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 Quiet Efficiency This dryer has a pleasant sounding chime when a load is done, but you can turn it off if you want COMPLETE silence. Then you won't even hear the dryer working at all. The time it takes to dry a load of jeans is unbelievably short, which means I am not using as much energy to dry my clothes anymore. The inside light is handy when I don't want to turn on the light in the laundry room. Settings are intuitive and easy to adjust. I have to admit that I would not have bought it if not for the great sale, however. The original price is a bit out of budget, but the luxury styling for the price I paid is excellent!

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 Awesome Dryer I bought this dryer along with the washer. My previous "wonderful" front load turned out to be TERRIBLE!!!! I learned from that experience to read reviews! When looking for a washer / dryer, I looked at Lowes and this set was on sale for a great price. The reviews I read from this website, Lowes and Home Depot encouraged me to look to buy this product. I have not regretted it! It is the BEST washer and dryer I have ever purchased. While it looks stylish, it dries clothes in half the time of my old dryer, which will help with my electric bill, along with not having to wait forever for one load of clothes to dry before starting another. I definantly recommend this dryer (and the washer that matches it!)

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!
