Comment:
We purchased a home last year and the LG washer and dryer came with the house. The dryer is horrible! The clothes never dry. Last week I did a small load of 2 items, a flannel night shirt and a cotton t-shirt. Put the dryer on normal with more dry setting and it came out wet, even when I use very dry it's damp. If it's a load of towels or synthetics, the clothes will either be damp or burning hot. If it is a smaller load the dry sensor can't read the dampness and if it's a larger load the sensor can't tell it's dry. It's really a flip of the coin.<br /><br />I would not buy a LG and Consumer Reports' needs to re-evaluate their testing protocols. I called LG about servicing the dyer and the cost doesn't justify, you're better off buying a new dryer.

Comment:
Working great. Very high tech compared to my old top loader. Super quiet and sophisticated. I have my washer and dryer stacked and it's great. I can reach the controls and I'm only 5'2. The cycles take longer than my old washer but you also have the turbo wash option and a bigger load takes longer to wash. Very impressed with the technology of these washers. The dryer is great too.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I use this dryer for everything,towels, bedding, everyday clothing & permanent press. It is very quiet and my permanent press shirts come out looking darn near ironed. No permanent press shirt looks ironed, but this dryer does better than my 11 yr Maytag ever did and the Maytag was a very good dryer.<br /><br />I certainly can't speak about reliability yet, but the brand does get a high score in that respect - I'll keep my fingers crossed that they are as reliable as my Maytags were.<br /><br />I don't understand the performance issues some users have, this dryer works great for me!
