    Most Innovative Dryer!

    Posted

    This LG is the most innovative Dryer on the market today with steam, Sensor Dry, 14 Presets & so much more! It is a perfect compliment to the matching LG Washer. It dries the clothes thoroughly with no drama or difficulties, loud noises or smells. This is a gorgeous machine, with the controls & expansive display on the door. It is the quietest Dryer on the market today. I love how it plays an upbeat tune instead of the old BEEP, BEEP! of our other appliances! Only one complaint: The WIFI sets up but on iOS devices, all you can do is to turn the machine off, once it is running. iOS was clearly an afterthought, in fact the instructions state it does not support Apple iOS. This is inexcusable for a product that lists for $1,799. Other than that one complaint, this Dryer stays balanced, sips energy & runs quiet & true!! This Dryer (and the Washer) measures 29" wide, so you should measure your laundry room door & any other access doors to be sure you have 29" + clearance for this Dryer! (Same for the Washer!). This is the #1 reason for this appliance to be returned! It simply does not fit many houses! In fact, the Washer & Dryer I bought were sold & could not fit in the door to someone's house. I bought them both NEW as Floor Models!

    Great for Wash / Bad WiFi-App Integration

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    I bought the Washer, Dryer and Sidekick. Ran through several loads so far and really love the cleaning results. The WiFi setup; however, was not well documented and complicated. I ended up holding down the WiFi connect button and then searching on my iPhone for the Washer/Dryer WiFi connection (doing each one separately) - looked up my network settings for the gateway and plugged the gateway IP in the browser which took me to the network config page for the item... This finally get the device online and connected to SmartThinQ. The App, what a terrible effort, it has not been updated since 2014 and clearly does not yet support either product (at least on the iPhone). I found a PDF for LG's Home Chat which is a service through an app called "LINE" - downloaded and noticed it could add my Dryer but not the Washer... have not yet tried it, but it would be nice if I could tell when a cycle was finished since my pair are in the basement. Tried via the website and it constantly fails on the Washer - cannot upload onto either device pre-programmed wash/dry settings from the website - it just goes to a page cannot be found. The Sidekick, only have had the pair up and running since this last week and have only tried this with one load. It is small (as expected) so really only useful when you have a small load - like a single outfit or what not. Also, in case you are wondering, the Sidekick does not have WiFi integration. The steam function on the Dryer, experimented with this - it basically squirts water on the clothes, there is a sanitary steam function which eventually turns the squirting water into steam - have not had a reason to try this yet so not sure how well this function works. But it does seem to squirt/spray what seems like a lot of water... [based on an empty drum] I may seem highly critical, but for this price point I would have expected everything promoted about these devices to work out of the box. Once they do, and I can be upstairs and my phone tells me to transfer the wash to the dryer or that it's time to fold the laundry, then I will be excited about my purchase! Because these are otherwise pretty great!

    Now IOS compatible

    Got the matching set. This dryer is massive and has a stainless steel lighted tub. We washed 2 loads in the full size washer and 1 load in the pedestal sidekick washer. Put everything in the dryer. Took about an hour to dry everything on low heat. Left the clothes in overnight to wrinkle. I wanted to test the steam feature. The next day the shirts were full of wrinkles. Set the dryer to the steam fresh cycle. After 11 min everything came out looking perfect. This dryer contrary to the other reviews is Apple IOS compatible. I downloaded the Smart ThinQ app from LG rather than the Apple App Store. Connection was easy. The app allows full control of the W/D and all their cycles. You get alerts when your clothes are done and you can also watch the progress of your cycles and estimated completion time on your phone. Love this set!

    Fantastic Washer

    This is by far the BEST washer I have ever owned. It is quiet, washes efficiently, and can handle a large amount of wash at one time while still cleaning really well. This is the first front-loading machine I have owned because I have been hesitant about the possibility of mold growing in the door seal. This design seems to be a big improvement over older designs and the door and seal are very easy to dry and keep clean. This machine has so many cycles that I have not been able to try them all in the month I've owned it. I will say clothes come out cleaner than before and towels are spun so well the drying time is cut way down. I have nothing but positive things to say about these machines. The addition of the pedestals makes for an easier time moving laundry in and out of the machines as they are such a large capacity and you don't need to "crawl" in them to get everything out. Highly recommend this LG washer.

    Great dryer if vented properly

    When first installed, the dryer must not have been vented properly because it created a large amount of condensation on the floors and other furniture in the laundry room. It was like a wet sauna. We were worried about it and called the geek squad to come out to check it out. The "squad" consisted of two individuals that couldn't have been bothered to be there. After approx. 10 seconds, they decided it was a broken machine that need to be replaced. In their haste to leave, they somehow properly vented the dryer. THIS DRYER ROCKS!!! It's capacity is fabulous, I put a queen size quilt/blanket in it and the dryer dried it with no problem.( My last dryer would have taken forever and the blanket still wouldn't have been dry.) Anyway, for as long as the dryer is vented correctly, we have had no additional condensation. I really, really like this dryer. Five stars for the dryer. It is a beast!!! If you have a problem with condensation, make sure you check out the machine is vented correctly....it is probably not the dryer, it may be the installation.

    I have been looking at a new washer and dryer set for a while and saw this unit and thought it would be fun to have the wireless functionality as well as the size of the unit. We have an 8 person household so needed the largest capacity for all of us. It works great. The wireless functionality is really fun as I get text alerts when the washer or dryer is done and can even check the status of the cycle to see how much time is left. Note that I have only been able to get this functionality to work on my android phone, not the iphone. One thing that would be nice is if it had a sleep mode which would keep the wireless signal turned on instead of having to put it into remote start mode and then turn it on later. I don't see much use for that. Use/case scenario is you know that a comforter and sheet set will need two drying cycles so once it is done, being able to restart it remotely. This is not possible as you cannot put it into Remote Start mode and then run a cycle as it takes it out of that mode once the cycle is finished.

    Moisture sensor is good and bad

    I appreciate the sensor - but it seems that sometimes the clothes are still damp, and other times they are overly hot for the "Cool" temperature I have picked to dry clothes. It will hold the capacity from the washer without problem. I do find that bedding needs to be dried twice. Take it out after the first dry time and unroll it and put it back in again. Even with dryer balls the bedding rolls up and the "inside" of the roll won't dry. I like the intermittent tumble feature that occurs when I don't get the perm. press out to hang up.

    Good dryer

    I am still figuring out all the bells and whistles, but the dryer seems to be working well. There are only two things that make me mark it as four instead of five stars. First, sometimes the clothes come out with damp spots and so need to set the dryness setting to extra dry. Second, many of the drying cycles do not let me adjust the temperature. There may be a way to do it with the special load programs, but I haven't had time to investigate that yet.
