What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from washer dryer for a growing family So far its a great dryer. My wife and I decided it was time for an upgrade sense our family was being upgraded as well (my wife is expecting). We went with the biggest washer and dryer LG had but we did not want WIFI or smart options. The main purpose of this washer and dryer was we needed bigger and faster. Now there is no question we can wash more cloths per load of wash but in terms of speed it is not that much faster on the regular settings. My guess is that you cant have your cake and eat it to. What I mean by that is my clothing is just a clean but I can tell that my shirts are not being pulled in a tug of war during the wash and spin cycles so the dry and washer clean just as good but don't deteriorate your very expensive clothing. Just a guess could be wrong. So if your looking for size and don't care about WIFI you can't beat the dryer and washer pair its gentee on your clothing and cleans just as good as any washer and dryer out there. Just don't think that its going to be fastest then your basic top loader.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, so far I specifically wanted the largest capacity units so it would be easy to do King bedding, towels, rugs and more. So far I'm happy with it but I honestly haven't used every setting so I hope they work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy We bought this about 3 months ago and replaced an electric dryer with this gas dryer. It was a great buy. We are saving money with each load. The dryer does the job in 1/2 the time and it has great features.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Roomy I bought this refrigerator 8 months ago but only using for 4-5 months due to remodeling of my house. The refrigerator has lot of room but does not have fancy features like led display and ice dispenser.

With this being a mega capacity dryer, do you need a larger gas supply than a standard dryer?

Asked by: XEROK1
If using a rigid pipe, the rigid pipe should be ½ - inch IPS. If acceptable under local codes and ordinances and when acceptable to your gas supplier, 3/8 - inch approved tubing may be used where lengths are less than 20 ft. (6.1 m). Larger tubing should be used for lengths in excess of 20 ft. (6.1 m). ^AC
