Customer Questions & Answers

How does the door open, side or top?

Asked by: Anonymous
The door on this dryer can open to the right or left. It came installed with the opening to the right. We switched it to the left. It was fairly simple, but the instructions leave out a step. I should have had the installer do it, but I forgot to ask when he was here.

How many BTU's does this dryer have? DLGX5171V

Asked by: moose
Hello Moose. Regrettably, there is a BTU rating listed in the specifications for the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Gas Dryer with Steam in Graphite Steel Model # DLGX5171V. That rating should be on the compliance data tag that is attached to the unit. The unit is a 120V, 15 amp unit and using that information to calculate the wattage, the wattage can be converted to BTU/hr would give you a BTU rating of 6141.9 BTU/hr, but that based on the available information and there may be a it more involved in getting a more accurate rating...^IFV

Customer Reviews

7.3 cu. ft. Gas Dryer with Steam in White is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 134.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with this dryer The capacity is great. It is very quiet and have the washer and dryer in our kitchen so this was a major consideration on choosing this machine. The steam drying is a nice feature. One thing I really like is that a carry on suitcase will fit on the drying rack. It may sound crazy, but I travel alot and brought home bed bugs from a nice hotel once. It cost over $5,000 to exterminate them. When I come home from a trip now, the first suitcase goes right into the dryer for 20 minutes. That will kill the bugs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Dryer! I searched many different products before choosing this one. I read tons of reviews and decided to go for it. First I love the way it looks but I love the way it dries my clothes even better. It is quiet and quickly dries my clothes in half the time my older dryer did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer!!! Great Dryer. In the default setting the clothes doesn't all come out dry especially when you have large load. The sensor stops based on the moisture content in the fabric. However it is not measuring all clothes in the dryer so there are times I have noticed it should have been running longer. I have found putting this to very dry setting it comes out dry. But that is two notches higher than default setting. Other than that it has been very nice experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Drying I am very happy with this dryer. My clothes dry in half the time of my old one. They all dry too. I used to have some wet ones among the dry ones. I was intimidated by all the buttons and features when it was first installed in my home. But very soon realized they were harmless and it is VERY EASY to use. It is very quiet while operating. I also like the look of it. The door can be reversed to open in the other direction if necessary.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK Dryer doesn't seem to be able to handle the large loads that its accompanying washer can. Sheets tend to ball up so that the center is not dry unless you keep monitoring the load. Clothes tend to come out more wrinkled but that is because the washer wrinkles them more unless you use the lower spin cycle. I find that using a dryer sheet along with softener in the machine helps the wrinkling. Like location of lint trap--in the doorway. Steam feature appears to spray water unevenly on load and takes a long time. I've thrown in a couple of damp washcloths and gotten just as good or better results much quicker. Love the chime that rings when it is done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satified with dryer! So far so good. We love this dryer. It's very efficient and dries our clothes just as advertised. It's quiet and easy to use. First time user of LG products and was a little skeptical at first but now i am very impressed. Digital display is awesome and works like a charm.
