property damage, injury to persons, or death.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLATION
wWarning
To reduce the risk of injury to persons, follow all industry recommended safety procedures including the use of long sleeved gloves and
safety glasses. Failure to follow all of the safety warnings in this manual could result in property damage, injury to persons, or death.
Exhaust/Ducting:
• Gas dryers MUST be exhausted to the outside. Failure to follow
these instructions can result in fire or death.
• The dryer exhaust system must be exhausted to the outside of
the dwelling. If the dryer is 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-inch 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 otherwise restricted in use or during 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 backdraft when the dryer is
not in use. Failure to follow these instructions can result in fire or
death.
• The exhaust duct must be 4 inches (10.2 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 UL-listed 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.

will reattempt gas ignition after approximately two minutes.
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 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 inches
(1.5 cm). The dryer should be checked while the dryer is running
with no load.
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.

Problem
Possible Causes
Solutions
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.
• 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.
• S eparate heavy items from lightweight items. Larger and heavier items take
longer to dry.
•H
eavy 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.
•M
ake sure the lint filter is cleaned before every load.
With some loads that produce high amounts of lint, it may be necessary to

USING SMARTDIAGNOSISTM
NOTE
- Only use this feature when instructed to do so by the call center. The transmission sounds similar to a fax machine, and so has no
meaning except to the call center.
- SMARTDIAGNOSIS™ cannot be activated if the dryer does not power up. If this happens, then troubleshooting must be done without
SMARTDIAGNOSIS™.
- SMARTDIAGNOSISTM is a troubleshooting feature designed to assist, not replace, the traditional method of troubleshooting through
service calls. The effectiveness of this feature depends upon various factors, including, but not limited to, the reception of the
cellular phone being used for transmission, any external noise that may be present during the transmission, and the acoustics of the
room where the machine is located. Accordingly, LG does not guarantee that SMARTDIAGNOSISTM would accurately troubleshoot
any given issue.
If you experience problems with your dryer, call the Customer information center on the toll free number 800-244-2929. Follow the call
center agent’s instructions, and perform the requested steps:
1. Press
to turn on the dryer.
Do not press any other buttons or turn the cycle selector knob.
2. When instructed to do so by the call center, place the mouthpiece of your phone very close to the POWER button.
3. Press and hold
for three seconds, while holding the phone mouthpiece to the icon or POWER button.
4. Keep the phone in place until the tone transmission has finished. This takes about 17 seconds, and the display will count down the
time.
• For best results, do not move the phone while the tones are being transmitted.
• If the call center agent is not able to get an accurate recording of the data, you may be asked to try again.
• Pressing the POWER button during the transmission will shut off the SMARTDIAGNOSIS™.
5. Once the countdown is over and the tones have stopped, resume your conversation with the call center agent, who will then be able
to assist you using the information transmitted for analysis at the call center.
