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.

The Dryer of all dryers

from Wausau, WI, United States

Pros

  • Performance
  • Style/Design

Cons

    Best Uses

      LG continues to shine with its Washer and in this case, dryer! This thing is BIG... almost too big, and works well. Only reason for 4 of 5 stars, is this (and the washer) are needlessly too complicated, as there are about 20 settings for drying and washing. That is probably a big overkill in my opinion.

              No cogent explanation in manual. I tried the steam function but am using trial and error to determine the parameters for this feature. LG marketing touts steam as a huge advantage but the implementation is flawed due to lack of explanation.Seems like a good product otherwise.

                Best Uses

                  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!

                              Why does a dryer of this price caliber claim in the owner's manual to have an "...illuminated control panel" (p. 11) when it doesn't? It is almost impossible to read and to set the functions without a flashlight! If LG wanted to go cheap they could have simply used a light panel with dark labels! The fact that a later model has an LED display is proof that this model is poorly designed, and the online LG image misrepresents the display as clearly readable. IT IS NOT! I rate this machine "average" because in spite of this major user shortcoming it seems to be well built, easy to install, runs smoothly and does a fine job...sad that LG skimped on the most important user aspect of the machine.

                                  Finally, a dryer with a variety of settings that actually lets me dry all my different fabrics at the right settings! I don't have to worry about my specialty items being ruined by too high of temperatures or too rough of tumbling. And everything always comes out dry, I never have things come out with damp spots.

                                      I got this for Christmas. While that might not seem like a great present when it cuts the number of laundry loads in half, uses less water and dries faster without needing to dry on a hot setting it is the best Christmas ever. Absolutely love it. Now I don't mind doing laundry. And we are using way less detergent and shout to get the stains out of our boys clothes
