What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A dryer for all my clothes Finally, a dryer with a variety of settings that actually lets me dry all my different fabrics at the right settings! I don't have to worry about my specialty items being ruined by too high of temperatures or too rough of tumbling. And everything always comes out dry, I never have things come out with damp spots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best dryer I have ever owned! I LOVE this dryer! It's very quiet, efficient, has a huge capacity, a great range of drying options and features, and an attractive design.

It's stated on the box and on the web site that the dryer supports 240v at 60hz cycle .I have imported this dryer in a country that only supports 240v at 50hz cycle. From a technicians perspective by looking at the motor itself can this motor support 50hz

Asked by: Trippy
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. As we are not technicians, we cannot confirm the compatibility of a US motor with an international electrical current. Products released in the United States are only recommended for use within the US. Service and support for US products will not be available in other countries.

is the LG DLEX 8500V stackable?

Asked by: washerdryer
Yes, it is stackable with the matching washer using the optional stacking kit. These are big units, so beware that stacking will place the controls very high on the top unit.

What is the dimension to locate the dryer vent? Please provide exact dimension to center of dryer vent and diameter of dryer vent.

Why can I not find this on your website
Asked by: jedson
The center of the back vent is 13.5 inches from the right side of the dryer (15.5 inches from the left), and 5 inches from the bottom/floor. It is designed for a standard 4inch vent. It also has 2 optional vent locations on the bottom back of each side panel. These each measure 5.25 inches from the back and 4.25 from the bottom/floor. The bottom/floor measurement may vary slightly relative to how you level the feet.

what does NFC tag ON mean

electric dryer dlex8500v true steam
Asked by: mccloud
It's supposed to allow the LG Smart Laundry app on Android to download custom cycles via Near Field Communications. It would be very nice for setting up a custom dry cycle since this dryer has a 'load' of wonderful options. Unfortunately the DLEX8500V and all other 'Tag On' models have been excluded from the very App that makes it work. So for now the feature does absolutely nothing. Hopefully they will fix this feature within their App to make it functional.
