What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this dryer in 2012 and I have 3 kids. We do laundry every day and large loads. I've never had a single problem with this unit. It has been amazing. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor I've had this for 4 yr and it's been nothing but a pain. I like saving water but the clothes should be in the water! I would not buy another washer like this again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I feel like I bought a Lemon Only 1 and a half years after purchasing, this dryer stopped heating! After many attempts to find out the problem, finally determined that it was the thermostat so we replaced it. also, the "smart diagnostics" was not helpful and couldn't figure out what was wrong so they just said it wasn't venting, which it, then it worked great for 9 more months and did the same thing and replaced the thermostat and it was great. Now, 3 weeks later its at it again and I am over it and am never purchasing another LG product again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product at a great price! I purchased this dryer about 2-1/2 years ago. Since installing it, the dyer has worked like a charm. Just like the washer that goes along with this dryer, it has a pleasant, light musical sound signalling the end of the dryer cycle instead of the loud and obnoxious buzzing sound most dyers have. The only drawback to the dryer is the fact the top slopes or slants towards the front. This means that when using both the washer and dryer, it is difficult to set items on top of the dryers (not that we probably should be anyway). Other than this, the dryer is a great product at a great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Electric Dryer! We've owned this dryer (and its accompanying washer) for almost three years now. It works perfectly and drys the clothes to perfection. And it even plays you a little tune to let you know it's done drying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from High Maintenance Dryer - Sensor has gone bad twice This dryer worked very good for 1 year, then the heating sensor went out. That was replaced after 1.2 years and now 3 months later the sensor needs replaced again? We have to clean the filter and sensors to keep the dryer working just a little to limp by. Not sure why this dryer is so sensitive, but I usually purchase washer and dryers every 10 to 15 years. Never an LG again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BAD PRODCUT Bought the washer and dyer at the same time. After about 10 months Washer leaked and about after 1 yr 2 months dryer will not turn off. I have to unplug the dyer. I will be hesitant before purchasing any LG product.
