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.
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.
Noise: This score was determined by a panel of judges who listened while machines dried an 8-pound load, measuring both sound quality and volume.
Unbiased: Retailers cannot influence placement.
Ad-free: As an integrated part of Consumer Reports, you shop in a completely ad-free environment.
New products only: You will never find used or refurbished products for sale.
