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

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the extra features! My clothes are cleaner while using less detergent. The controls are convenient and easy to use with enough options to cover all your washing needs. It is extremely quiet while in operation and instead of a buzzer it chimes so it easier for me to hear. Rarely use the Pedestal Washer because it is not rated Energy Efficient which I had not noticed before purchasing. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for damp, smelly dishcloths! Now I have a washer reserved for items that I don't like mixing with my personal clothing. After starting the cycle I push pause, add some bleach or disinfectant and allow my dishcloths and dish towels to soak a little before continuing the cycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little washer I've had this washer for about 6 mos. now and I absolutely love it I always have one or two items that can't be washed with the rest of my laundry. It's just the handiest washer ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome little washer! We have had this for several months, and when we bought it we thought it would be more of a novelty than anything. Crazy thing is, we use it a ton! It's great for small loads and loads of delicates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love I've been using my lg washer and dryer for almost a full year now and I absolutely LOVE them. The washer is so efficient. I feel like it washes my clothes very thoroughly and quick. The pedestal washer is also very convenient for whites and under garments or any small load. Definitely recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice add-on but costly I bought this just two months ago. While not knowing its long term reliability, it seems working fine for the first two months. It is very expensive though. You could buy other small load washer for much less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of use This is great for those small needed now loads. Wife loves it for water saving when she has small loads. I'd buy it again.

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.

Why can't I use some form of bleach in the sidekick washer 

Asked by: lescunn
The LG 1.0 cu. ft. LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer, LG TWINWash™ Compatible, Model # WD100CW does not have a bleach dispenser so if you used bleach, any bleach residue that remains in the tub will spoil the next set of garments that you wash that do not require bleach...^IFV
