    My wife wanted to get the Sidekick and I was like, that's a lot of money. To be honest it was a great purchase. Rather than running the big machine on small loads it can be done with the Sidekick saving water and energy. Extremely quite. No regrets with the purchase.

    I purchased an all in one washer/dryer. I love it! the wash is very silent and cleans very well. I used the dryer option and the clothes came out a little damp. But, this is okay because I was able to iron the pants dry as well as the blouse. I am still learning the machine and may need to set the dryer for more time. Nonetheless, I love my purchase!

    I like the little washer and the job it does . It is great for small jobs such as swim suits or spots jerseys. It is also great for delicates such as bras or compression stockings. I like that I can use it at the same time as the large washer. The only thing I would change is to give it a hot wash cycle option.

    This had caught our eye from the time we saw this for the first time. This is an amazing buy for us. We can wash all smaller clothes or our new born baby clothes in this one without mixing it with the regular cycle. It is just the size of a pedestal and does wonders. This was the best part about getting the LG washer dryer

    There are a lot of great features to this sidekick, but the thing I love most is how it handles our delicates and hand-washables! With a washer stacked on top, I can take care of our whole family's laundry needs, including hand-washables, delicates, towels, and bedding, in a single afternoon. I don't know what we did before this sidekick!

    This small and very efficient washing machine has made doing laundry so much easier than ever. I can wash my sportswear separately and at the same time as a regular load of laundry is being done. It’s perfetc for my delicates and my hand wash items as well. Also great for a small load of regular clothes as well. I just love it!

    Open everything! I didn't find the connection kit until after several trips to the hardware store and many bad wishes to Samsung because of the difficulty in finding a way to hook up 2 washers to 1 hot and cold faucet. But the corrrct connections were there in the washer the whole time. *eye rolling* It's great for those small loads!

    Beware, can't be used in an upstairs laundry room

    Since you need a washer pan in an upstairs laundry room, this can't be used without being creative. Wish best buy told us prior to the purchase. Didn't know or think to check since they sold it to us when we told them it'll be going to our upstairs laundry room in our new construction home. I'll take some of the blame too....

    We had a bunch of reward points to redeem and did need another tv so we looked this washer with a matching a pedestal. We like the handiness of running a small load or an additional separate load while running the main washer. Not as many washing options but does a good job. Typical wash time is 39 minutes for standard cycle.

    This is a great item as I can do two loads at the same time. I can be running whites in the large washer while I do some delicates in this washer. My only complaint is the slow spin speed in the delicate cycle. I would like to be able to choose a faster spin speed.

    Ok so this little thing isnt going to do a full load but its GREAT for smaller loads!! I can two loads at a time and this cut my laundry time by several hours....whats not to love. And instead of wasted storage space for the plain pedestal I can be washing something simultaneously with a big load....love...love.....love it!!!

    Bought this washer instead of another pedestal. They were the same price at the time. I love it for small loads. I don't have time to stay near the washer when it is time to put in the fabric softener. That's the only characteristic I don't like. It cleans very well. You must not stuff it. Nice to wash two loads at one time.

    Great, but needs WiFi connectivity.

    This thing is awesome. Speeds up washing. So cool to do smaller loads with the main washer doing the bigger loads. But, it needs WiFi connectivity. My main washer & dryer have that and it spoils you. Wish the sidekick also had WiFi.

    I think my little LG Sidekick is great except for 1 thing... you can't add fabric softener to it, at least not that I've found. I DO find it ideal for being able to wash 1 large load in my LG washer and a smaller load in my cute little Sidekick! Double your productivity!! It's really great!

    I bought the pedastal initially, and then returned it when I realized that I didn’t need to pay the extra money for something that I didn’t need. It took look like it was well made though and would be useful for someone who doesn’t want to bend down.

    I purchased this because the rebates were the same as the pedestal and gave it a try. I will say it does wash good and it’s quiet. It is small and so that being g said unless your doing small loads often , I would say it really is t necessary, I am a family of two so, yeah it works for me.

    After reading reviews, I decided to purchase the Sidekick. And I'm SO GLAD that I did! It really is perfect for small loads, or specialty items. With just the two of us in the house, we frequently have a small load of exercise clothes, specialty skiwear, etc. It does a great job on those and is still gentle on the items.

    We purchased this washer so we could wash delicate items, hand wash only items and our kids sports uniforms separately. With this washer we don't have to use the full size washer for one or two clothing items. This is a great addition for families with active children and wardrobes that require special handling.

    My husband scoffed at me because I wanted this. He thought it was silly. I USE IT ALL THE TIME! I LOVE IT! If you're thinking about it, do it! Put the dryer on the pedestal for storage and get the sidekick, you won't regret it. So handy to be able to was 2 loads at the same time!

    We love having the ability to do a small load when needed or have 2 loads going at the same time. It does actually have warm and cold (had read that it only washed on cold). Seems to do a good job with sweat on athletic and golf wear. Haven't really tested its ability to handle stained/very dirty gear.
