Summary: Only 1 and a half years after purchasing, this dryer stopped heating! After many attempts to find out the problem, finally determined that it was the thermostat so we replaced it. also, the "smart diagnostics" was not helpful and couldn't figure out what was wrong so they just said it wasn't venting, which it was.so, then it worked great for 9 more months and did the same thing and replaced the thermostat and it was great.
Summary: Up until 3 weeks ago I loved this dryer ...Then something in the control board has malfunctioned and it only works sporadically.Dryer is only 3 years old(my last kenmore was15 years old and still working)had a service tech look at it and he thinks the panel is gone.Probably have to buy another dryer.
Summary: Bought the washer and dyer at the same time. After about 10 months Washer leaked and about after 1 yr 2 months dryer will not turn off. I have to unplug the dyer. I will be hesitant before purchasing any LG product.
Summary: I really like my LG dryer. It is so easy to use and as long as I follow the easy to use settings I don't burn any clothes (soccer uniforms#. Even my boys can use it. I like the look but the top of the dryer #plastic) can get scratched easily so I avoid setting things on top of the dryer.
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings
Summary: This dryer, according to LG Customer Service should make noise when it starts and does go away after a little while. However, if I knew before I purchased this unit that it would make a thumping noise I probably would not have purchased it. I've had two reveiws already rejected by LG since I mentioned this noise, so I am not expecting this one to go through either. Guess they only publish positive reviews.
Summary: I did a lot of research and I chose the LG dryer because of LG's quality. The only thing we don't like about the dryer is the automatic drying sensor doesn't seem to work very well. For most loads, we end up choosing the more dry level because on normal dry it typically doesn't dry everything. This seems to be a common review from people on reviews from like Lowes/Home Depot/etc. Overall, we like the features and the dryer. The settings are easy to use.
Pros: Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: Love this dryer! It has a million different settings and features. It is very easy to use and looks great at the same time. My old dryer had to use two cycles for every load to get clothes dry. This dryer actually dries the clothes like it says it will. I love the sportswear mode - always wasted energy drying those items that dry quickly. I got a great price for this dryer and have loved it so far!
Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
Summary: When my 12 year old dryer "gave up the ghost" a few weeks ago I was not looking forward to spending the money to replace it as prices have increased in the past few years. However, much to my delight it is already earning its way at our house. The drying cycles meet the types of laundry I do and the drying time is more than half of the old dryer. So I am making back the $$ back on my electric bill.
