What people are saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from While working! While under warranty it’s great. Purchased extra warranty day of purchase. Once it need service outside of warranty service was horrible. Customer acts like you’re a problem customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for us We had a prior LG dryer that we loved and, following a move, found our new one. We are very satisfied by nearly everything about the dryer. The many, many settings are occasionally overwhelming, and not having a lighted panel is a pain at times. I'd also love to have the tub light stay on longer or be available as a push button would be great. We like the steam freshening for textiles (pillows, comforter, winter sweaters, etc.); this is a really great option. Thanks for the solid manufacturing and reliability. We did not get the flat drying rack that should have come with it and our sales person has not been able to get help with this in the five months we've been nagging her about it. Finally, we just bought one from an outside vendor. This is our only complaint, though, and is not likely to come up for others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Lasting and Durable I bought this dryer 8 1/2 years ago and it still lives up to its name and performance.

How do you reset after check filter feature shuts it off?

Can someone answer how long the DLEX8500V model was available and why it was discontinued? I was looking to purchase one, never used from an individual but wanted more information on the model.

Asked by: JonLG24
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. This particular model should have been available for the span of about a year. This model has not been discontinued, so much as replaced by different models with different feature sets. Product failures are not common, with this unit, but should something happen, we are still ready to assist with this model. Please note, however, that a product purchased from an individual, rather than from an authorized retailer, carries no manufacturer’s warranty.

Ck filter light flashes even though it's clean. Frustrating how can I reset? Notice lg is getting bad marks for this. 

Asked by: Dask
We appreciate your interest in this electric dryer. According to the information in your owner’s manual, the DISPLAY panel will show CHECK FILTER when the dryer is turned on as a reminder to check the filter. It turns off when the START/PAUSE button is pressed. This is normal operation.

I found the dryer shooting out stream of water instead of vaporized steam. Anything wrong?

Asked by: Steam
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this electric dryer. Check to ensure that heat is generated normally in this dryer, and that the water is fresh and not distilled. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional information in this matter.

My dryer will not make a sound when it's done how do I turn it on

Asked by: Rustybusta2
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this electric dryer. If the End of Cycle Signal does not sound when it should, then it is suggested that the SIGNAL option may have been deactivated. Press the SIGNAL button repeatedly, on the display, until the desired volume setting has been achieved.
