Don't prejudge this speedy LG dryer because it looks ordinaryThe LG DLEX 3570V dryer may look like your average front-loading clothes dryer but it spins through laundry cycles with impressive swiftness.
In recent years we've seen some really stylish LG appliances that have been elegant and very easy on the eyes. But this LG dryer certainly is not one of them. Priced at $1,100, this appliance is a bit generic. It's handsome, but it looks like many other products you see on store shelves or online. It actually dries clothes very quickly though. It's one of the best performers we've seen in a while. You also get multiple Steam modes as well as different cycles to handle all types of fabric and clothing. I definitely don't like the controls on this machine. The text is small. The icons are hard to read. And the lights that indicate the cycle are kind of hard to match up with the text that you're trying to read. You also have to manually fill its water tray to power its steam modes instead of a dedicated line, and that's a bit Inconvenient. The drum size is only 7.4 cubic feet, and that's a bit small compared to the 8 and 9 cubit feet we see on larger machines. This dryer makes sense if you wanna dry clothes fast. But if you want more capacity, you're gonna have to look elsewhere.
