      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

      My biggest complaint about this dryer is how wrinkled the clothes are. There are several levels to this problem. I have the washer that goes with this dryer and the clothes come out of it super wrinkled. I think this is sort of normal and believe the dryer should be able to get rid of them. There could be several solutions, but none of them work. First, I think there would be fewer wrinkles if the cool down part of the cycle was longer. The clothes are still very hot when the dryer is done and therefore they wrinkle up quickly after the dryer stops. The 'wrinkle care' option is helpful, but only turns the clothes a few times with each 'fluff', so really doesn't do much. When I was choosing a dryer, I thought the 'easy iron' function would help with the wrinkles. Boy was I wrong. This option is not an easy way to reduce wrinkles, but is designed to make ironing easy! Are you kidding me! I don't want to make ironing easier, I want to make it obsolete! If you use this option, the clothes come out quite wet so that you can iron out the wrinkles easier. Seems like if this was the goal you would just go directly from the washer to the ironing board. I don't see how this option helps anything. Also, if you use any of the steam functions, make darn sure the water bin is completely full before starting the cycle. The dryer will not beep at you to fill the water bin at the start of the cycle as you would think, but at the point in the cycle when it needs the water. By the time it gets to that point and beeps at you, you will never hear it. The signal on this dryer is so quiet #even on high volume# that I can barely hear it when I am in the same room. If you are in a different room, you will never hear it. The dryer will not have enough water to use the steam feature at this point an you will not know that it couldn't because you didn't hear it beep. It will just complete the cycle without the steam function that you thought you were getting. Why they switched to a bin instead of the 'y' hook up from the washer I will never understand. I am used to the water being automatic and don't remember to fill the bin each time. Most times the entire cycle completes without any steam because I forgot to fill the bin and never heard the beep telling me it needs water. LG has this cool app that allows technicians to 'talk' to your washer with your smart phone. Why can't they add a function to this app that will alert you on your smart phone when the dryer cycle is complete as you'll never hear the little song it plays at the end of the cycle. If you use the 'damp dry' signal, it is actually fairly annoying and long and loud, so you have a chance to hear it. I usually turn this on with every cycle so that I have a chance of knowing when the clothes are close to done! The best way I have found to attempt to minimize wrinkles is to let the clothes complete the regular cycle and then as soon as it's done #if you hear the signal# run it through the 'air dry' cycle. That way it cools the clothes off with no heat and slightly reduces wrinkles. I am extremely disappointed with how wrinkly my clothes are in this dryer. My last dryer had a great wrinkle reducing cycle that sprayed steam on the clothes several times while they were drying. Worked like a charm and eliminated the need for ironing. LG really missed the boat on this one. Other minor issues......wish you could turn the drum light on during the cycle. The only time the light comes on is automatically when you open the door. If you want to see anything during a cycle, you are out of luck. I see no point in a clear door if you can't actually see anything. As with the washer, I wish the selector would stay pointed to the last cycle I used. It is a pain to have to spin that thing around each time you use the dryer. It also takes two clicks to move through each cycle, so if you are moving to one of the cycles on the opposite side of the wheel, it takes quite a bit of spinning and beeping!

          This dryer has been great. Just make sure you shake the clothes out before putting them into the dryer. This is to make sure you do not have any clothes clumped together or the clothes will not fully dry.

              I have been using my LG DLEX5170W dryer for about 4 months. I absolutely love it. I love the pleasant chime at the end of the cycle. I love that I can steam the clothes that I sometimes leave overnight and have them look wrinkle free. I also love the sanitize steam option, having a 3 year old boy who loves to make messes. Overall this is my favorite dryer and I've owned around 5 other dryers.

                  This dryer has more than enough capacity to handle the largest loads from our washer. The steam functions are very convenient and work well. Still waiting for an opportunity to use the drying tray. Happy little ditty when turning it on and when load is finished. Love it so far!

                      I'd really, really like the dryer to signal the end of the cycle and still run for 30 seconds to give me time to get to the dryer before it completely stops.

                                      Love the way this dryer "knows" how long it needs to go to dry the contents. Also like the "rack" feature allowing delicate's to dry without tumbling. Sometimes we resent machines that are smarter than we are, but in this case we can forgive.

                                          Just like the matching washer, this dryer is full of options and is so quiet! I've only had it since December, but have nothing but praise for its performance. Haven't had to use the rack feature (which comes with the dryer, unlike some other brands where it must be purchased separately), but will be glad to have it when the need arises. I used the steam "freshening" option to freshen up my son's comforter before he came home on leave from the military and it worked great! I would definitely recommend both the dryer and the matching washer.
