Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 96 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product has great features I love all the features of this product. It I definitely state of the art. I would recommend this product to anyone. August 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far, love it! This dryer does a great job. My clothes are always dry, but never do I feel like they have been "scorched". I haven't tried the steam setting yet, but that seems like a neat feature. August 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product The LG Dryer is an excellent product and one of the quietest dryers we have ever owned. The quality shows in the design, durability, and features. August 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love my new dryer. It handles small and big jobs equally well. Love the steam to refresh or sanitize- especially with cats and dogs. My only small quibble would be to have more options to set up a dry session ,ore like I want. I have added and adjusted with what I can after reading all the manuals. But I would really like at least one that was start from scratch. Thanks August 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Early Review We bought this model from Sears at a good price. The dryer is working very well for our needs. It is easy to use. We liked the features and style of the dryer and after a month we still do. July 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Dryer We are so impressed with the LG Dryer that we just recently purchased. We love the great features and the use of Steam to clean. We like the Steam only cycle to clean soft cloth toys. This is a very smart machine and is fun to program and use. We like how it plays a nice melody to let you know when it is done. July 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super capacity, Simple to Use! This is a great washer. Both it and the matching dryer have a cheerful alert sound soooo much better than the horrible loud ding of the cheap washers I've dealt with before as a renter. This was a splurge purchase for my first house. July 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Outstanding machine We love our LG dryer. We purchased the matching washer as well. They are so easy to use and very quiet. So many features and options. The units get the clothes very clean and the dryer is awesome. The steam feature works wonders on wrinkles. Thank you LG for such a great product July 11, 2015

Answer: 
I was never informed about not putting dryer sheets in....and I have been doing it since the the first load. Nothing different has happened.....so I am still going to use them. Not sure why the sales rep told them that. I would like to know myself. Seems a little odd to me!

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. It is not recommended to use any form of fabric softener in this dryer. A fabric softener should be added to the appropriate dispenser cup in the LG WASHING MACHINE, according to the product operational directions.

Squeaking Noise

My less that 1 week old dryer sometimes makes a squeaking noise as it's drying. It's not 100% of the time, but normally happening at some point each drying cycle. Is this something that will go away over time or does it need to be looked at?

Answer: 
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. There are a few different locations that could produce a squeaking noise: rollers, motor, belt. It is difficult to determine which would be the source of the problem without an inspection of the product. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....
