LG DLG4871W Reviews & Ratings

DLG4871W 27" 7.3 cu. ft. Gas Dryer With SmartDiagnosis, Sensor Dry System, Electronic Control Panel, Dual LED Display, and Dial-A-Cycle in White is rated 4.7895 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievably low price! I love the awesome service provided by AC. This website was the best website I ever dealt with. The dryer they sold me was top of line. Not sure how they offered it to me at such a low price. No one on the net was able to come close to the price they had on their website. I would recommend them to all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This dryer does NOT give you full control! At a superficial glance, this is a nice-looking machine. And it doesn't do a bad job of getting your clothes dry. However, my biggest complaint is that it does NOT give you full control! You cannot set the dryer sensor level and temperature independently to whatever you want. You must choose from their pre-selected combinations. This is unforgivable. Dryers made 20 years ago let you set these parameters to whatever you want. But this brand new LG dryer which probably costs double what you spent on your last one is not capable of doing what your twenty year old dryer could do. That's an absolute deal-breaker for me. I will not buy LG products in the future unless I can confirm that they give the customer full control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waited a Lifetime The dryer capacity accommodates large quilts/comforters and large loads with room to spare. Drying time is less than any of my other dryers over the past 43 years and this translates to excellent value. Dry times are accurate and good variety of drying options are available. Clothes come out with little or no wrinkles. Filter screen is easy to clean and access. Catchy tune plays when clothes are dry. Overall dryer size was no larger than old, basic dryer. Look forward to years and years of quality clothes drying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the styling and features of this dryer. Bought this dryer last month based on consumer reviews and so far, so good. Love the look of the dryer and have received many compliments on the styling. Still getting used to the various settings - the rack feature is a plus for drying clunky items (e.g. shoes, bulky backpacks, etc.). Sometimes clothes, particularly cotton, come out a little more wrinkled than I like, but I think it's because I didn't select the correct settings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Sensor Dryer We purchased this dryer with our LG washer 10 months ago. We are very happy with this large capacity dryer's performance. The Dual LED control panel is easy to read and flows from left to right. The regular Sensor Dry feature and function options have prevented us from overdrying. Really like having so many drying options. It is most helpful that we are reminded of cleaning the lint trap at the beginning of each drying cycle too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dryer! I have to mention that we also bought the 4870C washer because clothes are very dry coming out of the wash as opposed to those coming out of our old agitator-style washing machine. So, the drying time is greatly reduced and I love the musical tune that plays to let me know when they are ready as opposed to the old buzzer that horrified me. Super fast and efficient! Love the different settings too to protect "shrinkables!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely machine, sadly didn't need to buy one... We bought this to replace an 8-9 yr old GE Profile machine also made by LG. It matched our washer. We had roof work done. They changed the vent hood. They put on a squirrel protection screen. After a year, it became solid matted with lint. As it was on the roof, no one knew. The dryer started to not dry. We checked the vertical outflow pipe. Clean. So we presumed it was the dryer and instead of hundreds of dollars of repair potential, we invested in this new unit. After installing, the unit's automatic sensors indicated a blockage. Calling in the roofer resolved the issue. But now we've invested and given away a perfectly good dryer... Lesson learned. No easy answer either. No way to check a twenty foot high roof vent. Second floor laundry... Seems great and we will get an extended warranty. Our experience is that they do pay for themselves before five years are elapsed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like the Custom setting, the best. The dryer has lots of setting to choose from, even though I haven't had a lot of different laundry to dry, just towels, whites, jeans, permanent press. the dials are great to adjust temp, time and an alarm to let me know they are done. The only thing I don't like, like many houses the washer is on the right and the dryer on the left, I wish we could have ordered the door to the dryer to open the other way.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.
How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covegrey.
How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.
Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.
What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.
Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.
May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covegrey product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.
Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
When does my warranty start?
Depending on the type of coverage you own, an extended warranty begins at the conclusion of the shortest portion of the manufacturer’s warranty. If the manufacturer’s warranty was 90 day labor and 1 year parts, the extended warranty would begin on the 91st day and continue for the duration of the warranty period. All replacement, commercial and accidental plans begin on the date of purchase.
Why does my plan say "under $1000"?
Some plans carry a dollar value on them. This means that your product's purchase price, excluding tax, delivery and accessories is below the listed price on the contract. It's simply a classification based on the price of purchase of the product under warranty.
What does an accidental plan cover?
If you have added Accidental Coverage to your plan, this plan shall cover unintentional damages as a result of: impact, liquid damage or unintentional physical damage. Accidental Coverage does not cover intentional damages of any kind to the covered product or losses due to theft. Accidental Coverage does not cover willful damage, misuse, damage due to neglect, drops over 6 feet, fire damage or full immersion in water.

Accidental Coverage does not cover damage caused by the use of a product in a way the manufacturer never intended. Coverage for this plan shall begin 30 days after the date of purchase of the covered product.
Is my service plan worldwide?
All plans carry a worldwide option at no additional charge. Contact a sales professional for further details.
Who do I contact with further questions?
Please contact a sales professional at 1-800-299-9470.
