Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good after 2 months. Had it for 2 months now and been using it about 3 times a week. So far no issues, except the filter is a little bit difdicult and messy to remove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually works So I had some very nice blouses that ended up with stains on them and I was so disappointed. Before I threw them out I decided to try the steam cycle. Keep i mind they had been washed in my old washer several time. Well, every stain washed out on the first try. I'm very happy with this purchase. I have noticed a difference in all clothes. Wish I would've bought it sooner!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Dryer This is a great gas dryer. Compared to our previous dryer, this one easily out shines it. Dry times are much less and I hope my electric bill will now be much less as well.

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 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer. Clothes get dry really fast We bought this a couple of months back. It is a great dryer. For towels, we used to run our old dryer for close to 160 min. But the LG dryer does the job in about 50 min. It is not very loud and we also love the various settings and options available for different types of clothes. Overall, we are very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it so far. I purchased one month ago and said far everything works great. Fast drying time and so many options that I have not yet used. Holds a large amount of clothes with no problems. Still learning all the features but easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent Dryer that has all the features! We bought this dryer along with the matching washing machine for our new home after having great experiences with previous LG laundry equipment. This dryer has it all -- great capacity, really easy to use touchscreen menu, ton's of features and drying cycles/options. We are very pleased with the dryer's performance and low natural gas utilization. A great buy and would recommend highly. We bought our machines, including the drawer bases from Costco and were pleased with their service and delivery as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of using My wife is so please with the way this machine works. So far there has been no problems. Just to be on the safe side thought we purchased an extended warranty on this product, but I doubt will ever have to use it.

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
