Rated 1 out of 5 by from So now it is discontinued better than a recall This dryer is terrible. This machine doesn't need a lint catcher, nothing comes off of the clothes. It doesn't get hot enough to take wrinkles out of your clothes and takes forever to dry. Now the lint catcher doesn't stay put and ruined almost $200 worth of clothes in 2 loads. The catcher catches the clothes and twists them till they tear. Why is this happening now? I have never owned such a poor dryer. I only use the speed dry as it is the hottest setting. We were going to keep our set and sell the house without them but now good luck to the new owners. I will never buy a LG again. DLE2140W

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Clearly we got the bum product! I can't help but notice that EVERYONE else loves their dryer! I'm glad! However, I hate it. It takes a minimum of 3 hours to dry even a small load of laundry. We had a service man out to test it and he assured us it was working properly, but it still takes 3-5 hours per load to dry. I can't imagine how this is ever considered Energy efficient!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy This dryer does all thats asked of it and more. Easy to keep clean. Does a great job with large items like blankets and sheets. Very quiet which is very nice. One of the best features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stacking Dryer on top of Washing Machine Since purchasing both the LG Washer and Dryer there has been a storage issue. So I decided to stack the dryer on top of the washing machine. That solved the storage issue! However picking up the wet laundry and lifting it into the now above dryer there is an issue!! So what I did was cut a plywood sheet so that it slides in-between the space of the bottom of the dryer and the washing machine. I can slide this piece of plywood out, creating a shelf to where I can lift the wet laundry that is in a laundry basket onto this shelf. I then can throw in the wet laundry into the dryer. When clothes are dried, pull out the plywood shelf, put the laundry basket on the shelf and remove dry laundry into laundry basket. Does your company have such an attachment and if not would you consider using my idea? I have pictures of this current idea should it spark your interest. Regards, David

Rated 4 out of 5 by from worth getting Just bought it, no problems so far. Dries much faster than our old dryer. Easy to use, just not as energy efficient as I would have liked
