Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dries well Purchased a fees months ago. Spacious, dries well, pleasant end of cycle melody. I do think that the sound of the igniter is loud and also items like jeans can be heard across the house (not near as quiet as other dryers we have had)

Does this dryer have dual sensors to insure the clothes are dried during the first cycle. Where are the sensors 1 in front and 1 in back? Reading comments clothes are not drying during first cycle and understand there is supposed to be dual sensors.

Asked by: MSPMN
Both of the sensors are located in the front of the dryer. The following link will provide information regarding the sensor dry feature on our units. http://www.lg.com/us/support/product-help/CT10000011-1432223739634-not-drying-long-dry-time
