Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for LG Electronics 7.3 cu.ft. Electric Dryer with Steam (Model: DLEX5170W and DLEX5170V). The BoolPool rating for this product is Excellent, with 4.50 stars, and the price range is $899 (White) - $989 (Graphite Steel).

The LG Electronics 7.3 cu.ft. Electric Dryer with Steam DLEX5170(X) has an assortment of features and technologies that enhances the drying process. The Steam option helps reduce static (especially in winter), while the Sensor Dry system monitors in-cycle moisture levels. This maybe the reason why the machine dries work clothes as well as delicates efficiently! For garments that need to remain flat, there is a removable drying rack.

Not only does it dry effortlessly, it also doesn't shrink the garments. Now your husband won't look at your t-shirt and say, 'honey when did you buy Isabella this top?!' For the kids clothes', there is also an antibacterial setting that sanitizes and removes any unquestionable organisms they might have attracted.

This resourceful dryer also comes with a FlowSense duct clogging indicator that lets you know when the duct needs a cleaning. Any day, better than smelling a soiled baby's bottom! Its lint filter is also easily accessible and collects lesser lint than other dryers.

This LG technologically advanced machine looks cool when turned on! With LED lights and musical serenades (to indicate the end of the cycle), the clothes always have a party in the drum! It even has a pause button that can stop the revelry midway for removing some clothes if needed.

But like any party hall, this affordable and worthy dryer has a capacity limit and it doesn't function well if it's filled with clothes up to the brim. Some reviewers also mentioned that clothes aren't completely wrinkle free, so don't put your iron away...yet.

Overall, the LG Electric Dryer with Steam DLEX5170(X) pays for itself in the long run as it's equipped with many intuitive, technological features that take a load off your hands!
