I'm planning to purchase the WM5000HVA washer (w/pedestal). The unit will be installed on the second story. I'm considering purchasing a drip tray since my last washer leaked (not an LG). Would you recommend this? If yes, what dimensions?

Asked by: Forrestzbt
The W x H x D dimensions for the LG 4.5 cu. ft. Large Smart wi-fi Enabled Front Load Washer w TurboWash®, Model # WM5000HVA are 27" x 38 13/16" x 32 13/16" (54" D with door open). The washer must be plugged into its own individual dedicated grounded electrical outlet rated at 120 VAC, 60 Hz, and it should be installed on a solid floor that is strong and rigid enough to support the weight of the washing machine, even when fully loaded, without flexing or bouncing. If the floor has too much flex, you may need to reinforce it to make it more rigid. If the floor is not solid, it may cause severe vibration and noise...^IFV
