Magnetic Remote Control*

Just press play. Grab the multi-function remote control RCW1 to start, stop or select a cycle on your LG SideKick™ washer. Plus, it's magnetic, so you can attach it to the side of your washer, dryer or other metal surface.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST PURCHASE EVER! My husband bought me this for Christmas, and it is the BEST! Saves me so much time, being able to wash a second small load while simultaneously washing another in the main washer. And it holds so much more than I would have thought. Buy this now, you will not regret it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from mind blowing It's still hard to use 1 tsp of detergent for a load in the sidekick, it just doesn't seem like you are using enough detergent, but you are! Clothes come out clean. I am glad that I purchased this during promotion. It's great when you want to do a small load, which I do quite often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Addition I've owned this pedestal washer for about a month and use this more than the large washer. It's great for undies, socks, a few shirts, workout clothes, etc..... Cuts down on washing time as I can use both washers at the same time. I am happy with this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hidden Gem This little washer has surprised me with its usefulness. When our main washer was broken, the Sidekick got us through, taking care of essentials. When I have a sweater that needs a "handwashing" cycle, I just do it whenever I want, rather than trying to get several to do together in the big washer. And now instead of breaking up my laundry into two medium-sized loads, both run in the big washer, I can do one big load in the big washer and one little load in the Sidekick. I'm glad that we're saving water, and yet still getting it all done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves time and water It saves me time since I can put hand washables in it, such as sweaters.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed It is not a very efficient washing machine. For once it only has one water temp setting, warm. So I cannot wash my cold delicates or dark clothes in there. Second there’s not a separate section to put the detergent. You have to add it to the tub with the clothes. Well the directions say to avoid adding the detergent directly on clothes because it might damage the clothes. There is not much space in there to begin with so you have to push the clothes to the side and add the soap. Not good if your using bleach. The directions say that the machine will let you know when to add fabric softener. It does but it doesn’t let you add it. Pausing the cycle doesn’t unlock it and I have been unable to pry it open no matter what buttons I push. Eventually I end up missing the chance to add the softener. I have to wait for it to finish so I can then restart the machine on a rinse only setting. By this time my regular washing machine has completed washing and there was no need for me to be on standby waiting to add softener. Third the clothes come out of there extremely wrinkled. A sweater that never needs ironing came out with permanent wrinkles. I tried everything to take out those wrinkles, I even resorted to Goggle but nothing worked. I even lost a sweater button in the process. Sweater ruined. Lastly, it doesn’t clean clothes very well. Clothes do not come out looking or smelling washed. Instead it comes out dingy and wrinkled. I end up having to rewash my clothes on the top washer. I just stopped using the sidekick all together. I wish I would have saved my money.

Can the sidekick and compatible washer be installed upstairs laundry room with the combined weight? It's a brand new construction.

Asked by: Killfest4
The LG 1.0 cu. ft. LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer, LG TWINWash™ Compatible, Model # WD100CV weighs 100 lbs. It can be installed under any compatible LG Front Loading Washer that is manufactured after 2009 and regardless of which floor they are installed on, your floor must be strong enough to support the weight of the washer and the pedestal washer when fully loaded without flexing or bouncing. If your floor has too much flex, you will need to reinforce it to make it more rigid. A floor that is adequate for a top-loading washing machine is not adequate enough for a front loading washer due to the difference in spin speed and direction and if not solid enough, your washer will vibrate and you will hear and feel the vibration throughout your house...^IFV

Would both washer and SideKick share the same electrical outlet with an adapter? As the laundry set plus SideKick need total 3 outlets which is not common in laundry room..thx

Asked by: Aslan
There is a warning issued in the owner's manual for LG 1.0 cu. ft. LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer, LG TWINWash™ Compatible, Model # WD100CK that states, "For best performance, plug the washer into its own individual outlet. If necessary, use a new, UL-listed 3-prong adapter or 3-wire extension cord with a 3-prong (grounding) plug rated at no less than the branch circuit. Do not use an extension cord longer than three feet. Failure to follow these warnings can result in serious injury, fire, electric shock, or death. The outlet must be grounded in accordance with current wiring electric codes and regulations. Time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended."...^IFV

What type of water is supposed to be used when running the Rinse/Spin cycle? Cold, warm, or hot? The manual does not indicate anything for this option. Thank you.

Asked by: WD100CK
We appreciate your interest in this washer. The pedestal washer would do a cold water rinse.
