This is not a Dryer it's an expensive paper weight

Bought this dryer 12 months ago worked for about 3 weeks the noticed the drying time taking longer and longer to the point that a simple load is now taking up to 8 hrs to dry....as per all the reviews don't bother with towels or sheets..step back in time and put those on the hills hoist....I am about to contact lg and request a refund it is that bad and I though it would be good as the pigeon
Pair....this reminds me about the Samsung fridge fiasco....Do Not BuY this Dryer Show details

Worst Dryer Ever. LG Q Thin Inverter 8 kg Dryer

Timer keeps resetting with this dryer. After hours in the dryer your Clothes are still not dried. They are still damp. Do not waste your money on this dryer. I certainly would never buy this product again. Show details

If you plan on drying bedding, do not buy this dryer

Your bedding will end up in tight damp balls unless you are there to take the bedding out and untangle it every 10 to 15 min. I have owned other dryers including another heat pump and never had this problem. An expensive mistake Show details

Can't believe it

Had my 5yr old dryer serviced for the 3rd time in five years. After the technicians left today I thought I'd do a small wash and load my dryer. Put it to the normal setting let it run its course and my clothes were damp after a 50min cycle. So I had to start it again to get my clothes dry.
I am so angry at the fact I waited for the who bottom part of the unit which had to be replaced from my old one and its doing the same thing....NOT DRYING my clothes completely.
Im over this Dryer and and im over in dealing with LG. Show details

Disappointed purchase

I was sooo excited to have finally purchased my first dryer ever at the age of 66 . I am extremely disappointed with the function of this dryer . My sheets end up in a tight ball and are damp inside so I have to unravel them and set another cycle. Towels take forever to dry and they are never really dry unless you do several cycles .
Delicates are ok with this dryer.
This was a very expensive purchase and I wish I could return it for a different one that actually works . Show details

Worst Tumble Dryer I've Owned!

I agree with so many of the comments on here.
Drying takes forever, I have 3 loads of washing waiting while it tackles the first load.
Then the big items like sheets come out in a ball so tight I have to wrestle it loose.
Paid so much and I wonder how energy efficient it is if it takes 4 times as long to dry a load???
Will never touch another heat pump dryer! :-(

This dryer needs to "tumble" down a hill

The bad reviews are spot on. I wish I'd read them prior to buying this dryer. It does not dry sheets or towels. Everything is clumped into a tight ball and the dryer rotates the drum in one direction. This is a serious design flaw and I would argue doesn't do at all what it's supposed to do and that's dry... Literally hours and you'll find your sheets tightly wrapped in a balls, smelling damp and burnt at the same time. Show details

Avoid. Can not dry sheets

When drying sheets, they wrap into balls requiring frequent intervention every 15 minutes or so. This dryer is not “fit for purpose” as it can not dry simple items like sheets and they still remain damp in the middle if you do not regularly intervene. Biggest waste of money. Show details

This has to be the worst dryer i have ever bought

To even dry a small load of washing you need to put 2-3 cycles on.
Everything still comes out damp.
Sheets come out in a tight ball.
I love the lg washing machine but stay far far away from this dryer, i bought mine as a display model but still feel like i paid way too much for this piece of rubbish. Show details

Awful. Avoid at all costs

This dryer, rotating in only one direction, does not dry clothes properly when drying with large items such as sheets, bedspreads, towels, etc. everything gets bunched up into a ball and ends up smelling damp.

Further to this, forget trying to dry anything with a strap or tie. They get absolutely ruined due to this same poor design function.

This is the most expensive dryer we have ever purchased, and by far the worst.

Photos show literally how a king size sheet set end up after a cycle in this dryer. Looks like a tightly bundled sausage, cause IT DOES NOT REVERSE! What kind of person designed this? Show details

LG Heat pump 8kg dryer

I am so disappointed with my 8kg LG dryer. Sheets or any other large pieces just go into balls, so do not dry unless you stand by and keep rearranging them! I am so sorry I rushed in and bought a dryer that does not oscillate (reverse tumble) this is a major design flaw! I love my LG washing machine but this dryer was a mistake. Show details

Happy with the dry…except for the sheets

Well everything comes out dry, except for the sheets.

We must be doing something wrong, but can’t figure out what. We now just put the sheets in on their own, in mixed setting. Every thirty minutes or so we go in, undo the tight ball bundle, and then put it back on. Without that it simply doesn’t dry the sheets. We are in Queensland so maybe it is the humidity. We have never used a dryer before, we needed one for apartment living.

Apart from the sheets issue we are really happy with the wash. If anyone can explain the sheet situation we would be ecstatic Show details ·  2

I love the concept of the heat pump dryer but LG really didn’t do their research. Sheets end up like tight footballs from single spin rotation. Dry on the outside and wet in the centre. Endless untangling every 15 minutes. One star is one too many. I want my money back! I’d love an LG rep to get in touch. Chris 0400 888 448.

I've noticed my TD-H803CSW model dryer makes a knocking sound for the entire drying cycle. The dryer is just over 2.5 years old. Appreciate if you can advise how to have this corrected as the noise goes through the house. Thanks.. Peter

Hi Regina, thank you for the prompt response, I have no idea how to rebalance the dryer. However I will read up on it today. Peter

How do you clean this dryer? We had an LG condenser dryer prior to this heat pump model and could clean the removable finned radiator. This dryer only has two removable filters but they don’t capture everything so how can an owner ensure they are not breeding a potential fire trap in the internals of the dryer?
