    Expensive but necessary

    Lg should lower the price on what amounts to storage boxes to lift your dryer and washer to ideal height. Very expensive for what it does but still a necessary item when considering front loaders. Absurd that detergent bottles do not fit standing up. They have to be tilted. Not a deal breaker but nevertheless annoying. Decided to switch to pods. What is another 1” tall? Come on lg listen to the thousands of complaints about the height! We all can’t be wrong. Or detergent manufacturers need to adapt their scale to the pedestal model.

    What can really be said about a dryer pedestal? Yes, it does what it's supposed to (hold up dryer to a more convenient height), but that's about it. There's a slide out drawer with a divider that currently holds the owner's manual and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The crux of the matter is this: If you don't want your dryer sitting on the floor, you can either build something yourself or (over)pay >$250 for this glorified metal box. If you don't have time to build something, you'll just have to get comfortable with getting gouged. Thanks LG!

    neccessary product for storage and height

    These pedestals are a necessity with a front load washer and dryer to set them at an easy to use height. Anyone at least 5' 3" or taller would be well advised to buy them with the corresponding front loaders to save their backs. they work great under the LG 4.0 matching washer / dryer set that I have. It also gives you a lot of available storage space. They are the same circumference as the washer and dryer at around 13 inches high. If in the Stockton, Ca. vicinity see sales associate Zach and his floor manager Alex. They gave me a package deal on a full set and helped me to establish interest free credit through the store making my purchase possible. great products sold by even greater people.

    LG Pedestals Primarily for Elevating Appliances

    While the promotional literature from LG talks about al the storage capacity, there actually isn't all that much room inside due to the weight supporting structure and the drawer mechanisms. Also using these pretty much precludes the use of a drip pan under the washer, because water is going to go everywhere once it hits the pedestal. The primary benefit is simply to elevate the front-loading appliances for easier usage without stooping over to handle the laundry. An assortment of milk crates held together with zip ties would work just as well, be more colorful, and a whole lot cheaper!

    Love my LG dryer

    I bought the LG dryer along with the LG washing machine and couldn't be happier. This dryer has a lot of great features that my precious dryer lacked. The delicates setting dries my clothes very gently thus eliminating the tedious hang drying. However, when I have no other choice but to hang the garments, I also have the option of setting the dryer to alert me when the clothes are 80% dry. The wrinkle free option is also great as it will toss the load at interval times in case you can't take it out right away. Haven't tried the steam option yet but I'm sure that it'll work extremely well as this machine is truly great!

    Pedestals are a must for front load washer/dryer

    In my previous home I had all KitchenAid appliances. In moving to FL and buying a new build home, the builder's grade appliances did not cut it with me. Within one year I purchased an LG front load washer and dryer plus pedestals. Could not get KitchenAid so LG was the next best. These pedestals make it so much better to load and unload. The drawer allows for some additional storage in my laundry room. Thank you Pacific Kitchens and Best Buy.

    I did my research before purchasing, however due to my laundry room design the front loading washer did not work since the door opens to the left and my washer needs to be on the right. Despite the design limitations I was not happy to learn that despite the steps needs to clean the gasket there is a drain on the bottom of the machine that needs to be emptied after use. This drain was a few inches from the floor and drained close to 3 cups of water. Therefore, the design and look of the washer is greater, there is some upkeep required to prevent the mold from getting into your clothes.

    We saved our pennies for a nice front W/D pair, and certainly chose our savings based on purchasing the pedestals too. Obviously there is a huge profit in the sale of these pedestals, but frankly the value is there for my family, seeing as how the daily loading and unloading of the W/D pair is much more comfortable using these pedestals. Sure they cost more, but do yourself a favor and don't spend the money for a nice front load washer dryer set unless you buy the pedestals too! They are great for storing laundry things we don't need often, but the best job they do is bring the laundry up to a comfortable height.

    I love having a pedestal as it makes loading and unloading the washer so comfortable also love the extra storage it provides. I previously had an LG washer and pedestal and to my disappointment when I bought my new LG washer I was not able to use that pedestal, I had to buy a new one as they would not install the new machine on the old pedestal. So the new pedestal is just fine, almost exactly like my previous one that was in excellent condition and on its way to a recycling center.

    The product is good, but i had nothing but problems with bestbuy installers. First they brought the wrong size and the second time they brought the rightone and dropped it off on the floor and said, we cannot install this, and walkedaway, they asked me to go n complain to best buy, so someone else would come n install it under the washing mechine, which i ordered both at the same time. So i gave up on best buy and hired my own handyman to install it, cost me extra $150. Please get it right with the installers and untill now, no one ever followed up even after complaining.

    Wanted a pedestal for the dryer

    I'm short but still wanted the pedestal to raise the dryer so I didn't have to bend to unload the dryer. I like the idea of the extra storage beneath the dryer for dryer sheets and the extra stuff that always seems to clutter up the laundry area. Since the laundry is in the basement on the same side as the sump, I like the dryer being raised higher off the floor in case the sump ever backs up. It hasn't happened, but it's a bit of a concern. I like the look of the dryer being raised and not dragging clothes on the floor as I'm removing them from the dryer to hang or fold them.

    The best part of our new washer and dryer

    These are a must have if you have the height to accommodate them. They will save your back in the long run. The pedestals lift the washer and dryer to the perfect height to where you are not having to hunch over to move clothes. Color match is perfect. There is no added vibration or noise because of the pedestals. And the machines are secured onto the pedestals so sliding of the machines will not happen. The drawers have adequate room. They easily hold our detergent pods, dryer sheet, stain remover spray, etc. I will never buy a washer and dryer without pedestals again.

    I bought this pedestal for my new front load washer because I did not want to deal with constant bending over to load or unload clothes. The pedestal is a great buy! Thanks to it, doing laundry is easy on my back. And the fact that I am a short girl is my advantage too! Currently my pedestal is half way filled with laundry items, and I love the fact that all the soaps, dryer sheets, softeners and what not are concealed! Anyway, I absolutely recommend purchasing the pedestal for your new washer, it is so much more convenient with it!!!

    LG Washer-Dryer Pedestals --- a little short

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    The pedestals work fine on the Washer & Dryer, but they are too short. The containers of soap and fabric softener products that we purchased are too tall to fit in the drawer. The drawer would not close. The purpose of these pedestals are to house such products so you do not have to have them on top of the Washer-Dryer. We went back to store to purchase different laundry products, maybe with shorter containers. Nope! They are all the same size. The pedestals were a real bummer for me. So you are warned about the LG pedestals.

    The pedestals are a nice thing to have, especially if you're getting older and lazier. Nice to be able to transfer the laundry without having to awkwardly bend over / sideways. Two complaints: one, the price seems a bit high for a metal box. And two, they recommend that you put something heavy in them, to help the system become less top-heavy, but the only things I would put in there are the detergent and bleach and OxyClean bottles, and the pedestal drawers aren't tall enough to fit them in there without tipping them on their side (not doing that, thank you very much).

    It doesn't hold much for load size nor will it clean heavily soiled items. Also, it cannot be used with small bleach loads. Adding soap and fabric softener is also a manual task with no dedicated places to pour them in. Otherwise, I use it once or twice a week for a small load or delicates to help speed up overall laundry process. I envisioned running small bleach loads like socks and such, but it still comes in handy otherwise. It's pretty quiet when running.

    Pedestal not tall enough

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    The washer and dryer are great but the pedestals are not tall enough to hold a bottle of detergent, a gallon of bleach or a bottle of shout. You would have to lay them on their side in order to fit. All pedestals need to be at least 15-16 inches tall. Then all bottles of laundry soaps would fit. Make them taller LG, your washer and dryers are great products.

    Pedestal essential for front loader washer !

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I really needed the pedestal for the front loading washer, but I wish I didn't. The storage is not so great, in that most of the detergent bottles and/or boxes are taller than the drawer and its not feasible to lay them down. AND, if I had to turn off the water for any reason, I'd have to run get a stool and climb up on the dryer and reach behind the washer !! It being top heavy causes more than just a little vibration but it is not any worse than the top loader I replaced.

    Saves Your Back

    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.

    Washing Machines today aren't like the days of old. All I researched are so low to the ground (and NO LIGHT!) that I found it necessary to purchase this pedestal. Frustrated that this was even necessary to keep from back-breaking laundry, but review is on actual pedestal and not manufacturer's add-on to make more money - and for the quality of the pedestal, I give it 4 stars. It is sturdy and bonus is it has storage (although not tall enough for laundry soap, bleach, or softener containers - which is why it got a 4).
