not exhausted outdoors, some fine lint and
large amounts of moisture will be expelled
into the laundry area. An accumulation of
lint in any area of the home can create a health
and fire hazard.
• Use only rigid metal or flexible metal 4-in.
diameter ductwork inside the dryer cabinet
or for exhausting to the outside. Use of
plastic or other combustible ductwork can
cause a fire. Punctured ductwork can cause
a fire if it collapses or becomes restricted by
means of poor installation.
• Ductwork is not provided with the dryer, and
you should obtain the necessary ductwork
locally. The end cap should have hinged
dampers to prevent backdrafts or vermin
from entering when the dryer is not in use.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
fire or death.
• The exhaust duct must be 4 in. (10 cm) in
diameter with no obstructions. The exhaust
duct should be kept as short as possible.
Make sure to clean any old ducts before
installing your new dryer. Failure to follow
these instructions can result in fire or death.
• Rigid or semi rigid metal ducting is
recommended for use between the
dryer and the wall. In special installations
when it is impossible to make a connection
with the above recommendations, a ULlisted flexible metal transition duct may be
used between the dryer and wall connection
only. The use of this ducting will affect drying
time. Failure to follow these instructions can
result in fire or death.
• DO NOT use sheet metal screws or other
fasteners which extend into the duct that
could catch lint and reduce the efficiency
of the exhaust system. Secure all joints with
duct tape. For complete details, follow the
Installation Instructions. Failure to follow these
instructions can result in fire or death.

grounding must conform to the latest edition of the Australian Standards Electrical Code and all
applicable local regulations. Please contact a qualified electrician to check your home’s wiring and
fuses to ensure that your home has adequate electrical power to operate the dryer.
Electrical Requirements for Electric Models Only
wWARNING:
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using this
appliance, follow basic precautions, including the following:
• This dryer must be connected to a grounded
metal, permanent wiring system, or an
equipment-grounding conductor must
be run with the circuit conductors and
connected to the equipment-grounding
terminal or lead on the dryer. Failure to do
so can result in fire, explosion, or death.
• The dryer has its own power cord that must
be connected to a separate 230-240~ VAC,
50-Hertz, single-phase circuit, fused at 20
amperes (the circuit must be fused on both
sides of the line).
wWARNING:
• If in doubt, a qualified Electrician should
check the compatibility of the electrical
supply and it’s wiring before making any
electrical connection.
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using this
appliance, follow basic precautions, including the following:
•Do not modify the plug and internal wire provided with the dryer.
• If it does not fit the outlet, a proper outlet will

FINAL INSTALLATION CHECK
Once you have completed the installation of the dryer and it is in its final location, confirm proper operation
with the following tests and Duct Condition Testing on the following page.
ELECTRIC MODELS
Close the dryer door, press the ON/OFF switch
to turn the dryer on, and start the dryer on a heat
setting. The exhaust air should be warm after the
dryer has been operating for 3 minutes.
Checking Levelness
Once the dryer is in its final location, recheck
the dryer to be sure it is level. Make sure it is
level front to back and side to side, and that
all 4 leveling feet are firmly on the floor.
Checking Airflow
Effective dryer operation requires proper airflow.
The adequacy of the airflow can be measured
by evaluating the static pressure. Static pressure
in the exhaust duct can be measured with
a manometer, placed on the exhaust duct
approximately 2 ft. (60.9 cm) from the dryer.
Static pressure in the exhaust duct should not
exceed 0.6 in. (1.5 cm). The dryer should be
checked while the dryer is running with no load.
15
FLOW CHECK (DUCT CONDITION TEST)
Your dryer features FlowSense™, an innovative sensing system that automatically detects
blockages and restrictions in dryer ductwork. Keeping ductwork clean of lint buildup and
free of restrictions allows clothes to dry faster and reduces energy use.
NOTE: When the dryer is first installed, this test should be performed to alert you to any
existing problems with the exhaust duct in your home. However, since the test performed
during normal operation provides more accurate information on the condition of the
exhaust duct than does the installation test, the number of bars displayed during the two
tests may not be the same.

wWARNING:
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons when using this
appliance, follow basic precautions, including the following:
• Check all pockets to make sure that they are
empty. Items such as clips, pens, coins, and
keys can damage both your dryer and your
clothes. Flammable objects such as lighters
or matches could ignite, causing a fire.
Failure to do so can result in fire, explosion,
or death.
• Never dry clothes that have been exposed to
oil, gasoline, or other flammable substances.
Washing clothes will not completely remove
oil residues. Failure to obey this warning can
result in fire, explosion, or death.
• Combine large and small items in a load.
• Damp clothes will expand as they dry. Do not
overload the dryer; clothes require room to
tumble dry properly.
• Close zippers, hooks, and drawstrings to
prevent these items from snagging or tangling
on other clothes.
CHECK THE LINT FILTER BEFORE EVERY LOAD
Always make sure the lint filter is clean before
starting a new load; a clogged lint filter will
increase drying times.
To clean, pull the lint filter straight up and roll any
lint off the filter with your fingers. Do not rinse or
wash the filter to remove lint. Push the lint filter
firmly back into place. See “Care and Cleaning”
for more information. A vacuum cleaner with
a soft bristle attachment can also be used to
remove the lint from the filter.
Always ensure the lint filter is properly installed
before running the dryer. Running the dryer with
a loose or missing lint filter may damage the
dryer and articles in the dryer. It can also cause
strong odours and fire.

Sensor Dry Cycles
Manual Dry Cycles
Sensor Dry cycles utilize LG’s unique dual sensor
system to detect and compare the moisture level
in clothes and in the air and adjust the drying
time as needed to ensure superior results. The
dryer automatically sets the dryness level and
temperature at the recommended setting for
each cycle. The estimated time remaining will
be shown in the display and may change during
the cycle operation to reflect a more accurate
estimation.
Use Manual Dry cycles to select a specific
amount of drying time and a drying temperature.
When a Manual Dry cycle is selected, the
ESTIMATED TIME REMAINING display shows
the actual time remaining in your cycle. You can
change the actual time in the cycle by pressing
MORE TIME or LESS TIME.

THE LCD DISPLAY (cont.)
9 FLOW SENSE™ DUCT BLOCKAGE
• 2 bars are displayed In the LCD screen.
SENSING SYSTEM INDICATOR
The FLOW SENSE™ duct blockage sensing
system detects and alerts you to blockages
in the ductwork that reduce exhaust flow
from the dryer. This improves operating
efficiency and helps minimize service calls,
saving you money.
If no bars are shown in the
display, the ductwork is free from
blockages.
If two bars in the display are
lighted, examine the dryer
exhaust system for lint build up
or other restrictions, including
damage, excess length, foreign
objects, etc. See note below.
If all bars are lit, the dryer
ductwork has a blockage
that needs to be removed
immediately.
NOTE: If the duct has been checked and
cleaned and two bars are still displayed after
several cycles, then there is some restriction
in the duct due to length, condition, etc. In
this case, no further action is necessary and
the dryer can be used normally. However,
drying times may be increased and there may
be some reduction in operating efficiency

Never use steel wool or abrasive cleansers; they
can damage the surface.
Cleaning the Interior
Wipe around the door opening and seal with a
soft, damp cloth to prevent lint and dust buildup
that could damage the door seal.
Clean the window with a soft cloth dampened
with warm water and a mild, nonabrasive
household detergent; then wipe dry.
Always clean the lint filter after every cycle.
To clean, open the dryer door and pull the lint
filter straight up. Then:
1 Roll any lint off the filter with
your fingers, or
The stainless steel drum can be cleaned with
a conventional stainless steel cleaner, used
according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
Never use steel wool or abrasive cleansers; they
can scratch or damage the surface.
2 Vacuum the lint filter, or
Cleaning Around and Under the Dryer
Vacuum lint and dust from around the dryer and
underneath it regularly. Vent ductwork should be
checked for lint buildup and cleaned at least once
per year. If any noticeable reduction in airflow or
drying performance occurs, immediately check
ductwork for obstructions and blockages.
3 Wash the lint filter in warm,
soapy water and allow to dry
thoroughly before reinstalling.
Maintaining Ductwork
Vent ductwork should be checked for lint
buildup and cleaned at least once per year. If
any noticeable reduction in airflow or drying
performance occurs, immediately check ductwork
for obstructions and blockages. Contact a
qualified technician or service provider.

early stage. If your dryer does not function properly or does not function at all, check the following before
you call for service.
Problem
Possible Causes
Solutions
Dryer will not
turn on
• Power cord is not properly
plugged in.
• House fuse is blown, circuit
breaker has tripped, or
power outage has occurred.
• Make sure that the plug is plugged securely into a
grounded outlet matching the dryer’s rating plate.
• Reset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do not increase
fuse capacity. If the problem is a circuit overload,
have it corrected by a qualified electrician.
Dryer does not heat
• House fuse is blown, circuit
breaker has tripped, or
power outage has occurred.
• Reset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do not
increase fuse capacity. If the problem is a
circuit overload, have it corrected by a qualified
electrician.
Greasy or dirty spots
on clothes
• Fabric softener used
incorrectly.
• Clean and dirty clothes being
dried together.
• Confirm and follow the instructions provided with
your fabric softener.
• Make sure to use your dryer to dry only clean
items, because dirty items can soil clean clothes
placed in the same or subsequent loads.
• Stains on dried clothes are actually stains that
weren’t removed during the washing process.
Make sure that clothes are being completely
cleaned according to the instructions for your
washer and detergent.
• Clean and dirty clothes being
dried together.
Display shows error
code tE1 or tE2
• Thermistor is malfunctioning.
• Turn off the dryer and call for service.
Lint on clothes
• Lint filter not cleaned
properly.
• Make sure the lint filter is cleaned before every
load. With some loads that produce high amounts
of lint, it may be necessary to clean the filter
during the cycle.
• Some fabrics are lint producers (i.e., a fuzzy white
cotton towel) and should be dried separately from
clothes that are lint trappers (i.e., a pair of black
linen pants).
• See the Excess static in clothes after drying
section below.
• Divide larger loads into smaller loads for drying.
• Check pockets thoroughly before washing and
drying clothes.
• Laundry not sorted properly.
• Excess static in clothes.
• Dryer is overloaded.
• Tissue, paper, etc., left
in pockets.
Excess static in
clothes after drying
• Fabric softener not used or
used incorrectly.
• Clothes dried too long
(overdried).
• Drying synthetics, permanent
press, or synthetic blends.
• Use a fabric softener to reduce static electricity.
Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
• Overdrying a load of laundry can cause a buildup
of static electricity. Adjust settings and use a
shorter drying time, or use SENSOR DRY cycles.
• These materials can cause static buildup. Try
using a fabric softener.

BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE (cont.)
Problem
Possible Causes
Drying time is not
consistent
• Heat settings, load size, or
dampness of clothing is not
consistent.
• The drying time for a load will vary depending on the
heat setting, the type of heat used (electric, natural,
or LP gas), the size of the load, the type of fabrics,
the wetness of the clothes, and the condition of the
exhaust ducts and lint filter.
Clothes take too
long to dry
• Load is not properly sorted.
• Separate heavy items from lightweight items. Larger
and heavier items take longer to dry.
• Heavy fabrics take longer to dry because they tend
to retain more moisture. To help reduce and maintain
more consistent drying times for large and heavy
fabrics, separate these items into smaller loads of
a consistent size.
• Use the appropriate control settings for the type of
load you are drying.
• Make sure the lint filter is cleaned before every load.
With some loads that produce high amounts of lint, it
may be necessary to clean the filter during the cycle.
• Confirm that the exhaust ductwork is properly
configured and free of debris, lint, and obstructions.
Make sure that outside wall dampers can open
properly and are not blocked, jammed, or damaged.
• Reset circuit breaker or replace fuse. Do not increase
fuse capacity. If the problem is a circuit overload, have
it corrected by a qualified electrician.
• Divide larger loads into smaller loads for drying.
• If you are drying a very small load, add a few extra
items to ensure proper tumbling action.
• Large load of heavy fabrics.
• Dryer controls are not set
properly.
• Lint filter needs to be
cleaned.
• Exhaust ducts blocked, dirty,
or duct run is too long.
• House fuse is blown, circuit
breaker has tripped, or
power outage has occurred.
• Dryer is overloaded.
• Dryer is underloaded.
Clothes are wrinkled
• Clothes dried too long
(overdried).
• Clothes left in dryer too long
after cycle ends.
• Overdrying a load of laundry can lead to wrinkled
clothes. Try a shorter drying time, and remove items
while they still retain a slight amount of moisture.
• Remove items from the dryer immediately at the end of
the cycle. Use the WRINKLE CARE option to continue
tumbling clothes at the end of the cycle, for up to 3 hours.
Clothes are shrinking • Garment care instructions
are not being followed.
• To avoid shrinkage, please carefully follow the fabric
care instructions for your garment, because some
fabrics will naturally shrink when washed. Other fabrics
can be washed but will shrink when dried in a dryer. Use
a low or no heat setting and/or the RACK DRY option.
The display shows:
• Water supply error.
• Check steam feeder drawer:

• Do not use distilled water; the water level sensor
in steam generator will not work.
• Pump not working. Unplug dryer and call for service.
• This is normal.
• This is steam condensation. The dripping water
will stop after a short time.
