For Small Loads that Can’t Wait

6 Customer Care Cycles

LG SideKick™ offers six distinct wash cycles, including a special setting for active wear.

Simultaneous or Independent Operation

LG SideKick™ saves time by washing two loads at once or get it all done by washing a small load separately.

Raises Your Washer

LG SideKick™ allows you to easily access laundry for more comfortable loading and unloading in the main washer. Compatible with all new LG Front Load Washers.

What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Regretful-My laundry doesn't feel or smell clean This washer does NOT get my laundry clean. My clothes do not feel clean and do not smell clean. It's so bad that sometimes when I'm wearing a freshly washed shirt or pants I can smell the odors. A service technician came out and told me this unit doesn't use much water and I need to put less in at a time. Well that still did not help. I want to change out for a different model maybe one with an agitator that would actually clean my laundry. Even to cuddle on the couch with a freshly washed blanket isn't pleasant. They keep giving me the run around. Horrible

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a happy customer My washer is only 5 months old. It all of a sudden has a burning electrical smell. Can't figure it out. Help!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Loud Noise / Harsh Vibration I have the same exact loud noise coming from my washing machine as another user, Brian, has mentioned. The washer is only a few months old, and has had this issue from the beginning, although it seems to be getting louder and more dangerous as the months go by. Unfortunately, I cannot add a video directly to this review without uploading it to Youtube (will upload at a later time). One reviewer (Brian) has posted a video, and the issue I am describing is the same as the issue starting at 55 seconds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpAzn5DDadg&feature=youtu.be My previous LG washer malfunctioned after ten years, with the door opening numerous times during the cycle, causing a lot of flooding and water damage to our basement. Will never buy another LG product again.

Can this model washer be connected by wifi to the SmartThinQ app? Or is that a different model. The instruction booklet indicates that the logo with the phone and + would indicate that it could be.

Asked by: ErinK88
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity TurboWash® Washer with Steam Technology, Model # WM8100HVA is not a Wi-Fi enabled washer nor does it have the NFX Tag On feature. The icon that you are referring to as the "logo with the phone and +" is the SmartDiagnosis™ icon which means that you can speak directly to our trained specialists. The specialist will record the data transmitted from your appliance to analyze any issues with the washer to provide you with a fast and effective diagnosis. You will be instructed to place the mouthpiece on your phone close to the SmartDiagnosis™ icon...^IFV

Mega Capacity TurboWash® Washer with Steam Technology, Model # WM8100HVA that you should fill it up to 3/4 and pack the clothing loosely. The clothing items need to have room to tumble freely...^IFV

Drip pan? Does anyone know a specific drip pan that will fit under this washer?

Asked by: Miownz28
The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.2 cu. ft. Mega Capacity TurboWash® Washer with Steam Technology, Model # WM8100HVA does not have enough clearance to fit a drip pan under the unit so you will need to look for drip pan that the entire washer can sit in.

Asked by: Masonnyc1
The Energy Star Qualified LG 4.5 cu.ft. Smart wi-fi Enabled Front Load Washer with TurboWash™ 360 Technology, Model # WM3900HBA was just released so you will not find much on it with regards to its performance since there aren't many reviews on it yet.

The WM3900HBA being a recent release features SmartDiagnosis™ (v3.0) versus SmartDiagnosis™ (v1.0) for the WM8100HVA and it also features Cycle Monitoring and Notification, Energy Monitoring and Wi-Fi. It also features TurboWash™ 360 Technology and an updated version of TurboWash, (TurboWash® 2.0 Technology) and has a lower IWF (Integrated Water Factor) of 2.9 versus 3.2 for the WM8100HVA.
