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.

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

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.
We had a bad experience with our last dryer which was a whirlpool. So we switched brands and went with the LG. It has been fantastic and drys our clothes without the need to constantly check it and re do it. I like the sand shoe drier attachment which comes in handy for my soccer boots. Very quiet and the operating system seems easier to use.

Massive size, works a treat and no wet walls
Purchased from Betta Electrical the first one I picked up and uncovered the cardboard and it was damaged as if it had fallen from a height or hit with a forklift, my local Better Store did not carry this model in stock we had to re-order, anyway they happy reorder a second unit/replacement that was damage free, If you order this type of whitegoods online and get home delivery make sure you inspect the cardboard for signs of damage before signing.
My wife and I never use our clothesline we both work, have two girls who change clothes 10x a da...y and we are just slack, our little Samsung 3.5kg broke down after 10 years and we wanted the bigger dryer to match our 7kg machine, wife always overloaded the little 3.5kg (this bugged me) and generally had to do the load cycles twice to dry everything thoroughly - this overcooked the towels and chewed up the energy bill, so the LG is a blessing its big and pleasing to look at, it automatically lights up on the inside like your fridge so you can see everything. This dryer has heaps of settings but we generally just select "Multi mode" and hit go, this estimates 48 mins to dry but can fluctuate up or down during the cycle as it automatically senses for desired dryness. The lint/dust filter is in a great place, its very easy to access and feels like decent quality, this is the first condenser dryer we have purchased and was unsure of how well they work, but its great we do empty the water out every 2nd load and its kinda fun - (it comes with the plumbing hoses that just hook into your laundry sink if you don't want to do this manually) If I put large a cotton towel mixed with light clothes it will continue to dry until towel is done even though other items dried much sooner.
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?
