What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The total package I bought this as it was highly rated and supposed to be energy efficient. After 6- months of use, the stylish looking dryer, is used multiple times a day, (toddler in home), and has met or exceeded our expectations. We really like and appreciate the Steam Fresh feature! The lint filter is also extremely effective.

Good morning, please let me know vent connection size and CFM being exhausted for this product. We are engineering firm. This dryer was specified on one of our residential projects. Your help is appreciated.

We appreciate your interest in this gas dryer. The vent on this dryer is a standard 4” diameter cylindrical dryer duct. According to the owner’s manual, it is recommended to only use a rigid or semi-rigid metal duct. The Cubic Feet per Minute (CFM) has not been specified on this dryer.

How high are the controls when stacked?

If a this dryer is stacked on the WM8500, how high will the dryer controls be? Will a step ladder be needed for someone who is 5'-7" tall? How about someone 5'-2"? Can the dryer be provided with the controls at the bottom?
Asked by: LagunaBob
Both the LG Mega Capacity High Efficiency SteamDryer™ w/ NFC Tag On, Model # DLGX8501V and the LG Mega Capacity TurboWash™ Washer w/ NFC Tag On, Model # WM8500H*A have a height of 40 4/5" so when they are stacked the total height will be 81.6". The controls for the dryer are about 2 inches from the top of the dryer so they will be about 79" from the floor, that's about 6' 7". The dryer does not come configured in any other way and cannot be provided with the controls at the bottom...^IFV

Can DLGX8501V be used as Electric dryer

Hi, I want to check if my dryer currently hooked up to Gas line be used as Electric dryer instead. If so do I need to shut off the gas line when I switch to electric mode? Also do I need to change any settings when I hook it up to electric supply? Thanks, Srinivas
Asked by: svaranasy
I apologize, but no; a gas dryer cannot be converted to operate as an electric dryer. The gas dryer does not have an electrical heating element to perform in such a manner.
