    I am ecstatic over this dryer purchase. This machine has so many bells and whistles and for an outstanding price. I got it for sale over the Labor Day weekend for $599. This is only $100-$150 more than similar size capacity dryers from the Samsung and GE lineup but has SO many more features including the smartphone app and smart diagnostic capability, as well as an indicator that lets you know when your vent needs to cleaned to maximize efficiency. I think this is so awesome because not many people know that they should be having the dryer vents cleaned on an annual basis so getting a notification from your dryer is pretty convenient. Also this model is energy star rated, saving you money over time. Obviously, the different options for opening the dryer door from the side or from the top is incredibly cool, especially to prevent clothes from falling on the floor when transferring from the washer or even when removing the dried loads. It's important to note that LG is a company that does not use cheap parts like some of its competitors. They make quality products and they have been proven to have sustainability over time which means less headaches. I checked this dryer out on Consumer Reports and it had the least incidence rating of repairs and problems over 5 years of ownership compared to other name brands. Even the associate at Best Buy who deals with a lot of customer service related calls stated that she gets the least complaints with the LG products. My 4K TV is LG and I will never get a different brand. Even the LG customer support is top notch compared to other reputable brands. Also, this dryer is very attractive. Love the design and its ease of use. Thanks Best Buy for all the help.

    Nice features, but drying ability is typical

    This is a very nice dryer. It has a large drum to hold lots of clothes, which is needed if you have the matching top load HE washer because it holds tons of clothes. The drum light is great and the glass door is a good feature so the clothes can be seen while the dryer is running. It has an energy saving feature where it starts without heat for a few minutes, but it cannot be used on all settings - only a few. I used the sensor dry feature on the normal dry setting and put in a mixed load of clothes (I am not going to wash 5 loads of clothes just to match each garment type) and some were still damp, so I had to put some of them back in the dryer on timed dry to get them completely dry. Since then, I just increase the sensor drying on mixed loads to more dry and it works great. I like that the door can be opened either sideways or down. When opening it down, it only opens about 45 degrees and acts as a chute to put wet clothes into the dryer, which is easier than throwing them in and there's less chance of dropping them on the floor. Then, when the clothes are dry, opening the door sideways makes it easier to get them out. It also has the wrinkle care setting to keep tumbling the clothes periodically after it finishes to help prevent wrinkles. This is in case you cannot take the clothes out right away. Like the matching washer, it has WiFi so it can be started and/or monitored with a smartphone. I use the end of cycle signal, but even on its loudest setting I do not always hear it when across the house, especially if the TV is on. So, I can check my phone to see when it's done in case I don't hear the signal. Since dryers can cause fires when lint builds up in the exhaust vent, I am glad this dryer has a vent monitoring system where it checks for air flow. While I do clean my vent periodically, it's nice to have the monitor in case there's excess lint buildup. I am happy with my purchase and I can honestly recommend this dryer.

    We're on our second one, both are absolute trash

    Our old dryer was on it's last legs and our washer died. We figured we'd just bite the bullet and replace them both at the same time. We got this dryer and the companion washer. The washer works pretty well. The dryer though, this is a total failure of a product. The first one we bought just didn't work. The sensors are completely faulty on this model. They don't detect moisture properly and incorrectly lower the dry time. This means it takes eternity to dry a standard load. It would take 3, 4, sometimes cycles to dry. Called Bestbuy, they came out to exchange the unit. We're about 3 weeks into the second unit usage, and same problem as before. I've got one pair of pajama pants on its 4th manual cycle (heat is maxxed out) and they are still WET. Not damp. WET. This thing is total trash. It is a complete failure of a product. We're shopping for something more conventional now.

    We bought the Geek Squad protection and I think that was a good decision! The dryer light keeps notifying us the lint filter needs to be cleaned, but when we check the filter, it has nothing in it. It happens when the load is a bit on the fuller side but not overloaded for sure. We reset the button and start again and may have to repeat several times to get the clothes dry. It is very frustrating, but we will try a few more fuller loads before we engage the Geek Squad. Not sure I could recommend it at this point, but I will update in a month or so if we can somehow get this resolved. As of now, I probably would not recommend to a friend. As a positive, I like the appearance and that the door will open either to the side or down. Ultimately it doesn’t matter though if we have to babysit every load of laundry.

    Works great but check your venting system

    We purchased this new dryer at Best Buy. The sales people were helpful. We had some problems but all seems to be well now, keeping in mind we have not had the product very long: 1. The installers squashed the dryer vent (the metal flexible tube part). We started getting d80 and d90 low flow codes. Using my fist, I un-squashed the vent and tried again. Ran a few loads then started getting the codes. 2. I felt that for $800+ (extended warranty as well) we were entitled to a proper installation. We did suspect our housing vent system may be plugged.but called anyway. This crew pronounced the installation to be OK, suggested we ask for a warranty replacement. We still got the codes. 3. Figuring a 30-year-old venting duct might be the problem (though our old dryer could care lass), we hired Zerorez to clean it and, behold, it works, at least the first two loads since we had that work done. So far, then I would give the dryer a 5, the installers a 2 or 3. Hopefully we will have years of trouble free service now?

    This Dryer is Smart

    I bought this dryer because my old one took 2 -3 hours to dry one load of clothes. Well upon my first use of this new dryer, my clothes did not fully dry and there was an error of D90 on the machine. At first I was upset, but then I went to the manual and looked up the error code. D90 meant my dryer vents in my house were 90% blocked. Apparently you are supposed to have those cleaned every 2 years which I did not know. I called a vent cleaning service the next day. After they cleaned the vents, I used the new dryer and my clothes came out completely dry. Even though I now know my other dryer probably wasn't broken, I'm still glad I purchased this dryer. The vent blockage detection feature makes it worth every penny.

    The dryer itself works fine. Two-way door is a nice feature and works well so far. Time will tell if the "convertible hinge" is well engineered or a maintenance issue. The dryer seems to be more efficient than our old (15 years) model, clothes get fully dry faster and with what seems like less heat. Nice. The Best Buy contracted delivery, setup and haulaway went fine. Only problem, and the reason for the headline, is the side vent kit. The dryer is built for it, LG (and others) make it, but Best Buy doesn't sell it. Getting it on line turned out to be much, much more of a hassle and expense than I ever would have imagined. LG price is twice what you can find elsewhere, and delivery is slow, so much so that I had to reschedule the dryer installation and go without a dryer for a week longer than if Best Buy could just stock the part and deliver it with the dryer.

    I purchased the dryer to replace a failing one. It was quick to connect and the app has been helpful. The initial setup of the app requires only moderate tech abilities. However, once connected we have been able to take advantage of remote start and remote alerts (no need for clothes to wrinkle because I am hanging out with the kids and didn't hear the buzzer. I now get an alert on my phone). We also have a vent stack that occasionally needs to be cleaned from outside, but its not easily visible so the ability for the system to alert us when the airflow starts getting restricted was both a great peace of mind item and a reassurance.
