Dryer has many bells and whistles to help sell it. But the basics are not there. After owning it less than 3 months, the dryer would not come on. When I called for warranty service, the rep spoke in a heavily-accented dialect difficult to understand. Had to go through a 15-minute drill before rep would even attempt to call a repairman. Repairman did not answer, so she gave me the direct contact number with an area code that was not even in my city (a major metro area with over 500,000 pop.). LG has tried to manufacture an elaborate dryer, but has failed to follow up with contracting with adequate number of repair shops to cover their service needs. Followed up with a service supervisor in AL who was absolutely no help. Pathetic warranty service. LG obviously not ready for the major leagues. After 2 hours since initial call, still waiting (and counting) for return call from service man.

Absolutely Exceptional Dryer
Easy To Use
Incredible Cycle Choices
No Negatives At All
Any Load Small Or Large
King Comforter No Problem
Sheets & Mattress Covers
Pick a cycle and it works perfectly!<br />I have dried everything from a king comforter with sheets and pillow cases to a full load of mixed items including jeans, towels, shirts, socks, underwear and sweaters with very very little or no lint on anything.<br />The Steam Cycle is great for previosly stored wrinkled items.<br />This dryer is very easy to use with always great results.<br />This dryer knows exactly what to do with each cycle with its Drying Sensor for perfect automatic heat selection and time even if you want clothes slightly damp for ironing ie special dress shirts etc.<br />I am stunned by this machines ability to automatically dry anything just by selecting a cycle and forgetting it....even a feature to keep clothes wrinkle free for hours if you can't remove them right away!
