      Comments about LG 7.4 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

      I never take time to write product reviews, but that's how bad this dryer is. The dryer is not made very well, and the front panel is apparently not tightly connected to the dryer. It makes a creaking noise every time the dryer is in operation. Even worse, I stacked my dryer on the washer, so the dryer noise is even worse when the washer spins. It frequently displays d80 error message, even though there is no obstruction with the ducts. I bought LG based on reputation, but this dryer will certainly make me think twice before buying any LG appliance again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

          I bought this in November 2016 and I love it. I get laundry done faster because it is bigger than what I previously had. I like the options on it and have had no problem. I total recommend this product.

              Comments about LG 7.4 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

              Just received delivery and was not too happy to find the gas hook-up sticks straight out of the back making a potential for crushing or breaking the gas line. I suggest a 90-degree angle gas port like most other brands. Also, the dryer vent connection is a solid tube, making the redirection of the vent to rather side impossible without disassembling the dryer and purchasing a length of flex. I suggest the dryer vent port connection inside the dryer be substituted for a piece of flex hose so one can connect the dryer hose on either side of the dryer using the cutouts built into the housing. The stacking kit uses brackets which lock around the dryer's feet which is not secure when moving the unit around as the feet easily squeeze and lift out of the brackets. It's not a confidence-inspiring method of mounting, but it does keep a cushion between the washer and stacked dryer which is a nice compromise between stability and vibration isolation. Finally, the AC plug should also be a 90-degree plug like most other brands as the straight plug makes tight installation impossible because of the danger of breaking the plug or severing the cord. Apart from the design flaws which negatively affect installation, the feature-set is extraordinary for this price-fixing. The flow sensor is a nice feature and it ensures you must level the unit else the clothing may fall against the front door covering the vent and triggering the flow sensor. It is a great safety feature for lint build-up on the exterior house dryer vent as well. The rotary cycle selector is very easy to use and we shall see how it holds up to normal use. The multiple heat and cooling settings really accommodate varying drying jobs and I look forward to gas and electric savings. The signal chimes are a pleasant alternative to the old-style buzzer still in use on many other brands. The panel buttons and lights are nice and big and visible. The separator strips between the buttons insure against accidentally slipping and pressing the wrong button. The reversable door is nice because it ships installed opposite of the washer which is good for side-by-side but not for stacking. Finally, I wish the dryer had a direct-drive motor like the washer has instead of the belt drive common to most other brands. I look forward to at least a decade of use from this machine. Apart from these serious design flaws on the

                  Comments about LG 7.4 CuFt Front Load Gas Dryer:

                  So far my family and I have enjoyed the product. We only had some issues when installing it because we miss some packaging. The default drying setting are great for 1st time users but you will have to change them when you are doing a bigger loads or a more damp loads. Also, because this machine is front load you need to measure your space and the unit to make sure it will fit. These machines bows out in the front so I would recommend that you measure the unit from the center, the biggest point of the machine to make sure that it will fit in your space. Another thing is the hose in back of the machine, account for the space that you will need to accommodate that because it will push your machine forward. The hose is at the bottom which might not be the most convenient place for many people. Overall I like how it dries and how it lets you know when your clothes is done. So far so good. One last recommendation, leave the door slightly open so the unit can vent out and not smell moldy or dry out completely.

                      I'm very happy with our new gas dryer from LG. It's efficient and quiet and has the ability to create a customized cycle, if needed. The price/performance of this dryer is hard to beat!

                          My wife and I always look for appliances that offer long term reliability and have the features that we like and need at the best price. We've had excellent luck with LG products in the past and that they are so highly rated by Consumer Reports only adds to that confidence.

                                      The settings are not intuitive. Lots of buttons but we cant dry clothes with this. Set it for an hour and it turns off with wet cloths in 10 minutes.
