  The LG DLGX2651W is a large-capacity gas dryer that should handle most drying needs for an average household. It has steam options to sanitize or to quickly refresh clothes by reducing wrinkles and odors without putting the items through the washer. Other features include an anti-bacterial setting to eliminate many allergens; a sensor system to turn off the machine when the clothes are dry; and a rack to dry sneakers, sweaters, pillows, stuffed animals or other items without tumbling them.

What People Are Saying:

Consumer Reports puts the LG DLGX2650W gas dryer on its 2012 Recommended list, rating it excellent for drying performance and capacity, and very good for convenience and noise, and calling it "good in overall performance." There are only a few online user reviews, and those that CostHelper found were primarily positive, although a few gave this model the lowest possible marks and reported repeated repair problems, particularly after the one-year warranty expired. User reviews that recommend this machine call it quick, quiet, efficient and easy to use, and praise the variety of its drying options, especially the steam features.
