My dryer crapped out and I decided on an LG DLE6100W Electric Dryer
It is in a detached garage but the dryer is about 12 feet away from my bedroom.
It's not a Smart Appliance, the wi-fi is only used when there is a problem and it needs to be diagnosed using an app on a smart phone.
I emailed the company to make sure the wi-fi isn't on all the time, hopefully it won't be an issue
Money is tight otherwise I'd go with Speedqueen.
Here is what LG said to my email:
Regarding your concern about the Wi-Fi feature on your dryer, I completely understand your sensitivity to Wi-Fi emissions. I want to provide you with the most accurate information possible.
Upon reviewing the specifications of your dryer model, I regret to inform you that there is no option to turn off the Wi-Fi functionality. The purpose of this Wi-Fi feature is primarily for smart diagnosis and the convenience of remotely monitoring and controlling your dryer through the ThinQ App.
However, rest assured that if you choose not to use the Wi-Fi feature or if you decide not to connect it to the ThinQ App, it will not emit any Wi-Fi signals. The Wi-Fi function only activates when it is linked to the ThinQ App on your smartphone or other compatible devices.
We understand the importance of accommodating our customers' needs and preferences. If you do not wish to utilize the Wi-Fi capability, you can simply choose not to set up the connection, and your dryer will operate independently without emitting any Wi-Fi signals.
If you ever decide to explore the smart diagnosis feature and choose to connect your dryer to the ThinQ App, you can be assured that we value the security and privacy of our customers. The ThinQ App follows stringent security protocols to safeguard your personal information and data.
