About - LG DLG1002W

The LG DLG1002W is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, gas dryer models like the DLG1002W 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.

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

Convenience:
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.

Comment:
This applies to the LG 1102 with dual moisture sensors. I use this machine 3-5 times a week. I purchased it because my the moisture sensor quit working on my old Kenmore. Its nice looking, the controls are simple enough, and it checks to be sure the duct isn't restricted. The mechanical part is quiet enough, but the flame burns much louder than my old dryer. (Indicates the flame is burning much to lean) This machine works OK on timed cycle, but always leaves everything just a little damp on auto cycles, even when I use extra dry. Talked with an LG C.S. rep, spent an hour testing things I knew were working - it gets hot and the air flow is great. Then he said it was OK. I asked what were the Filipino words for bull and feces. He then said they had no service men in my area, but he would try to find one and get back to me. I'm still waiting.
How long have you owned it:
