What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product I love, love, love my sidekick. What a time saver. The ability to run a small load at the same time that I am washing a full load is wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for small and quick loads! I bought this because I thought it would be great to be able to wash my workout clothes quickly afterwards without them smelling up the house and being gross waiting for enough clothes to make a load. This little washer is impressive!!! It has not only helped with this issue but also with whites (because we never have enough for a full load until 2 weeks later), unintentional children accidents, quick cleaning of a guests items, and so much more. I absolutely do not regret my decision to buy it and will definitely suggest to everyone I talk to! Thanks LG!!! You're a time saver!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pedestal Washer Sweats / has moisture I bought this pedestal washer 2 months ago and after the first wash and despite wiping it dry and leaving the door open, once you close it sweats or has moisture. I’ve even leaved the door open for a full week. Makes no difference. There also is water in the bottom of the washer drum you can hear when you move it around, however, that apparently is normal and necessary. I would think the water in the drum is causing the sweating/ moisture. I use HE detergents, followed all instructions. After only one wash and now 2 months of this issue not seeming to go away with everything I have tried, I'm not sure I would recommend this product. Hopefully the service person fixes the issues. Not pleased with service either... some of us have unusual schedules, and work a distance from where we live. So, after having issues with their products (both the front load and the pedestal washer only after the first wash and not of my doing that anyone can tell me, they expect customers to be around for a half a day... which means for some people loss of pay. Just does not make sense. I do like the convenience of the pedestal, it’s appearance, and the features. But this issue of it having moisture that does not go away undoes all the good stuff. If they can’t resolve it, I would not recommend it. VERY DISSAPPOINTED.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice addition The pedestal washes small loads quickly and well, plus it provides a stable base for the washer unlike some hollow pedestals. My only complaint is the lack of a hot water wash.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from rusting My washer is barely a year old and due to some minor scratches is rusting in the wash bin. It is within the warranty period but LG does not cover it and there is not a paint for stainless steel to cover it. My extended warranty bought through Best Buy doesn't cover it either as it is cosmetic.

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.
Date published: 2017-05-03
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

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

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.

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
