About - LG DLEX5680V

The LG DLEX5680V is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric dryer models like the DLEX5680V are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Drying performance:
This score combines performance on three types of laundry loads of different sizes and fabric mixes: A 12-lb. load, predominantly cotton, representing a family's large weekly load; an 8-lb. load of cotton/polyester blend clothing; and a 3-lb. load of synthetic delicates, women's pajamas, nightgowns, bras and underwear.

Capacity:
Among the models we tested, drum volume varied from about 6 to 8.0 cu. ft.

Convenience:
For this measurement, we judged controls and ergonomics, such as ease of loading and unloading, servicing the lint filter, whether the door could clear a tall basket, and whether the machine has a raised edge to contain spills.

Comment:
Worked fine at first. Recently our drying times have increased dramatically! Tried drying 6 towels and I put it on high heat setting and it took me 2.5 hours to dry them! Called Conns service department and they came out. These guys really don't know what they are doing though. He keeps telling me its the ventilation system, so I replace the hose from the dryer to the wall. Still not drying. Call LG and they run diagnostics on dryer and they tell me my ventilation is fine. Call Conns and they send out a repairman. Replaced the panel on dryer. Still didn't work. My Dad came out and tested the circuit breaker. Found that the dryer was only pulling off one of the two legs of the circuit! 30 amp fuse and the dryer was only using 6 amps on the one leg! Told me the heating element was bad. Called Conns and the repairman came out yesterday and ordered a heating element. Asked him if he was going to check the circuit breaker and he said he didn't need to. In fact, they never have!<br />Now we have to wait a week for the element!
