Gets the job done. I bought this dryer because it was on sale at the local box store, I have an LG washer that works fine, and LG in general and this dryer in particular rated high in a certain consumers’ rating guide. Because there are so many setting options it’s taking awhile to figure out just which ones to use so that when the signal chimes, my clothes are actually dry. I’m sure I’ll get to the point where I use pretty much the same three settings for everything. It would be nice if the finish signal wasn’t the same as or so close to the washer finish signal! And when I toss clothes from the washer into the dryer, and again when I pull a handful of laundry out of the dryer, little things – socks, underwear, the dishcloths that are used on the kitchen counter and for washing dishes – fall to the floor that hasn’t been mopped in a disgracefully long time. I’ve been using a basin to catch most of the falling laundry (because the average laundry basket is too tall to sit under the open dryer door), but that basin gets used for many household tasks and might only look more sanitary than the floor.

So, it’s a dryer, it dries clothes, and that’s what I bought it for, hence 4 stars. I could do without the superfluous settings, it would be nice if I didn’t hear the finish signal and stop what I’m doing to go pull out the dry clothes only to find that what I heard was actually the washer, and I sure do miss having a dryer door that opens downward to act as a platform for falling clothes.

Hi Jeremi. The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLE3170W has its own terminal block that must be connected to a separate 240 VAC, 60-Hertz, single-phase circuit fused at 30 amperes. Depending on your local codes and regulations, or in their absence, the latest edition of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, you can use either a UL-Listed 30 A, 240 V, 4-wire or 3-wire #10 AWG-minimum copper conductor power cord through a strain relief. There are two issues that you will encounter with attempting to use this in a 50 Amp receptacle. The first issue is that the 4-wire and 3-wire receptacles do not have the same NEMA Configuration and neither does the 50 Amp receptacle so the plugs on the power cords will not fit into a 50 Amp receptacle. The second is that plugging a 30 amp unit into a 50 amp circuit creates a potential fire hazard because the the dryer could overload and a 50 amp breaker won’t allow for it to trip properly.With that said, ALWAYS maintain 30 amps throughout the circuit, including your receptacle/plug, wire and breaker…^IFV

The temperature inside the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 7.4 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer w/ NFC Tag On Technology, Model # DLE3170W will range from about 125°F to approximately 135°F. Low heat will average around the 120-125°F range, while medium heat will average in the 130-140°F range and high heat approximately 140-155°F. However, the size of the load being dried, the amount of moisture in your clothing and the evaporation of water from your clothing can affect the temperature or reduce the internal temperature. Lint accumulation can block the flow of air which in turn can affect the temperature. As a reference, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission states that an adult can suffer third-degree burns after five minutes if his skin is exposed to hot tap water at 120°F. For safety reasons, in most current dryers, the internal temperature has been reduced to a range of 125°F to 135°F across the cycles to make sure that the dryer cannot cause harm as you are interrupting a cycle or unloading clothes after drying is complete…^IFV
