LG DLG5966G, Front-Loading Gas Dryer, 7.3 Cubic Feet

Pearl Gray with Sensor Dry and Dial-A-Cycle

Pearl Gray with Sensor Dry and Dial-A-Cycle

This extra-large capacity front-loading dryer has the Sensor Dry system, which detects moisture on clothes and automatically adjusts the cycleís temperature and drying time. The modern, easy to use Dial-A-Cycle control panel sits next to a state-of-the-art LED display. Lint buildup and airflow decrease are monitored by the unitís FlowSense technology.

Interior Features
  • The Sensor Dry technology senses the moisture inside the drum accurately. Once the system is sure that the clothes are dry, it shuts off the dryer automatically even before the drying time ends.
  • The Precise Temperature Control with Variable Heater dries your clothes evenly and rapidly. It also takes care of your delicates by giving them just the right amount of heat every time.
  • The dryer drum is made of rust-proof NeveRust stainless steel. The extra-large 7.3 cu. Ft. capacity takes care of large pieces, while the drying rack is useful for items that cannot be tumble-dried, such as shoes, stuffed toys and knits. The drum light makes loading and unloading easier.

    Exterior Features

  • Made with a transparent glass rimmed with chrome, the door is ideal for small areas because it is reversible, which means that it can be opened from either side. The dryer unit can also be stacked on top of a compatible washer.
  • The Dial-A-Cycle control panel has LCD display where you can check the cycle status and drying time. The Child Lock option secures the dryer and the End of Cycle Beeper alerts you when a cycle finishes.
  • The painted top plate and steel cabinet make the unit durable. Aside from Pearl Gray, this model is also available in White.
