You can open it to the right or switch it and open it to the left...depending which side your washer is on to make it easier to transfer clothes. It doesn't not fold down..just left or right.

During installion you can decide what direction is best for your door to open. I bet you can move the hinges on the door to either side as it suits your needs.

I purchased this dryer 6 weeks ago and I also tried to open it by pulling it down the first couple of times. It is a little deceiving but mine does open to the right and if you want to you can reverse it to open to the left. It really is a great dryer!

Yes, it does open to the side... and reversible means that you can change the hinges - so if needed, the door can open to the other side :)

The Sales Representative was correct. We do not recommend the use of dryer sheets in our washing machines as the fibers being pulled off the sheets can form a layer on the moisture sensors and not allow proper operation of the unit. If fabric softener is needed, we recommend using a liquid fabric softener in the appropriate compartment in the LG washing machine.

alternative venting / DLE1101W manual

I need to see installation diagrams for dryer DLE1101W, especially for side and bottom alternatives for vent. There is no information on your website and the manual and instructions are not listed in the "manuals" section. I would also like to know recommended clearances for space between washer + dryer. Thank you for your help.

I used a periscope style vent from the dryer's center bottom outlet to my house vent line off to the end of the dryer. It required about 2.5 inches of space to the rear of the dryer. Air flow is very good with this arrangement.

On the washer side of the dryer I have a half inch of clearance between them - no problems.

I have had this happen also...and I just took it out again and then put it back and the filter light went out. Someone told me that if you use fabric sheets in your dryer....you should wash the filter with soap and water once a month...because the softener in the sheets gets built up on the filter.I make sure it's dry before putting back in dryer.

On your website pages for washer WT1101CW and dryer DLE1101W there are links to the User Manual for these appliances. However, these links simply re-display the Support pages for them; the links do not "point" to PDF files.

Question

Why do a get an error message that the vent is blocked? My house is new construction and there is no way the vent can be blocked.

DLE1101W is my model number. The dryer was working perfectly for 2 months. Now I continue to get an error message that the vent is blocked. It is not blocked. Is this an issue with other customers? what can I do to fix this. The dryer runs for 10 minutes and then shuts off with the error message.

We had this message when we hooked up the machine. Our ducts were quite clogged with lint. As soon as we cleared it the machine was all good. Is is possible that the new construction wasn't done properly? We did find an issue with our duct installation when we went to clean it out.

We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dryer. Check to ensure the lint filter is clear. Check the exhaust duct. If these are both clear, then there may be something further in the house ductwork. If this is not the case, then they dryer may require service.
