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

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.

The Worst Customer Service

Hani Sh 12/20/2023

The worst customer service EVER You have to call them and wait no less than an hour then be connected to a person with almost no information. Every time I called I got connected to the same person. I was scheduled to receive my order then it did not arrive. I had to contact them to find out about its status but they did not know After lots of communication I finally received my order after about 10 days I had to get daily off from my job because of their lack of responsibilities. After delivering my order which included an installation I received a call that they do not have time for the installation until about 20 days UNBELIVABLE The worst thing is that they are trying to convince you to connect with another team or company instead of doing these communications internally by their own. I had to communicate with the delivery company and then communicate and follow up with a separate installation company. It was not something I purchased. If you have not placed your order please consider another brand Very disappointed with this order and will not suggest it to anyone

Great product with worst customer service all time

JTST 12/15/2023

Product has been great. Love the app that notifies when cycle is complete. Customer service at LG is the absolute worst Ive ever dealt with. They are unable to solve very basic issues and when you ask for a manager they tell you one will contact you in 24-48 hours. I spent 3 days for a total of 5 hours on hold and transferred around departments to schedule the install appointment after the original install was unsuccessful. If everything goes smooth and product has no issues its a great product. If you have ANY issue be warned customer service will be a painful experience.

Very Good Dryer - Lots of Settings and Features

MDvaughn 11/24/2023

I went with the LG product after a lot of research looking for quality and dependability - and value. Im very happy we did in spite of the learning curve this is our first foray into the world of modern smart dryers. Were still learning the settings - as far as the best settings for various clothing type. Though there are numerous preset choices that cover the world of clothing and linen - theyre not necessarily a 1:1 correlation to the washing instruction terms found on clothing labels. Tumble Dry Low for example is indicated on the majority of our clothing including sweatshirts. However if you try to dry a load of sweatshirts using the Delicates setting the only preset you might assume correlates to Tumble Dry Low youll find they dont completely dry even with customizing the Dry level to the max. It takes some trial and error with the settings for us at least. Also we find the AI setting not to be very useful as you cannot customize the heat level by default it is set to a higher heat level than we like. We do like the steam feature though - we use it for wrinkle free pants after the regular drying cycle completes - it works great And we very much appreciate the overall efficiency - a huge improvement over the old fashioned dry we had previously. Were looking forward to mastering the settings. Weve downloaded a couple of settings from the app that werent already preloaded - including Rack Dry - which works with a rack we bought separately that sits in the drum so you can dry lay flat to dry items or anything you simply dont want to be tumbling around like shoes.

Only lasted a week before the trouble started.

CFMc 10/5/2023

Just one week after delivery of our new washer dryer the power button the start/stop button and the rectangular selection screen went dark. These all still function but do not illuminate. Unplugging and re-plugging the dryer makes the buttons light up correctly again but only for a few uses.

I am really really pleased.

DoctorM 9/2/2023

I waited a while to ensure I really was happy with this purchase and a couple of months later I still am very pleased. On top of it all it is beautiful and looks great in my new laundry room. It works as advertised. I purchased the front loading washer and dryer in matching metallic grey. Arranging the installation was tricky because of the gas dryer. It all worked out in the end and LGs customer service personnel are simply THE BEST I will never go back to using an electric dryer again. No static Wow

Would like to be able to keep settings I want.

Mac2023 8/17/2023

I bought this a few weeks ago. The washer doesnt have a way to use cold water. It has to be set every time to do a load. Even if I select cold when the load is done it is obvious that hot or warm water has been used. Sometimes the gas dryer doesnt always get clothes completely dry. I tried the steam setting in the dryer to get the wrinkles out of a couple of tops and they came out more wrinkled and wet So much for steaming. The washer spins very well and quietly.

Excellent Dryer

Dragontattoo48 6/28/2023

Ive owned the dryer for a couple of months. Its very quiet and the standard settings work very well. The Linkq connection connected pretty easily and gives updates when the dryer cycles are done. It also monitors energy consumption.

Great features and dries quickly

Rosi23 6/22/2023

I bought this dryer about a month ago to replace a very dryer and I am very happy with it. There are a lot of options to choose from and it dries the clothes very quickly. I noticed when removing the clothes they arent hot to the touch like my old dryer.
