  The LG DLE2250W is a relatively large-capacity electric 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 DLE2250W electric 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." Although there are not many user reviews online, those that CostHelper found are primarily positive, saying this dryer is attractive and quiet, and that they love the capacity and number of options. For example, in 14 user reviews at Home Depot, 13 give this machine high marks and recommend it; the lone negative review complains that clothes get caught inside the dryer and tear.
