LG DLE2140W Ultra-Capacity Electric SteamDryer Dryer 7.1 Cubic Feet

White with SteamFresh and SmartDiagnosis Technologies

White with SteamFresh and SmartDiagnosis Technologies

The LG DLE2140W is a slightly smaller version of some of the other LG Ultra-Capacity dryers. It offers only 7 drying programs instead of 12 and has 7.1 cubic feet of capacity instead of the bigger models’ 7.4. Still, the dryer is impressive with its fabric caring features, such as the Wrinkle Care Option, the Sensor Dry System and a Custom Program.

Interior Features

  • It is a good thing that the Sensor Dry System is not cut off from the LG DLE2140W model. This feature ensures that the right amount of temperature will be used to dry the load. This system detects the amount of moisture and adjusts the drying time according to that amount.
  • The LG DLE2140W has 7 drying programs and 5 temperature levels. These are enough to provide the average consumer with enough options to create a customized load setting. This model is almost as programmable as most of the other LG Ultra-Capacity dryers.
  • With an LG trademark LoDecibel motor, the consumer can relax with a magazine or do some extra office or school related work while waiting for the load to dry. The noiseless operation makes this possible. The consumer is not stressed out when drying his garments.
  • Choosing the Wrinkle Care option may prove to be wise. The clothes that are loaded with this drying program set will have reduced creases. This can reduce the ironing time afterwards.

    Exterior Features

  • The LG DLE2140W showcases an intelligent and sophisticated dual LED control and display system. This system presents a double advantage. It is attractive and modern to look at, thus clinching the sleek look the Ultra-Capacity line is going for. It also makes the dryer
    user-friendly. The controls are found in front and there is a dial for the selection of cycles.
  • The dryerís door is white-rimmed, with glass. The overall exterior color is white, which can create a traditional and clean look in the laundry area.
  • The 7.1 cubic feet capacity can help in getting the drying chore done in a few minutes. There are cycles that enable the drying period to finish within 20 minutes or so. A fast cycle combined with the huge capacity should enable the consumer to spend less time in the laundry area. With less time in the laundry area, the consumer is also able to save on energy.

  • For consumers who do not really need all 12 drying programs of other LG Ultra-Capacity models, the LG DLE2140W is an affordable but still highly competent option. The dryer also comes with a 1 year limited warranty on parts and labor.
  • Fabrics are taken care of with the help of features that help ensure that the right temperature and drying time are used on each load.
  • Convenience features include not having to put in several loads per laundry day because of the dryerís big capacity. The consumer also does not have to contend with noisy operation.


  • The dryer does not come with Energy Star compliance
  • There are fewer drying program options.
