      Nice upgrade

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      Bought the LG washer and dryer to replace our 5 yr. old whirlpools that were having issues with dryer fires, and not being able to clean mildly dirty jeans, what a difference in performance and quality. LG also has the least call for repair, based on independent study's, Just compare side by side and you can see the difference in quality, little things like lint trap screens,how much better they fit with closer tolerance, better design, doesn't allow lint to bypass trap and just gather anywhere inside dryer, in places you can't reach to clean out without totally dismantling, like in the burner chute which creates those fire hazards. Simple things like dryer door latches and hinges, no comparison, whirlpool still uses 75 yr old latches like on old kitchen cupboards used to have. Even the leveling feet are better. Just to name a few . The stainless steel drums are fantastic, along with the touchpads. Use to take 2 hours to dry towels even with sensor dry, now 55 min. Glad we didn't wait to upgrade, you know happy wife ,happy life.

      Did tons of research and love this dryer (+washer)

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      We needed to replace our moldy, battering front-loading LG washer and inadequate dryer that came with our house. I checked everywhere for reviews -- Consumer Reports first and foremost, and lots of sites like Best Buy and other user reviews. Consumer reports was the most important to me because they actually buy and test the machine over the long haul. I visited stores and hemmed and hawed among the top Samsung and LG options. In the end, we chose this dryer and its washer pair, and absolutely love both. The dryer does everything it's supposed to do, without being bloated and weird looking. Our clothes are dryer, the machine is much quieter than its predecessor, and the capacity is huge. We washed and dried all of our bedding in the first weekend, lol. I highly recommend this machine and the matching washer.

      Leaves a Little to be Desired

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      This dryer has all the bells and whistles one might need, plus it has a huge capacity. The problem is, it often leaves the clothing damp at the end of a cycle. Even though there is a setting to increase the drying time, it is only available for certain drying modes. The delicate cycle, which I use frequently, does not allow you to increase drying time so you have to wait until it finishes the whole cycle to find out if you need to run it through another short cycle, When I called LG technical support, they gave me a couple of complicated "work arounds". This is very annoying especially when you consider the price for this high end dryer! Very disappointing.

      Regret this purchase


      I have 2 complaints with this unit. 1) we were told in the store and it is stated on line that it's possible to do a side vent for this unit. There's even a place where the metal is designed to pop out so it can be vented on the right. However, the gas line is routed directly through that space, so it's not actually possible. We didn't discover this until after the 15 day return period so it's too late to return it. 2) the automatic sensor dry option doesn't fully dry the laundry and you have to add more time after the cycle is done. My 10 year old dryer worked better, but sadly I have already given it away.

      I am in love

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      Very large capacity. I love how I have the option to open the door two different ways. In the store, I didn't see the benefit, but at home, it is a wonderful feature. Now I can wash and dry my largest comforters with ease and I can wash so much more without stuffing or overloading the washer. Please read the instructions because there are a lot more controls and can be confusing until you read. If fingerprints drive you crazy, get prepared to go coocoo because the materials aren't smudge resistant. Overall, great product and I am happy.

      Really Like the Dryer, but there are some annoying

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      First let me say, I really like this dryer, but there are some pretty annoying things about it. First and foremost is that I tend to get errors on days when the temperature is below zero. This is in part due to the short exhaust run and the cold air coming into the dryer causing issues with all the steam settings (it seems most drying settings are steam settings on this model). Second, I believe due to the steam settings we have to add extra cycles to fully dry our clothes. While this is a pain, it's not the end of the world. Loading and such are super easy and overall I still like this dryer.

      Beautiful with white elephant buttons


      My few disappointments - I do not know if it is only this piece or all the new dryers are like this- Moisture sensor does not work. Steam cycle only drips water into the dryer and wets the clothes. All the cycles in the left of selector are supposed to be moisture sensor and steam, but this is false. Cannot select the anti static button. On a lighter note it saves energy - To save energy, dryer is quick to turn off its led drum light which is hardly 4w. If run for whole year it may consume energy of hardly 1 cent. LG is quick to save a cent for us.

      Very Good, But Not Perfect

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      We actually own three of this dryer. #1 is great; #2 has issues LG Factory Service can't fix; #3 (this one from Best Buy, purchased to replace #2) yields an error at the end of some cycles. It'll run the clothes seemingly ok, but flashes an error at the end of only SOME cycles. Weird. In general, as others have noted, this model doesn't always dry clothes fully and they need to be run additional time. We also bought (elsewhere) the matching washer and I can't say enough good things about it; it's wonderful. But I'm not sure why we've got two of this model of dryer that are acting up. Hmmmm.
