About - LG DLG1102W

The LG DLG1102W is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, gas dryer models like the DLG1102W 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:
LG Model DLG1102W - Installed on 9/27/14 and we're on our second service call.<br /><br />First tecnician couldn't solve the problem, but his report indicated he fixed the machine - NOT TRUE. The machine makes a sort of rattling sound when it's turned on. It's noisy even when the dryer is enpty...<br /><br />Went to a big box store that the same model on display and asked the salesman to plug it in so I could hear how quiet it is. Surprise !! no rattling noise.<br /><br />LG customer service is cumbersome - their service calender only goes out 7 days at a time. If you want to schedule a date 8 or 10 days in the future you have to wait until that week to book an appointment.
