White with TrueSteam Technology and NeveRust Stainless Steel Drum

Being able to combine style and great features is quite a feat but the LG DLEX5101W from the SteamDryer series is able to do it.

This dryer model has the capacity, the full use of steam technology encased in stylish but built to last materials. There are also additional helpful features such as the ReduceStatic option, which prevents static cling.

Interior Features

  • The use of True Steam technology is able to respond to several drying needs. Using real steam ensures that the garments are fresh and clean-smelling. The technology is also able to possibly eliminate the need for ironing some garments. The SteamFresh cycle is one of the drying programs that best represent what steam can do as it removes creases from and refreshes garments. This cycle can provide a quick fix as it may last only up to 20 minutes.
  • The EasyIron and ReduceStatic options make life just a little bit easier for consumers. As evident from the optionsí names, they make ironing easier to reducing creases and remove static to avoid clinging garments.
  • The LG DLEX5101W has 14 drying programs, 8 options and 5 temperature levels. So, the dryer is pretty much programmable. Any consumer should be satisfied by the wide range of options available to him.
  • The Sensor Dry system is an important feature that has been included in most LG Steam Dry series dryers. This technology helps in the detection of the level of moisture or dryness in the load. The dryer is able to respond appropriately to the loadís needs because of this ìknowledgeî.

    Exterior Features

  • The drum used for the LG DLEX5101W is made
    of NeveRust stainless steel. By the very trademark name itself, the consumer can figure out that the material does not rust. So, he can expect more years of usage. The top plate and the cabinet are made of painted steel. The door is made of glass, with a chrome rim.
  • The reversible door is very convenient to use in small laundry areas. The user can opt to open the door the other way for times when the other side of the door will be too crowded.
  • The control panel is sophisticated and user-friendly at the same time. The panel has a dual LED display and is made of plastic.
  • This particular model has a white exterior. However, graphite steel is available as an option.
