About - LG DLGX8001[V]

The LG DLGX8001[V] is part of the clothes dryer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, gas dryer models like the DLGX8001[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.

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

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.

Don't be fooled by good ratings
Adjustable Temperature
Large Capacity
Customer Service Terrible
Leaves Clothes Damp
Repairs Impossible
Best Uses
Our machine has never worked since the day we got it. At the completion of the cycle, no matter which one is selected, the clothes are damp. Getting satisfaction from customer service is nonexistent. We have been trying to get it repaired since 7/1/13. Don't buy an LG!
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
