Well-built and poor user controls
from Littleton, CO, United States
Comments about LG 9.0 Cu. Ft. Electric Dryer w/ Steam Cycles - White:
Why does a dryer of this price caliber claim in the owner's manual to have an "...illuminated control panel" (p. 11) when it doesn't? It is almost impossible to read and to set the functions without a flashlight! If LG wanted to go cheap they could have simply used a light panel with dark labels! The fact that a later model has an LED display is proof that this model is poorly designed, and the online LG image misrepresents the display as clearly readable. IT IS NOT! I rate this machine "average" because in spite of this major user shortcoming it seems to be well built, easy to install, runs smoothly and does a fine job...sad that LG skimped on the most important user aspect of the machine.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Overall great product
By Mom of Twins
from Des Moines, IA, United States
I got this for Christmas. While that might not seem like a great present when it cuts the number of laundry loads in half, uses less water and dries faster without needing to dry on a hot setting it is the best Christmas ever. Absolutely love it. Now I don't mind doing laundry. And we are using way less detergent and shout to get the stains out of our boys clothes
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

works great so far (6 months) handles the clothes for our family of 6 children with one on the way with ease. only thing missing is a maid to keep it running while we homeschool the children :)

Lots of features - doesn't dry
from Arlington, VA, United States
I just contacted support regarding this dryer. It was leaving lots of loads damp. We did troubleshooting and nothing was wrong. I was then told to use Time Dry for mixed loads. Basically, the message was that the sensor is over sensitive and senses dry items in mixed loads, and shuts the cycle down. All these extra sensors, and the dryer is dumb.
Great results. One improvement would be to light the menu customization titles. Hard to see in my laundry room.

The steam gave us some trouble in the vent during the winter but since then it has been fine. It's just too much hot air entering to the cold and affecting the vent but not breaking it. We love this dryer and it always does an awesome job. It senses when the clothes need more time or less and adjusts appropriately. We would definitely buy this model again.

Superior in every sense of the word
from Monterey, CA, USA
Awesome dryer, gets you a nice even dry across large loads. Great features, and a great investment.
Excellent Value for your Investment
The dryer is simple to operate, has wider capacity to hold more clothes and the clothes are evenly dried. Simply love the features and easy to use capabilities of the product. Great value for the investment.
Owned for 3 Months
from Glendale, AZ. USA
We selected an LG dryer because we have had excellent performance from other LG products we own. We have an LG Kimchi chest freezer that is over 20 years old with no maintenance required. We have owned the LG large capacity dryer for only 3 months so our experiences are time limited. The first problem we encountered was one of. the screws holding the door on would not come loose. The door therefore could not be reversed. On the fourth technician visit the technician was excellent, not average like the first three, and the screw was removed and the door reversed. The one problem is the control settings panel IS NOT BACK LIT even with the power on!! It is therefore close to impossible to read and make changes in the variable settings. And the auto selected variables, for the preset auto cycle types, is shown with a very bright back lighting which makes reading the other selections even harder to see. I don't understand how LG could make such an obvious mistake...... a very difficult to see, read, and therefore use control panel ?? This problem is the reason I am giving a "4" for features and value.
Nice matching dryer to the heavy duty washer
Huge dryer....can almost fit the prius inside.,but then realized i could not. Time will tell if it was worth the extra $$
