      We've owned an LG dryer for years; this 9.0 cu ft model is our second. I can evaluate it against both other dryers we've owned and the next-smaller LG model (5.0 Cu Ft#. Overall: This is an excellent dryer, and there is little negative to say. Recommend the pedestal, as the profile is quite low, and if users are of any height, it is a long reach downward and to the back of this machine. The pedestals are expensive, but they make access much easier. Be careful not to get any liquid on the pedestal mechanism, as it can rust and become difficult to slide the drawers out. Regaerdless, we recommend the DLEX8000V dryer. Price: This is an expensive piece of equipment, but retailers will occasionally offer a significant discount that makes the dryer purchase closer to economical. Quality: The basic question is, does the machine do the drying job quickly and for a variety of items? In the case of the 9.0 cu ft model, the answers are both clearly "yes." It has a number of features that the smaller model doesn't, including the steam feature, spot cleaning, a precise, reduced time cycle when you only need a small amount of drying #not on the smaller model# and especially, enormous capacity. Performance: This dryer accurately senses moisture levels and stops exactly when the job is done. Never had to do anything a second time. Better than the smaller model. Efficiency: Including quietness of operation with accuracy of automatic moisture sensing drying. Behind a closed room door, it is barely possible to hear the machine operating. Much quieter than the smaller model. Appearance: Partly because they are larger and thus fit snugly to fill our entire available space, these well-built items exude modernness, effectiveness and class. As dryers go, the DLEX8000V is quite attractive. Reliability: Owned this dryer for only a bit more than 6 weeks, but I expect it will last a long time from the solid appearance, quietness and efficiency of its operation. We did not have as good results with our previous, smaller model, perhaps because the loads we subjected it to were beyond its capacity. The drum in the smaller model developed a jagged hole that caught small items, and the drum began to operate erratically in a seemingly eliptical fashion rather than the smooth, circular fashion of the DLEX8000V . Maintenance: The filter is very effective but a bit more work to clean than on the smaller model. There's a clip that has to be released to remove lint, and given its larger size, it's easier to drop the lint onto the floor while removing it. Fun to operate: This isn't a criterion that applies to a dryer; neither would be operating smell or taste after clothes are dried. However, several family members have watched our matching washing machine operate with considerable fascination.

      We were really excited for the steam features of this dryer. Sadly, they don't work as promised. My husband did the Fresh Steam on 3 pairs of khakis and they came out very wrinkled; way worse than going in. This happens on his work shirts too and everything else we tried it with. Plus, you always end up with a puddle of water under the front, which is "normal for this feature" if you read the manual. You can't change the temperature level on any of the settings, and "normal dry level" always leaves clothes damp. The only good thing is the capacity.

      I love this dryer. It dries super quick. For a family of 7, I can get laundry done so much more quickly. It has lots of settings options. My family likes the chime letting you know it is done.

              I like that the loads are actually dry at the end of the cycle. I wish the settings were a bit easier to see. The lighting on the settings is not adequate. I am still learning how to use the steam settings.

                  Comments about LG White Mega Capacity Electric SteamDryer:

                  My primary reason for buying this, and the companion washer, was my frustration when drying a king size bedspread. This dryer gets it dry in one reasonably timed cycle, and with no wrinkles. You don't have to schedule an entire day to dry large bulky articles, no multiple cycles, no unbunching and redrying. Being the mother to 2 large filthy dogs, I need to do multiple loads of bed and sofa covers every day. What a time and sanity saver!

                          We have four children and host exchange students. My wife was doing upwards of 17 loads of laundry a week. Its now 8! The dryer dries clothes quickly and quietly! It is on a second floor in between bedrooms and above the living room. When it is running, we cannot hear it in the other rooms. We're saving money on electricity as well (this compared to a 6yr old dryer). Excellent buy!

                                The lint filter could be designed to empty easier. No difficulties removing and replacing, but too many separate sections makes removing the lint more of a chore than it needs to be.

                                Service and delivery comments:

                                Great delivery service. Recommend the white glove service for large appliances. Worth the extra cost.
