For Small Loads that Can’t Wait

Whether it’s your kids’ favorite shirt, yoga pants or a school uniform, washing a full load seems wasteful for just a few pieces. Now you can wash small loads that just can’t wait with the LG SideKick™ Pedestal Washer or wash two loads at once to save time.

What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stinky washer We are miserably unhappy with our front load LG washer. It stinks. We've followed all instructions, clean it with every use and it stinks. We live in a very dry climate, so there is no mold or mildew. It just stinks. Tried the washer cleaner tabs, bleach, baking soda, vinegar... Can't afford to replace it anytime soon, so a bad review is my only recourse. If this saves one person from having to smell this horrible odor, I'll breathe easier. Not really, because the washer stinks up the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is extremely more than expected We both like the choices of each cycle and its option of a speed wash. Its choices of spin cycles for the different types and sizes of clothes or loads. We have had to use it while our place was being re plumbed and water heater being replaced all the hot water pipes andwith just cold water it handle any clothes we threw in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete Package This machine does everything you can ask of a Washing Machine. My first wash was completely clean and almost dry after the spin. Easy to use, and very customer oriented, LG for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very quiet washer. This is a very quiet washer. It does not use a lot of water cleans clothes evenly. Because it is front loaded, I must remember to wipe rubber gasket around the door and keep the door open after each use to avoid moisture build up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Many features, most of which I probably won't use. Installed 2 weeks ago. Works well, quieter than last machine. Cycle runs 25% longer time to do a load in cold wash. But does a good job. Got at good price at the 'blue store', discontinued model for them. It had majority of good reviews 80%+.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cleans well, less fussy, funny smell? This seems to be a better designed product than my previous washing machine. The grit filter can be cleaned without having to remove the front kick plate. The direct drive agitator motor is set an a slight angle that prevents clothes from becoming stuck in the door seal. It seems quieter than my old washer, and it is more difficult to get an "unbalanced load" error than my old washer. - Only one thing that bothers me; there is a smell of overheated electronics parts that comes from inside the door. Doesn't happen every time, but some loads have the "I'm an electronic component and I'm about to catch fire" smell.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It has a smell Bought this brand new. First wash there was a bad smell coming from the washer rubber seal. Don't know if this will go away over time or if the rubber seal have a coating from the factory. Either way, the smell is bad.
