What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Constantly malfunctions I will start off by saying that when this dryer works, it works fabulously! However... The thermostat burned out once. We discovered this when it stopped heating one day. We phoned in the warranty, and they sent out a local certified technician to investigate. Turned out to be a burned out thermostat, so they ordered the part, replaced it, great! burned out 3 more times. It was only under warranty the first time. We did everything required to prevent this from happening. We have had to pay for each replacement. Now, the dryer has stopped heating now for an entirely new reason. I have yet to phone the repairman; I am growing tired of it. I will soon be replacing this dryer and will never buy another LG product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love all the options After getting my washing and loving it with all the different options and clue card to help me with the newer features. I couldn't wait to get the dryer. my sweats dry in 50 min or less. saving me time, and cost on electricity. This was the best deal for me. I can still put them on drawers or put on top of my washer one day. For the price you can not beat it if you are looking for a dryer with a few new features

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME!!! With two children I am always washing clothes. My husband came home with the duo and I couldn't be happier. Very easy to use. I am very satisfied with the quality and effeciency for the LG brand and would definetly recommend to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Front Loader This dryer did pretty well for my expectations of a front loader. The sensor to automatically calculate drying time always seems to leave the heavy clothes a bit damp, so I ended up using the manual drying function to compensate. Over all, it's worth the conversion from the old machines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dries really fast Love my dryer. It dries fast and handles really large loads. Glad I went with LG and happy that I had them stacked. Lots of room in my laundry closet now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Our dryer has several options and it's not complicated to use. I like the sensor dry so clothes don't need a lot of ironing. I really like the little tune the dryer plays when clothes are done. (It could be a little louder though). Over all we love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really really like it! My dryer died & I went looking at something simple & reasonably priced. I was not intending to purchase this type pf dryer. When I started looking, I kept coming back to this model. It is easy to use, works great & the value was fair. I have used this dryer consistently over the past 6 months & never a problem, unlike my last dryer. It's quiet, efficient & does a great job on the items I dry in the dryer. I love it! When it's time to replace my washer, I will come back to LG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dryer I ever owned I owned a cheaper NON LG dryer that had sensor dry, it kicked the bucket just after 2 years. What I really needed was a dependable machine that can dry a king size comforter. It took me a bit to figure out what worked best for me - the sensor dry or the manual settings. The winner is the sensor dry settings (dries more thoroughly and faster), plus you can customize the level of dryness. It is worth the money! I am so completely satisfied with this dryer, I just bought an LG steam washer. Just recently, my 15 yr washing machine finally broke. I can't wait for it to show up!
