Dryer Pros and Cons
Drying Offers the capability to sanitize items that can't be easily washed such as pillows and stuffed animals. Reduces common household bacteria and allergens using a higher heat setting.
Cycles Number of available cycles and options is about average for a new clothes dryer. Generally the more cycles and options you have to choose from, the better the chance of meeting your clothing care needs.  
Drum Drum material is comprised of adequate but less desirable materials such as steel, plastic, or porcelain. Stainless steel is more durable and less resistant to damage, odors, discoloring, or static build-up.  
Capacity The DLG5966G capacity is 2% higher than average and ranks in the top 40% of new larger size dryers. Holds about 0.1 cu ft more laundry than the average new dryer. Laundry can be done less often.
Sensor Uses a moisture sensor to measure the water content of clothing as it tumbles, and automatically shuts-off the cycle when dry. Prevents clothing from being damaged by overheating and saves on energy costs.
Price Price per cubic foot of capacity is about average for a new clothes dryer and is rated GOOD for affordability. Dryers can often be purchased on-sale at 10%-20% under the manufacturer's MSRP.  


LG DLG5966G Dryer


Performance Ratings
Temp
Settings
5 Settings - Provides an ample number of temperature settings to select from. It's important to match the heat level to the type of fabric being laundered; helps prevent damage and alleviate wrinkles.
Steam
Cycle
No Steam Cycles - Does not have the ability to generate steam and refresh lightly worn garments, or remove the wrinkles from clothing. About 60% of new dryers on the market now include a steam cycle.  
Sanitize
Cycle
Sanitize Cycle - Sanitizes items with a high temperature cycle that kills many forms of household bacteria or allergens. Especially useful for freshing up stuffed animals, pillows, and other non-washable items.
MSRP $1219 - Manufacturer's Price is about average for a new dryer and is rated GOOD for overall price. In addition to the LG DLG5966G MSRP, it's also beneficial to check the price per cubic foot.  
Warranty LG 1-Year Parts, 1-Year Labor - Industry standard warranty for clothes dryers. A few manufacturers offer a two-year warranty on parts, but dryer warranties are generally not as good as washers.


Convenience Ratings
Stackable Stackable - Like most new front-load matching dryers, this model can be stacked vertically with a washer to save space, and allows one unit to be accessed comfortably at shoulder level. Great for small rooms.
Reverse
Door
Reversible Door - The LG DLG5966G dryer door is flexible and can be switched to open from right-to-left (with a washer sitting on the right side), or left-to-right (with a washer sitting on the left side).
Drum
Light
Drum Light - Includes an internal light that automatically switches on when the dryer door opens. Almost all new dryers come equipped with this nearly essential feature so you can see to unload your clothes.
Filter
Indicator
Filter Indicator - Provides a visual cue that the DLG5966G lint filter needs to be cleaned. Helps you keep the dryer clean and ensure that the proper airflow is maintained. Most of us need to be reminded.
Dryer
Rack
Dryer Rack Included - Dryer racks allow you to dry items that shouldn't be tumbled such as shoes, ball caps, sweaters, and stuffed animals. Simply place the rack inside the dryer for tumble-free drying.
Venting Must Be Vented - Over 95% of new dryer models must be vented to the outside of your home with a duct running from your dryer. A few ventless models are available if an outside duct is not practical.  


Control Ratings
Display LED Display - Just look at the dryer while you're working to see how much time is left before the clothes are finished. Includes a remaining cycle time display that provides time and sometimes program status.
Controls Rotary-Electronic - Designed with a modern digital control system that makes cycle or option selection easy and convenient. About 85% of new dryers are now fitted with highly-functional electronic controls.
Delay
Start
No Delay Start - Can't be programmed to start at a later time. About 25% of new dryers have the convenience of drying the laundry at a time that best fits your schedule. More important for washers than dryers.  
Custom
Cycle
Custom Cycle - Allows you to program a custom cycle with specific options and temperature settings that you use the most. No need to select everything over and over, just push the My Cycle button.
Phone
Diagnosis
No Phone Diagnostics - You can't connect to the manufacturer's repair center and have dryer problems directly diagnosed over the phone. About 20% of new dryers have some type of phone connectivity.  
Smart
Grid
Not Smart-Grid Capable - Cannot be hooked into the present or future local utility smart-grid and programmed to operate when utility rates are lower. Most new dryers are still not smart-grid capable.
