet. So, we are not bothered with pulling out the water container to drain it. 7. The condenser/radiator has been cleaned once since we bought this dryer and is VERY easy to do. 8. Our cabin is an "open" floor space. It is a bit loud to run (the noise typical of a dryer) at night, so we plan our laundry activity accordingly. The hot air is an added benefit during winter months - what's the point of discharging this hot air to outside? Exactly! 9. The dials and options are very easy to understand - we have yet to read the manual on this dryer (!). 10. Upon purchase of this dryer and days worth of research - we now realize why this machine is THE BEST in its ventless dryer class. Our washer is a 3.6 cubic feet. So, according to "standards" our dryer is suppose to be 7.2 cubic feet dryer. Well, this little ventless champ at 4.2 cubic feet pulls off with no trouble (ttt). For a family of 3 it is performing quite well and doing laundry twice a week. Hope this information helps others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY I cannot recommend this dryer. We are on our third (second replacement). We bought the dryer and matching washer (no problems with the washer) and the dryer malfunctioned after 7 months - it was the water sensor. It took 2 months to finally get it repaired. Less than a year later the same problem occurred. This time it took 3 months for LG and Home Depot to admit it could not be fixed. The replacement dryer became inoperable immediately, flashing an error code that said "unplug and call service". The dryer was replaced again and again the replacement immediately malfunctioned. I can understand a lemon sneaking through - maybe even two. But three in a row indicates a systemic problem in the manufacture of this unit. It's a great idea - a compact little electric dryer - but stay away from this horrible machine until LG can work the bugs out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet and vent-free Very spacious and easy to access. Lots of drying options. This is a vent-free machine that removes the moisture from the air while drying and discharges it to a container that you empty every 3-5 uses. I plan to connect it to a discard pipe when my remodel is done. I live in a small condo and the machine is very quiet (provided that it was leveled at installation). If not level, there is a HUGE amount of vibration! No need for vibration pads - just level the machine (it is easy to do for a DIY'er). Do not assume that the delivery/setup team will level the machine at installation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Dryer for Apartment I moved into a loft downtown and needed a vent-less dryer as there were no external exhaust for a dryer. I looked everywhere for vent-less dryers and LG and Bosch were the only ones out there. Bosch was way more expensive so I went with the LG. I was concerned when I saw reviews stating that it didn't dry very well. So far it is great. It dries perfectly, takes 2 hours but it does dry very well. It also doesn't put too much heat back into loft and is very quiet and looks great! Must have for small areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good, small dryer We needed a smaller washer/dryer combo to fit inside a small closet. We replaced a previous all-in-one unit that never dried our clothes. This dryer auto-senses and dries accordingly. It even has a wrinkle care feature and you can turn off or turn down the end cycle beep (which is actually a fun song). It also came with a.) the stacking kit and b.) a dryer rack for delicate items you don't want to tumble. I've only had it for a month so not sure about the energy efficiency yet. Supposedly it's good. One thing we found out after the fact is that the dryer vents out the front meaning it's 'vent less'. This is fine but requires we keep the door open or add a slotted-vent panel. We opt to keep the door open and this works fine and the dryer is still quieter than the previous unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good Our fabulous 18-year-old compact dryer finally failed (along with its matching washer), forcing us to shop for a new laundry pair. Initially we were hoping to find a moderately priced conventionally vented dryer but, after researching the latest models, we finally bit the bullet and sprang for this LG DLEC855W ventless condenser dryer. We’ve only had the machine for a month, so the pros and cons listed below are tentative. The dryer is stacked over its matching washer LG WM1377HW in a very small space in the kitchen next to our refrigerator. We line-dry our wash most months out of the year but, in order to determine that the dryer is working properly, we have thus far testdriven the machine with about 10 loads of all kinds of laundry. PROS: • Drying options are more than sufficient and the machine has a must-have moisture sensor. • Drying capacity is excellent and drying time is only marginally longer (if at all) than our old vented dryer. • The heat that is recycled back into the house will definitely be a welcomed addition during the winter. • We have chosen to empty the condensed water directly into the drain, but having the reservoir option will definitely come in handy as well. • The machine also comes with a drying rack (which we have yet to use) and a drum light feature, both of which may also prove handy. CONS: • Given the bulging, rounded front of the design, the machine is substantially deeper that it needs to be and that’s unfortunate. • Periodically, the dryer makes a grinding noise, presumably due to the action of the pump pushing the water to the drain (or reservoir). • Bulky items like sheets ball up almost immediately and the reverse rotation of the drum is not able to undo the problem. • A powerful, industrial smell was emitted during the initial drying tests but seems to have decreased with each subsequent load dried. My assumption is that it is a temporary problem associated with the fact that the dryer is brand new and that after a few more uses the smell will be gone completely.
