The Art of Essence

LG SIGNATURE stays true to the essence,
delivering a new sense of life for the most discerning individual.

LG SideKick™ for small loads that are big deal

The compact LG Sidekick™ is specially designed for your small, custom-care laundry loads. So you can clean three days of sweat-laden spin class gear now rather than waiting for a full load in your regular washer.

Magnetic Remote Control

Grab the multi-function remote control to start, stop or select a cycle on your LG Sidekick™ washer from the comfort of your favorite chair. Plus, it's magnetic, so you can attach it to the side of your washer, dryer or other metal surface to ensure it doesn't get lost in the daily shuffle.

Specialty cycles

With special cycles for Intimates, Hand Wash and Active Wear, each setting is designed to deliver a thorough clean and proper fabric care for items you prefer to wash separately. There's even a convenient TubClean Cycle to keep your LG SideKick™ fresh, clean and in tip-top condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WD205CK Sidekick Pedestal Washer Glad I purchased this as part of the entire package of the LG Signature Series washer and dryer. Love the quality and the features. Using the sidekick for small loads or delicates is fantastic

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to unload I purchased this model over the front loading washer because they said that you needed to keep the door opened on the front loader or it would mildew. I was very disappointed though when I realized that I could not unload the washer without using a stool. I am 5 ft 2" tall and I can not reach the bottom of the washer to unload the laundry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised by it We had our 20 year old Neptune die on us and we found the LG line to be great. Firstly, they work great. The side kick is handy for my bike clothes. The drawer is also perfect for dirty bike stuff so I don't drag them up to our laundry baskets. Also, our half bath is only accessible by going through the laundry area and the LG' s look really impressive in these colors. The tune it plays when done is cute too. They are fairly quiet and clean great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best little secret The greatest thing in this world. I didn't think I would even use it but I use it non stop . It's great to not have to run the big washer for a small load too.

What is the difference between this sidekick and the normal black stainless steel one?

Can I put this under a dryer

Will the sidekick work without being attached to the washing machine?  I would like to put it in my kitchen to wash things.

Asked by: Arnissa
put the power interlock bracket over the stacking switch and use the two black screws to secure it. then remove shipping materials and screw down the top cover. install drain and water hoses and then it can be used without a front loader.
