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.

Problems early on

Johnnyett 6/5/2022

Dryer after a yr overheats and shuts off. You have to turn off the dryer and let it cool for about 30 minutes and then restart. That usually works. Fibally able to get a repair appt. He thinks replacing the motor should fix. Well see

The best

Cathychips 3/10/2022

LG has done it with this ventless dryer. This dryer is the best one I have ever owned. Im 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

Dave Lewis 12/31/2021

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 Product Customer Service

HHDave 9/21/2021

I bought this dryer in February 2020 failed and was replaced in June 2020. Started having problems again in April 2021 and continues to have problems through September without resolution. Have escalated twice to Executive team have had service out 3-4 times and could not duplicate yet I get continued reports of problems from our renters / management company. I cannot get a phone call from the Executive team with any explanation why my request for a replacement or refund is rejected. I have spent upwards of 20+ hours on the phone. Do not waste your time on LG

Poor repair service and warranty service

MB56 8/29/2021

Six weeks ago I reported our LG dryer no longer worked. After ten days AE Service came out and said the motor needed to be replaced and ordered a new one. No response since then from AE. I contacted LG ten days ago and they said they needed to confirm a part was ordered and it had to have been on order for at least 10-days for us to be eligible for a replacement or our money back. I have not heard anything since then. This LG dryer is within the one year warranty until the middle of Sept 2021. I really need a dryer that works now and if the part isnt available for the foreseeable future then I need to be reimbursed so I can buy a new one.

Doors

Kwaj 8/27/2021

Once we finally got it installed properly I love the dryer. I do have one complaint. The unit is sold to be stacked on the matching washer. The washer opens right to left and the dryer opens left to right - this makes it difficult to remove the clothes from the washer to put in the dryer. This design flaw gives you only about 1 of clearance to do this task. Im not a large woman but I am elderly and this is really inconvenient. Therefor because of this design flaw I would not recommend these particular units to others unless this is remedied.

Defective with no easy resolution

khines 8/20/2021

At 1 year and 11 months the motor over heated/burned up and melted the blower not allowing the drum to turn. A service man found on a forum that LG has a product bulletin informing repairmen that the computer board is defective and overheats the motor. I have spent at least 9 hours on the phone with LG numerous texts and now 7 weeks with no dryer and another repairmen being sent out in the future. Bad product with even worse customer service. Very disappointed.

wolf797979 8/11/2021

I bought this product on 11/2020. this worked well for about 6 months then this do not dry the clothes. I called the warranty they send a technician that said that everything was fine that was just the filter that was not clean. Now I have the same problem all the filters are clean and still is not drying the clothes at all. My warranty expired on April 2021 and now I am stuck with a machine that is not working. I regret choosing this dryer.

This dryer is the perfect size for our small laundry space. And it allows me to reach the back easier than a standard size dryer. My husband loves that it did not have to be vented. Awesome dryer.

Great Ventless Dryer

Yolmia 7/2/2021

I really like it. Its ventless and you need to change the water compartment after every wash. The one thing that concerns me its in the panel it has water condensed in it.

Horrible - Stay Away

QualityAssurance 6/9/2021

Purchased BOTH Washer and Dryer August 2019 began malfunctioning in February 2021. Whenever the washer has to spin during the rince cycle the noise is extremely loud which meant that the drum and/or rotor was bad. The dryer STOPPED working. Power comes on but no spinning to dry the clothes. Their warranty Customer Service is horrible. Reps and assigned Techs are rude and will cancel dates and expect you to accept. I will NEVER purchase this product again.

Four cats 5/31/2021

Excellent job at drying a wide range of clothing material. Easy to clean lint trap. Have to leave the laundry room door open to evacuate the heat created in the drying process. We really wish an accompanying pedestal was available for purchase.
