What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dryer. Clothes get dry really fast We bought this a couple of months back. It is a great dryer. For towels, we used to run our old dryer for close to 160 min. But the LG dryer does the job in about 50 min. It is not very loud and we also love the various settings and options available for different types of clothes. Overall, we are very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it so far. I purchased one month ago and said far everything works great. Fast drying time and so many options that I have not yet used. Holds a large amount of clothes with no problems. Still learning all the features but easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent Dryer that has all the features! We bought this dryer along with the matching washing machine for our new home after having great experiences with previous LG laundry equipment. This dryer has it all -- great capacity, really easy to use touchscreen menu, ton's of features and drying cycles/options. We are very pleased with the dryer's performance and low natural gas utilization. A great buy and would recommend highly. We bought our machines, including the drawer bases from Costco and were pleased with their service and delivery as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of using My wife is so please with the way this machine works. So far there has been no problems. Just to be on the safe side thought we purchased an extended warranty on this product, but I doubt will ever have to use it.

Does it run on electric and gas as an option or just gas? May want to add gas on the future but only have electric now.

This model DLGX8101V  is a gas dryer. Either you get an electric dryer or gas. Not both
