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.

Turns off every couple of min

Steve K11 1/9/2023

I bought this unit almost 2 years ago for my Florida condo. It does not got a lot of use as I am only there 16 to 20 weeks a year. Shortly after the 1 year warranty ran out it started turning itself off every couple of min. It typically requires 5 to 7 restarts before it finally runs till cycle finishes.

Substandard materials used in the product

Working manufacturing 11/19/2022

Arrived today with plastic composition door sensor already snapped off. Unable to use and negative review vanished. Planned obsolescence that keeps costs down and bolsters profits lead to low customer satisfaction. Should have heeded original review.

Excellent for small Space

John2345 7/26/2022

I have owned this dryer for two years now. It is small and when working effective is great. . I have a long term warranty which I would suggest you buy. The dryer had a problem and after much conversation was repaired. The issue turned out to be an airflow cap. Now it is repaired its working great again It works like a dehumidifier not a regular vent a dryer

Dries into a tight bundle

NoVent 7/20/2022

a good dryer goes backwards and forwards so things do not get rolled into a tight bundle. This is not a good dryer.

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...
