  • Question
    I looked at this unit, it has separate power control's, independent from the top load washer. It's water supply line fitting's are standard and it has an external gray water disposal port. Why couldn't it be used independently in a dorm or camper setting?   (2 Answers)

      Answer

      Ok, 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.

      Does the Sidekick fill will water and drain separately from the front load washer? I am trying to understand why does it come with hoses and drain hoses. Would you need separate hot and cold water valves to operate the sidekick?   (4 Answers)

        Answer

        Yes, the hoses have a Y connector that splits the main washer connection into two and one goes to the sidekick.

        What is the difference between WD100CW and WD200CW. I noticed they have the same functions listed on the description but also noticed the 200 is more expensive.   (2 Answers)

          Answer

          The 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

          There's a switch that needs to be blocked. And it will work.

        How much laundry can the SideKick do in a load? Is it a small but full load (several articles of clothing), or does it only handle 1-2 pieces?   (1 Answer)

        Answers
        • Answer

          The LG - SideKick 1.0 Cu. Ft. 6-Cycle High-Efficiency Pedestal Washer, Model # WD100CV fits the equivalent of 3-4 lbs. or a hand-held basket of laundry. For a 3-pound load of delicates, that equates to 15 panties, 9 bras, 5 camisoles, 4 slips and 1 pajama bottom, or you can wash 5 to 6 shirts in a 4-pound load...^IFV

        How much clearance is there between the bottom of the drawer (that rolls out) and the ground? Do you think a drip pan would fit underneath it and still allow it to open fully? Or would it have to be raised up slightly?   (3 Answers)

          This is no room, it is tight and nothing can be put under the pedestal or the drawer

        • Question
          There has to be a drip pan under the LG washer (can't easily be removed). Can the Sidekick instead be placed under the dryer? (Apparently LG does not recommend this). Will the dimensions of the dryer and Sidekick match exactly?   (0 Answers)
