    Machine DOA - Customer Service Non-Existent

    After a couple weeks of research and reading all of the reviews, we finally pulled the trigger and were excited to receive our new LG 3170 set. Delivery was right on time as promised. That's where the good stops. After unboxing the units in our driveway, the dryer was wheeled into the garage adjacent to the laundry room. Once there, the crew realized that the washer need to go in first. The crew member who was wheeling the dryer let go of the appliance dolly allowing the dryer to slam to the ground. I didn't think much of it at the time but that should have been red flag number one. After installing the washer, the dryer was next put into place and installed. (After pulling out the machine I would later discover that only half of the venting kit was used and that the extra parts - one right angle bend and two clamps - were not left for us despite the fact that we purchased them as part of the install kit. By not using the second right angle bend, the semirigid vent tube is attached to the wall pipe and and bent 90 degrees making it likely to be crushed behind the machine over time). Now for the initial dryer test - while it would beep and light up, the machine would not start. After unplugging and plugging the unit in 5 or 6 times, rocking the unit and opening and slamming the door shut (the equivalent of rebooting Windows apparently), the machine finally started. We did 3 loads of laundry last night and everything seemed to work fine. This morning we washed a set of sheets and threw it in the dryer, only to receive the "blue screen of death" that the installation crew experienced - lights and beeping but no go. I tried the unplugging and plugging, door slamming and rocking to no avail before finally breaking down to call Best Buy customer service. After working my way through the phone tree and explaining my problem, I was told that they would schedule a new install for me but that they could not schedule anything because the warehouse was closed and that I would need to call back tomorrow. I asked whether they could call me back tomorrow or have the warehouse call me and they said no, that I would have to call back. Needless to say, this is not the customer service I expected from Best Buy. I understand that a new unit probably could not be delivered today or even tomorrow but to pass the buck and tell the customer that they will have to call back "tomorrow" rather than offering to take care of the scheduling when the warehouse opens or simply have the warehouse personnel return the client's phone call is unacceptable.

    I chose this dryer after weeks of researching and comparing other options, which I am very satisfied with. PROS: •Download Cycles to accommodate your needs. (I suggest watching the LG NFC TAG ON tutorial for simple instructions on the download cycle process) •I've used all available cycles and have yet to have any issues with clothes not being dry. •Adjustable Features Include: Dry Level, Temp Control, Time Dry and Signal Volume. •Smart Diagnosis •Extra Optional Functions such as Wrinkle Care, Damp Signal, Anti Bacterial, Ect.) •Child Lock CONS: • There were 2 times in which the dryer had a burning smell, (almost like rubber) but it has seemed to go away after the first few times of using it. The Best Buy sales associate was amazing in every way and definitely made the deciding process much easier with her knowledge on the variety of products available.

    Installation problems

    Installation was a comedy of errors. We ordered "stacked" installation with dryer on top of washer. Apparently this means that they stack the assembly in the truck and deliver a stacked unit. This was a problem because in this old house there isn't an entry that allowed a stacked unit and they ended up dropping the dryer and both units ended up with scratches or dents. Then to top it off the dryer cord wasn't long enough and they don't sell a longer cord at Best Buy. So I had to order a long cord from Wal-Mart and install it myself. Salesman promised new units to be installed the next week and a discount on both units but that never happened only got a discount on one of the units. When the new units came I had to stop them from stacking the units on the delivery truck by threatening to refuse delivery. They finally got both units installed without any scratches or dents, but still no dryer cord. And no discount on both units. The washer seems to be having problems on the spin cycle (noise). So I'll be calling them out to look at it. I would not recommend buying from Best Buy if you require stacked units.

    so disappointing

    Posted
    madanddisappointed

    Had a LG electric dryer before but the washer went out and had to get a new dryer too to be stackable , or so I was told . Bought this dryer with the matching washer based on the great reviews. First dryer would not dry completely so I had it returned. Second dryer came dented . The third dryer STILL has the same problem . Clothes won't dry unless you put it on MORE DRY. Thought it was just the way it was and lived with it for almost a year. Then I got tired of it and did the trouble shooting which came up D80 . This meant my vent was clogged. Took the four foot section off and no clogs. Called LG and they tried to tell me it was my vent till I finally put my foot down and said send a tech. Tech came out today and it is definitely in the machine but he is not sure where. He is coming back. Starting reading online and evidently this a common problem with LG and requires constant reset of some sensor. We will see. Funny thing I bought LG again also in part to my old one being so great and trouble free. So frustrated and disappointed . This Dryer wasnt cheap .

    Balls and Ropes

    I had a Neptune front load washer/dryer combination and this is larger capacity than the Neptune. The washer works very well. The dryer has some real problems. My laundry comes out in a combination of big balls and long ropes. This makes getting the job done a lengthy procedure. So far I've followed all the advice I can get, folding the sheets before putting them in the dryer, putting sheets on top, using shoes, etc. etc. The Neptune dryer worked perfectly at drying. The Best Buy sales force haven't got a clue and act as though I'm the first person to mention this problem. YouTube has many complainants attempting to solve this issue. Is there no solution LG? I cannot figure out what is wrong with the LG dryer, but unless I find a solution I'm returning it.

    DO NOT BUY

    Posted
    CarolynD

    I made this account for the sole purpose of giving this washer a bad review. It QUICKLY (under 30 days) after purchasing grows mildew inside. The interior STINKS which does not give peace of mind that it gets your clothes clean. I have been buying washer cleaner to address and it does help. Another thing I do not like is that it barely soaks your clothes. There is never a point in the cycle where they are fully submerged. Instead, streams of water jet through them. Another issue is that over time my clothes are getting ruined because it does NOT remove pet hair. The washer I had before this was a cheap top loader and I never had this problem with the pet fur. I bought this in May 2016 and its now March 2017. Today I opened the soap tray to find huge black mold spots inside. Enough is enough. I am on my way to the store to buy a new washer.

    Terrible purchase

    I’m not one to usually review products, but I’ll make an exception for this. I purchased this dryer less than three years ago and it has stopped working twice. The first time it quit working was less than a year after purchase. I had the dryer repaired and then less than two years later it stopped working again. Both times it was the exact same part that went bad. Apparently it must be a common problem with these dryers because LG can’t make the part fast enough. I now have the choice of waiting around 2 months to receive the part or going and buying a new dryer. I’ve always been a fan of LG, but I will never buy another dryer from them.

    Great LG Dryer

    Purchased at the same time I bought the LG Front Load washing machine. This dryer has a "sensor" so if the air isn't venting properly, it will shut down. The house that I own has a very long vent that runs through the floor and out the house some 15-20ft long. It was almost impossible to keep clean. Needless to say, I had to modify the vent in order to get this dryer to function properly. Thanks to YouTube, I created a new vent straight out of the house. The dryer works famously when vented properly. Most cycles show dry times of 50-60 minutes and actually get done in 15-20 minutes (when using the moisture sensor setting). Clothes dry so quickly. Think of all the money saved in electricity. Great machine, and like the washer it plays a nice little chime when the cycle is complete.
