What is the BTU rating of this dryer?

I need to know the BTU rating in order to install some natural gas piping for this dryer.
Asked by: Flogger
You may want to confirm with your Liquid Propane supplier on this, but the BTU rating for the LG Mega Capacity High Efficiency SteamDryer™ w/ NFC Tag On, Model # DLGX8501V is AGA-certified for elevations below 10,000 feet. If you are installing it at an elevation above 10,000 feet, it must be derated by a qualified technician or gas supplier...^IFV

How high are the controls when stacked?

If a this dryer is stacked on the WM8500, how high will the dryer controls be? Will a step ladder be needed for someone who is 5'-7" tall? How about someone 5'-2"? Can the dryer be provided with the controls at the bottom?
Asked by: LagunaBob
Both the LG Mega Capacity High Efficiency SteamDryer™ w/ NFC Tag On, Model # DLGX8501V and the LG Mega Capacity TurboWash™ Washer w/ NFC Tag On, Model # WM8500H*A have a height of 40 4/5" so when they are stacked the total height will be 81.6". The controls for the dryer are about 2 inches from the top of the dryer so they will be about 79" from the floor, that's about 6' 7". The dryer does not come configured in any other way and cannot be provided with the controls at the bottom...^IFV

Can DLGX8501V be used as Electric dryer

Hi, I want to check if my dryer currently hooked up to Gas line be used as Electric dryer instead. If so do I need to shut off the gas line when I switch to electric mode? Also do I need to change any settings when I hook it up to electric supply? Thanks, Srinivas
Asked by: svaranasy
I apologize, but no; a gas dryer cannot be converted to operate as an electric dryer. The gas dryer does not have an electrical heating element to perform in such a manner.
