Awesome washer, it is absolutely huge for a front loading model.

Ok, nothing bad to say about this one. It is huge, the biggest I've seen for a front loading model for the home (of course there are commercial size ones in the laundromats I am NOT comparing it to those). Anyways clothes always come out dry in 50 minutes (which is very fast as I've tried some big loads).

Returning it

This will be going back to store. When using the moisture sensor to dry, there is no way to change the preset default temperature setting. Example: instructions say to dry jeans on heavy duty, but that is defaulted to high temperature and cannot be changed. The only way to modify the temperature setting for any load is to use "timed dry", which does not use the moisture sensor to determine when clothes are dry.

Horrible horrible dryer, if you value money  do not purchase. Takes 2 hrs to dry clothes, when I called sears they said they get complaints for this dryer often. I think these reviews are fake. Do not buy

Dries great - love My Cycle as short - bought LG dryer rack

|

I bought this and the matching washer 41262 due to the Consumer Reports recommendation. I stacked them. I use the moisture sensor and every load dries fine, within 50 minutes even for towels. As I'm a short 5'1" I appreciate the My Cycle button which is lowest right and allows you to store a customed dry cycle for future use. I can reach all the buttons on tiptoe! I was bummed this model didn't come with a dryer rack but bought LG Dryer Drying Rack model 3751EL1001B and it fits perfectly. Only complaint as with the washer is that the Loud chime isn't very loud. :-) I can hear it as laundry on main level but wouldn't if in basement.

So far the best drier ever!!

|

This dryer beats our old Kenmore 10 to 1. It dries in one third the time of the one before and helps prevent wrinkles. The lint trap is a lot easier to clean and it stacked on top of the washer, using less room.
