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.

This dryer is the fastest we have ever dried our cloths. The extra size tub (almost twice the size of the washer) allows excellent air circulation around the cloths. I have checked the dryer several times thinking it still had time on the cycle only to find the cloths already dry. The dryer is not the bottleneck it used to be with my old set. Love it.
As with any dryer, large blankets will occasionally need to be untwisted to facilitate drying but the drying time is still much quicker. The light in the unit (and the washer) are a good feature too.

I like that the loads are actually dry at the end of the cycle. I wish the settings were a bit easier to see. The lighting on the settings is not adequate. I am still learning how to use the steam settings.

I love this dryer. It dries super quick. For a family of 7, I can get laundry done so much more quickly. It has lots of settings options. My family likes the chime letting you know it is done.

It is amazing how fast your clothes dry , and even better, my king size comforter dries a lot faster than my last dryer. The sensor is spectacular, my clothes are 100% dry every time i pull them out of the dryer, and the steam option is incredible! No need for ironing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Larry A quality dryer-- does it all well.
We've owned an LG dryer for years; this 9.0 cu ft model is our second. I can evaluate it against both other dryers we've owned and the next-smaller LG model (5.0 Cu Ft#. Overall: This is an excellent dryer, and there is little negative to say. Recommend the pedestal, as the profile is quite low, and if users are of any height, it is a long reach downward and to the back of this machine. The pedestals are expensive, but they make access much easier. Be careful not to get any liquid on the pedestal mechanism, as it can rust and become difficult to slide the drawers out. Regaerdless, we recommend the DLEX8000V dryer. Price: This is an expensive piece of equipment, but retailers will occasionally offer a significant discount that makes the dryer purchase closer to economical. Quality: The basic question is, does the machine do the drying job quickly and for a variety of items? In the case of the 9.0 cu ft model, the answers are both clearly "yes." It has a number of features that the smaller model doesn't, including the steam feature, spot cleaning, a precise, reduced time cycle when you only need a small amount of drying #not on the smaller model# and especially, enormous capacity. Performance: This dryer accurately senses moisture levels and stops exactly when the job is done. Never had to do anything a second time. Better than the smaller model. Efficiency: Including quietness of operation with accuracy of automatic moisture sensing drying. Behind a closed room door, it is barely possible to hear the machine operating. Much quieter than the smaller model. Appearance: Partly because they are larger and thus fit snugly to fill our entire available space, these well-built items exude modernness, effectiveness and class. As dryers go, the DLEX8000V is quite attractive. Reliability: Owned this dryer for only a bit more than 6 weeks, but I expect it will last a long time from the solid appearance, quietness and efficiency of its operation. We did not have as good results with our previous, smaller model, perhaps because the loads we subjected it to were beyond its capacity. The drum in the smaller model developed a jagged hole that caught small items, and the drum began to operate erratically in a seemingly eliptical fashion rather than the smooth, circular fashion of the DLEX8000V . Maintenance: The filter is very effective but a bit more work to clean than on the smaller model. There's a clip that has to be released to remove lint, and given its larger size, it's easier to drop the lint onto the floor while removing it. Fun to operate: This isn't a criterion that applies to a dryer; neither would be operating smell or taste after clothes are dried. However, several family members have watched our matching washing machine operate with considerable fascination.
