What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Dryer This unit has been an outstanding Dryer and has made laundry chore easy to take care of. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Dryer I bought this dryer over a month ago and love it. It is very easy to use and allows the user to change settings very easy. The controls give you several options and I like the More Dry feature along with the Steam. I would strongly recommended this dryer to my family and friends. Between my LG TV and my LG Dryer I might become an LG fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gas Dryer This dryer surpassed our expectations. It has been easy to use and was easy to set up. We only wish our LG inverter direct-drive motor drum washer could have offered the same experience. It was a disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features This is a great dryer. Going to an LG was an upgrade for us and our first purchase. After using other dryers we were very impressed that we cut our drying time in half. All of the settings and features are helpful for our delicates to our durable wear clothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Happy Spouse! This was a Christmas surprise and upgrade to match our LG Washer, which we love too. My spouse was so excited and loves this new gas dryer. She says it drys so much faster than the old model and holds more as well. She loves the Steam option and the rack to let shoes dry. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best dryer I've ever owned!!! Bought this dryer because of the features. I have a large family (10). This dryer is a God send. We do a lot of laundry a week. The dryer drys extra large loads of clothes in 45 to 50 mintues. I have used every feature, it's great. I steaned my sons heavy winter jacket, it came out like new, smelled wonderful. I steamed my grandchildrens stuffed animals and again came out clean and fresh. This dryer does everything it claims to and more. I save time and money not having to redry clothes. Steam features saves time and money not having to take things to the dry cleaners. Wonderful product! !! Will only by LG from now on.
