  The LG DLEX3470W is a large-capacity electric dryer with a variety of options and features; it should handle the clothes-washing needs of an average household . A moisture sensor turns off the machine when the clothes are dry; a drying rack keeps sneakers and other objects from tumbling while drying; and the steam-fresh cycle refreshes (without washing) up to five garments at a time. (Using steam requires filling an interior container with water.)
