Answer: 
Compared to the old washer/dryer I had before, my clothes come out less wrinkled. The clothes tend to get wrinkled during the spin cycle of the wash. As there is no center piece in the washer, and the spin cycle is strong and fast, clothes that aren't placed correctly in the wash can get tangled and smashed together in the drum. The dryer does the best it can to get the wrinkles out through the dry. As Read More
Compared to the old washer/dryer I had before, my clothes come out less wrinkled. The clothes tend to get wrinkled during the spin cycle of the wash. As there is no center piece in the washer, and the spin cycle is strong and fast, clothes that aren't placed correctly in the wash can get tangled and smashed together in the drum. The dryer does the best it can to get the wrinkles out through the dry. As long as you pull your clothes out quickly once dry is complete, you should be fine. I think there is also a setting that goes super slow with the intention of removing wrinkles. Read Less

Answer: 
The clothes are dried to long if they come out wrinkled. The drying time is adjustable and there is a WRINKLE CARE option on the dryer settings that we use. It will continue to tumble the clothes for up to 3 hours.

Answer: 
Not very, and it has a wrinkle guard setting if you are not there when the dryer stops. Most of my items were fine. In fact, I did not iron some of my casual shirts that I had to iron with my old dryer.

Not if you push the "wrinkle care" option when setting the dryer cycle. It will make sure the dry continues to tumble periodically until you pull the clothes out.

Answer: 
The reason why reviewers may have had wrinkled clothes would be that they may have had too much in the load and it used 'sensor dry' to dry them. I've found the larger your dryer load where the air cannot circulate properly doesn't allow the dryer to work properly when it's doing it by sensor. If you do get the dryer and you see that your clothes are coming out wrinkled, try taking out a larger item and Read More
The reason why reviewers may have had wrinkled clothes would be that they may have had too much in the load and it used 'sensor dry' to dry them. I've found the larger your dryer load where the air cannot circulate properly doesn't allow the dryer to work properly when it's doing it by sensor. If you do get the dryer and you see that your clothes are coming out wrinkled, try taking out a larger item and giving your cycle a perm press afterwards. (Or just bypass sensor dry all together and do a timed dry! Older dryers without a sensor usually need 1 hour to dry properly. This is also the time needed for most coin-op laundromats, as overstuffed loads need more time or even a quick re-organize by hand in the middle of a cycle. Read Less

Answer: 
Mine came with the opening on the left and hinges on the right. I plan to reverse these, and there are instructions in the manual on how to do it. Seems pretty easy, but they caution that the door is heavy; to block it up or have someone hold it if you plan to take it off and reverse the set up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WOW! This thing has a BRAIN!! My wife and I could only stop and stare as the LG model DLE4870W started to evaluate our load of dirty clothes; make the correct assumptions, choose the water tem. and Spin and Dry functions. Let's say one thing up front: We are loyal LG customers. We own a LG Washer; LG Refrigerator; three LG TVs and now we are the proud owners of an LG Dryer! You can't go wrong with the DLE4870W it has all the basic choices plus Anti-Bacterial; Speed Dry or Air Dry; Temp Control; Wrinkle Dry: ALL with the touch of a button. It has more Informational fields than I could ever mention here. TRY IT!; YOU"LL LIKE IT!! JHerrin November 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very happy with my dryer, too!!! Went in search of a new dryer because mine had gone out. Actually went to look at another dryer, but this one came highly recommended by the sales person. I have been very happy with the performance of the dryer. My clothes do not take near as long to dry as they were before and the dryer runs so quietly! Would definitely buy this product again!! May 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Dryer We bought the matching pair and love both pieces. We waited a few months to rate them to make sure they were as good as we thought they were and they ARE. Dryer is huge, with many settings. The sensor works great and I love the antibacterial setting. The lint trap is easy to clean and all knobs and settings are easy to reach and understand. The set is amazing and I thoroughly enjoy doing laundry these days. I'm so happy we followed the recommendation and reviews to purchase the LG washer and dryer instead of one of the more common brands. Brands that we have had to replace frequently and just don't have the reputation they had generations ago. June 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product had problems from day one. This dryer had a problem from the onset. When all was finally done, the heating element had not been installed properly and the dryer was only getting minimal drying heat. That caused a lot of error codes, but until a repairman laid down on the floor and looked in from the front, did he discover the heater was not hooked up. Since then I am very happy with the dryer. However, this was a frustrating time for me as we had replaced my old washer and dryer because we had company coming. This caused us a problem. Many times I wished I had my old set back! I would recommend this dryer for anyone. Small or large loads are not a problem. June 10, 2013
