What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really enjoyed the side kick thus far. I do all my work out clothes in it. I love being able to wash them at the same time while using the big washer. It saves so much time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BEWARE THE REBATE Beware the LG Rebate "Terms and Conditions" - unless you are one of the very few that actually read every word. You may be like me you and be fooled into thinking that the rebate is available from LG if you buy the product from Home Depot, Best Buy, Sam's, BJ's, Costco among several other stores when in the "Terms and Conditions" in bold but extremely small print states " does not qualify for this mail in offer" - rather at the point of sale. After our rebate submission was rejected by LG, I talked with LG customer service and was told it was not to be since I purchased the product at Home Depot. I should have read the "Terms and Conditions". However, this is tricky advertising from LG since the print is so small showing the exclusions of the offer - even with the large posters in the store I did not see it. Good product so far and I rated it well along with large washer and dryer we purchased as well. Beware the LG rebate offers - they are not what they appear sometimes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't expect to love this! The only reason we bought this is that it didn't cost a whole lot more than the regular pedestal. I didn't expect to use it much, and at first I didn't. I fell in love the first time a laundry emergency came up while I had a load going in the big washer, and now I use it as much as a few times a day. It cleans great, it's pretty quick, and it's quiet. If you're getting pedestals and have kids and/or pets this upgrade is 100% worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space Age! Replaced my old top loader with this new front loader. It is unbelievable! While it's bigger than my old washer, it is sooooo much more quieter! You can barely hear it when it goes into it's spin cycle....sort of sounds like a small turbine....reminds of something the Jetson's would have when I was a kid! The clothes come out feeling so soft and clean.....even better than when they were new! I used to have take my king size comforter to the cleaners to have them wash it. But it fits super easily inside this washer! I could actually add the sheets if I wanted too! But I don't wash the comforter frequently so I just focused on it. It's amazing how little water it uses and gets the clothes so clean! I just installed a new water system for my home. I have well water and the new system makes wonderful soft water, The washer uses a fraction of the water of my old washer which saves me money and time on the maintenance of my new water system! It's super sleek looking too...big...but sleek! It's so easy to fill the detergents, bleach and fabric softener. Setting the controls is super easy too. I especially like being able to wash my whites in the washer and my sox in the sidekick at the same time! It really does make wash days so much easier...I don't dread it anymore!

Where do you put the laundry detergent? As I don't see a dispenser for the 1.0 cu. sidekick pedistal washer.

Asked by: Ctand05
The The LG 1.0 cu. ft. LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer, LG TWINWash™ Compatible, Model # WD200CV is designed to use only High-Efficiency (HE) detergent and requires very little detergent. It comes with a dispenser and measuring device that should always be used for adding detergent. The dispenser holds a maximum of two 2 teaspoons (10g/10cc) of HE detergent. Most normal loads require only 1 teaspoon (5g/5cc) of detergent or filling the dispenser to the halfway line. The detergent is added directly into the drawer before loading your garments. Bleach cannot be used in this machine. The pedestal washer chimes repeatedly before the final rinse so liquid fabric softener can be added to the load, if desired. Only a 1/4 the amount of softener recommended by the manufacturer should be used for a normal load...^IFV

I have upstairs laundry room and need drip pan underneath, It has about 1 inch lip(edge) will it be able to extend the leveling legs enough to open to the draw.

Asked by: greenblm
The LG 1.0 cu. ft. LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer, LG TWINWash™ Compatible, Model # WD200CV does not have enough clearance for you to fit a drip pan underneath. You will need the type of drip pan that the unit can fit into that will have enough clearance so as to not impede opening the draw. The leveling legs are only for leveling the machine and raising them up unnecessarily will cause excessive vibrations...^IFV
