What's worse than pulling clothes out of the dryer and finding they're still damp? Our Sensor Dry system measures the moisture levels during the cycle and automatically adjusts the drying time, to help ensure you get dry laundry every time.

Just set and go

Our NFC Tag-On lets you download new cycles to your LG washer & dryer. Download the LG Smart ThinQ app to your Android smart device, select the cycle & tag' the appliance. From one-touch cycle options that help choose the right setting to answering questions, LG puts simpler & smarter laundry in the palm of your hand.

Not what I expected

I bought this with a washer/dyer stackable for a small area. The dryer is a great size but does not measure up for me. My previous dryer was an LG and performed wonderfully.The problem with this one is, lack of options control on the dryer temps. This dryer runs extremely hot. I use it mainly for sheets and towels and am concerned about how much life will be left in them drying at hot temps.I am playing around with the controls and find I can use Manual or Mixed Fabrics to get a lower setting.Another flaw is that the sheets tend to ball up. After about 20 minutes I have to go and separate them no matter how I place them in the dryer.I now dry the towels in one batch and the sheets in the other (they still ball up).On the upside the condenser tube goes directly into the drain eliminating the water reservoir.

Would know product was damaged during shipping and LG and Home Depot are working on getting new dryer to us. This was 4 weeks ago and itÕs been a hassle and difficult. LG has been great with customer service but between Home Depot and LG serious issues on speed of accepting who should replace and promptness. In the meantime we have no dryer and wonÕt be getting one Until supposedly end of this week.

I bought this a few weeks ago from Home Depot and it has performed very well as a ventless dryer. It fits very well in the restricted space I have available where there is no vent to the outside. It does generate some heat but it drys well on all the many supplied settings. It also allows for some customization, such as level of drying heat, with each setting and the amount of water it collects in the reservoir is quite minimal.

Lint tray

Love the dryer except the lint try is flawed!!!!! Every 3 months I have to remove the lint try holder to get the lint removed that is stuck from the tray going up and down each time you clean it. At first the edges we thought were melting but in fact the stick up because lint builds up below. I won't buy another LG dryer till they change the tray design since I am tired after 5+ years of cleaning the tray every 3 months.

Works well, as advertised

I've had this dryer a month, and there have been no problems. I switched from a conventional ducted dryer because my vent runs to the roof, and it keeps getting clogged with lint. The dryer is nice and quiet, but it does blow a small amount of heat out thru the bottom front of the unit. This is great for the winter, and helps heat the house, but not so good when the A/C is running. The moisture sensor keeps the dryer running longer than needed, so I have to keep setting it on Less Dry. The lint trap does a good job and I haven't seen any lint floating around on the floor. Cleaning the lint trap after every load is a must. Instead of a loud irritating buzz when the dryer is finished, there is a nice melody with a high, low, or off control. The removed water is run to the washer drain, so no problem there. The drum is smaller than a conventional unit, and it takes a little longer to dry the clothes, but the heat pump is efficient, with the electric bill running the same as the last 3 years for this same month. Best of all, no more trips to the roof to unclog the vent.
