What People Are Saying

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 164 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Dryer Great results. One improvement would be to light the menu customization titles. Hard to see in my laundry room. August 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best dryer ever! It is huge and does a superb job. After washing all my towels in our LG washer, the dryer dries them all in under an hour August 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. July 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Clothes come out so clean I love my dryer! So big! I can dry everything myself.love the options on it.the lights in drum help me a lot. Love the signal sound. Best dryer I've ever had! July 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superior in every sense of the word Awesome dryer, gets you a nice even dry across large loads. Great features, and a great investment. May 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value for your Investment The dryer is simple to operate, has wider capacity to hold more clothes and the clothes are evenly dried. Simply love the features and easy to use capabilities of the product. Great value for the investment. May 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. July 11, 2015

Loud Knocking Noise

When I start my dryer-it makes a loud knocking noise-for approximately 30-40 seconds...the stops and the dryer itself is fairly quiet. Is anyone else experiencing this issue with their dryer?

Answer: 
Mine makes a bit of a noise when it first starts, but it's nothing that worries me because, as you said, it stops after less than a minute. I just assumed it was the load getting going, overcoming inertia, and once it gets spinning good, it quiets down.

Answer: 
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced. This almost sounds like a roller wheel may be causing this noise. Such cannot actually be determined without inspection by a certified technician. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....

I just bought this washer and dryer. I am having to wait for delivery because the place I bought them from can't get the stacking kit till later this month. I am just trying to have everything I need to install the devices when they arrive. I need to know how much of the drying vent hose to purchase based on where the opening is on the dryer.

Thanks for your help!

We appreciate your interest in this product. The center of the exhaust duct is located 3 5/8” from the base of the dryer cabinet, and 14 1/4" from the right hand side, when looking at the back of the dryer.

Answer: 
I believe the "W" is the exterior color finish of the device. Ours is white and cost $100 less than the stainless steel one we looked at in the store. Seems to work just fine and my wife and I decided the color did not make a difference to us in the laundry room.

Answer: 
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

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