What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I was skeptical of the value of a Sidekick. I can honestly say that I love the convenience and have put it to extensive use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting design, needs a stronger water pump The price is not bad on this pedestal, which also acts as a small washing machine. However, the water pump and spin cycle needs to be stronger to perform more optimally at ejecting water from a small load of laundry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the sidekick Bought this with my washer and dryer about a month ago. It is great for light weight little loads. My grandkids are getting potty train and the underwear that they get wet I throw them in atvthe end of the day. Best thing ever. But do wish it was on the top and not the bottom. But over all worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! One of the reasons we purchased the LG Front Load washer was bacause of the Sidekick. I am so glad we did! I can get 2 loads of laundry done at one time and I no longer have to run a big machine for just a couple of items. It's also great for washing my running shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but worth it. This is the greatest add on you can get to the LG washer. I know you can buy a large washer for the same price, but if you don't have room for a second washer in your laundry room, this does the trick. Small loads go in here, large loads in the big washer. Both can run at the same time. It really cuts down washing time. Its only fault is that fabric softener must be added manually. The machine announces a series of chimes to let you know when to add it. When this first occurred, my wife thought it was a fault with the machine, as it stops for a few minutes with water in the tub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from small but useful Love this little washer. Perfect for socks and undies. or other things you don't mixed in with the main load

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a useful washer to have I have a new baby and having this small washer is so helpful. Often times the baby will soil her clothes and we don't want those soiled clothes to sit around waiting for a full load of laundry to accumulate. This small washer allows us to wash just a few things quickly without wasting the water of using the full size machine. Great for anyone with babies!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but not needed for our usage I always want the latest and greatest. This one for me was a waste of money. we don't use it, half the time I forget its there.if you are constantly washing clothes it may serve you well. But not for us.

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.

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?

I have a second floor washer. They came and installed it today but because we have a drop pan for the washer we can't open the drawer to load it. Is there a solution for this? Can it be raised?

Asked by: Frustrated washer
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this Companion Washing Machine. Depending on the depth of the drip pan, it may be possible to raise the leveling feet of the pedestal washer, although the lower the unit sits, the more stable it will be. For additional information, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
