LG SideKick 1.0 Cu. Ft. 6-Cycle Top-Loading Washer
I bought what I thought would be a dream washer and dryer setup but the delivery and installation was a nightmare. 8 installers came out and all 8 refused to do the install. Some unpacked than walked off citing liability issues. The last crew never even showed up. In the end, I had to install it myself. I am in love with the setup and bought a new LG Refrigerator and dishwasher but not through BestBuy. I dont think I will ever buy appliances again from them.
We have had the sidekick for about two months and we love it. It is great for those items that you forgot to put in the main wash. Great for active wear. We are cyclists and our cycle clothing all fits in the unit which requires a gentle wash. My wife loves it for her lingerie. We are extremely happy with our purchase.
We purchased this when we found out that we were having a baby. As a parent, washing baby’s clothes or burpy cloth can be an issue because it ends up in their mouth. So, we decided to get this only for the baby. It’s just a piece of mind, but I definitely feel great using it just for the baby stuff. It washes even dirty burpy clothes very well, and even thought it’s small, it’s pretty powerful!
I've been using this for hand-wash/gentle cycle items, items that will have to be hung or laid flat to dry, and items that need immediate treatment (think a bloody nose on a white blouse), and I love it for these items. I can run a full load in the LG steam washer and a few specialty items in the SideKick simultaneously. I don't have to search through all the items in the big washer to find the couple of items that can't go into the dryer. And it's great to not have to run the big washer for an item that has to be washed "right now." I washed a pair of jeans that had blood splattered on them (dog injured his ear and shook his head - yuck!). Every bit of the blood came out, and I didn't have to wash an entire load of anything in the big washer. The thing I don't like about it is that it's not wifi enabled. My new steam washer and dryer tell my iOS app when they're finished, but the SideKick does not. My husband did buy me the optional remote for my birthday, so I'll see how that works with it.
It took three tries before we got this Pedestal Washer installed. On the second round, the Sidekick arrived damaged and was returned to the store. I was not happy about not being able to get things moving on a new delivery date until the damaged item had been returned to the store and checked in that night (Friday night, so probably Monday before a new delivery would be scheduled). Thinking outside the box, I went into the store and bought another Sidekick and instructed Best Buy to simply mark the damaged one as returned. The Sidekick was installed uneventfully, but the damaged one that was returned was not accounted for as returned. So, I was billed for two Sidekicks. Reaching Best Buy by phone had repeatedly proved to be a massively frustrating experience, so I, again, went into the store to deal with the problem. After repeatedly confirming that I didn't actually have two Sidekicks at my house, the Customer Service person took care of the return. Eventually, the duplicate charge was reversed off of my Best Buy credit card. To sum up, we really like the LG appliances we bought, but when things don't go according to plan, Best Buy policies seem to make the problem worse, rather than better. All I got was repetitions of policy, rather than dealing with the problem I presented -- I didn't want the weekend to pass before our new (third) deliver date could be scheduled.
However Best Buy supplied a graphite steel pedestal washer with a black stainless steel Washer & Dryer. Response from Service Rep has been slow and he has not responded to my request to order a replacement black stainless steel pedestal washer so it matches the main Washer. Recommendation to others will depend on how Best But resolves the color issue. Otherwise all good!
I love my new LG washer and dryer set. The pedestal washer would be great, but be warned if you don't have at least an inch of clearance below it. Mine is in a closet in an apartment, and it hits on the carpet threshold when I try to open it so I can't use it right now.
A:AnswerOk, I installed my set last night. I placed the sidekick washer under the dryer (LG said it was only designed to go under washer) and it works fine. The unit has no need for the top washer, except the back left corner has a switch that senses the washer (or dryer in my case) is on top to allow it to work. If you placed a weight on there or bypassed it, I don't see any reason it would not work stand alone in dorm/camper, etc.
A:AnswerThe difference is in the width of the unit. The WD100CW is meant to be used with comparable LG washers that are 27 inches wide, while the WD200CW is to be used with comparable LG washers that are 29 inches wide
A:AnswerThe LG - SideKick 1.0 Cu. Ft. 6-Cycle High-Efficdicated iency Pedestal Washer, Model # WD100CW has its own power cord has to be plugged into its' own dedicated
standard 120V/60 Hz household outlet. A 15 Amp Time-delay fuse or circuit breaker is recommended...^IFV
A:AnswerBoth the hot and cold water supply lines are split with a y-connector to hook up the two washers . With your steam dryer there will an additional y-connector on the cold water supply line to split that supply line again. When all is done, you will have one y-connector on the hot water supply line and two y-connectors on the cold water supply line.
