The LG is part of the Clothes Dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Clothes Dryer models such as those listed below.
Drying performance: This score combines performance on three types of laundry loads of different sizes and fabric mixes: load, predominantly cotton, representing a family’s large weekly load; a load of cotton/polyester blend clothing; and a. a load of synthetic delicates, women’s pajamas, nightgowns, bras, and underwear.
Convenience: For this measurement, we judged controls and ergonomics, such as ease of loading and unloading, servicing the lint filter, whether the door could clear a tall basket, and whether the machine has a raised edge to contain spills.
Noise: This score was determined by a panel of judges who listened while machines dried an 8-pound load, measuring both sound quality and volume.
