Ai technology

Catherina 2/10/2024

I love my LG washing machines. They are really Ai effective and weigh my clothes before washing them. I dont have to worry about using too much water for certain amount of clothes. My water bill was very low and I used the machine over 8 times. I love being able to do everything from my phone as well.

Beautiful Sleek QUIET

Maureen and Frank Rath 1/24/2024

After 18 years our former LG Dryer needed to be replaced. We chose the DLEX5500V based on outstanding reviews available options and beautiful sleek design. This machine has so many options including a Steam Dry cycle good buy dry cleaning bills. The menu option are extremely easy to use and as a huge plus... I have never had a dryer that is so quiet...you can barely hear it running And to ice the cake it has a beautiful sleek design. I highly recommend this dryer if youre seeking a new one

I bought this a month ago and have never been more frustrated or disappointed in a company. My dryer from the very beginning has makes a loud noise and I am waiting for an lg certified repair man to come tomorrow sent by LG. The language barrier to try and arrange this was hard and I spent hours trying to arrange for the service as the call center is not in the USA. They wanted to come and look at my dryer last Friday evening between 4-8 pm not even normal business hours. One can only imagine how that would have gone. Fingers crossed for tomorrow that the person they send will actually know what he is doing.

Nothing to base dryer on

LG druer 1/7/2024

I have no idea. My brand new washer started leaking on the 24th of December and I have gotten no help or even technician out to look at the washer. They tell me over phone that I am using to much detergent in my washer.

Mit21 12/26/2023

We bought this dryer a few weeks ago and like the capacity it holds. The drying sensors leave the clothes dry and not damp. We like that the machine reimds you to check the lint filter for added safety.

GlynnEllen Harrell 12/9/2023

This Is Why

CEverest 12/8/2023

My first thought about a dryer with wifi was Why why would I need this why would I want this? I bought it anyway because of the beautiful modern and sleek look to it and my previous dryer was an LG which I had a long very good experience with so I wanted another LG. This works as good if not better than my previous dryer and I do use the wifi. The LG ThinQ app lets me know how much time is left when to clean the lint filter and sends an alert to my phone when its finished among many other useful features. When not in use the dryers digital display shows the date and time. I also bought the matching front load washer and the matching pedestals to complete the look and functionality. Its a beautiful looking and beautiful working machine

Pinglou 12/6/2023

This dryer has enough programming to dry our clothing. Spaciousness interior large enough to accommodate hand made king size quilt. I believe the technology allows for the washer to communicate with the dryer to determine drying needs. What a perk.

Overall happy with this purchase.

gy23Oct 11/15/2023

Dryer dries items quickly and is quiet great since laundry is open to the kitchen. Only issue that I see reported elsewhere and LG does not plan to fix is that some lint does collect on bottom of the door gasket and the door does not close well has about 1/4 inch gap - when closed I can pull/push on the door and it has a lot of give. I may resolve this using another users solution - adding door weatherstrip so that the door seal meets case.

Too many bells and whistles no user control

PeggyR198 11/10/2023

Its a good dryer but the settings are frustrating. For example if I use a cycle and my clothes dont get dry I can change the cycle the next time to continue until they are a little more dry. I also find it frustrating that there is no way to keep the drum going with no heat until I can unload the clothes. I go to the dryer as soon as it stops. The clothes arent completely dry warm and in a wrinkled pile. Had I known the lack of control in the varied cycles I wouldnt have purchased. The additional features like Keep Fresh do nothing to prevent wrinkles.

Ralph53 10/30/2023

Weve been using the washer and dryer set for over a month and love them The dryer is so quiet fast and the clothes seem to be softer than what the old dryer has able to dry even with the dryer sheets My wife was a little uncertain about using the single dial but now she loves it Especially the ThinQ link from the washer communicating with the dryer to set the dryer setting Only complaint is that the internal light does not turn on and stay on when the door is open.

A Smart And Fun Purchase With Many Options

Cheleshocked 10/24/2023

We bought our dryer in September 2023 and its a fun purchase. It pairs with the washer to recommends the best cycle according to the wash cycle. It informs me to wash the lint collector every 10 cycles and informs me when my load is done allowing me to restart or use keep fresh remotely from my cell. Theres even a steam option that gets well set wrinkles out not to mention theres a cycle that assists with ironing leaving clothes slightly damp. My most favorite cycle is the one for jeans. I no longer need to hang our jeans out to dry because the cycle doesnt shrink the jeans.

Electrical issue 10/6/2023

I replaced DLHX4072W with DLEX5500W. The electrical configuration does not match. 1. Your call center said the dryer will work only with 208 volt . 240 is not available in Manhattan NY.. 2. Please recommend a different stackable dryer that matches the electrical and size requirements of the DLHX4072W?

ClaytonV 9/28/2023

We have only had the dryer for about a month but it has been in operation just about every day. Our nonprofit does a lot of visitation and work with the infirmed. Volunteers often leave some of their protective clothing for the next use. Laundry happens and in the world of Covid being able to sanitize was one of our highest priorities. This system of 5500 units has performed very well so far and the company volunteers are enjoying the connectivity of the smart components.

New Home NEW DRYER

KeMarie 9/25/2023

We purchased this dryer about a month ago after settling on our new home. Ordered in store and it was delivered about a week later. This dryer is dries fast. Unlike that is doesnt feel super hot and the clothes are dry but dont feel like they are scorched. However my favorite feature is the LG app where is lefts me check on drying time remote start and lets me know when its time to clean or perform maintenance to keep my dryer on tip top shape.
