About - LG DLEX8000[V]

The LG DLEX8000[V] is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric dryer models like the DLEX8000[V] 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:
Soon after I bought this in 07/2012, I accidentally put on the child lock by leaning against it and had to call the company for help....the man helping me said...oh, by the way, you know you shouldn't use any dryer sheets in the dryer because it will ruin the sensor...<br />Well why didn't this information get put in the brochure or better yet as a warning before you buy in order to make an informed purchase! Well, I use dryer sheets occasionally and sure enough the sensor started malfunctioning on certain loads. I had to compensate by using other settings. It is noisy, too. And it is unusually large. I wish I didn't buy this dryer...and washer, which is worse!

Comment:
Owned this dryer for two months and it already broke down. Dryer will not heat up. Luckily I sprung for the store's protection plan so I don't have to deal with LG's horrible warranty coverage. Do yourself a favor and buy something made in America and probable less expensive!!
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
