LG 5101 washer - any reason to buy the 'matching' dryer?

burntfingersMay 26, 2012

Hello all,

I've read the threads on this washer (most of which seem to be a few years old), but unless something has radically changed,I'llbe putting one of these in our new house. Now the question is, is there any reason to buy the "matching" dryer instead of one of the "lower" level dryers? Opinions seem to be that the steam function doesn't really add anything....

Thanks! Everyone's input is always so helpful...

Nope. If you don't want machting, you can get any dryer as they all work the same, basically.

And be careful about washing extra large items - some of these WaveForce washers seem a little ... wild... during the final spin cycle.

Google exploding WaveForce. It would certainly make me think twice.

I have the washer and dryer, no issues with it spinning large comforters or loads. The steam dryer works great, glad I got it too
