Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

I was unable to by-pass the condenser reservoir. I had to empty it after every dryer load. Difficult for short person to handle the reservoir tray. This model should have the ability to by-pass the reservoir

LG Dryer

Look elsewhere or invest in a clothing line.

John Buse 7/5/2019

I like my LG dryer but the corner of the lint filter keeps melting creating an edge which twists and rips my clothing. This seems to be an issue many people are having but one which LG isnt responding to. I certainly wont be buying another LG again if I have to buy a replacement part every couple of months just so my clothes wont get ruined. I would stay away from LG dryers until this issue is resolved. Im rating this dryer as poor because it is destroying my clothes.

So far so good---however

artsb2012 6/19/2019

Bought this machine in the last month or so... so it is still new. We are still learning and experimenting with the drying cycles learnimg how not to roast the load. We have taken clothes out of the dryer more than a few times before the dry cycle was complete. Weve read there is a cool-down cycle for five minutes before the machine stops however we often pull out laundry as much as 15 minutes before it would have stopped. And we will keep going back to the manual.

Perfect Dryer for my laundry space

Bruce846 6/12/2019

This unit is very nicely made with intuitive settings/controls and the condensing feature saved me a lot of venting costs. It does put some heat into the house and I set it up to pump into the drain.

Journey81 5/10/2019

Have owned this dryer for over a month. Use every day. Pros: clothes come out dry dont have to use outside venting that needed frequent cleaning sufficient capacity many drying options has lots of features touch controls work well stainless steel drum looks solid light inside is useful drying cycle if not as short as traditional dryer is acceptable choice of emptying water tank by hand or through included hose directly into the drain. Cons: generates a lot of heat wouldnt call it loud but is not super quiet either.

Great compact dryer

patty321 5/7/2019

I havent had my dryer too long but so far I am very pleased with it Works so much better than my old ventless dryer For condo/apartment dwellers that need a ventless dryer this is working great for me. So easy to use and to empty the water tank. My clothes are drying relatively quickly similar to many high efficiency full size dryers that Ive used. I tend to wash/dry smaller loads avoid overloading the dryer and sometimes remove articles prior to over-drying them. My towels are drying quickly and thoroughly. All in all I am very happy with my purchase

Laundry days have never been better

CToliver 3/31/2019

It has just been a few weeks but so far I am happy with this purchase. I needed a ventless dryer for my condo. I had to research and search to find a stackable washer and dryer that met my needs. Reviews on ventless dryers were mixed but I had no choice. When I found the right pair I had to wait a month to get it. On delivery day the tecnician almost didnt install it because he didnt think it came with a stacking kit. It does I insisted. Its in the box with the dryer. All that to say I finally got to do my laundry. I was initially intimidated by all the bells and whistles. It literally sings to you when done. I took the time to read the instructions. Best tip. Use the prelabeled settings. They work like a charm. Clothes are ckean and dry. Set it. Forget it. Til you hear the music that is.

Cute

Rooey 9/20/2018

I havent had this dryer very long but so far so good. I had wanted to hook it up to the washer outlet but it seems I need a plumber to help do that so Ive been emptying the drawer with the water in it. The clothes get dry on the cotton setting and I havent tried most of the others yet. I want to know if I can put it on a platform so the heat it puts out can be directed somewhere. Much safer than the badly vented dryer I had previously.

Dries well

gopher 6/18/2018

Unusual to have a ventless dryer however it does work well to dry clothes as programmed on lots of different cycles. The condensation is routed to the drain not the catchment vessel which is convenient eliminates emptying the tray and nice not to have a vent to the outside to monitor. It does generate quite a bit of heat and some humidity so essential to have the space well vented or perhaps even turn on an exhaust fan during operation. Not sure about long term repair record as Ive only owned for a month or so.

Compact condensing dryer - love it

DeeBee59 4/19/2018

Ive had this dryer for about 3 weeks now. Bought it because it was small and didnt need a dryer vent i have the matching washer too. This is perfect for me. I like that all I need to do is empty the water after drying a load. No worries about fire hazards with this vent-free model. It dries beautifully. Smallish loads but the washer is small too. I still only wash twice a week or so Im single and its all just SO easy I have noticed that fitted sheets tend to ball up and i need to stop the dryer wake the sheet out and restart sometimes several times. Also possibly during a hot humid summer the condenser will emit a bit more humidity than Id like. So far though its been great. These compact models can be pricey. To me theyre a bargain nevertheless.

Great compact dryer

SteveL888 4/7/2018

We bought this dryer because it was one of the few models out there that could fit in our tiny laundry space. The capacity is great for the compact size and theres no need for a vent. The delivery guys said that it takes 4 hours to dry a load but they were dead wrong. Typical drying time is 1 1/2 hours.

It is not working as it should.

Tigerman Paek 3/22/2018

The condensed water did not pump down to drain from the beginning even though the pipe is installed to the household drain. When I contacted the LG repair they said they needed someone to off-load the dryer from the washer before they can fix it. I never expected to spend additional cost like this way for the full function of the machine.

I originally purchased a different brand of dryer because it was on sale but it wouldnt fit through the doorway to the back room.What a stroke of good fortune for me I LOVE the LG compact dryer. It has plenty of roomit does a beautiful jobI love the fact that its energy efficient and it even plays a little song at the end.

Great Functions and Features

The Tiburcios 2/2/2018

I purchased this dryer about a month ago and Im very satisfy with the look and performance of the dryer. All the features and function of the dryer make it fun and exciting to do laundry and dry your cloths. If I had a suggestion about the appliance I would had prefer if it was easier to put your desire time rather then choosing a pre-selection to dry my clothes.
