What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washing Machine w/ Nice Extras This mashing Machine has turned out to have been a great purchase and worth all the purchase price/monies we invested in it and the dryer. The washer is very water and energy efficient that it help lower both our water and electric bills each month, so in the long run it is paying for itself over our old washing machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works Because I prefer Gas Dryers my choices were limited. I liked the looks and features of this dryer and also know that LG is a decent brand that can be trusted. I especially like the easyload door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer We bought this dryer a few weeks ago. It has a lot of bells and whistles, but it’s quite easy to operate. It works great and I love the window in the door!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dishwasher ! It's a handsome washer, very quite. Goes great with the other LG appliances I have replaced this year. The stainless steel both inside and out look great. Unit runs quite and no handles that stick out that hit your hips everytime you walk by it. Great buy and for the price, you can't beat it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I wanted in a Dryer, Dryer Our previous dryer had given up. It was time to get a new dryer. We have heard about LG from friends and went to investigate. We saw one at Grand Appliance and was very much impressed. The controls were easy to understand and easy to use. It was large enough for our needs. It drys our clothing quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Dryer has all the features and is quiet. I have had this for a few weeks now and I am a big LG fan. I work in insurance and risk management and have personally seen how LG stands behind their products. These are serious people and they make GREAT appliances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge! Glad we purchased the large capacity dryer. Didn't realize I was missing out with the smaller ones. Haven't quite mastered all the options and settings yet, but there are plenty!

Why isn't this model in pc richards or sears or home Depot in Ny. It can only be purchased online-how old is this product? I like it very much.

Asked by: roseann
Home Depot carries it, as does PC Richard, but not every store keeps it on site. I couldn't find it at Sears (checked online). Lowe's also carries it. I ordered this exact model on Saturday, but from Lowe's (I had a 10% off coupon). They have it shipped from the warehouse to the store nearest to where I live, then arrange for delivery and installation, which should take place in about a week. I did order my LG washer from Home Depot, and it was delivered within a couple of days. I guess they keep some items in-store and others off-site. I don't know how old this model is. What I liked about it was the stainless steel drum.
