Our Recommendations

LG Electronics pursues its 21st century vision of becoming a true global digital leader who can make its customers worldwide happy through its innovative digital products and services. LG Electronics set its mid- and long-term vision anew to rank among the top 3 electronics, information, and telecommunication firms in the world by 2010. As such, they embrace the philosophy of "Great Company, Great People," whereby only great people can create a great company, and pursue two growth strategies involving "fast innovation" and "fast growth." Likewise, they seek to secure three core capabilities: product leadership, market leadership, and people-centered leadership.

LG DLE2240W Electric Dryer - Intuitively Easy Controls, Unthinkably Large Capacity
LG's Intelligent Electronic Control Panel with LED Display and Dial-a-Cycle features intuitive controls that will give you the confidence to just "set it and go." And, its ultra-large capacity can accommodate so much, it may sometimes seem bottomless. Add to this a Sensor Dry System, which measures the moisture-level during the cycle and adjusts the drying time, and you have a dryer sure to make you smile.

Ultra-Large Capacity
Do laundry a little less often. With 7.3 cubic feet of capacity, this dryer handles really large loads. Saving you time and energy.

Intelligent Electronic Controls with LED Display and Dial-A-Cycle
Let LG take the guesswork out of doing the laundry. The intuitive Intelligent Electronic Control Panel with LED Display and Dial-A-Cycle makes it easy to find the right setting every time.

Sensor Dry System
What's worse than pulling clothes out of the dryer and finding they're still damp LG's Sensor Dry system measures the moisture levels during the cycle and automatically adjusts the drying time, assuring you get dry laundry every time.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 Canadian Consumer Our Dryer sits [with stacking kit] on the 2240 Washer. The stacking kit raises the Dryer only minimally. MY wife [5'2"] has no difficulty reaching the upper control buttons when the dryer is stacked. One caution for those contemplating the "stacked" mode We installed the washer/dryer combo into a previously built 31" alcove. A 6' dryer cord [NOT SUPPLIED, BTW] BARELY reaches the baseboard height 220v electrical supply [The strain relief for the power cord is in the back uppermost left corner of the unit, as seen from the front, so be prepared for some gymnastics to plug the unit in.] With an overhead vent pipe against the wall, the opened door is nearly 53 inches from the wall, so allow for this in a narrow utility room. Cautions aside, the combo is perfect! 6/15/11
Rated 5 out of 5 Very satisfied Excellent product. I have had it for several months now. I am not experiencing the mold odor problem that others have referred to. I keep the door open after a wash to dry out. Really like this washing machine. Clothes come out beautifully and the controls are very easy to use. 6/22/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT CHOICE!!!! I have had my LG washer and dryer now for about a month. I Love it!! My clothes seem to be much cleaner, It dose take a little longer to do a load . But I havent really noticed because it is so quite. I would recommend them very highly. Can you belive it, I like doing my laundry now!!!! 3/6/11
Rated 3 out of 5 by tangled clothes Always need at least 2 cycles to dry clothes no matter how large or small the load. Blankets or bed sheets roll up into a ball and are dry on the outside and wet on the insideof the ball. 5/10/11
