    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.

          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

          Answer

          Not big enough for adult sized blankets. Could maybe do a few baby blankets at one time.

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

            The SideKick is the same size as a ped. No size difference. The ped is meant to be replaced by a Sidekick.
