    Power on problems

    Power issues -- will not power on. Actually pretty common as it turns out -- google or youtube. There's a fix but only temporary. Fix is (1) unplug, (2) hold power button 5 secs, (3) hold play/pause button 5 secs, (4) plug back in. Problem will return. A absolute piece of junk. Will never buy an LG product (appliances, TV, mobile phone) ever again. How can they charge so much money if they can't even get the basics right like ability to turn on the appliance

    Very useful for small laundry

    There are many cases, such as kids poured milk or juice over their clothes, or dirty dirt on their jacket or shirts after activity. Then this is quite useful for small laundry. It does not have many wash mode, but normal mode is quite OK. My wife loves it. Only issue is that it is quite expensive. But you could find $100 off or other deal when you buy this with the regular washer/dryer as a package.

    Doesn't Disappoint

    My wife wanted a washer with hand wash, but the additional cost for a washer with that feature simply didn't make sense. We decided to buy an inexpensive washer and also this Sidekick because of its hand wash feature as well as the ability to wash two loads simultaneously. We couldn't be happier with its performance. The clothes come out smelling and looking great. What used to take my wife half a day is now only a matter of several hours. It does not disappoint.

    Bought the LG washer with pedestal washer. The machines look good and function without any issues. The machine is very quite and have high quality. The installer all the packing material and keep the laundry room clean. However, the machine was not leveled that caused the machine vibrating when spinning. They also took away a tiny detergent measuring device for the pedestal washer. Called the sales representative who promised to send me one but I never received the device.

    LG appliances are the best

    LG appliances are the best. Highest quality and best value. Easy to use and many functions. Fits under your dryer or washer, just like a pedestal. Only washes small loads or delicates. I use it for my dress shirts and wife uses it for her unmentionables. Does raise the height of the mashing so make sure your ok with that.

    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.

    I love the fact that I can wash a normal/big load in my front loader and the things I forgot in this mini-washer! When washing I forget things all the time, and they tend to be small things like socks or underwear that I misplaced or dropped along the way to the laundry room. This pedestal washer was made just for that (in my case). Its great, quick and efficient. I purchased while on sale and was been a great decision.

    Good, but not necessary

    This works well, but I am not using it as much as I thought I would. It is great for delicates so I end up using it for that. The regular washer is so great and only uses the minimum amount of water needed so I don't find it necessary to do small loads in the sideKick, I just use the regular washer. So, I don't think it's completely necessary to get the sidekick, but it is nice for delicate items.

    Perfect for smaller loads!

    So grateful to have this second machine for an urgent item or a smaller load. Also great for the sweater that needs "hand washing" in its own separate load. Have often had both machines running at once which is fabulous! Would give it a 5 except that there does not seem to be any way to turn off all the chimes and signals and I would rather not hear them.

    I purchased my appliances during a sale for appliance bundles. I decided to add the SideKick to the washer instead of the regular pedestal with the drawer. I am so glad I did and highly recommend it. It allows me to separate small loads of specialty items and do two loads at the same time. I love it for my delicate items and other handwash. It is also great for high frequency items that require daily washing.

    We purchased this because a single member of our family would use it a lot for washing her work uniform. I was surprised when everyone else found uses for it too! It's a perfect size for intimates or if you have just a couple things that need washed. When this item goes on sale, it is definitely worth it, though I am not certain I would pay full-price - even though it is very useful.

    We needed a new washer and dryer. I noticed that the had this pedestal washer and decided to buy it as well. I am so glad that I did!!! It cuts my laundry time in half!! A lot of my partners shirts need to be on the delicate cycle or hand washed so this saves a lot of time! I can wash her shirts as well as wash a load of clothes at the same time. I am so happy that I decided to buy this! Definitely worth it!

    Love the extra washer that can sit below the main unit. It's similar to the double oven in the kitchen. No more having to wait to wash out a shirt because someone else is washing something on sanitary setting and it still has over an hour to go. This little washer gets clothes clean and is a real convenience. Would highly recommend spending the few extra dollars to add this. Love it.

    My husband works out at the gym daily and needs to wash his clothes immediately ... this was the perfect solution for constantly running the washer with only a couple things in it. I also love using this for the nice stuff that I want to keep separate from my other clothes. I can run both the washer and this at the same time!

    Man I used to hate washing small loads because I felt like it was a waste of water, but I didn't want to leave dirty laundry when it's laundry day. This machine does the job when you have a small load of socks, under garments, or an outfit for the night. It has to be items that are ideal for its size. You have to be considerate for the life of the machine. This is like a must have. Seriously.

    I loves everything about the little unit with one exception; you cant use bleach. I planned on using it the other day to wash white socks but read the instructions and bleach is prohibited. Other than that, we really like it. It alos has decent capacity for a separate washer.

    This unit is a dream come true for making laundry more flexible. In a busy family, there are times when a small washer is a great asset to throw in delicates or work shirts when the larger washer is busy. I like it for washing delicate work clothes that are then hung to dry. Also acts as a pedestal under the primary washer to give it height. Love it.

    I wasn’t sure about paying extra for another washer since I had bought the new LG front load washer. I’m so glad I got the sidekick!! This way if I have a small load but may not need softener, I can wash the small load at the same time and then put the small load in the dryer with the regular load from the big washer. I’m truly thrilled with this purchase!

    I debated on whether to purchase this or not because I wasn’t sure it would be used enough to warrant it. SO glad I did. I use it at least once a week. It’s great for intimates and also a quick small wash when you’ve forgotten to wash socks! Yay me! Works great and clothes come out clean.

    Great for baby clothes, small loads or dogs towels. We use this a lot with our whites clothes compare to the Main washer due to the fact that when we do Landry we barely have enough to do a big load... saves a lot on water and electricity bill. Plus in case you can do two loads at once... saves a lot of time. Great product... wish they have one for the dryer pedestal as well.
