Very recently my family changed from a family of 2 to a blended family of 5. What used to be a laundry schedule of one day of laundering per week has quickly changed into a chore of more than several loads of laundry per day. If it werent for this dryer I would feel tortured. While the clothes have time to time come out not quite dry using the pre-set options (and by this I mean the pockets in heavy jeans are still a tiny bit damp in the corners), the bonuses of this dryer more than make up for any additional dry time needed on an every once in a while basis. There are tons of settings so every load of laundry is done perfectly...from cottons, to delicates, and everything in between. This dryer even has a wrinkle guard so my clothes still look great even when Ive forgotten them in there for a while! All in all, this machine is fantastic! It is pricey, but I've discovered it is more than worth it if you have a big family, or want to get your many loads of laundry done well.

Have had the dryer for several months. Am disappointed with a few things. First, items are not always dried when the proper cycle is chosen. When you try to select it again to dry it will only run for a few seconds and shut off sensing the clothes are dry when they are not. I've even tried switching to another cycle and the machine stops just the same. So I end up with slightly wet items that i have to put outside or hang up to dry. The panel lights are really hard to read. The steam cycle does not take wrinkles out of clothes that you want to remove without having to iron like my old machine did. The lint trap is flimsy. Lastly the since the washer does not always get clothes etc smelling really fresh, when they are dried, there is now a constant odor after running the dryer like slightly soiled clothes. Mind you I'm an extra clean freak and wash clothes after wearing one time. So I''m not talking about stuff sitting around stinky for days or a week!

      Comments about LG Graphite Mega Capacity Gas Steam Dryer:

      This is the WORST dryer ever!! when it works, it works well enough, but in the 1 year I have had it, I have had to replace the high limit thermostat 4 times. After paying such an exorbitant price for this, I don't expect to be paying for parts every few weeks.

                        This is a good clothes dryer but there should be no reason that any clothes dryer is as expensive as a washer which is much more complex. A dryer is a relatively simple machine and should not be priced the same as the washer.

                            I wish drum light would stay on longer for loading/unloading and I wish the ENTIRE control panel would light up to make it easier to read. Have used steam fresh several times and clothes come out freshened but damp. Cycle fills up with steam but then drum stops periodically, then restarts. If it is suppose to help reduce wrinkles, why does drum stop periodically? Going to call tech support, but still moving in new home. Capacity is great.
