Big time saver

Do laundry a little less often. With 7.3 cubic feet of capacity, this dryer handles really large loads. Saving you time and energy.


Get wise

If you ever experience an issue with your LG dryer, you don't have to worry. The SmartDiagnosis feature helps the service center diagnose problems over the phone, or with a simple app on your smart phone, helping you minimize costly, inconvenient service calls.


Really dry clothes

What's worse than pulling clothes out of the dryer and finding they're still damp" Our Sensor Dry system measures the moisture levels during the cycle and automatically adjusts the drying time, to help ensure you get dry laundry every time.


Just set and go

Let us take the guesswork out of doing the laundry. With features like our Dual LED Display indicators and intuitive Dial-A-Cycle controls, you'll find the right setting every time.


Keep it quiet

There's no need for laundry to be noisy. Thanks to LG's LoDecibel operation, chances are you may not even notice it.

Features:

  • 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity

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 and 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.

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

Wonderful replacement for my old faithful

Submitted by KFrazier - 9/24/2017

My 20 something year old refrigerator just quit one day leaving me desperate for a new one. I looked on Best Buys website and found this ideal LG. It was processed that day delivered on the next and they hauled off my old one. That was in February of this year and over six months later I couldnt be happier with my new refrigerator. Im already spoiled to the indoor ice and water depensor.

Great Dryer Paint and Material Quality POOR.

Submitted by Bcald - 9/22/2017

I really like the way the dryer dries and also does not over dry. At 18 months the paint on the inside of the dryer near the lint trap is bubbling and peeling. The top of the dryer is made of heavy plastic and tends to leave fine scratches dulling the finish on the top. The only other thing is the design of the handle hidden on the top of the door. It tends to collect debris and is difficult to clean the hidden handle is not necessary to open the dryer door.

Drys without overdrying

Submitted by River Queen - 8/16/2016

Like the wrinkle care feature. Like that it automatically extends drying time when clothes arent dry in the original scheduled time. The timed cycle does not have a short enough time setting. Sometimes I want to dry something for just 5 or 10 min.
