    A Must Have

    I really didnt want to buy these pedestals, but if you dont, your washer and dryer will sit too low to the floor in my opinion. The difference it makes in that alone and looks is a big reason to purchase these. You do also get the added bonus of some space to put things, but the bummer is you cant fit a regular size Tide or Snuggle. You have to put them in sort of sideways to work and make really sure the lids are tight so no leaking. The drawers glide open and shut very nice. What I hated about the set is the price. One nice thing about Best Buy is that they will price match though...so if you find this set at a lesser price somewhere else, if you can prove it, you will save money. At the time of my purchase they were not less anywhere else so I had to pay full price. I was not happy about this at all, but honestly, I would have been even more unhappy without having them. I love the washer and dryer so much though that these pedestals are a must so I went ahead and bought them anyway.

    Started having problems with our old Washer/Dryer which we had since 2002. We we not even in the market for a Front Load Washer until the wife started looking at them and realized with the pedestal under the Washer/Dryer it was a lot easier getting the clothes in and out. AND you could store the Bottles of Detergent etc. in the pedestal. Everything worked out great until we tried to put the big Detergent in pedestal. It would not fit standing up. So the Detergent still ends up on top of Washer. LG should have seen this coming and I should have too. That is the only GOTCHA we have rand into. The LG Washer/Dryer working fine and saving water over previous washer.

    LG Washer-Dryer Pedestals --- a little short

    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.

    I'm a reluctant pedestal owner - think w/d manufacturers ought to make w/d that don't "require" pedestals to make the laundry accessible - having said that, these are just ok - nothing special - the 1st pedestals I owned were Maytags and they were of such superior quality and deep enough to house my detergent jug - the quality of these are very average and the depth doesn't allow my Tide jug or any taller spray bottles. Sadly, all of the manufacturers have cheapend their products so you get what you get.

    Every maker uses a slightly different cabinet

    Unfortunately these boxes have to support heavy washers and dryers, and the feet on different brands are not precisely the same, making the purchase of a branded pedestal a luxury proposition when it should be a fraction of the price. If you need the pedestals, which help a lot if bending over is difficult, then you have to pay up for them, even though they contain nothing but a box and a drawer! They all cost about the same and I am not aware of any aftermarket alternatives.

    Glimicky but good for occasionally use

    A little glimmicky. The washer is very small. As a practical matter, don't really use it. Maybe once a month. Primary use is to prop up the washing machine so washer is easier to load / unload -- which they should do to begin with. Wife occasionally uses it to wash her delicates but only occassionally. The height benefit is actually very very helpful but you can accomplish the same by buying just the empty drawer version of the pedastral.

    i got these to raise them for a bad back but they're still too short. they're also too short to hold a large containers of detergent or bleach. i'm lucky to have space for a chair to sit on while transferring clothes from washer to dryer. they're good for starch or cleansers, etc. anything small. they keep things organized for those things, but can only hold small size bottles.

    Needs a shelf

    It does what a pedestal should in that it raises the height of the machine. It comes with a removable divider to split the drawer in half. I had a different brand before that had a shelf across the pedestal so that when open I could put my laundry basket under the mouth of the washer door to unload laundry into. This pedestal doesn't have such a shelf.

    Too low for larger detergent bottles

    Larger detergent or fabric softener bottles (ex. Tide HE liquid detergent 93 fl oz/59 loads, Gain fabric softener 51 fl oz/ 60 loads) do not fit standing (have to lay bottle down) -- unlike the Whirlpool Duet pedestal which was a little higher so large detergent bottles fit standing up.

    Useful for the height

    I love the extra height the pedastal offers, however, paying extra for the opening drawer is a little pointless. I doesnt even hold a standing washing liquid bottle. I put towels in them just for the sake of it. Unless youre desperate for the storage i wiuldnt bother spending the extra money. Also the dipped in handle collects a lot dust and sand (we live by the beach)

    It Serves It's Purpose

    It really upsets me that the cost of the pedestals are ⅓ of the cost of the washer! I'm able to put my detergents, bleach and tub cleaning accessories in the storage bin. Convenience is good, however, the cost is very disappointing. Should come with the washer/dryer and be a deductible alternate, if you don't want the pedestal.

    Good for the look and storage. The drawer slides out nicely. Although i dont use the storage space. LOL >. its just more for looks and good for my back to stop the bending up and down when i get older. ( I did get it when it was buy one and get one free -- kinda expensive for just storage) I have cabinets and shelves so the under storage is not useful to me --

    Works for dryer but not as well for washer

    My house has a built in tray (to catch over flowing water) to house the washer. The pedestal fits (I measured first) but the drawer won't open due to the lip of the tray. Also, it really needs to be much easier to adjust once the washer (or dryer) has been installed for leveling. I do like how it's much easier to access front loading washer/dryers.

    A little spendy, but it works

    It does what it claims - lifts the washer so it is easier to load and unload the clothes. A real back saver, but a little spendy at $250. But every pedestal from every manufacturer seems to be the exact same price. If you don't care about looks you could just use cinder blocks to accomplish the same thing.

    The pedesatal we had with our Kenmore had several dividers you could use to configure the best use of the storage space. These only divide in half and don't seem quite as sturdy, but it has been twelve years and I am not sure the quality is the same we needed them because I have an old back injury and can't bend over that far.

    I'm happy that my back is being "saved" by these, but I feel they're overpriced, and they're not even high enough to put jugs of detergent into! Only the smallest jugs fit. Kind of frustrating... I'm putting down that I would NOT recommend them for this reason; however, if you don't want your washer/dryer way down low, you'd get them anyway.

    Handy, in that it raises the appliance to a working height but at 1/4 the cost of the washer, its a rip. Nothing but a metal box with a plastic drawer. If you have a saw, build a stand from 2 bys and plywood.

    I needed the pedestal because the washer was too low for me to unload. It has no storage function really. Since I purchased my last one 13 years ago you would have thought they would have figured out a way to store the actual laundry soap. No! It's still to short in the drawer.

    True, it does make it easier to unload your machine but it puts the top so high, you can no longer use the top as a counter. I used to fold my clothes on top of my washer but now can't. Also the price of these things is prohibitive. I probably would not buy one again.

    Won’t fully close - after having them less than a year. Read that it’s common problem, some type of Clíp normally breaks off. But unable to get a replacement part. I can’t even tell where these clips go. Also, not sure about warranty.
