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 All is good with the product except the crushed ice dispensing that gets caught up and not freely moving through, and the ice that doesn’t pass melts and leaks down the door.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100 Stars! I am a person that watches my bills. I was extremely frustrated with my previous dryer . . . I then purchased my LG washer and dryer and not only has my electric bill gone down, but my water bill has also and my clothes do not have the fuzz balls anymore. I could just keep listing everything that has changed. Clothes smell clean and not like my perfume or my son's cologne, whites are whiter without soaking, clothes dry faster and don't have the melting/burning smell. I've told everyone I talk to about them and even a co-worker went out and bought a set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance Bought LG because of online research and recommendations. It has lived up to all of them. I haven't had the opportunity to use the steam feature yet, but I look forward to it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super clean! I bought this a month ago after realizing this model was discontinued. The newer model has a feature for your phone. Same price. But LG products are great.

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.

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.
