LG DLEX2801L SteamDryer Riviera Front-Load Electric Dryer 7.4 Cubic Feet

Blue with Sensor Dry System and True Steam Technology

Blue with Sensor Dry System and True Steam Technology

Easy to use and attractive to look at, the LG DLEX2801L is a stunning addition to the Steam Dryer series. It is very capable, having been equipped with a 7.4 cubic feet capacity and trademark NeveRust stainless steel drum. The LG DLEX2801L also makes use of a great combination of True Steam technology and Sensor Dry System.

Interior Features
  • The LG DLEX2801L comes with 9 drying programs and 5 options up for selection. With 5 temperature levels to add to the roster, the dryer is pretty much customizable according to the individual√≠s needs. There are drying programs to suit different types of fabrics, from the delicates to the heavy duty loads.
  • Steam is used in different ways in caring for the fabrics. It can be used to ensure that bad odors are eliminated. The SteamFresh cycle may be used to take away the staleness of garments that may have been stored for a long time. The cycle takes only 20 minutes. Steam is also used in the SteamSanitary cycle, whose main aim is to sanitize garments.
  • Sensor Dry System is another important LG DLEX2801L feature. This system helps in ensuring that the dryer applies the right temperature and the right drying time to each load. This is only possible if the system can detect just how much moisture is present in the drum. When that amount is detected, the system knows just what to do to get rid of that amount.
  • There are features and programs that focus on cleanliness and hygiene. The SenseClean knows just how much cleaning the load still requires. There is also an allergen cycle that aims to get rid of possible allergens from the garments.

    Exterior Features

  • The Riviera Blue exterior is the
    first most striking thing a potential buyer will notice about the LG DLEX2801L. There are alternate colors, however, to appeal to varying tastes. The two other colors are white and wild cherry red.
  • The LG DLEX2801L makes use of intelligent controls on its control panel. There is a dual LED display that provides some sophistication. The actual control knob though is still reminiscent of older models of appliances, being of the dial-a-cycle form.
  • The drum is made of NeveRust stainless steel. This means that it is built to last and to remain rust-free. The drum does get exposed to some degree of moisture.
  • The door, which is reversible, operates with a child lock system that secures the contents in during operation. Children and even adults, for that matter, will not be able to open the door when a cycle is going on.
