About - LG DLG4802[W]

The LG DLG4802[W] is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, gas dryer models like the DLG4802[W] 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:
It took 2 whole cycles to dry cotton towels and socks.I was very disappointed that everything takes so much longer that my 15 yr.old Kenmore.The design is not good,the top of dryer is slanted downward not flat,not good for folding clothes on top.The buzzer for end of cycle is too quiet even on the loudest setting.
How long have you owned it:
