    LG DLE1501 Dryer - love it!

    I researched several dryer manufacturers, models and reviews over the past months and chose this model based on my research. I've had it almost two weeks and have done multiple loads of laundry with this and my new LG Washer (bought the 1501 model washer also). My previous dryer was 16+ years old and the interior exhaust vent screen was causing pulls and rips in my towels due to metal fatigue (replacement part not available any longer). I've never had a dryer with an internal light so that was a bonus for me. The various cycle settings have worked perfectly and I've used just about every one of them so far. Quiet operation in my cement floor/cement block unfinished basement even when I'm down there! Dryer & Washer were on sale and because I'd found even a lower price on the dryer on the web, my Best Buy Salesperson (Roy) went ahead & found a lower price comparison on the washer for me also which is always a plus!!! Take the time and read the manual to get the best use of this appliance for your various drying needs. The Clean Filter Reminder light is a nice touch when you turn the dryer on, just in case you don't clean your filter after each drying cycle has completed.

    Too soon to tell

    Gave it a 3 since I'm disappointed so far. Kept stopping every ten minutes for the first few loads indicating the vent system was plugged which it wasn't since everything was new. I think someone else had this machine(yuck) since there was bright turquoise lint in the filter when I cleaned it after my first load of clothes that were light colored. You cannot change any of the preset options on the sensor modes such as heat and time and the timer keeps adding time so it's impossible to plan when laundry will be dry. My dryer is in the basement and I wish the signal on high could actually be heard but it's very quiet even when I'm beside it. I'm guessing I will be using the timed drying where I can choose the temp and time and know when the cycle will be completed and won't have to make so many wasted trips to the basement. Also I don't think the wrinkle guard is very effective since there's too much time between tumbling and it tumbles for such a short time. Wish I could have found a more basic less expensive dryer that had a drum at least as big as this one. These new machines have too many gimmicks that aren't necessary or useful and just drive up the price. Hope I change my mind after using it more but not happy with it yet.

    Working great, minor gripes

    Simple machine, working fine so far, just under 2 months in. Very quiet, good selection of cycles. Minor gripes (which were known before purchasing, to be fair): (1) Curved top - who doesn't use the top of their dryer as a work surface for laundry? Curved top is an unnecessary aesthetic design choice, and arguably inconvenient. Probably done to match the curved top of the associated washer. (2) Side-hinged door instead of bottom-hinged - certainly not a deal-breaker, but bottom-hinged doors just make more sense for transferring laundry in and out of the machine. Side-note, the door is reversible so can be set to open in either direction by swapping the hinges and latch. (3) The description on the Best Buy site, under features, says no moisture sensor, but the machine does have a series of sensor-dry cycles. Not really sure what the difference is there, but frankly, the sensor-dry cycles on this machine aren't that great. After using them, the laundry is still quite damp, so the manual-dry cycles are the only ones we use. Kind of a bummer because a machine that senses dryness properly would be more efficient. Still gets a thumbs up overall.

    Great Dryer

    I haven't bought a new washer or dryer in almost 17 years. Technology sure has changed a lot. I was moving into an apartment complex that didn't have a w/d so I had to get one. I've debated on getting one vs renting or going to a laundromat and came to the conclusion that it's probably cheaper in the long run to buy my own. Besides, when I do move into my own place I have one less thing to worry about. Anyway, I was looking for something that's not too expensive but with a large interior and the sales person sold me on this LG model. I like how all the function buttons are up front. It has many modes for the dryer. So far I am liking it. The only thing that I wish it'll do is to fold my clothes for me too. But that's just me dreaming. It is also fairly quiet. I've used it several times drying anything from clothes to a down comforter. The settings allowed me to get everything dry the first time around. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

    Great machines for the price

    We looked at reviews for all the different brands of washers and dryers under $600/machine. The LG’s seemed to be the best quality for the price. We actually got these for $499 each for Black Friday and they’re great. They both look nice, clean, and modern. I love the washing machine. The gentle cycle is very gentle. The tub is stainless steel. The dryer senses when your clothes are dry, but I don’t think it does a great job because it often stops the cycle before things are completely dry. That’s my only complaint, but it’s easily resolved. Just set the timed dry to the minutes you want. I know there’s an app so you can see when the clothes are done and all that but I’m not fancy enough to use it. Lol overall, we got a great deal and I don’t regret getting these.

    This dryer is very efficient and very quite. In my old dryer a load of permanent press clothes (shirts, blouses, etc) would take an hour to 90 minutes to dry. This dryer I tell it the type of clothes and it sets the time. Even heavier loads such as jeans take only about 35 minutes to dry. Nice little tune at the end tells me clothes are ready. I haven't used the app yet, but you can put clothes in and then turn the dryer on with your phone. I think this would be helpful if I was going out of the house for a short while. I could turn the dryer on when I'm getting ready to return and clothes would be ready when I got home.

    Great washer and dryer

    I really enjoy my new washer and dryer. I am a first time buyer of both and have really enjoyed the ease of use and size of load for both. The dryer door was adjustable and able to open on the opposite side too which really helped with the setup I have in my laundry room. There are 2 downfalls: 1. is that if the washer is not balanced, it completely stops until you can move items around (which occasionally happens more frequently in the middle of the cycle with comforters and mattress covers; 2. Because the sensor determines how big the load is and what Is needed to wash it, sometimes the water does not fill to the top of the clothes which occasionally leaves the top item dry. Other than that, I really love them both and enjoy seeing through into the washer so I know what step it is on and the song that plays when the wash is complete (much more relaxing than the typical buzzer).

    Well Worth The Money

    I bought this dryer when it was on sale at BB in January this year and have done around 20 loads (dried). So far this has been a terrific appliance. The sensor dry function works wonderfully. Clothes are perfectly dry and I have many different settings for different drying scenarios as well as a programmable setting I can custom tailor for my preferences. I bought the companion HE washer with it and together with the high speed spin function, clothes are dry in minimal time - no question of appreciable energy/cost savings. The lint filter is large and easy to clean - I like the light in the dryer too! It is the best dryer I have ever had and I certainly recommend this appliance. I can not comment on the longevity however, but since it was on sale at such a great price, I went ahead and bought the BB in-hoe extended warranty (strictly a personal decision).
