Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this Dryer! I bought this dryer because of its large capacity. I can now dry my comforters since there is plenty of room. This dryer is also efficient. The last dryer I had would take about 80 minutes to dry the laundry. This dryer takes about 20-30 minutes. That is also due to the fact that I bought the 5.1 large capacity washer that matches the dryer. The clothes come out of the washer damp instead of dripping with water. This dryer saves me time and energy! I will probably never use all of the preset dryer options, but I'm glad I have a lot of options to choose from! I can also choose my own options and save it for future use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Tech - Well Designed Machine This is our second time purchasing an LG washer/dryer set. We just moved to a new house. We decided to sell our 6 year old LG set with the house we sold, so that we could purchase a new LG set for our new home. We are so glad to see the new features and improvements on the new machines. WOW, they are BIG. Wow, they are Quiet. The dryer lint filter screen is AMAZING and efficient. We are very satisfied with our purchase. Pricey? Yes, but more than worth it. As one of our favorite Christian comedians said in his act ... " Happy Wife - Happy Life ". You cannot put a price on happiness !! Life is Good

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect mate for the matching Mega Washer This dryer not only handles our biggest loads but it is gentle enough for items which in other machines were left wrinkled when dry. The features are many, like the matching washer, it is quiet with pleasant musical cues instead of jarring buzzers or loud beeps. The best part is the way it handles drying with so many options which work so well. My husband was so impressed by it that he vies for the opportunity to do laundry! It is a great looking machine, too. Sitting next to the matching washer it gives the laundry room a designer look. What is not to love? Oh, and the laundry never smelled cleaner or fresher. The steam feature is fabulous. I really can't say enough good things about it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well-built and poor user controls Why does a dryer of this price caliber claim in the owner's manual to have an "...illuminated control panel" (p. 11) when it doesn't? It is almost impossible to read and to set the functions without a flashlight! If LG wanted to go cheap they could have simply used a light panel with dark labels! The fact that a later model has an LED display is proof that this model is poorly designed, and the online LG image misrepresents the display as clearly readable. IT IS NOT! I rate this machine "average" because in spite of this major user shortcoming it seems to be well built, easy to install, runs smoothly and does a fine job...sad that LG skimped on the most important user aspect of the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER I had planned to replace only my 25 year-old washing machine, but during the research phase decided to go ahead and get the matching dryer. I'm VERY glad that I did. I like that there are a lot of pre-programmed "cycles" and also that I can adjust them for more or less heat/dryness etc. The sensor-dry feature is GREAT. I don't have to worry that I've guessed too much or too little drying time. I like the extra-large capacity. Queen-size bedding has room to tumble and dry without having damp spots left in the middle. The lint filter is very convenient to use and I like that it is enclosed, but easy to open and clean out. This dryer runs very quietly and I haven't had any vibration issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Are you kidding me? OMG! I'm in seventh heaven. I had a old dryer that I had to divide loads. Just to get our clothes dry. Now, I can take my king comforter, wash it, then just toss it in dryer. And Voila, its dried. It's so big my two 12 year old grand daughters can get in it. (not recommended, but have pictures). And the settings are great. You can let your dryer decide what to do or you can custom it to do what you'd like. Our electric bill went down this month. Can't sum up in words how it changed my routines. Oh one more thing. It's so cool looking. Everyone comments as they pass by my laundry room!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy for the features! We were really excited for the steam features of this dryer. Sadly, they don't work as promised. My husband did the Fresh Steam on 3 pairs of khakis and they came out very wrinkled; way worse than going in. This happens on his work shirts too and everything else we tried it with. Plus, you always end up with a puddle of water under the front, which is "normal for this feature" if you read the manual. You can't change the temperature level on any of the settings, and "normal dry level" always leaves clothes damp. The only good thing is the capacity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Dryer This dryer is the fastest we have ever dried our cloths. The extra size tub (almost twice the size of the washer) allows excellent air circulation around the cloths. I have checked the dryer several times thinking it still had time on the cycle only to find the cloths already dry. The dryer is not the bottleneck it used to be with my old set. Love it. As with any dryer, large blankets will occasionally need to be untwisted to facilitate drying but the drying time is still much quicker. The light in the unit (and the washer) are a good feature too.
