What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No good for drying large sheets/duvet covers When it comes to drying a large sheet or duvet cover this is the worse dryer I have ever owned. You constantly have to keep taking the sheet out of the dryer and unravel it as it ends up in a ball and wet in the middle. Consequently the drying time is longer. It is a good dryer for all other items though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Size For Family Adjustable cycles. Can make favourite programme. Some cycles seem quite long but adjust through drying cycle. Easily reached water tank for emptying. Easy clean lint tray. Light in drum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality priduct Very impressed by the LG dryer. Has lots of features that will take time to understand and use to get best out of the machine. Does include ability to override set features and go for a timed program. The interior light is a useful feature. The ability to plumb in to drain is a good feature. Looking forward to many years of use. I would have preferred a 5 year warranty included in price but it is an option which I have opted for though I would expect the dryer to give far more tha 5 years good service. Compared to the Hotpoint I replaced this machine is in a different league.
