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.
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.

Perfect fit for my LG.The sidekick is perfect for small loads, or to run with the main washer my active wear clothes.

Doesn't work wellI have had the sidekick washer since October and am very dissappointed with it. It sticks mid-wash and we have had water all over our laundry room floor after every wash. The fix is to get behind the washer and unplug it and that "resets" it. The problem is the tub is still full of water. I wish that it worked because I have a lot of items that I want to wash in a small load. Don't recommend the sidekick at all.
I love the mega machine itself so this is just referring to the sidekick.

SO-SOWe only used it a few times but we like it ,so far. It seems to work well. They say it can hold 5 bath towels & maybe you could stuff them in there but I don't think they'd get clean. This washer is very small. My wife uses it for panties & bras. I think it should also have Wi-Fi, especially considering the price & its "Signature" branding.

Can I stack a sidekick washer, washer and dryer altogether?
Asked by: Ronnie725
The LG SIGNATURE 1.0 cu. ft. LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer, Model # WD205CK cannot be installed under a stacked washer and dryer. That is too much weight for it to support...^AC

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.
