    Well Made But You Cannot Store Standard Wash Items

    The primary purpose of the stand is to raise the front loading washing machine off the floor so that you do not need to stoop to load/unload clothes from it. It does this well. However, the other reason you purchase it is for storage. The irony is that the maximum storage height inside the slide out drawer is 10.5 inches. All standard bottle wash detergents (e.g. Tide bottles) are 11.5 inches. Thus, you cannot store any of these items standing up (the only way you would want to) in the drawer. This really limits its usefulness. All LG needed to do was raise the overall height of the stand by 1 inch and it would have been totally functional and really usable. So, basically you pay around $150 for a stand so you do not have to bend over as much when loading your clothes. Not a very good design.

    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!

    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.

    Both necessary and ridiculous

    I'm actually quite surprised this product is rated so highly. This pedestal is definitely necessary, makes it a lot easier on your back, and makes the set look nice. It's ridiculous though because of the cost. $280 for this is really, really excessive. The pedestal washer (which we also got) is $450. When comparing the two, it doesn't make any sense as to how an empty metal box is that expensive (yes, it has a drawer, but still).

    Height challenged

    While these look nice and are made well, they do not accommodate many detergent bottles and other laundry products. I can't put a standard bottle of stain remover, oxygen detergent or a small bleach bottle in these because they do not fit standing up. I have to either lay them flat or find somewhere else to store them. When reviewing the height of pedestals for other brands like maytag and Samsung, these seem to be the shorter ones.

    Too Shallow for Detergent Bottles

    Very disappointed with these pedestals! My previous Kenmore's were 15" tall and most other brand pedestals are 15" tall so I did not double check height on these LG pedestals. LG are only 13" tall!!! My detergent is too tall for the drawer to close - and I do not buy giant size detergent. Now I have 2 drawers that will not hold my laundry supplies. NOT WORTH THE MONEY.

    Order online and pick up pedestal at Folsom Best Buy. Box look normal but there was a slight dent on the front of the pedestal. I should have check it at the store but its a hassle. It will be more of a inconvenience to return and get a new one.. Other than that, pedestal is a must .

    Honestly, I only purchased this because it was on sale and so that our W&D would be even height (we also purchased the sidekick washer as it was also on sale}. It would be nice if it would fit our laundry detergent bottels in there but it's too small for the larger bottles.

    It's just a pedestal, but it's a really expensive one. I guess they need to make sure it's strong enough to support the weight of the washer & dryer, but, wow, is this thing expensive for something that has little function.

    Not deep enough to store detergent.

    Not excited about the Pedestal's for the washer/ dryer. I like the width but the depth was not sufficient for liquids and you can only put 18lbs in each and I guess you can use it for paper goods. Anybody have any ideas? I recommend because you need them.

    This pedestal is not as sturdy as my whirlpool. More plastic than metal. The rollers for the drawer are not as smooth and seems flimsy. Holds washer which is very quiet even on spin cycle. Drawer could also be a little deeper.

    It's a good pedestal and it would be great, except that it came damaged with a huge dent in the front. The service tech installed it anyway and said that another one would be ordered, delivered and set up for me.

    I love the price of the pedestals but they aren't tall enough to fit a standard size detergent, bleach or fabric softner. My old set had no problems no never thought the pedestals would not fit detergents

    Leveling bolt is already stripped, seems to be of high quality. Manufacturers take advantage of the desire for pedestals.
