Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only had to have this serviced once. We run this machine day in and day out. It has been a really good washer with a large capacity. We are happy with it! I wish we had not had to service it. It might have been twice it needed service, I cannot remember, but I think it was only once. Buy the extended warranty, for sure.

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.

I wouls like to convert it to use LPG. I noticed there is a part number. How do i order the part? And can i see if the conversion is easy? Could you please provide a link to the instructions? Do i have to completely dismantle the dryer?

Asked by: Vladimir1973
As shipped from the factory, this dryer is configured for use with Natural Gas. It can be converted for use with Liquefied Propane Gas. The correct orifice for LP Gas is part number 383EEL3002D, and must be installed by a qualified gas technician, and should be noted on the dryer itself. Parts and accessories can be obtained through our parts distributor, MCM Electronics. Their contact number, for placing orders, is 800-824-9491. You can also use their website, at http://www.mcmelectronics.com/content/en-US/forms/lg_parts.

How to unlock lg truesteam

Asked by: Newkey
We appreciate your interest in this gas dryer. The only LOCK known on this machine would be the CHILD LOCK feature. Once this CHILD LOCK function is set, it will remain active until it is manually deactivated. Press and hold the EASY IRON button for 3 seconds to deactivate this LOCK mode.

Can you please compare the efficiently of the electric dryer with a propane gas one

I am looking at the 9.0. Steam model and have the option for gas or electric so want to compare the efficiency of the two. Thank you
Asked by: Lisa06831
IN GENERAL, and this may vary with your local costs, natural gas is cheapest, followed by propane and then electric. But again, your local rates drive this.

Does this machine come with the options to be coin operated?

I was told about these machine and was wondering if it would be able to be equipped to be put into a coin operated laundromat setting? If not, does LG make a coin operated machine to be put in such application?
Asked by: hometowncoin
Intended for home use. You should consider something like Speed Queen for commercial use.  Warranty only mentions home use.
