What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine We’ve had our dryer for about a month and couldn’t be happier! My old dryer was 9 yrs old and I’m so happy not to have to run the dryer twice now haha. I keep being impressed with how fast the cycles are, it’s seems to take only a fraction of the time I am used to and the clothes are perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine This dryer has exceeded our expectations. King sized sheets and blankets are completely dry and do not get tumbled into a wet ball. The capacity is amazing. We haven't used the steam feature yet, but am sure it will perform as advertised. My son and daughter have the same machine and we are all extremely pleased with the performance

How much vertical clearance is required between the top of the dryer (DLEX8100V) and a 12" cabinet mounted above it?

Asked by: jas00
The diagrams on the left on page 13 refer to a closet installation. The diagram on the right show a cabinet install that indicates 0" top clearance. I'm installing in a laundry room with adequate clearance in front, back and sides. I have a 12" cabinet that is installed above the unit. What top clearance is required for a non-closet, non-cabinet install?
