What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save your money and purchase something else We purchased a new washer and dryer three years ago. The rollers were replaced under warranty about 18 months ago and they need replaced again.The tech that replaced them said all they did on the larger capacity machines was the drum.The rollers,motor,and belt are the same size as smaller machines according to the tech.

Read a lot of reviews on this washer.Have the matching dryer which I love.Needed a larger size washer aftter comparing other brands I decided on this one.So glad I did! Large capacity,quite washing cycle,low vibration while running,and my clothes come out clean.So many features and the tune is adorable at the end of each load.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dryer, except for one HUGE problem So far, this dryer has worked very well. Plenty of cycle selections and plenty of room. The lint trap has a unique envelope design that can hold a ton of lint. But this dryer has a huge problem that you encounter every time you use it. There are touchpad buttons along the bottom and each side of the display on the right. Black writing on dark gray buttons, with a black screen behind it. These selections are impossible to read! My laundry room has an overhead light, but absent a light shining directly on the touchpad, I have to squat down and get up close to make out what they say. There is no back lighting for these buttons. I cannot believe this design made it through product testing.

Is there a dryer rack for this model?

Asked by: Cdull84
Yes, if the unit was purchased new, closed box, it should have been included. ^AC

We were told by the installer that we could not use dryer sheets with our electric LG dryer. Is this true?

Asked by: Buckeye 107
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dryer. Fabric softener and dryer sheets should not be used with this dryer. For LG Laundry machines, the fabric softener is supposed to be run in the washing machine. Improper operations can result in poor cleaning performance. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

What is the dryer blower rate?

Can it push the air 50 feet? More?
Asked by: jjules
It does not specifically indicate the dryer blower rate on the machine itself. It does not blow at high speeds as this would force open the door during the rotating cycle. The blower speed is nominal for the clothes to receieve the heat required to dry.

Does the dryer tub turn in both directions?

Our current dryer tub only turns in one direction - which means if I put a load of jeans or sheets in to dry, they come out as a giant knot. My mom has a different brand which I noticed turns both counterclockwise, and then clockwise, which keeps laundry from coming out in a knot. It also keeps wrinkles at bay. Does this unit's tub turn in both directions, or just one? This is for the DLEX8000W 9 cu ft dryer. Thanks.
I would assume it does in order to keep the clothes wrinkle free upon completion of the drying cycle.

Thermocouple or humidity sensor?

Does this have intelligent sensing while drying your clothes? If so, does it use a thermocouple to accomplish this or a humidity sensor?

What is the flow rate of the dryer?

Asked by: Houseslave
Hi Houseslave. Regrettably, neither the Specifications nor the owner's manual for the LG 9.0 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Dryer with Steam™ Technology (Electric), Model # DLEX8000W list what the flow rate is for this dryer, however, you may be able to get that information from a Call Representative or Product Specialist at LG's Customer Interactive Center (800) 243-0000. They may have access to the engineering notes for this unit that specify what the flow rate is...^IFV
