Built-in Convenience

Add the ingenious LG SideKick™ pedestal washer to your LG TWINWash™ compatible washer to tackle two loads of laundry—both large and small—at the very same time.


1.0 cu.ft. Right-Size Capacity

The mighty mini. The LG SideKick™ is specially designed for your small, custom-care laundry loads. You can clean days of sweat-laden spin class gear now rather than waiting for a full load in your regular washer. Your clothes (and family) will thank you.




Magnetic Remote Control*

Just press play. Grab the multi-function remote control RCW1 to start, stop or select a cycle on your LG SideKick™ washer. Plus, it's magnetic, so you can attach it to the side of your washer, dryer or other metal surface.


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.


Made for Each Other

The LG SideKick™ is LG TWINWash™ compatible and made to work with many different LG washers. Is yours one of them? Check out our handy PDF to see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn’t know I needed it til I had it :) I went back and forth before getting this extra washer. I’m SO glad that I did. I always have a couple items that didn’t make it into the laundry and this takes care of it! I’m on a time of use plan and the times vary so I can squeak out another mini load before the rates jump. The only downside is listening for the tune to add fabric softener, although I still LOVE it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Washer for our Daily Exercise Wear We love this washer and use it everyday to clean our daily exercise clothes

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great small washing machine with some flaws Good for small loads but the machine but the water does not fully drain well. After the second wash, there was an odor coming from, what I believe to be, sitting water. Also, detergent/softener must be added into washer. I would recommend this product if it drained water completely to avoid mold and odor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Sidekick I received my new LG Front loader along with the LG Sidekick less than 2 weeks ago thinking that it might be a while before I was able to use the Sidekick. In less than 9 days, I have used the Sidekick 3 times. I had an item or two that I didn't want to use in a full wash cycle and the Sidekick was the perfect answer. All of the items washed came out perfectly. It only has a "warm wash" cycle but that worked for all of my items. Because I wanted the tub to air dry, I did leave the lift open after the wash cycle and I did do a quick wipe of the tub but I don't think that you really need to. I'm so happy that I spent the extra dollars for this piece of electronics.

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!

Can this be used as a stand alone washer without another washer?  I.e. in an RV or travel trailer?

Asked by: Jlowe
I believe it will work just fine. You'll just have to permanently push down the switch on top of the washer to simulate having the upper unit installed.

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
