Front Control Design

LG puts a modern spin on the traditional top load design. By moving the control panel from the back to the front, the buttons and LED display are easier to read and use. This simple change makes for a more intuitive and functional design and a look that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the door. Love the design of the door on this dryer. Makes it so much easier to load the clothes from the washer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So So We purchased this Dryer as the companion partner to its LG HE top load washer WT1801HVA which I did not favourably review. LG packages its products well and look great, this one is no exception. The Easy Load Door is a nice feature. However, the Dry Cycles are analytically rigid, overly complicated, why? We discovered the "Normal" Cycle drops the dryer temperature to warm or less and clothes will not be properly dried so we have learned that we have to place it on Manual and set the time accordingly - How Automatic is that? Our previous HE Washer and Dryer were LG Front Loaders and bullet proof. We purchased this Dryer and its companion Washer due to the layout of our laundry room but we are now sorry we didn't move our 8 year old LG HE Washer & Dryer with us. This Dryer looks nice but not worth the extra money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient This product has practical and convenient features. I like the easy load feature wherein you can open the door from the top or from the side. The custom programmability using NFC is also a cool feature. So far so good except minor problem with the door as I had initial issues when switching from top opening to side opening. I called in and was advised to put some oil on the hinges although I figured it could be the spring on the door release mechanism.
