This uses a lot less water, and less electricity, making washing clothes the cheapest it has ever been. It also has the LG Steam feature, which gently cleans and disinfects clothing by using less water than a normal load of laundry requires.

The Efficient Dryer

The large capacity of this dryer allows for more clothes to be dried at a time, decreasing the amount of loads to be done. A dryer can eat up a large portion of your electricity bill, so the less you need to turn it on, the better!
