Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great load capacity I bought this because I love to wash my comforters. Love them smelling clean and fresh so I am constantly washing very large loads. It's great for bulk items and steams excellent. Along with having large capacity loads they are also very bulky and huge! So you want to make sure you have enough space for these bad boys. I have had them for about 2 years now and they are just as good as the day I bought them. No complaints here. Suggestions would be that I wish they were actually the stainless steel color and not dark grey. It's a bummer! I know!!!! OVERALL EXTREMELY SATISFIED WITH MY MACHINES

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Ever This is the WORST dryer ever!! when it works, it works well enough, but in the 1 year I have had it, I have had to replace the high limit thermostat 4 times. After paying such an exorbitant price for this, I don't expect to be paying for parts every few weeks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Have had the dryer for several months. Am disappointed with a few things. First, items are not always dried when the proper cycle is chosen. When you try to select it again to dry it will only run for a few seconds and shut off sensing the clothes are dry when they are not. I've even tried switching to another cycle and the machine stops just the same. So I end up with slightly wet items that i have to put outside or hang up to dry. The panel lights are really hard to read. The steam cycle does not take wrinkles out of clothes that you want to remove without having to iron like my old machine did. The lint trap is flimsy. Lastly the since the washer does not always get clothes etc smelling really fresh, when they are dried, there is now a constant odor after running the dryer like slightly soiled clothes. Mind you I'm an extra clean freak and wash clothes after wearing one time. So I''m not talking about stuff sitting around stinky for days or a week!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a steam dryer Finally got a new dryer and what a difference... Clothes smell much better and can dry anything because the capacity is huge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but very expensive. This is a good clothes dryer but there should be no reason that any clothes dryer is as expensive as a washer which is much more complex. A dryer is a relatively simple machine and should not be priced the same as the washer.

Hi, I have the DLGX8001V and want to know if this will work without gas. Is the electricity good enough or must it be connected to gas outlet to perform properly - thank you

Asked by: Bren73
The LG 9.0 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Dryer with Steam™ Technology (Gas), Model # DLGX8001V will not heat up without gas. It has an igniter which is an electric conductor that works like the element in an electric heater, glowing hot enough to ignite gas. Without gas, there is nothing to ignite...^IFV

Can I use the dryer for Dry cleaning clothes?

Asked by: ChellyS
The Dry Cleaning process involves the use of non-water based solvents to clean fabrics that degrade in water and delicate fabrics that cannot withstand the rough and tumble of a washing machine and clothes dryer. The LG 9.0 cu. ft. Mega Capacity Dryer with Steam™ Technology (Gas), Model # DLGX8001W features LG's Steam technology which allows you to inject fabrics with a swirling jet of hot steam to refresh clothes, reduce static and simplify ironing and assist in the removal of lightly stained spots using the STEAM FRESH™ or SpotClean™ cycles. You will need to refer to the care label on your garments or contact their manufacture to inquire which garments are safe for you to use this technology with. There is an international GINETEX symbol for dry cleaning which is a circle. It may have the letter P or F inside it which indicate what type of solvent is to be used during the dry cleaning process. A bar underneath the circle indicates that only a mild cleaning process is recommended. A crossed-out empty circle indicates that dry cleaning is not permitted.
