Great addition to the LG washer/dryer
Posted by: WAaronB from: Seattle, WA on
I wish I could have found these on sale, but overall I'm happy with them. They go great with the LG washer and dryer, it was just a little difficult getting the units up there. It's a 2 person job (2 stronger people).
The drawers are definitely handy. I have a storage cabinet where I'm used to keeping all my supplies, so I don't really have much in the new drawers, but I'm sure I'll fill them with stuff before long.
Most of all, I like how it lifts the washer and dryer up to about chest or belly high, which makes it easier when moving stuff from the washer to the dryer, no bending down or anything.
One downside to the additional height is that the drawer on the LG washer to add detergent is high enough that if you're short (my wife is 5'2", but I'm okay at 6') it may make it harder to see in there to know how much to add. If you were less than 5' high you may want to rethink the pedestal. Same with the optional water for the steam dryer feature if you have that on your LG dryer.
Otherwise, great color match, and it really makes your laundry room pop, while giving some good storage in the process.

Excellent quality but expensive
Posted by: OurFamilyInCA from: Tehachapi, CA on
We bought a pair for our new washer and dryer. We love the pedestals/drawers, but they are expensive for what you get.
Would we buy them again? Yes, but it wouldn't hurt any less!

This has great storrage and also keeps me from getting down on my knees to upload the washer and load the dryer. Love them.

Helpful; don't have to bend down to remove clothes

A great product, but a bit costly for what it is. Has good storage space and makes it a lot easier to remove clothing (don't have to bend down).

Expensive but worth it
Posted by: bambiart from: california on
I bought the LG front load washer and dryer but comtemplated for a long time if buying the pedestals were really necessary. Afterall they are very expensive when compared to the washer/dryer themselves. Most people would think that they would use them for storage of their detergents, but you should know that the liquid detergents don't fit! They are about 2 inches too high to fit standing upright. But we've found that the pedestals are better for storing dirty clothes, blankets, or other items that you might need in a hurry and within reach. So don't think that you need them for storaging only washing products! Afterall the capacity is huge and you could use it for many things, you just have to be creative. As for as the looks, it is worth every dollar paid because it makes the whole set of washer/dryer looks so good, and it makes putting and pulling the clothes in and out of them easy. This model matches the machines better than the pedestals with the handles that usually are displayed at the stores. I have no regrets spending money on them.

These are a must if you have the LG Washer/Dryer!

These pedestals are not cheap by any stretch of the imagination. If you purchase them along with the washer and dryer, you will be adding an extra $500 to the purchase total. Some people may balk at this and deem it an unnecessary expenditure. I can assure you that, like the LG washer and dryer, this will be money well-spent!
The pedestals serve several useful and important purposes. First and foremost, they raise both the washer and dryer to a comfortable level that does not require bending or stooping down. This feature alone was worth the price of admission for me!
I have a relatively small laundry room and so space is at a premium for me. The fact that these pedestals also have spacious drawers in them is just icing on the cake for me! The drawers slide out very easily and don't feel cheap or flimsy at all. They easily glide out and slide shut. The drawer is divided into two equal sections and both are quite spacious. However, it would've been really nice if the largest liquid detergent containers would've been able to fit in these. That might have made the pedestals too tall and thereby affected the optimum height of the washer. My large container of Tide will fit in the drawer, but I have to lay it down on its side. I mitigated this problem by buying smaller bottles of Tide, Downy, and All that will fit in the drawers. I refill them from my larger containers that I store in the closet.
These pedestals were, in my opinion, an essential component to the LG washer and dryer. They have augmented two fantastic machines and made them even better. The pedestals afford storage space for laundry items, which is a huge plus. They also elevate the machines to facilitate easy loading and unloading of clothes. If I had it to do all over again, I'd buy the pedestals without a second thought!

I wanted the pedestals so I wouldn't have to lean over to do laundry. They are poorly designed, they should be large enough to hold the dryer rack.

Saves Your Back
Posted by: Gilroygarlic from: Gilroy, CA on
I was a little worried about the materials from which the pedestals were made but they appear to strong and sturdy enough to support the weight of the washer and dryer. They don't vibrate or walk across the room during the spin cycles or fast tumbling of clothes. Save your back, spend the money on these stands. Adding and removing clothes is much easier with these. It also puts the control panels for the washer and dryer at eye level.

I love the extra space; hide my laundry soap, etc from view. Love that it raises the washer/dryer to eye level for me.

To get or not to get...
Posted by: KitKat from: Littleton, CO on
I bought this under drawer unit for my washer - it lifts the dryer to a good point but I feel an extra inch or two would have done wonders as the HE liquid detergent containers are too tall to fit in this drawer. The unit was pricey in my opinion but spread over the life of the washer/dryer it was a purchase I was willing me make. I love having it, seems sturdy only complaint is the lack of a few inches in height.
