LG RC9055AP2Z Heat Pump Condenser Tumble Dryer, 9kg Load, A++ Energy Rating, White

Product information

The LG RC9055AP2Z 9kg Tumble Dryer is A++ energy rated, has a generous 9kg load capacity and a host of innovative features to make your laundry experience truly effortless.

The LG Sensor Dry system continuously senses how much moisture is in the load by measuring humidity in the tub, allowing it to dry clothes perfectly, depending on the programme selected. Unlike most conventional Dryers, the LG Tumble Dryer tumbles the load as the drum turns from side to side, preventing tangling, reducing creasing and giving evenly dried clothes in the minimum amount of time.

The LG RC9055AP2Z has heat pump technology which gives a high volume of air at lower temperatures (55ºC) gently drying delicate fabrics, smoothing wrinkles and reducing shrinkage after drying. Heat pump tumble dryers are more efficient and more environmentally friendly than conventional tumble dryers, making the doing the laundry easier and saving you money.

There are 14 programmes including wool, delicate and sportswear and with 5 drying options, there’s a programme to suit your every need. Throughout each drying programme the LG RC9055AP2Z will auto-clean by running water over the condenser several times in each cycle, clearing trapped lint. This self cleaning function ensures a more efficient drying cycle.

LG Tumble Dryers include a drying rack which allows you to dry your clothes flat, it is specially designed to dry fragile items such as woollens, delicates, sport shoes or even teddy bears. Just clip it inside the drum whenever you need it. For added convenience, a timer delay allows you to suspend the drying cycle start time by up to 19 hours, so your laundry fits into your lifestyle seamlessly, instead of you working around your laundry.

Q & As

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by One Big Tangle!!!!! I agree with everything that was said in the last review. The clothes - no matter what goes in - end up in a big tangle - every time - resulting in damp creased clothes. I am failing to see how after 3 hours (typical drying time) of action, the clothes are still wet. It has a 9 kg drum (our last tumble dryer had 7 kg drum) so there is room for movement. It even says in the description that due to it`s unique design, there will be no tangles!! It was a big investment and now I have to iron EVERYTHING as well as dry stuff on radiators to "finish them off". 24 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lots of drying options i use my dryer every wash so wanted one with an a rating. There are plenty of drying options for all types of fabric, plus it has a light up timer to let you know how long it takes. I also like the shoe rack, which you can take out when not needed. My favourite bit is having a water tank that's at the top of the dryer, so no more getting on my knees. It's a bit pricey but I hope it will last a few years. 24 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Washing TANGLE!!!!! in Dryer I have just run the Tumble Dryer, contents as follows. Large bed sheet, Large bottom bed sheet, two towels, and a couple of smaller items. Whilst the machine was running I turned the LED light on to see what the tumble action was like, to my horror ALL the contents were rolling around in a BALL! Totally screwed up like a concertina! How clothes can dry when they are screwed together is beyond me! I unloaded the dryer, loosened the tangled mess and re-loaded them, not 2 mins later they were again tangled in a BALL!! ALL THE CONTENTS NOW NEED IRONING, something I have never had to do with bedding before. I am totally disgusted with the operation of this item. I can only say this machine isn't fit for purpose!! 26 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product has a great range of programmes I am delighted with this product. I love the large drum and particularly like the steam programme which refreshes my dresses as well as my husband's suits. Ideal for a night out. 16 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply stunning! Pays for itself quickly! Having used a much cheaper condenser tumble dryer in the past (which gobbled electricity), and 1 or 2 washes a day, we needed something quicker, more reliable and cheaper to run. In short, having checked our energy usage before and after over a period of about a year, I calculate that this heat-pump dryer will pay for itself in less than 18 months! I cannot think of a better investment to make - despite the initial up-front cost. It's far quieter than our old one and we don't end-up with a hot & sweaty room in the summer any more. I'm sure many heat-pumps will give similar savings when replacing older 'condenser' driers, but having used this for over 6 months I cannot fault it. 29 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product This Tumble Dryer is a VERY GOOD machine it is far better than my previous dryer it is well built and easy to understand the programme's . 07 January 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by VERY GOOD AT FIRST This machine has been very good, but we've had it 14 months now, and put up with "empty water container fault", when it isn't even plumbed in. We've had one call out so far, and the condensate pump had black threads inside it, which affected the operation. This was cleaned, and the fault reappeared the next day, so a 3 hour ECO cycle stops after 2 hours. Rang up for another call out, and they never turned up, and when questioned said it needed the fridge compressor needed re-gassing, and that'll be next week...10 days later!! Utter codswallop, the pump has a limit switch, and the lines are not blocked. We shall see what happens, but if it does need re-gassing, LG can have it back! I am genuinely disappointed that a machine of this quality & price is faulty, and by comparison a Hotpoint SensorMatic in the same household worked great for 7 years, never broke down, and was 50% cheaper. 12 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by This is a poor machine and expensive machine I bought this as I have an excellent LG washing machine. It struggles to dry clothes and wraps them into a wet ball, creasing them on the way. So far I have not been given good customer support and it was suggested I should get tumble drier balls and 'balance the load'. None of this has made any difference. LG should go back to the drawing board on this one. 02 December 2014
