Nice quiet dryer with a very large capacity
5 Star Review   By member silly129 - Aug 26, 2008   

Strengths: Large capacity, very quiet, easy to use menu

Weakness: None!

I have been very impressed with this LG 7.3 Cu Ft Electric Dryer. It features a simple menu that consists of a big dial (with lights) and three buttons for optional features. It features 9 cycles, however I really only use the "Normal" cycle to do my everyday laundry. The dryer runs quietly with almost no sound heard in the next room (laundry door closed of course). At the end of the cycle, a pleasant tune plays to let you know that your load is done. My clothes are nice and dry (not scorched) and sheets are never tangled up. I have even been able to dry big blankets in this dryer. The lint filter is located on the bottom lip of the opening. It comes right off and is easy to clean. An important feature for me is the child locking mechanism. You press one of the buttons for three seconds and it locks all the buttons. All the cool lights that this dryer has is an instant attraction for my toddler, so the locking feature is almost a necessity for me.

After 6 months, they unit needed a major repair
1 Star Review   By Red5 on Home Depot - Aug 3, 2008   

I am so disappointed in this dryer! After 2 weeks, the flow sensor said that it was completely clogged. I checked and there was nothing blocking the flow. Even when the service man ran the dryer with out any attachment, it still showed blocked. The service man never figured it out. It started to take a long time for the clothes to dry. For example, it took 2 hours for 6 towels to dry but they couldn’t find anything wrong with the unit. Four months later, it smelled like something burned inside it and the clothes were coming out both hot and wet at the same time. A heating element had burned out. I had the unit for about 6 months and suffered a major component failure. It was supposed to be a good machine but I’ve had nothing but trouble with it.

Great Washer
5 Star Review   By member akm099 - Jul 19, 2008   

Strengths: Really clean clothes! Quiet! Senses load size & uses appropriate amount of water

Weakness: Moisture in rubber lining

This is my first front front loading washer. It is great. It holds lots of laundry, and cleans well. Takes a lot less water than a traditional washer. Would recommend to anyone needing a new washer. LG makes great products.

Loving my LG dryer!
5 Star Review   By member jwallen222 - Jul 13, 2008   

Strengths: Dries quietly, quickly, automatic sensor turns dryer off when clothes are dry, easy to use

Weakness: None so far

I love this dryer. Granted, I've had it for 2 weeks and probably am still in the honeymoon phase. I couldn't be happier with how it runs. Loads often take less than 30 minutes to dry; my largest load took 40 minutes to dry (blanket, sheets, and a towel). I would highly recommend this dryer!! I was advised not to use dryer sheets with this as it will make the automatic sensor deteriorate (I love that the dryer shuts off when the clothes are dry; no wasted energy). I use a fabric softener in my washer and haven't noticed a problem without using dryer sheets.

Works well, dries fast, plays a cute tune when done
4 Star Review   By member deflecto - Mar 30, 2008   

Strengths: Easy to use controls and displays.

Weakness: Needs to be on a pedestal but the pedestals that match it are too expensive.

The dryer really is nice and easy to use. But then, most dryer's are not too complicated either. The only trouble I've had so far was trying to dry a large comforter. I had hoped the sensor on the dryer would work better than on my old, only 5 years old, dryer. The blanket gets balled up and the outer edges get dry so the dryer thinks it's done. But when the comforter is removed, it is still wet in the center. Not a big deal, but still... This is a new experience for me to use a front loader. I like it, but at just over 6' tall, it's a pain in the back. I wanted to get the matching pedestal but at roughly $150, on sale, it was just too expensive. So I built my own for the price of a sheet of plywood, some screws, and a few 2x4's.

Best Buy.....
5 Star Review   By TDale on Home Depot - Mar 26, 2008   

I did my research and looked at all the units and this one has all the bells and whistles. It works effortlessly, it has so many nice features that the others did not think about. The warranty is standard and I bought the ESP for 4 years for $99. I cannot believe how quiet this unit runs. Glad I bought LG and you will be too....

DLE5955W Electric Dryer
4 Star Review   By member sunrise2978 - Mar 19, 2008   

Strengths: I like the stainless steel drum, easy access filter that located on front. love the music that played every time the dryer on and off. The performance is fine, Dried towels in 1 hour, same as jeans.

Weakness: After use it more than a month and a half, thus far I don't have any complaint at all.

What can I say, Drier is a dryer, all brands do the same kinda of work. The pedestal help a lot. I'm 5'1 but without the pedestal I probably hurt my back :-) My husband think I paid too much for this dryer ($639 after 20% Amex discount)from home depot in January, I slightly agreed because it's only a dryer but I wanted to match my washing machine, that's the only reason I bought it.

Love this Dryer!
5 Star Review   By FunShopper on Home Depot - Jan 5, 2008   

After months of looking and wishing, we bought this dryer (and matching washer) during the appliance sell, so we got a great price on them both. This dryer has an abundant amount of extras and allows the user to have more control over the cycles and drying time. The controls and electronic display are very informative and also user friendly. This large dryer is very quiet. LG is highly rated, a very important factor before we purchased. This is a great buy - you won't be disappointed.
