What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Breaks down too often Bought this in March 2014 very economical to run, looks good, easy to use and many functions. In first year had to replace pump and drive motor, now in second year flooding kitchen again so assume the pump is gone again. Since new continually says to clean filter despite auto cleaning, lint filter washed every use as per instructions. Engineer didn't even know how to take machine apart so bent casing to get at parts to be replaced. Steam function flooding floor. Fast heat choices run for 2mins at a time so not able to use. 2 year warranty runs out soon, so engineer recommended buying annual warranty as LG know the machine is unreliable!! Would prefer a new machine to replace the current one but no doubt it will be another piecemeal parts replacement. 04 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by L G - TUMBLE DRYER - MODEL NO: RC9042AQ3Z Having bought this L G Tumble Dryer, Model No: RC9042AQ3Z, back in January 2014, I have now had a little over 3 months to put it to the test so to speak! First off, this Tumble Dryer was purchased to match my other purchase from L G which was their L G - Washing Machine - Model No: F1495BDSA, and they both match perfectly stacked on a stacking kit within my laundry room. Performance wise: This Tumble Dryer is Perfect. Everything with this product seems to be just as described by L G Electronics. Great Tumble Dryer to use... Clothes are coming out dry on all the Cupboard Dry settings I choose to set. The Tumble Dryer recalculates its overall finish time as the clothes are near to their drying end. The TrueSteam programmes are great, and hygienic, especially when drying my large cotton tea-towels. Fantastic feature also includes the option to dry my clothes using the ECO Hybrid features - ECO option uses Heatpump technology - The Speed option uses the addition of a heater, should I need items of clothing dried in less time, especially if I need to wear certain clothes quickly after washing them. The Heatpump ECO mode saves me the most money on electric bills too! A great machine overall, I'm glad I did my research on this L G Tumble Dryer and the matching L G Washing Machine - Both machines have been a great purchase. The L G Customer Services team have been fantastic in promptly replacing the water tank drawer as soon as it could be shipped to me. This was due to the drawer being damaged during shipping of the machine, which admittedly had travelled a very long way before arrival in the UK. 5 Star satisfaction, Thank you. 01 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best buy Having owned a LG Tumble Dryer before I wanted to stay with the same make and I have not been disappointed as this model outshines previous, the clothes are drying far quicker and at a lower temperature so very pleased with purchase 11 January 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Looks good but faulty within 6 months Avoid - bought this item thinking we would see a much improved item replacement of our old drier that cost less the 1/4 of the price of this item, how wrong. Had this less then 6 months (6 very hot summer months so item has barley been used) already faulty, continues self clean and then stops. The self diagnostic that is sold as a great way of identifiying where the fault occurs isn't available at lg's end and apparently hasn't been for some time. LG only offer all day appointments for repair so expect customer to take a day off and wait around for engineer to review and then they will order part, further wait and then another all day appointment/day off work to fit. Think LG seems to have forgotten service when it comes to customer - very poor 07 October 2013
