- So many features and functions
- Great, quiet dryer
- Love the steam function
This dryer has plenty of features, including a steam fresh cycle. Additionally, the titled tub makes unloading easy. There’s also a smart app and the matching washing machine is brilliant.
The app doesn’t work with every smartphone (including iPhones) and it’s rather pricey.
You’re going to get a lot of machine with this dryer – you’re just not going to get a huge amount of space in the drum. It’s only 7.4 cu. ft. But there are 14 sensor dry programs, and terrific temperature and dryness level options.
Better still, this is an exceptional machine when it comes to energy efficiency. It’s more than ENERGY Star compliant; it’s got the best energy factor and lowest energy consumption on the list.
Looking for more reasons to fall in love with this dryer? There’s the angled door, the sleekly stylish appearance, the ultra-quiet operation, and the ThinkQ app integration. It’s also available in white if you want to save a few bucks.
So, why isn’t it our best dryer? Well, because it truly makes the most sense when paired with its matching washer - WM5000HVA (and perhaps the LG SideKick which necessitates risers for the dryer). When you start adding everything together, it can get pretty expensive. Sure, you can buy it on its own, but we think it’s much better as part of the duo and that makes it difficult to move to the top spot.
