What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a steam dryer Finally got a new dryer and what a difference... Clothes smell much better and can dry anything because the capacity is huge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but very expensive. This is a good clothes dryer but there should be no reason that any clothes dryer is as expensive as a washer which is much more complex. A dryer is a relatively simple machine and should not be priced the same as the washer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great capacity. Steam fresh leaves clothes damp. I wish drum light would stay on longer for loading/unloading and I wish the ENTIRE control panel would light up to make it easier to read. Have used steam fresh several times and clothes come out freshened but damp. Cycle fills up with steam but then drum stops periodically, then restarts. If it is suppose to help reduce wrinkles, why does drum stop periodically? Going to call tech support, but still moving in new home. Capacity is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer This is a very large dryer and has helped speed up the laundry process. Great features! Great sensors that let you know when clothes are ready and they actually are is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dryer - Superb Performance Love the large capacity, as other users have noted. Relatively quiet dryer, and the steam function works pretty well in keeping clothes from getting wrinkled, thus saving on ironing time. Lots of good features, and overall easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and Efficient We have owned our dryer for almost a month now and it has been fantastic. We love how quiet and efficient it is, and also how it adjusts the drying time based on how damp the clothes are. The steam feature is particularly great for getting wrinkles out or just freshening up an item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Dryer I have ever owned Quiet, can dry LARGE loads. Drying King Size sheet sets with blankets is NOT a problem. This dryer is everything the sales person said it would be and more. The Cotton setting is a clothers saver. If an artical of clothing was accidently placed in the dryer that was 100% cotton you just had to throw it away it shrunk so much. With the LG Cotton setting the shrinkage is minimal.

how many btu's do you need for the dryer dlgx8001w

what is the gas load for dryer dlgx8001v

Asked by: nortonjohn
Are you looking for 23,000 BTU?  A 3/8" line will supply that. Keep line as short as possible. These lines normally come in 3', or MAYBE 4' lengths.  Or are you looking for 4-10.5 inches WC for NG?  8-13" WC for propane.

Can you please compare the efficiently of the electric dryer with a propane gas one

I am looking at the 9.0. Steam model and have the option for gas or electric so want to compare the efficiency of the two. Thank you
Asked by: Lisa06831
IN GENERAL, and this may vary with your local costs, natural gas is cheapest, followed by propane and then electric. But again, your local rates drive this.

Does this machine come with the options to be coin operated?

I was told about these machine and was wondering if it would be able to be equipped to be put into a coin operated laundromat setting? If not, does LG make a coin operated machine to be put in such application?
Asked by: hometowncoin
Intended for home use. You should consider something like Speed Queen for commercial use.  Warranty only mentions home use.

We regret the trouble you have experienced with this gas dryer. It is suggested to disconnect the exhaust duct and make sure it is clear. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
