      So far loving it

      We purchased this as part of a complete set washer, dryer, storage pedestal and this sidekick after our previous machine (GE) died at only 3 years old and repair parts were back ordered for at least 3 weeks so we did not spend a lot of time researching like we usually would for this type of purchase and so far we do not regret it at all. I love that I can toss a small load in while still getting the rest of the laundry done in the larger machine. Pros 1. Small loads have their own machine now so laundry is done in half the time and no more waiting to build up enough laundry for a large load 2. The settings choices are perfect for the types of loads I run in it so far 3. Loads run through within 47 minutes some settings are faster 4. Fabric softener reminder chime 5. Nice loud chime when cycle is done Cons 1. Limited settings, which has worked for us so far but who knows in the future. It would be nice to be able to adjust water temperature. 2. Buttons are low so little fingers are constantly turning machine on, thankfully you can lock the rest of the panel just not the power button 3. No fabric softener dispenser or detergent dispenser you need to manually add the fabric softener when the machine chimes about 13 minutes before the end of the cycle and be aware of where you add detergent so you don’t wind up with extra soapy clothes. 4. Took about 4 empty cycles to get a very strong chemical/oil smell out of machine before I could actually use it to wash clothes. 5. Low to the ground so it is a bit of bending and digging to get washed clothes out especially little items like baby socks Overall we would purchase again and find it was worth the money for us and our life styles. The two things I would change about it if I could would be detergent and fabric softener dispensers in the machine and the ability to adjust water temperature.

      Happy with Product, Best Buy Policies Not So Much

      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.

      A must have!!

      This is an absolute must have for anyone with kids, pets, or just about anyone! When i first looked at the sidekick i said I would never spend the extra money to have it. Then i decided to look at how much money a plain storage pedestal would be. During the memorial day sale, it was only $100 more for the sidekick! It was a no brainier. So make sure you keep an eye out for a sale because thats the time to purchase! Install:The install was quick and easy with detailed directions. You will use the existing water lines and just use the included water splitter to split water lines into two. This only took about 15 minutes to install. Operation: The operation of the sidekick is very easy. It only has a couple buttons with the most common settings. I have washed towels and clothes in this with positive results. The run time is about 35 minutes however uses a lot less water then the standard washing machine. You can't even tell the machine is running when its on. Im very satisfied with this purchase

      Not as cool as I expected

      Posted

      Wanted his to be awesome, but not so much. -Super limited space even for what you would expect. Seriously small. Maybe one pair of jeans, and that's cutting it close. -Doesn't clean that well. - Have to put soap directly on clothes. I don't want to do that on my delicates. - Have to put precisely the right amount of soap or won't rinse out, leaving soap spots. - have to wait for beeping mid-cycle to manually pour softener in. Again, goes directly on your clothes. -if you miss the beeping for softener, you don't get softener in your load. Wish I could put the softener in a compartment and have it automatically add it. -cycles are pretty long -Tub gets very stinky. - Side note- the first one was defective and had to be replaced with super bad delivery process. And I mean bad...a month bad. It is cool for washing bras at the same time as other clothes are going. That alone is pretty cool. I borderline recommend this product if you're not that price sensitive. I bet a 2nd generation product will be better.

      Wish I had bought this when I had younger kids

      I like being able to wash a couple of delicates while I’m doing the rest of the laundry. The only drawback is that sometimes I forget to put the fabric softener in and the delicates that I usually wash are meant to be air dried so I have to toss the delicates in dryer with dryer sheet for a few minutes. Extra step. The fabric softener issue (having to add the softener in the middle of the load) is the reason for 4 instead 5 stars. Another thing to consider is that the shortest cycle is 40 minutes. Hasn’t been a problem for me as I run two short washes in the big washer anyway so that takes more than 40 minutes. All in all, has been good this summer as the kids are home from college and there is extra laundry

      What a great idea LG!

      I've had this small washer for about 3 weeks now and I love it. Fits right under my new front load LG washer and has its own water hoses so I can wash loads separately. Great for all small loads, but I love it for washing my hand washable, workout gear and lingerie. It has a regular setting for small loads of normal laundry, too. Detergent is added right to the clothing at the start of the cycle and then the machine will alert you before the last spin cycle if you wish to add fabric softener. Interactive display and countdown timer on display. Same cute song plays at the end of the wash to let me know when it's all done. LG thanks so much for this wonderful addition to my washer that makes it so much easier and faster to wash my smaller/delicate loads. I have and will continue to recommend to others.

      1) As front loaders do not let u add a garment easily during a cycle. And if u really need something washed..urgently right after, this washer is good. 2) Kitchen towels, kids chlorinated swim clothes....Small loads that you don’t want to mix in your regular washer load (or)loads that get stinky if not washed right away..can be washed easily in this. 3) descent capacity, be careful not to overfill. 4) The front loader is energy efficient... not so much the pedestal washer though 5) child lock control is nice for moms 6) use the little detergent cup to prevent excessive suds. 7) I like to leave it open to dry, but that means pulling it out all the way, then raising the lid.. can be space occupying for tiny laundry spaces

      Love Product but Installation a nightmare

      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.
