  The LG DLE2250W is a relatively large-capacity gas dryer that should handle most household drying needs. It has seven automatic drying cycles that use sensors to turn off the machine when the load is dry; an anti-bacterial setting; an end-of-cycle chime (instead of a beep or buzzer); and a Wrinkle Care setting so that after the drying cycle ends, the machine continues to intermittently tumble the load without heat.

What People Are Saying:

The LG DLG2251W gas dryer is ranked as a Best Buy (the highest level) by Consumer Reports, which rates it excellent for drying performance and very good for capacity, convenience and noise, and says it is "very good in overall performance." There are a limited number of user reviews online, but those that CostHelper found are primarily positive. Users praise this machine for its quiet operation, large capacity and variety of cycles; several like the quiet chimes that play at the end of each cycle. The only minor complaints are that the temperatures can't be adjusted on the automatic drying cycles, and that the sensor system sometimes turns off the machine while some items in the load are still a little damp.
