What People Are Saying

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 73 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 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. June 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! May 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has all the features you need The dryer will take out stains,because I tried it with a work shirt. March 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the steam dryer. Love the gas version. This is by far the best dryer I have ever owned. I love the capacity. I can put a full comforter and a bunch more items. February 14, 2015

How often does one need to fill water reservoir?

For the LG Dryer, DLGX8001W model, it contains a water reservoir. I am wondering how often I will need to fill this tank if dryer is normally used.

Thank you.

Answer: 
The water reservoir is used only to make steam for the steam setting. If you are not using the steam feature, no need to put water in the tank! However, if you do use this feature, make sure that you empty the excess water remaining in the tank after use. Just shake up the water through the screened filling opening port. The remaining drops will dry on their own.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this dryer and its features. It is recommended to fill the water reservoir with fresh water for each use of the steam feature. If this is not done, then the previously used water may not provide proper results.

Where is the Steam Option Button

In the owner's manual it indicates that to add steam to a standard cycle one press the steam option button. Where is this button? I have the 9.0 cubic gas dryer.

Mainly, I would like to be able to use the steam option with a regular cycle. Thanks for any help!

Answer: 
You can add steam to a standard WASH cycle on the washer. On the dryer, there is no need to add steam to a standard cycle. The dryer has a steam fresh cycle. It's on the round knob, bottom left. You use that if you forget the dry clothes for a few hours, or days, and want to refresh them and remove the wrinkles. Just turn to that cycle, press start, and the dryer will warm and steam the clothes. 20 minutes is the default length of the cycle, and I have found it works great.

Answer: 
The REDUCE STATIC option injects steam late in the drying cycle to reduce the static electricity caused by dry fabrics rubbing together. The EASY IRON option also provides uniform, properly dampened fabrics for ironing, which can save time and make ironing easier. These options are to be used when you wish to inject STEAM as an option to another cycle.

Answer: 
We do not recommend using dryer sheets at any time, as the fibers of the sheets can cover the moisture sensors and cause them to not function properly.

The "Measure First" document said I need at least a 30" opening to fit this through. My narrowest doorway is 29.5". I see the product width is 29" which makes me believe it will fit (a tight squeeze but possible). Can anyone confirm if this is viable?

Answer: 
I also have a doorway width of 29.5" and I thought it wouldn't go through either and had a second route for installation planned. However, when the installers came, they looked at the doorway and said "No problem". They were correct. It was tight but it made it through.

Answer: 
That is a difficult question to answer. we can only go by the specifications on the official documents that are available for this product. Those measurements take into account that you will need a little extra space to move the unit around your space.
