Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice for the price! Excellent dryer for the price. I can't believe I purchased such a large capacity high performing dryer for such a low price. Thanks AC for making this happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Dryer We bought the matching pair and love both pieces. We waited a few months to rate them to make sure they were as good as we thought they were and they ARE. Dryer is huge, with many settings. The sensor works great and I love the antibacterial setting. The lint trap is easy to clean and all knobs and settings are easy to reach and understand. The set is amazing and I thoroughly enjoy doing laundry these days. I'm so happy we followed the recommendation and reviews to purchase the LG washer and dryer instead of one of the more common brands. Brands that we have had to replace frequently and just don't have the reputation they had generations ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features The ability to set custom cycles is very much appreciated. I wear lots of sweaters, and knit shirts and I like the ability to set long time and low temp rather then dealing with dry flat recommendation on the labels. Best feature is the airflow sensor. Construction on my house has the dryer vent running running under the floor making at least one 90 deg bend in flexible conduit. Did a thorough cleaning before the install with flex brush from home improvement store and got a lot out. This was 1 year after having it cleaned professionally. I really like this feature for safety to reduce the risk of fire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer - Great Value We purchased this dryer and its companion WT4870CW washer for a laundry room renovation of our winter home. So far, everything about this machine has been really good, with one glaring exception. The latch on the dryer door is rough, noisy, and lends the impression of cheapness to an otherwise great appliance. It feels like something in the latch is snagging. It's as if LG forgot to finish this one, last little thing, and it makes a strong, negative impression every time the machine is used. Please take the time to provide a redesigned latching system for the door that provides the tactile and auditory sensations of a quality product. The devil is in the details, and this one was missed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer This dryer does a great job, has several types of drying to pick from. We had to change the way the door opens, and it was very easy to do. The instructions caution that the door is heavy, but it is not. It would be good to have a second person help to take it off and reinstall just to make it easier to do. Holds a lot and dries fast. I found that jeans might be a little damp if dried with other items, so I just toss them back in on timed dry for a few more minutes while I fold the rest. Not a problem for me, I don't want everything to be super dry, would rather choose what items I dry a little longer. Has not shrunk anything, and clothes seem to come out less wrinkled than my old dryer--I am ironing less!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice collection of features This is our first electronic, digital controlled dryer and I was afraid it was going to be confusing and difficult to figure out. No so in the least. It's very straight forward and the graphic and sound feedback is great. An esp nice feature is being able to set up a Custom setting of our own making. Really, don't most of us use one mix of setting more often than not? Well this lets you pre-set it and get all you want with one selection. We're both VERY please with our new dryer and would recommend it to anyone in need of a new one. Size, feature and ease of use is GREAT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large capacity and efficient This dryer was purchased with its companion washer. The settings are easy to understand and can be tailored to best dry a specific load. The capacity is huge! Drying time is cut in half compared to my old dryer, and clothes come out with few wrinkles. Love the musical chime at the end of the cycle -- so much more pleasant that the awful buzzer on my old dryer. I do wish that there was a setting so that permanent press clothes would continue to tumble (not intermittently tumble) after drying is complete and that the chime would repeat after 5 or 10 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had a few problems with a squeak-Love it now I love my new dryer but had some problems initially. After about a week and a half it started to squeak. It would start shortly after we turned it on and continue through most of the drying cycle. I had to make some calls and get a technician out who ultimately found out from LG Technical that this was problem they had been hearing a lot about and were replacing a piece below the dryer drum. The piece was sent, the technician came and replaced it and after about five minutes it went away. It has been a week and no reoccurring squeaks. This dryer works great and has a cheery little song when its done instead of the standard buzzer I am used to. At first I was concerned about our purchase and the quality but LG takes excellent care of their clients.
