What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very large capacity Purchased this with the matching washer, absolutely the biggest dryer I have ever owned, very easy to install and use. December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. I love the SteamFresh cycle for sanitizing items I can't wash, such as throw pillows. Two thumbs up! September 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great high capacity washer Love all the features, especially the steam function. The machine is easy to use and quiet. Adjustments to the preprogrammed wash functions are also easy to change. April 14, 2014

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
The NFC Tag On feature on the LG Mega Capacity High Efficiency SteamDryer™ w/ NFC Tag On, Model # DLEX8500V allows you to pair up your smartphones to subsequently download extra programs to add to the ones that are already available on the machine. Once downloaded, you just have to tap your smartphone to the NFC Tag On symbol on the washing machine and it will be added to your appliance. The NFC Tag On feature is also used for the company's Smart Diagnosis feature that helps you identify minor problems with your machine, before it becomes a bigger issue...^IFV

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
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.
