Rated 5 out of 5 by SwissKnick Quiet operation. Dry clothes. No vent required.
While the drying time seems long, the clothes come out dry and fresh. The fact that it did not need a vent and stacks nicely on the washer saved room. So far it has performed as I would expect. Reminds me of my European laundry equipment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Matt 3 months and 2 dryers + 2 service calls
We bought this dryer about 3 months ago and the electronics on it broke about 2 weeks after it arrived. All the lights on the front panel flashed like crazy for a few minutes one day and then nothing, kaput. Our retailer was nice enough to agree to an exchange and a new unit was sent out. About 5 minutes after that one was delivered the front panel started flashing like crazy again and the, yup you guessed it, it wouldn't start at all.
This time we had an LG tech out to make sure the retailer had installed it correctly and the home electrics were up to snuff. He visits (nice guy BTW) and verifies that the unit was installed correctly and that there are no issues with the power in the house. He also open it up and says he noticed that the connection between the power supply and the main electronic board appeared loose. He reseated that connection and voila the unit started working again. Cool. We're happy.
Now it's 3 weeks later and the front panel has started flashing wildly again. However this time things are slightly different - it doesn't die completely, just goes crazy from about 20 minutes into it's dry cycle - all the while the drying is happening as if the things brain wasn't in the middle of a seizure. After the cycle is done the unit won't start up - it twitches and fumbles through it's startup chime and *normal* light show, but is never quite able to get all the way there. So for the next hour we can't dry another load. After the unit has had time to find it's bearings everything is back to normal before the next load when the same thing happens again.
LG tech is coming out today - they're good about that. But you'll understand if we don't have much confidence that the unit will last much past the 12 month warranty.
Oh ya - it seems pretty good when it is drying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Joeinbostonma Good dryer except for bulky items
Overall, this dryer is great for small spaces. The ventless feature is nice if that is a requirement. My last dryer had a vent, so now I have to get the vent duct capped off, so if that's your situation, I'm not sure the ventless is an advantage. The clothes usually come out feeling damp dry, but I think it's almost like steam, and in truth it's dry. My one major complaint is that when drying bulky items (even using bulky items setting#, the bulky item almost always becomes a virtual cannonball inside the dryer as it wraps into a tight coil. Then it starts to pound inside the dryer as it rolls around, and you have to go unwind it #over and over again). The dryer does sometimes change direction, but it doesn't do this long enough to unwind the bulky item, and that's too bad, bc it certainly seems like alternating direction of the basket would solve this issue but alas it is not alternating long enough or frequently enough. Sheets, blankets, etc, all become heavy cannonballs. My only other slight grievance is that the lint for whatever reason comes out especially fine, almost like dust, so it's hard to catch it all with a swipe of your fingers and there is fine lint in the trap left over and going down into the dryer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lakeview Happy with it even though it wasn't what I wanted
This non-vented (European style) apartment size dryer was not really what I wanted, because I knew that the drying times would be longer than with a conventional vented dryer. This turned out to be true but not so much as I had expected. The noise level is not as impressive for its quiet as that of the companion washer, but it is acceptable. There is the nice feature of a flat drying rack that is easily removed for tumble drying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1173 great companion to LG 2.3 Cu. Ft. 9-Cycle Washer
This machine performs very well, but be aware that it is a ductless unit that passes water-filled air through a condenser and from there the extracted water flows into a built-in tank that must be manually emptied. HOWEVER, if you are fortunate enough to have a drain conveniently located, the water can be emptied directly into the drain, bypassing the tank. This machine does NOT require a separately-purchased stacking unit. The ONLY accessory needed for successful installation is the power cord. Since the machine is engineered to operate without an air duct, it is especially appropriate for installation in small apartments or condos that lack regular laundry hook-ups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mevijo Wonderful dryer!
We have had the dryer for just over a month - but it has been used every day, sometimes three times a day.
I am delighted with it in almost every way. The best thing is that it is ventless, so that there is no hot air being blown outside the house, or fluff escaping from scrunched extractor hoses. In fact it keeps the house quite warm, which on these cold days is good. It works perfectly draining the condensation down the pipe along with the washing machine water.
I also (silly though it may seem) LOVE the tune it plays when it is finished. It is very cheerful and a huge improvement on the terrible beep that is usual (and that one usually turns off.)
The one bad thing is that large sheets and duvet covers get rolled into a tangle - and that is really very bad. But otherwise it dries perfectly and efficiently and I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WillieSydney Great Washer Albeit Pricey
I had to buy a small washer and dryer due to doorway width restrictions in the 1937 built home. I am very pleased with this 24 inch model, although it was a little bit pricey. I understand why the smaller units are more expensive than the standard sizes, as fewer people need the smaller units, so it is simple supply and demand.
