What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best ever must buy I did very extensive reserach on washers and dryers, this is the first time I rate a product excellent with out a doubt in my mind. Didn't want to pay too much and I didn't want to get something cheap either. The only additonal thing I could have gotten from a more expensive machine is a touch screen which I am 100% fine with out, nothing more I could ask for. The capacity is great, it's truly Enery Efficient, the machine turns off once the clothes are dry even if there is time left and the Wrinkle free feature is awesome. Not to mention you get $100 rebate from Pepco. June 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does a great job and super quiet! Really enjoying this do far, had a front load washer and dryer and just didn't care for it , it also was noisey and shook the whole house. This holds mega loads of laundry including super sized king bed spreads, no more trips to the laundry. It also doesn't hold moldy smells as you can keep the lid open on the washer, we love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Love this dryer! Love this dryer. My inky issue is that I have a 5.0 cu ft washer that easily fits my king size quilt. But the dryer doesn't quite have enough room for drying on only one cycle. Otherwise I have no issues. March 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Overall Very Good This machine does a very nice job. Compared to our old Frigidaire dryer, this LG does the job nicely. I cannot believe how much lint is in the filter after each load. The drying sensor works very well. If you select very dry, when it is finished, the clothes are very dry. We had to restart the old dryer at least once more to finish a drying cycle correctly. The only annoyance is that the timer shows a time, and when you come back later, it is well past the previous estimate, and is sometimes showing a longer time remaining than it did before. However, as I said, when the machine says it has completed the job, it has done so as prescribed. Very satisfied. I have not used the steam function as of yet, so I cannot comment on that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent dryer and huge Along with the steam option, the technology of this dryer is excellent.. This dryer has performance and style and very easy to use. This dryer is so deep that I can dry large quantities of materials and they dry with short cycles. The dryer is so quite. Overall, I like this machine and loves how it made my wash room look.
