  The LG DLG4801W is a large-capacity gas dryer that should handle the laundry needs of an average household. It offers both automatic and manual cycles for drying flexibility, and the automatic cycles use a moisture sensor system that turns off the machine when the load is dry. Other features include a Wrinkle Care option that intermittently tumbles the clothes without heat after the drying cycle ends; a custom program feature that stores favorite settings so they don't have to be entered each time; and an end-of-cycle chime (instead of a buzzer) that can be set high, low or off.

What People Are Saying:

Consumer Reports rates the LG DLE4801W electric dryer excellent for drying performance, very good for capacity and convenience, and good (a somewhat mediocre rating) for noise. User reviews are primarily positive; most recommend this machine, saying it has plenty of options for handling different fabrics and is quick, quiet and attractive. However, the small percentage of users who don't recommend this machine say their clothes are consistently damp at the end of the drying cycle, and a few report that the machine stopped dead in the middle of a cycle only a few weeks or a few months after purchase.
