The LG DLE2250[W] is part of the clothes dryer
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric dryer
models like the DLE2250[W] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
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.
About This Brand
This company is known for its TrueSteam dryers and the designer colors available for its models. Some models have a steam generator intended to eliminate wrinkles. Prices for LG dryers range from $700 to $1,200.
Stainless-steel drum A stainless-steel drum is likely to resist damage better than plastic and painted metal drums.
Porcelain top A porcelain top resists scratching better than a painted one but generally adds to a dryer's cost. Painted tops, far more common, are often quite durable with normal use.
Drying rack The rack attaches inside the drum to keep items such as sneakers or sweaters from tumbling.
Custom programs This feature allows you to save your favorite settings.
Steam option Generally, a water hook-up is required with this feature. In this cycle, a small amount of water is sprayed into the drum while tumbling with heat. It helps to reduce wrinkles and odors, but is intended only for a few garments at a time.
I do find that some loads are damp when the cycle ends. But, come on! It's performed well for us and our very dirty dog and cat filled household.

Frustrated with this dryer
Easy To Use
Like The Wrinkle Guard
Plenty Of Options
Damp Dry Is Still Wet
Quiet End Of Cycle Signal
Things Catch Near Sensor
The damp dry signal is loud and goes on for a while, but the clothes are still very wet--useless. The end of cycle signal cannot be heard from the next room. 90% of the time I don't hear it and my clothes sit there. The wrinkle guard tumbles them, then sits for a while, then tumbles. They still wrinkle. Dryer sheets and thin fabrics get caught in a small space under the sensor by the door. That leaves the dryer sheet unused may damage fabrics. If they would fix those problems, I would love this dryer.
