Worst dryer ever- BIG mistake
- Time to dry- never accurate and means nothing as clothes are never dry enough.
- takes way too long to dry and clothes are never satisfactory dry- almost damp every single time. i need to put them on the rack afterward
- huge consumption of energy for nothing
- too expensive
- doesn't do the job and i am not even talking about sheets or towels. even normal shirts.

Absolutely useless waste of money!
What a useless machine! Where do I start... Everything you put into it ends up rolled into a ball with the outside crisp and the inside soaking wet!
The displayed time till dry is NEVER accurate and the dryer finishes constantly with the clothes still wet.
The energy consumption is through the roof! Should have been more cared about buying a machine with only a 2 star energy rating.
It just seems like LG didn’t even bother product testing this one. Absolute hunk of junk! Wouldn’t even give it 1 star if I had the choice.

An Expensive Paper Weight!
The machine never turns off! If you don't switch it off it will continue running. NFC Tag on feature doesn’t work. Customer Service team are no better who couldn’t organise a shower in a rainstorm! My family have been without a dryer for a month now. Lg have sent out numerous repairmen who consistently fail to repair this paper weight! Which has now leaked water all over the Laundry Floor. I demand to be reimbursed for the dryer and the extended warranty that I paid for. I have given you ample amount of opportunities to repair the dryer and now I am done. “Word of Warning” Do Not even think about sending another person to my home again unless it’s to collect the piece of junk and take it to the tip.

Lg condenser dryer
Agreed with the other lady, worst dryer,does not dry clothes or bed sheets properly,wish I never bought, same as the lg washing machine, too,nearly 3000 for both, wish I never bought
Worst dryer ever owned
This dryer cost over $1000 at Coogans 5 months ago. Condensor function is great, no damp walls anymore. But that is where it stops. We downloaded the super dry cycle because the dryer was leaving the laundry damp. This sort of worked, but meant we had to run a load of laundry for 2:05 hours... not really economical. We have strictly maintained the dryer as per the manual, cleaning filter & emptying tank after each cycle & cleaning condensor 3 monthly. In the last 3 months, it stops spinning when it heats up (after about 20mins) & makes an awful noise. I have to stop the machine, wait til it cools, then restart the cycle again. Product does not work.

Regretful buy big mistake
First 12 months worked perfect, then clothes seemed damp, then I realized they are too damp to be coming out of the dryer, I would only put light underwear in and still damp. it is currently at the repair workshop under warranty.

I have just purchased one of these, after considering the reviews which say "does not dry clothes properly" and "cant dry sheets". I decided that these reviews were probably not accurate (my last dryer which cost half as much struggled with sheets, and Ive found reviews for other brands which say the same), so I thought maybe that it was somewhat normal performance. I also found other reviews which said it was fine, and other users should RTFM. Anyway my first test was drying a duna cover and a couple of sheets.
I put the dryer in 'bulky item...s' mode with the main knob, changed nothing else and let it run. The in built condenser worked perfectly, and the drain kit worked so all the water removed from the load went straight down the sink drain. The room did not become at all humid. The dryer was quiet. The auto timer function guessed slightly wrong initially, but the estimation updated as it ran becoming more accurate over time. The bulky item mode prevented the sheets balling up and everything dried quite well. Much better than what I was used to in the dryer it replaced. When I pulled the items out I thought they were slightly damp but I hung them over a line in the laundry to check and 20 seconds after they had been out of the dryer I would say all items were perfectly dry. I think the not "over drying" or "under drying" claims are true. All in all Im pleased to report this dryer works really well, has a nice user interface and I would recommend it. Dont believe the negative reviews on here, I found them to be completely inaccurate.

Works sort of ok, drum size misleading
Has issues with drying fitted shets, has to be in there alot longer than necessary (Queen sized sheets) works ok for first 6months then issues arise. Not overly happy with product, no point in using the water reservoir, use the hose that comes with as water that comes out from drying can be alot and overflow it

Large items wrap up into a damp ball
Large items like sheets or blankets wrap themselves into a ball and then don't dry properly. It is a major flaw with this machine (and the only flaw I can think of). Our previous Miele heat pump dryer did not have this problem, and we dry a LOT of sheets.
LG obviously know about the issue, and can't or won't solve the problem because the manual actually mentions you should pull out the sheets and un-ball them: "When drying a single bulky item, it may help to pause the cycle once or twice and rearrange the item to unwrap and expose any damp are...as." Yeah well my recommendation "When drying bulky items, it may help to have purchased a different product instead of this one". To be fair, anything else dries very nicely. But if other vendors can make machines that can dry sheets properly, then this machine should have been able to as well. Maybe there is some patent that LG don't want to pay for. But drying big items just DOES NOT WORK in this machine.
Does exactly what it says.....
Love the fact it has the flexibility of the built in water tray, and it’s location is perfect (where a laundry detergent draw would go on a washing machine) such a great idea, means you don’t have to bend down and lift a heavy water container like you have to on most with this feature.
Love that it’s sensor as that saves on the power bill also.
Overall happy customer here

Does Dry sheets
I have to say that I am extremely disappointed with this dryer.
You cannot dry sheets or large items like towels in it very well. After roughly 2 minutes they just turn into a ball and take for ever to dry.
I spoke with LG and they just advised me that it wasn't a design fault, I just had to remove the sheets periodically and put them back in the dry. It took 3 hours to dry a set of queen bed sheets, my old dryer would take 1 hour.
Very poor LG, expect better from from a company of your quality.
Do not buy this dryer if you need to dry a lot of sheets.

I bought this dryer 7 months ago and I absolutely love it. Dries quickly and I didn't have any issues with sheets, like other people mentioned in other reviews. Quiet. Easy to use. No issues whatsoever. Very happy with my purchase. Totally recommend.

Bought this dryer in April to replace the old vented one that we had. So far so good!
No wet walls (unlike with vented one), and the clothes dry perfectly. The machine seems to sense the moisture levels and adjusts its time accordingly so the clothes are never over dried. I do sort my clothes into groups before drying. I’m sure this helps in the drying process. The rack is great! I accidentally got my slippers wet. 20 minutes on the rack and they were dry again. The TAG function is convenient especially if you want a different additional programme. Once the clothes are dry you gets cheery little tune just to let you know. So far I am very pleased.

Compared to a Bosch dryer which I used for the past three years, I am much more satisfied with this product. It does not over-dry your clothes. It is really fast in drying. You can really rely on the dryer’s different settings as it does what you want it to do. Really happy with this dryer.
Rubbish Rubbish Rubbish
LG have really covered the butts this time. It won't dry sheets and the manual states you must interrupt the cycle once or twice to unravel the sheet so they can dry. Also if you clothes don't dry properly, it states in the manual you must have the equivalent to 10 bath towel in each load. I have spoken to LG numerous occasions and they will not budge, it is a design fault and they will not accept any responsibility. "It says in the manual, that these things will happen"
Questions & Answers
this is hard everyone seems to have a different reason to give it a bad review or good review. Balling seems to be the main issue. with sheets not drying.
Hi, is it possible to change the door over to hinge on the left side? I read somewhere that there might be a kit available for this. Also, does this model have a reverse tumble action?
My dryer keeps beeping no matter what cycle I have it on? Any suggestions?
