Built-in Convenience

Add the ingenious LG SideKick™ pedestal washer to your LG TWINWash™ compatible washer to tackle two loads of laundry—both large and small—at the very same time.

1.0 cu.ft. Right-Size Capacity

The mighty mini. The LG SideKick™ is specially designed for your small, custom-care laundry loads. You can clean days of sweat-laden spin class gear now rather than waiting for a full load in your regular washer. Your clothes (and family) will thank you.


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.

Specialty Cycles

Hand wash care, now hands free. With special cycles for Intimates, Hand Wash and Active Wear, each setting is designed to deliver a thorough clean and proper fabric care for your items. There's even a convenient Tub Clean cycle to keep your LG SideKick™ fresh and in tip-top condition.

Made for Each Other

The LG SideKick™ is LG TWINWash™ compatible and made to work with many different LG washers. Is yours one of them? Check out our handy PDF to see. 


What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient and great features We bought this less than a month ago and love it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome workhorse So handy to use for small loads in between fill washes or for delicates while big washer is washing full load. LG washer is great, but Best Buy installers were the worst! Would not but from Best Buy again - it took 3 different installations & 3 different machines before they got it to work without flooding my laundry room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my new "little" best friend Love the convenience of being able to safely and with confidence wash just a few "special" items, together, without waiting to fill the larger machine - The proof is that I accidentally placed my (expensive) Wolford cashmere shawl in the sidekick and to my great surprise it came out better then perfect! What a savings on my cleaning bill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a time saver We are empty nesters now but there is always plenty of laundry to do. With this extra washer it’s a real time saver and we can get out to enjoy time together much sooner than before. It also is very good at cleaning these small loads.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very practical for small loads I Haven't been able to install it under my LG front loader washer because of the weight and lack of space, so I have it on the front. It's very simple to operate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding I purchased the sidekick to go along with my LG washer. At first I wasn't sure how much use the sidekick would get, well I was wrong I use it everyday. A small but mighty washer. The direct drive motor is a plus with fewer moving parts. It also features a stainless steel drum. The sidekick cleans exceptional. Now you can not stuff a full size load inside(that's why you haven a full size machine), its perfect for a few items. A wash my bathing suits, exercise clothes, intimates, delicates and table cloths. A convenient add on to my washer. The washer cups with a measure cup to ensure you use the right amount of liquid detergent. I love my sidekick, makes laundry life easier. I run both the side kick and main washer at the same time. I can even smart diagnosis to troubleshoot. I recommend the sidekick in a heartbeat. I wish I could give it more then five stars. I know it's just a washer but it's an exceptional washer that you need. I am waiting for my washer to break in our other house so I can replace it with a LG Washer and of course a sidekick.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG Sidekick Review I have enjoyed my new LG washing machine combo purchase for approximately 3 weeks now. There are several things that have helped to reinforce my decision to purchase the SideKick. I typically have small delicate loads that I do not want to wash with other items. The SideKick is perfect for this kind of use. I appreciate the ability to run two loads simultaneously, which helps to finish my laundry sooner. I no longer think twice about running a load of very few items as I have already used it to wash one thing only. This feature has given me flexibility and helps me to keep on top of the laundry. I am pleased with the job it is doing. My clothing is coming out as clean as it did from my old agitator washing machine. I am excited that the water requirements are much less because this should help to lower my monthly water bill. I have had only one concern. I can hear residual water that has remained in the outer tub when I move the inner tub to dry it out and there is condensation inside the inner tub even after having dried it out with a towel the previous day. While not seriously concerned, I do not want any mold to develop on the seal of the lid that might cause a foul odor. We have smelled odors coming from the older front load washing machines of friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've Got A Winner! Thank you LG for this opportunity to tell my fellow launderers about this wonderful addition to your appliance line-up! Too often I've had to waste water and increase my utiity bill washing personal loads of laundry. Not to mention the damage done to my lingerie and other fine washables using the less than 'delicate' cycle in most regular washers. The side-kick is a perfect addition today's appliance dilemmas. Now I can actually wash my finer items delicately or get the soil from my work out wear before it has a chance to set in. Bravo, LG!

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.
