    I love this dryer. I've owned it for two years, and it fits perfectly (with room to spare) under my kitchen counter. (I also own the matching washer). When I purchased this set there were not many manufacturers/models that made a washer/dryer set that were front-loading and fit under my kitchen counter (the only place in my condo to put them). Initially, I was a bit put off by the price, but both units have performed flawlessly in two years time. I sort of have a love/hate relationship with the ventless feature of this dryer. I love it, because it fits in a small space, and I don't have to waste space for a vent in the rear. Additionally, the length of my vent from the dryer to the outside is almost fifty feet, so I was very happy to rid myself of this problem. I don't actually hate anything about the dryer, but I do find that it takes almost two hours to dry an average load of clothes--and that seems like forever at times. There's nothing wrong with the condenser, but you do need to remember to clean it every three months to keep your dryer running at its best. Not as "mindless" as a vented unit. I once left some partially dried clothes in the dryer for a couple of days and panicked when I couldn't get the mildew smell out of the dryer. Luckily that disappeared after a few drying cycles. All in all, I love this dryer, and when I get annoyed at having to clean the condensing unit, I just remind myself of all the years I spent in laundromats! As far as convenience goes, there's just no comparison!

    We bought this dryer about 3 months ago and the electronics on it broke about 2 weeks after it arrived. All the lights on the front panel flashed like crazy for a few minutes one day and then nothing, kaput. Our retailer was nice enough to agree to an exchange and a new unit was sent out. About 5 minutes after that one was delivered the front panel started flashing like crazy again and the, yup you guessed it, it wouldn't start at all. This time we had an LG tech out to make sure the retailer had installed it correctly and the home electrics were up to snuff. He visits (nice guy BTW) and verifies that the unit was installed correctly and that there are no issues with the power in the house. He also open it up and says he noticed that the connection between the power supply and the main electronic board appeared loose. He reseated that connection and voila the unit started working again. Cool. We're happy. Now it's 3 weeks later and the front panel has started flashing wildly again. However this time things are slightly different - it doesn't die completely, just goes crazy from about 20 minutes into it's dry cycle - all the while the drying is happening as if the things brain wasn't in the middle of a seizure. After the cycle is done the unit won't start up - it twitches and fumbles through it's startup chime and *normal* light show, but is never quite able to get all the way there. So for the next hour we can't dry another load. After the unit has had time to find it's bearings everything is back to normal before the next load when the same thing happens again. LG tech is coming out today - they're good about that. But you'll understand if we don't have much confidence that the unit will last much past the 12 month warranty. Oh ya - it seems pretty good when it is drying.

          Comments about LG 4.2 Cu Ft Capacity White Electric Dryer:

          Our fabulous 18-year-old compact dryer finally failed (along with its matching washer), forcing us to shop for a new laundry pair. Initially we were hoping to find a moderately priced conventionally vented dryer but, after researching the latest models, we finally bit the bullet and sprang for this LG DLEC855W ventless condenser dryer. We’ve only had the machine for a month, so the pros and cons listed below are tentative. The dryer is stacked over its matching washer LG WM1377HW in a very small space in the kitchen next to our refrigerator. We line-dry our wash most months out of the year but, in order to determine that the dryer is working properly, we have thus far testdriven the machine with about 10 loads of all kinds of laundry. PROS: • Drying options are more than sufficient and the machine has a must-have moisture sensor. • Drying capacity is excellent and drying time is only marginally longer (if at all) than our old vented dryer. • The heat that is recycled back into the house will definitely be a welcomed addition during the winter. • We have chosen to empty the condensed water directly into the drain, but having the reservoir option will definitely come in handy as well. • The machine also comes with a drying rack (which we have yet to use) and a drum light feature, both of which may also prove handy. CONS: • Given the bulging, rounded front of the design, the machine is substantially deeper that it needs to be and that’s unfortunate. • Periodically, the dryer makes a grinding noise, presumably due to the action of the pump pushing the water to the drain (or reservoir). • Bulky items like sheets ball up almost immediately and the reverse rotation of the drum is not able to undo the problem. • A powerful, industrial smell was emitted during the initial drying tests but seems to have decreased with each subsequent load dried. My assumption is that it is a temporary problem associated with the fact that the dryer is brand new and that after a few more uses the smell will be gone completely.

              This dryer is a lot faster than expected it to be for a non vented machine. It is noisier than the washer but the level is acceptable even though it is located in the center of my apartment.

                  While the drying time seems long, the clothes come out dry and fresh. The fact that it did not need a vent and stacks nicely on the washer saved room. So far it has performed as I would expect. Reminds me of my European laundry equipment.

                            We have had the dryer for just over a month - but it has been used every day, sometimes three times a day. I am delighted with it in almost every way. The best thing is that it is ventless, so that there is no hot air being blown outside the house, or fluff escaping from scrunched extractor hoses. In fact it keeps the house quite warm, which on these cold days is good. It works perfectly draining the condensation down the pipe along with the washing machine water. I also (silly though it may seem) LOVE the tune it plays when it is finished. It is very cheerful and a huge improvement on the terrible beep that is usual (and that one usually turns off.) The one bad thing is that large sheets and duvet covers get rolled into a tangle - and that is really very bad. But otherwise it dries perfectly and efficiently and I love it.

                                This product has a 12 month warranty. Wouldn't you know it, it broke in the 13th month. Last weekend, we were drying clothes and the spinning stopped, a moderately loud droning noise came on. There was a burning smell. We unplugged it and tried again. It runs for a few minutes and stops. No burning smell again, but still doesn't work. It will cost us at least $150 to fix, not to mention the fact that we have it stacked in a closet and the repair company says they can't work on it unless we get it out ourselves! Don't spend your money on this product.

                                    I've read many reviews on this web site & others...some good, some bad. So I gritted my teeth & bought it because it seemed like the best of very few small ventless dryers available. Well, it came and I am very pleased. Let's hope it continues. But I did buy a 5 year service contract. The machine dries the clothes perfectly in a reasonable amount of time.

                                    Comments about LG 4.2 Cu Ft Capacity White Electric Dryer:

                                    Like the size and ease of use, but condenser water pump failed after 3 months use. Replacement pump is very noisy and sounds like a coffee bean grinder each time it pumps water from the condenser. Hopefully this is not an indicator of future problems. Recommend purchaser buy an extended warrenty with the dryer.
