      Worst experience ever

      I purchased a new LG washer and dryer a couple months ago and had it installed by the Geek Squad. The washer was malfunctioning on the first wash and had to be replaced. When the washer was replaced, something happened to the dryer and it had to be replaced. The original washer I purchased had been discontinued, so I had to get another version that does not match the washer. Also, they wanted me to pay the difference for the "upgraded" dryer. After complaining on why this was not acceptable, they conceded to eat the cost. When they came on yet another day to replace the dryer, they did not hook up the dryer to the waterline for the steam function to work. They returned yesterday for a fourth time to fix this issue. When they left, I had a minor meltdown because the washer didn't work. Luckily, it was just that they had not turned the waterlines back on. This has been the most frustrating purchase ever. I was out multiple days of work and so much time. All of my experiences talking to people about this problem were flippant at best. I will not be using Best Buy, Geek Squad, or any LG product in the future.

      It is just a three prong cord nothing special. You can get them cheaper at big box stores, if you do purchase one else where do not take it out of the package until Best Buy installer installs and see your cord is new and in a package. I had a new cord that I opened before they installed the dryer and the installer told me he had to use the BB cord cause I had mine out of the package. If he used mine it would void my warranty. I told the sales person in the store I had the cord their response was it would be up to the installer as to whether to use the one I had or the one I had to buy at BB. Funny thing was on the dryer kit BB sells the sales person told me it was required too, so I purchased it. When the installer came out he told me he did not need to use the one I bought at BB that my existing exhaust was fine. My guess is he did not want to go under the house and install the dryer exhaust kit. He did mention to me he was trying to get through as quick as he could to get off early.

      Best Buy and the manufacturers have gotten together and made it where you HAVE to buy a new power cord from the retailer when you buy the washer or dryer. The units simply don't come with one. So, whether you're buying from BB, or from another source, you still get to invest in a brand new power cord. Silly, I know. My only real complaint is that BB should sell more than just 6-foot power cords. In most homes, the power outlet is OPPOSITE the connection on the back of the washer or dryer, and that limits the position you can put the dryer in your laundry area. At least that's the case for me. A 9-foot or 10-foot cord would have been better.

      Bought new washer & dryer & all new connections & install from Best Buy. Dryer quit working & burning smell. Referred to Whirlpool repair service, quickly serviced dryer & found loose power cord in back of dryer, which was installed by Best Buy. Entire wiring harness burned & needs replaced. Whirlpool does not cover cost of new power cord, since I purchased from Best Buy. Visited store in person & called customer service, only to be told no, it's been past 90 days. At least another week until dryer will be repaired & Best Buy won't even be reasonable & cover the $19.99 power cord they sold & installed poorly. $19.99 power cord unfortunately is going to cost Best Buy a longtime & frequent customer.

      Good length

      When I had this dryer installed, because of an older home, I decided to call an electrician to check out the 220 wiring - good thing I did as I had a 4-prong receptacle in a 3-prong wiring set up, so we had it changed back to 3-prong receptacle. Unfortunately our electrician installed the receptacle upside down - the angled prong on this cord is on the top - just in case you need to know - and until he returns, the end of the cord is pointing upwards. Since the receptacle is up by the top of the dryer its a bit of a strain on the receptacle itself due to the weight. The length is great however and allows movement of the dryer to clean behind and it's not too thick so it snugs up close to the wall. The one I received is a gray, not black as in the photo.

      How did I not buy this sooner?

      Honestly, I don't know how I went so long without this product in my life. The Smart Choice - 6' 30 Amp Dryer Cord Required for Hook-Up is everything it says it is. It really is 6 feet long, provides 30 Amps to my dryer, and is totally necessary for hook-up. I mean, you can really feel that 30 Amps rushing into the dryer. Vicariously, that is. If you sit and watch it, there's no mistaking who the conduit of power is in this set up. It's the Smart Choice - 6' 30 Amp Dryer Cord Required for Hook-Up. My only problem: why not a flashier selection of colors? A more modern prong? The design team here seems to lack imagination. Aside from that though, I can't say enough good things about the Smart Choice - 6' 30 Amp Dryer Cord Required for Hook-Up.

      Does not work well with the GE 24 inch dryer.

      Best Buy included this cord with my purchase of a new washer and dryer. First of all the installer wired it to the dryer incorrectly (despite a very clear diagram on the back of the unit) which my electrician spouse had to point out and make sure it was corrected. Then the configuration of the cord is such that the cover plate designed to enclose the cord connection to the dryer would not close properly. This cord may work for other dryers but it does not work well with the GE dryer. The dryer is stacked so the slightly ajar cover plate is not a safety issue but I would not buy this again.

      New cord for every new appliance.

      I thought about using my old cord to save money, but when the installer mentioned that OSHA requires a new cord for every new appliance, it makes perfect sense especially when dealing with electricity. Mine didn't work right at first. I even replaced the outlet until I read that for every major appliance installation that the breaker for that appliance outlet needs to be shut off first, plug in the appliance, then turn on the breaker for the full 240 wattage to be available for the appliance to work properly.
