The best!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] LG has done it with this ventless dryer. This dryer is the best one I have ever owned. I’m 70. The feature letting the drum stop and then reposition the clothes makes my dry time faster. My clothes come out soft and with no wrinkles. My only complaint is that LG makes only a compact ventless dryer. (See pic) I call it Shorty!

    Great Compact Dryer
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] They no vent feature was why I selected it for my mobile home. It works great with minimum care and upkeep. After one year, an issue has developed apparently due to overheat or control unit problem. The trump quits turning, however, turning off for a few minutes and restarting, and it works again. Overall.... I am happy with it...

      Worst Not Drying Dryer
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought it almost a year ago. It took 4-6 hours to dry a standard load. The water is leaking out from dryer and broke my wooden flooring and side of my door.

        I ordered this dryer because my new place didn't have a vent to the outside. I had considered getting a lint catcher for the end of the exhaust of a vented dryer but decided against it, because I didn't want to have to clean that out every cycle since its in the attic. So I got this Ventless dryer and its been awesome. I have it in a laundry closet in the main hallway. I do keep the doors open when it runs, but it doesn't seem to generate so much hit that I couldn't close the doors. After each cycle I dump the water tray and clean the lent trap, which takes less than a minute for both. The cycle is a bit longer than a normal dryer, by about 10-20 minutes, but the value makes up for it. The alternative was cut a hole in my house for an outside vent or try this dryer. I made the right decision. Also the lint trap is very well built and seems to catch all the lint with nothing left in the compartment that holds it. I would definitely recommend this dryer.

          Perfect size and features
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Purchased for a small area in a Condo. Purchased the Washer/Dryer combination that was stackable. It is stable and does a beautiful job drying clothes without an external vent. Highly Recommended.

              I purchased this set on line and Home Depot had it delivered and installed. I've only had the washer and dryer for a month but so far it's been performing with flying colors, only issue that I have is that when washer goes in to spin cycle it seems to vibrate a bit more then I was expecting, even dropped a bottle of detergent that I had sitting on top of the edge

              Not what I expected
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this with a washer/dyer stackable for a small area. The dryer is a great size but does not measure up for me. My previous dryer was an LG and performed wonderfully. The problem with this one is, lack of options control on the dryer temps. This dryer runs extremely hot. I use it mainly for sheets and towels and am concerned about how much life will be left in them drying at hot temps. I am playing around with the controls and find I can use Manual or Mixed Fabrics to get a lower setting. Another flaw is that the sheets tend to ball up. After about 20 minutes I have to go and separate them no matter how I place them in the dryer. I now dry the towels in one batch and the sheets in the other (they still ball up). On the upside the condenser tube goes directly into the drain eliminating the water reservoir.

                Don’t waste your hard-earned money. I’m very disappointed with this dryer. I’ve had this dryer for 10 days and it’s given me nothing but grief. I’m surprised to see so many good reviews on here. I’ve had nothing but bad luck with this dryer. I’m wondering if these reviews are fake. Problems: • Large items like sheets and blankets roll up into a ball and don’t dry. The outside of the ball dries, while the inside stays wet and wrinkled! After I open the dryer, pull the ball apart, and start the dryer up again, they roll back into a ball in about ONE minute. I’m not joking. One. Minute. • It takes a very long time to dry anything. Even little baby clothes take forever. • The medium and low heat settings don’t work. Don’t bother with them. Everything has to be set to high, even if the fabric care label says tumble dry low or medium. Otherwise, clothes don’t dry. • There are too many unnecessary, complicated settings. You have to read the manual to understand what each setting does. I’ve experimented with several settings, and none of them seem to make sense or be useful. • You can’t set it for short, simple dry cycles. I wanted to dry a damp item for 15 minutes. Nope, you can’t do 15 minutes. The machine wags its finger at you if you try (it literally beeps at you if you try). • The time delay dry feature is a minimum of three hours. The other day, I wanted to delay start by an hour. Nope. Again, it wags its reproachful finger at you if you try to set the delayed dry to less than 3 hours. Yes, I read through the manual. It was useless. Yes, I’m following all the proper steps to clean out the lint dryer, empty the water reservoir, etc. But these steps don’t address my issues. I wish I’d spent a little extra money on a different brand. I paid nearly $1000 for it after taxes and delivery fees. Such a waste!

                  I needed a washer and dryer that would fit into a space of about 28 inches deep and 25 inches wide. This is hands down one of the best units I could have purchased. I have a family of 5 and the laundry is constantly going. I needed something that would handle everything I could throw at it. This unit does exactly that. I am a second floor condo unit. I do not have a dryer vent pipe and really didn't want to deal with putting one in. The unit is stacked (the stacking kit comes with the dryer) and we drain the dryer condensation through the drain pipe. Some people are concerned the drying time is longer with these condensation units however I find the drying time very comparable to a full-size unit. With the exception of drawing water, the washer is very quiet. Regular size washing pods are too much for these little guys. I have done a few loads and find it's simply too much detergent. Now, I place a tablespoon of H.E. detergent in the plastic cup that comes with the laundry soap, and I throw the whole cup in the washing machine. Cup comes out clean and it's the right amount of detergent for this unit. It works perfectly! I don't have the doors back on the closet yet and I can barely hear either the washer or dryer. They are very pretty to look at. My previous Unified washer/dryer leaked while we were away and caused significant damage to the unit below us. So we placed the new LG units into a compact metal drip pan made specifically for this size. We also added a flood stop unit to the faucets to ensure there is never an accidental flooding issue if we are away. Accidents happen. I try and be prepared. The units are expensive, however, if you are looking for a small unit for a small space, these are the units for you.
