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.

What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sidekick came with the 4 peice package and love it love it so far works great good delivery much better than my old one

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Addition We have had this machine and it has been an excellent addition. My daughters use it for smaller loads. It does a great job of cleaning, runs quietly, and makes completing the laundry much faster. It has been reliable for the six months that I've had it. I would highly recommend it and certainly purchase it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Washer, even the one underneath. The washer is super. It can take very large loads and small loads. With the kids in playing baseball and softball you can wash a large load in the regular washer and the uniforms in the washer below. The best money we could spend. Very easy to clean filter.

Can this be used on the bottom when your washer dryer is stacked? I know it would make dryer controls much higher but i have a step stool and husband is really tall. 

Asked by: Wilburnnnn
The LG 1.0 cu. ft. LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer, LG TWINWash™ Compatible, Model # WD200CV cannot be installed under a stacked washer and dryer. That is too much weight for it to support...^IFV

I can not open the pedestal washer while the top washer is running. This means I can't add fabric softener to the bottom load if I am running both. Is there a trick?
