Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Dries well

gopher 6/18/2018

Unusual to have a ventless dryer however it does work well to dry clothes as programmed on lots of different cycles. The condensation is routed to the drain not the catchment vessel which is convenient eliminates emptying the tray and nice not to have a vent to the outside to monitor. It does generate quite a bit of heat and some humidity so essential to have the space well vented or perhaps even turn on an exhaust fan during operation. Not sure about long term repair record as Ive only owned for a month or so.

Compact condensing dryer - love it

DeeBee59 4/19/2018

Ive had this dryer for about 3 weeks now. Bought it because it was small and didnt need a dryer vent i have the matching washer too. This is perfect for me. I like that all I need to do is empty the water after drying a load. No worries about fire hazards with this vent-free model. It dries beautifully. Smallish loads but the washer is small too. I still only wash twice a week or so Im single and its all just SO easy I have noticed that fitted sheets tend to ball up and i need to stop the dryer wake the sheet out and restart sometimes several times. Also possibly during a hot humid summer the condenser will emit a bit more humidity than Id like. So far though its been great. These compact models can be pricey. To me theyre a bargain nevertheless.

Great compact dryer

SteveL888 4/7/2018

We bought this dryer because it was one of the few models out there that could fit in our tiny laundry space. The capacity is great for the compact size and theres no need for a vent. The delivery guys said that it takes 4 hours to dry a load but they were dead wrong. Typical drying time is 1 1/2 hours.

It is not working as it should.

Tigerman Paek 3/22/2018

The condensed water did not pump down to drain from the beginning even though the pipe is installed to the household drain. When I contacted the LG repair they said they needed someone to off-load the dryer from the washer before they can fix it. I never expected to spend additional cost like this way for the full function of the machine.

All the features and function of the dryer make it fun and exciting to do laundry and dry your cloths.

JulesT 11/24/2017

Bought 3 of these for apartments. Worked well except one. Took many months and multiple trips by tech before LG agreed to replace under warranty. They likely spent more on the tech than they made in profit plus a lot of wasted time. Ventless feature and size capacity was main reason for purchase over traditional single unit washer/dryer.

This washer has performed very well over the time Ive owned it. It is very quiet and spins clothes very dry.

We just got this dryer to match the washer because we got an extremely lucky deal on the washer. I expected the dryer to take a couple hours to dry a load being ventless. But it dried a normal sized load of clothes in 45 minutes. Thats hardly a concession to not being vented. Great compact dryer

Perfect Dryer for your Small Space

I ordered this unit back in May 2017 and it took about a month for delivery due to availability. It certainly was worth the wait... the unit is easy to use quiet and drys clothes pretty quickly. This is ventless so you have a water tray to empty every couple loads or as frequently as you want no issue at all If your considering this unit I would definitely recommend for you to purchase

Excellent Compact Dryer

Cody Shive 6/1/2017

This is an incredible dryer First it does now have a traditional vent hose which means that you dont have to worry about where it will vent. Instead it uses a condensing system to pull the water out of the hot air and pump it into a reservoir top-left of the dryer or you can attach the supplied hose and hook it to the stand pipe where the washer empties. While the condensing unit accessed through the bottom compartment on the front of the dryer must be cleaned periodically manual states 3-4 times per year or when the condenser light illuminates. The dryer works very well leaving clothes towels sheets and blankets dry in a normal cycle typically about an hour. You can hear the unit pump the water out occasionally as it is drying. One thing this dryer does is periodically reverse the drum direction. It sounds like its stopping then reverses. This does a great job of keeping clothes from lumping together. One design consideration for LG is to think about using higher-contrast lettering on the control panel or to back-light the entire panel. Beneath each selection is the name of the selection Gray background with black lettering. This might be hard for some folks to read without direct light.
