Great dryer
Posted:11/12/13
Pros: stackable - auto sensing - side duct capable
Cons: none
"Ours has been doing great for ten years. We are replacing the washer because the bearings need replacement after ten hard years of work. We wanted to upgrade to the newer ones with steam instead of fixing it. The dryer is still doing well. As for those with sour clothes. Clean the rubber gasket on your washer and clean out the water drain/ sump on the bottom front of the washer every month or so and you will fix it. That is part of the deal with the fast spinning front loaders"

I love this dryer!
Posted:3/28/11
Pros: size, performance
Cons: cheap drum
"My husband bought me the matching set about 3 years ago, maybe 4. I have not had any problems until now. The drum has cracked along the weld. Thankfully, I have a mechanically-inclined husband and he is able to fix it for me. Right now, we are looking at $150 to replace the drum. If this dryer did not perform so well, I would be extremely upset at this point. However, the washer and dryer are incredible and I can deal with this one set back."

Poor weld on drum - 3 yrs old
Posted:5/3/10
Pros: none
Cons: high price, unreliable, stainless surfaces spotted soon after purchase, parts & service not readily available, warranty
"Never again, again - not just a country song. Bought the pair in Jan 2007. Loud, clothes do not smell entirely clean. WM2277H washer dispenser leaks anything poured into bleach dispenser - ruined quite a few pieces of my clothing since bleach dripped onto the clothes hangers, which I store in the drawer beneath washer. A few months ago: Liquid softener cap dislodged & jammed soap dispenser drawer in machine; no way to get the entire module out without opening the dispenser drawer. WLE5977W dryer is loud, moisture sensor doesn't work properly. Dryer stops prematurely resulting in damp, sour clothes in warm months (we live in the South!) so must re-wash. Most recent dryer malfunction is loud thumping. At disassembly, one of the front roller assemblies is throwing rubber particles. Closer inspection shows the "rust-free" stainles steel drum (which was a BIG selling point) has come unwelded & is now out of round. Furthermore, the edge is eating the roller. Of course, no warranty at three years old, but $150 worth of parts, for which there are VERY limited suppliers. Must wait 5-7 days, then my time to repair. NICE! - my last washer & dryer lasted 20 years. LG products have been an expensive disappointment. I will not buy again. I WILL tell everyone I know or see in an appliance showroom that the product is not worth the $, be sure to examine warranty, don't expect much for their money, & be prepared to go to the washateria while awaiting parts or service !"
