About - LG DLE1001W

The LG DLE1001W is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric dryer models like the DLE1001W are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Drying performance:
This score combines performance on three types of laundry loads of different sizes and fabric mixes: A 12-lb. load, predominantly cotton, representing a family's large weekly load; an 8-lb. load of cotton/polyester blend clothing; and a 3-lb. load of synthetic delicates, women's pajamas, nightgowns, bras and underwear.

Among the models we tested, drum volume varied from about 6 to 8.0 cu. ft.

For this measurement, we judged controls and ergonomics, such as ease of loading and unloading, servicing the lint filter, whether the door could clear a tall basket, and whether the machine has a raised edge to contain spills.

We like the w/d combination here...the top load washer doesn't smell like many top loaders and the dryer does a good job too.<br /><br />One thing to watch out for....especially on the dryer. Do NOT put baskets and the like

I've owned this dryer for about a year now, buying it on clearance for less than $400. I already had the matching washer, which I have been thoroughly impressed with from day one. I like the automatic cycle settings in that they are extremely efficient in drying....oftentimes a full load of cotton wovens will take less than fifteen minutes to completely dry; and they come out wrinkle-free, ready to wear. The incredible spin cycle of the washer is the perfect compliment to this dryer, the two making for a very short laundry day. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to anyone. If I had to identify one issue I would say that the curved top without a back panel means that I sometimes have to rescue socks from the space between the machine and the wall.
