  • Buying OpeBox Issues
    Verified BuyerReviewed by BornDIY - June 5, 2021

    This was an Open Box ReSale. I took extended Warranty which was 'USELESS'. If you buy Brand New, this is a good model. Only stating since friends purchased complete set 'brand new'. The Geek Service I received due to over heating on sides that can burn your hands was a waste of time. No Diagnosis was done and claiming the indentation at top on right side was causing overheating. You can burn your hands on this LG OpeBox. This Open Box LG Dryer dlc888W should of NEVER BEEN RESOLD. Buy the complete set NEW ONLY as 2-renters and new owners LOVE this LG SET. I went to American Frieght and purchased the KENMORE Ventless and very happy again.

  • Not great
    Reviewed by disappointedTX - December 29, 2020

    I purchased this dryer for the ventless feature. While that part works great, the drying function is not great. It takes easily twice as long to dry clothes. This dryer has a feature which is supposed to prevent sheets and blankets from balling up. In reality, it does the opposite. To round out the lackluster performance of this dryer, it came with manufacturing defects. The PCB and a couple of other components are under a recall and have to be replaced. The blower wheel apparently begins to melt if you use this dryer for more than a couple of consecutive loads. This causes the motor to overheat which in turn prevents the drum from spinning.

    Nice front loading washing machine with a good number of settings. The handwash versus delicate cycle is distinct, which is nice. Both cycle options do a good job with my laundry fabrics that require handwashing. I also like the speed wash cycle. However, the negative: I do not give it more than stars because at the start and end of the cycle the drum rotation is very loud and moves the machine. I have tried to level it more, but it is an intense noise. I actually replaced my first machine for another -- it is better, but still very loud and uncomfortable. Nonetheless, it is an average product.
