Yes, somewhat. Always remember the loads are smaller and the wash and dry cycles combined take approximately 2 1/2 to 3 hours to complete a load. So gear your wash habits differently. Wash a load every day or every other day rather than trying to wash everything in one day. Also, a condensing drying system is different than a standard hot air dryer. Because condensing dryers do not vent, it is completely normal for them to run for a longer time than a standard vented model (even though these machines run longer, they use two thirds less energy than a standard vented dryer). For best results shake & fold or hang on a clothes hanger right away to avoid wrinkling. Remember, gear your wash habits a bit differently and keep your expectations within reason and you’ll love the LG.
