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 Handy to have around! The SideKick has come in handy when I only had a couple of items to wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time saver! I have owned this and been using this mini machine for month and a half and love it! I use it was much as my full size. I put small loads in it, while running my regular size washer and I get my laundry done in twice the time. I wash things that need to be hung to dry other times I throw socks and underware in the bottom because I don't want to wash them with other stuff but put towels in the top then I dry them together. I could probably live without it but I would definitely cry!! My only con is I wish it had a hot water wash option

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine This machine is incredible. If someone is using the big machine can wash smaller load underneath. Hand washing feature is nice. Remote control is the icing on the cake

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This little guy is wort the money. It has really helped speed up the laundry process and works so well on those short loads. I have also used it for my bras and they come out looking brand new! Feels great not having to hand wash my bras anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SideKick I bought this appliance about 2 months ago and I am so glad I did. My father is in assisted living and I do his laundry three times a week. They are small loads and the SideKick is perfect for those loads. I also have a new grandson who visits often and the SideKick is great for the blankets and bibs he uses at my house. I would highly recommend this product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It SUCKS! This washer constantly gets stuck in the locked position and the clothes are stuck in there and you can't get them out.

Can you use the side kick if you stack your washer and dryer?

Asked by: Jlemay
The LG 1.0 cu. ft. LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer, LG TWINWash™ Compatible, Model # WD100CW is designed to be installed under a compatible LG Front Load Washer, just like a regular LG Pedestal and just like a regular pedestal, it cannot be used under a stacked washer/dryer. That would be too much weight for it to support...^IFV

It is leaving water after it has been done for over five minutes. States after 4 minutes it dispenses the remaining water and it is not.

Asked by: Ttracey
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this washing machine. If this device is not draining properly, then the washer may be experiencing a clog in the drain or the pump. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

Can I stack a washer and dryer on top of this pedestal washer? I understand obviously it will be taller to get to the dryer controls. 

Asked by: Blackbear
I apologize, but no; none of our pedestals are designed for a stacked washer and dryer to be installed on them. This includes the pedestal washer.
