What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many useful featues This dryer is gentle on all kinds of articles of clothing and has so many customizable and preset features so that I can really control the dry time, temp control, etc. Even comes with an anti-bacterial setting! I like the sound alerts it makes as well. Very pleasant to use and dries clothes well without harming. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done! Love the capacity and sensors, so you only dry for as long as the clothes are wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer! I have owned this dryer for almost 1 year and I am totally satisfied with the machine. It's everything a dryer should be: efficient, large capacity, quiet, gets clothes dry quickly. Laundry isn't quite the chore it used to be thanks to the LG!
