Rated 4 out of 5 by Olddude Owned for 3 Months
We selected an LG dryer because we have had excellent performance from other LG products we own. We have an LG Kimchi chest freezer that is over 20 years old with no maintenance required.
We have owned the LG large capacity dryer for only 3 months so our experiences are time limited. The first problem we encountered was one of. the screws holding the door on would not come loose. The door therefore could not be reversed. On the fourth technician visit the technician was excellent, not average like the first three, and the screw was removed and the door reversed.
The one problem is the control settings panel IS NOT BACK LIT even with the power on!! It is therefore close to impossible to read and make changes in the variable settings. And the auto selected variables, for the preset auto cycle types, is shown with a very bright back lighting which makes reading the other selections even harder to see. I don't understand how LG could make such an obvious mistake...... a very difficult to see, read, and therefore use control panel ??
This problem is the reason I am giving a "4" for features and value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BucksNBrownsBri It's big and steamy!
This dryer works wonders! The steam cycle is awesome! It cleaned our pillows and they smell so fresh and clean. It also does a great job of drying without over-drying! It runs quiet too! Almost never hear the thing run. Oh and it too will tackles your large loads of laundry! This guy is huge!

Rated 5 out of 5 by globalview Does everything it says it does
Set up easy and easy to learn features.
Only owned a month and a half but seems to be well built. Hesitant to order online but everything went real well. Saved a bundle doing that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mizzyhanh cheaply made
blah. I purchase this for less than two years, and it went off on me twice! my cored blew out on me so I had to buy a new one, now my fuse blew up and costing me couple hundred bucks just to get it replace. for as much as i pay for this product, it should have at least more than just a year warranty

Rated 5 out of 5 by bored2tears Excellent companion to the WM8000HVA
We decided to purchase a new washer and dryer set after our 14-year-old set finally started to break down. After copious research and reading up on all the consumer-review sites, we decided to go with the mega-capacity of the WM8000HVA washer and its companion dryer, the DLEX8000V.
We've had them for over a month now and they have performed flawlessly. The mega capacity of both is great because it allows us to wash and dry an entire king-sized set of bedding at once, which was essential - no going to the laundromat in order to wash a king-sized comforter!
We also really like the Steam Clean feature on both the washer AND the dryer - sanitize in the washer, reduce wrinkles or a quick touch up in the dryer? Yes, please!
I assume the the gas version of this would be even more economical to run, but we were already wired for electric, and even with its over-sized capacity, it's still far more efficient than our old one.
