Good dryer, in theory; lousy LG service and repair record

Summary: This is a good dryer, in theory. However, in the 2 1/2 years I owned it I had several service calls, all related to an overheat-shutoff issue. Basically, it's easy for something to get stuck and cause overheating, which shuts off the dryer. There is a reset switch inside, but the back must be removed to gain access to it.
Summary: Amazing machine. All you need to do is empty the water collection drawer after each big load, clean the filter after each session and about 3 times a year, wash out the condenser coils and give the sensor pads a wipe. All easily accessible from the front. It is a very quiet machine and the sensor drying is great. It will keep clothes almost wrinkle free with it's auto-reversing action. I love this machine.
Excerpt: The LG Compact Dryer is really a reliable and handy clothes dryer to have. I have used this dryer almost every day since purchasing 2 year ago, and it hasn't went down in performance at all. The front load is easier to me to throw the clothes in from a basket. That's why purhasing this dryer was easier for me, over ther brands. The features and settings allow a child, thats old enough, to to able to function this machine and dry their own clothes, as well.
Excerpt: Overall I'm very happy with this dryer. I do however wish I would have re thought the idea of having a front load dryer. It is really difficult to transfer the clothes from the washer to the dryer. It does however make it much easier to transfer the clothes to the laundry basket to fold. I am very happy with the performance of this clothes dryer. It always gets my clothes very dry. I also love all of the wonderful features this dryer has.
Excerpt: This dryer is amazing! I'm able to put twice the amount of clothes into this dryer versus my old one. No more trips to the laundry mat to wash and dry bedding! I feel that this dryer has saved me money when it comes to reviewing our electricity bill. At first this dryer comes off as confusing, with all of the included features, but once you get the hang of it, it's a snap! Best dryer I have ever had the pleasure of using!
Excerpt: Last week we flew down to Sunrise, Florida to visit with my mother and escape the artic blast we were having at home. We stayed in mom's condo and she let me use her washer and dryer while there. I was amazed to see the multiple settings on this smaller dryer. Before I forget to mention, it is ventless. Surprizingly it did not heat up the room as I thought it would.
Excerpt: This is the LG dryer we used at the theatre company I worked at. It's a great little dryer! Working at a theatre with multiple costumes that need washing and drying on a near-daily, or sometimes twice daily, basis, we needed a machine that was reasonably priced, efficient, reliable, gentle, and one that didn't take up too much space but was still capable of large loads. I think this has been a great fit for us.
Excerpt: A few years of owning this dryer and no issues as of yet. It runs well, saves energy and is well worth the price (roughly $750).Load CapacityThis dryer will hold twice the load of any 'typical' dryer. It looks like a small space but the inside is actually deep and quite large.PerformanceIt is quiet when running. It's hard to tell it's even running. After it is done running, it will tumble clothing without heat to prevent wrinkles. It has several drying settings..
