What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great works great so far (6 months) handles the clothes for our family of 6 children with one on the way with ease. only thing missing is a maid to keep it running while we homeschool the children :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lots of features - doesn't dry I just contacted support regarding this dryer. It was leaving lots of loads damp. We did troubleshooting and nothing was wrong. I was then told to use Time Dry for mixed loads. Basically, the message was that the sensor is over sensitive and senses dry items in mixed loads, and shuts the cycle down. All these extra sensors, and the dryer is dumb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer Great results. One improvement would be to light the menu customization titles. Hard to see in my laundry room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At last At last I can dry all my big bedding from comforters to sleeping bags as well as things that are not bedding; stuffed animals. The special features like the steam feature are just bonuses to a wonderful dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AwesomeDryer I purchased this dryer to replace my Electrolux dryer that was giving me problems. I have never been happier with a dryer as I am with my LG. I have dried evrything from big bulky papasan chair cushions to delicate items. It dries completely and i have never had to add more time. The steam feature is a must. It derinkles clothes so there is no need to pull out the ironing board and iron anymore. I highly recommend this dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from steam! The steam gave us some trouble in the vent during the winter but since then it has been fine. It's just too much hot air entering to the cold and affecting the vent but not breaking it. We love this dryer and it always does an awesome job. It senses when the clothes need more time or less and adjusts appropriately. We would definitely buy this model again.

What is the dryer blower rate?

Can it push the air 50 feet? More?
Asked by: jjules
It does not specifically indicate the dryer blower rate on the machine itself. It does not blow at high speeds as this would force open the door during the rotating cycle. The blower speed is nominal for the clothes to receieve the heat required to dry.

Does the dryer tub turn in both directions?

Our current dryer tub only turns in one direction - which means if I put a load of jeans or sheets in to dry, they come out as a giant knot. My mom has a different brand which I noticed turns both counterclockwise, and then clockwise, which keeps laundry from coming out in a knot. It also keeps wrinkles at bay. Does this unit's tub turn in both directions, or just one? This is for the DLEX8000W 9 cu ft dryer. Thanks.
I would assume it does in order to keep the clothes wrinkle free upon completion of the drying cycle.

Thermocouple or humidity sensor?

Does this have intelligent sensing while drying your clothes? If so, does it use a thermocouple to accomplish this or a humidity sensor?

What is the flow rate of the dryer?

Asked by: Houseslave
Hi Houseslave. Regrettably, neither the Specifications nor the owner's manual for the LG 9.0 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Dryer with Steam™ Technology (Electric), Model # DLEX8000W list what the flow rate is for this dryer, however, you may be able to get that information from a Call Representative or Product Specialist at LG's Customer Interactive Center (800) 243-0000. They may have access to the engineering notes for this unit that specify what the flow rate is...^IFV

Drying on air only

How long can I set the dryer to air dry? I like to use that for delicate fabrics and lightweight cotton and some denim. I prefer to use a sensor dry cycle on air dry in order to let the dryer sense when the items are dry. This keeps my delicate clothes from wearing out too quickly and saves energy. I hope there is an unlimited time setting for this, since no heat is used.
Asked by: Bluewizard76
Hello Bluewizard76. The LG 9.0 CU. FT. Mega Capacity Dryer with Steam™ Technology, Model # DLEX8000V has both SENSOR DRY cycles that have preset settings that are selected automatically and MANUAL DRY cycles that have default settings. In the Manual Dry Cycle is the Air Dry mode and the Manual Dry cycles allow you to manually select the drying time, from 20 to 60 minutes, in 10-minute increments. You can also use the MORE TIME/LESS TIME buttons to add or reduce the drying time in 1-minute increments...^IFV
