out of 5
I received this dryer after ordering a less expensive model. Because the other was on backorder during holiday time, I received this one in its place.
I'm very satisfied with my purchase. The most amazing thing about this clothes dryer is that it is extremely fast. Extremely fast. For a full load from the washing machine, it takes about thirty five minutes to dry. For once in my life the washer and dryer finish their cycles at about the same time. This is an amazing time saver on days where there is a great deal of laundry to do.
I like the streamlined look of the machine and the solid construction. It is very quiet both the movement of the clothes within the drum as well as the rattling of the machine parts. Unlike other dryers I have owned, this one doesn't vibrate across the floor or thunk when the clothes turn around. Instead of an abrasive honk at the end of a dry cycle like I'm accustomed to, this machine plays a little melody. While it's more pleasant than the honk and doesn't startle the kids as much, I find it eerie.
Because of the kids, I love the safety lock on the control panel so there is no chance of them getting hurt in the machine while playing hide and seek.
I only have two complaints. The first is that, when the exhaust vent is installed, the machine sticks out quite a bit farther than I had reckoned on. With my limited space, this keeps the door to the laundry room from being completely opened. Second, my machine arrived with only three leveling legs. Because of the tilt to all my floors (and especially the laundry room) I really needed all four. LG was great about sending a replacement, but it would have been even better to have it work right away.
