Customer Questions & Answers

does it come with a dryer rack, or can I buy one for it?

Asked by: Anonymous
this dryer comes with a rack
Answered by: Rick
Date published: 2015-09-17

is this dryer hooked up to your cold water for steam? Also, I have a door near the dryer. How many inches does venting add to the depth of the dryer

Asked by: Anonymous
water is poured in similar to an iron, rear vent only adds a few inches.

Does dryer 5170 LG need a water hookup?

Asked by: steve
No. It has a receptacle on top to fill with water if you use the steam feature.

When dryer starts, it's noisey for about 30 to 45 seconds and quiet the rest of the cycle

Asked by: Anonymous
that could be the imbalance of the load until it has been rotated fast enough to evenly distribute itself

Customer Reviews

7.3 cu. ft. Electric Dryer with Steam in Graphite Steel is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 472.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily handles family of 7 Because of some unfortunate circumstances our daughter and her 4 children had to move in with us. The amount of laundry we have was overwhelming for me.....until our previous 5 yr. old washer died from overuse! I researched washers and dryers and settled on 2 Brands based on reviews, service and price. We decided to go with LG because of the service and reliability of LG. When you want to know insider info. ask a salesperson that hears customer complaints and technicians that work on multiple brands. I used to cringe at the amount of laundry our family generates. We live in the country and the type of work my husband does is really dirty most days.Plus we have 2 grandsons that play sports and get very dirty too. The heavy duty cycles make cleaning and drying their clothes easy and much faster. The wave technology ensures a clean load. And with a steam cycle and drying rack the dryer can handle any thing my family throws at me. (not literally) LOL We also have toddler and teenaged granddaughters. Their clothes are delicate and I love the gentle options provided to help care for their clothes. I am smiling now when I hear the little song signaling my laundry is done. It still surprises me how much faster the loads are finished compared to my old washer and dryer. With the large capacity, clothes wash better and don't wrinkle as much and dry faster too. No more overwhelm. Thanks LG

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer, Great Features We bought this dryer 3 months ago and completely love it. It drys our clothes quickly and efficiently. The steam feature has come in very handy on a few occasions. I would definitely recommend this dryer to anyone who is looking for a good dependable dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful dryer Does an excellent job drying all of my laundry items. Very easy to use, with lots of options (damp dry, very dry, etc.). Very easy on my clothes. Love this dryer! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the investment Our previous dryer had to be replaced only after two years. It would "eat" our clothes - leaving a black mark on them. We went the less expensive route thinking all we needed was to get our clothes dried. Before purchasing this dryer, I did a lot more research looking at ratings to see what others had to say about the product quality and longevity. We use our dryer about 5 times per week so I did not want to have to worry about replacing it after a couple of years like the previous time. We went with the LG dryer after looking at the ratings. It was more than I wanted to pay, but it has been more than worth it. It is nice to have dryer that just does what it should - dry, but not damage my clothes. I do like the other options and the feature where it adjusts the time based on how quickly the clothes have drried.We still not have used all the features, but could not be more pleased. Sorry for the long review, but I hope it is helpful to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dryer is great! This dryer is so efficient--my clothes (even jeans and toels) are dry on the designated cycle, and the permanent press items look terrific. Plus the cycles are fast so less energy and better timing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This dryer wrinkles all my clothes I have been very disappointed in this dryer. My clothes all turn out wrinkled even when I reduce the temperature and drying time. I am using the Perm Press setting to help with the wrinkling, but it still happens. We are all frustrated about how our clothes look with so many wrinkles. The steam feature has not helped with the wrinkling issue. My old dryer never wrinkled my clothes, but this dryer produces nothing but wrinkled clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife absolutely loves this dryer After two and half years of using a brand new lower quality washer and dryer that came with our new townhouse, my wife wanted a new set with more options and ones that actually cleaned the clothes. She absolutely loves this set and calls them her "Cadillac" washer and dryer. They are very easy to use and they do everything she wants them to do. The clothes come out so much better than they used to with the old machines. She can't stop talking about them and shows them off to everyone who comes over. They handle even the king size quilts we have with ease. They are so quiet you hardly know they are even running. All around excellent machines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dries laundry in so much less time Everything with the operation of this dryer is fabulous! Huge capacity, fast drying cycles, preset functions cover all aspects of loads, & unit is so quiet you need the little musical chime to let you know when it is finished. Seemed a little pricey at first but after using the features & realizing the high tech.functions, the price is in line. Really have been very satisfied with the pair so far!
