    Great addition to the LG washer/dryer

    I wish I could have found these on sale, but overall I'm happy with them. They go great with the LG washer and dryer, it was just a little difficult getting the units up there. It's a 2 person job (2 stronger people). The drawers are definitely handy. I have a storage cabinet where I'm used to keeping all my supplies, so I don't really have much in the new drawers, but I'm sure I'll fill them with stuff before long. Most of all, I like how it lifts the washer and dryer up to about chest or belly high, which makes it easier when moving stuff from the washer to the dryer, no bending down or anything. One downside to the additional height is that the drawer on the LG washer to add detergent is high enough that if you're short (my wife is 5'2", but I'm okay at 6') it may make it harder to see in there to know how much to add. If you were less than 5' high you may want to rethink the pedestal. Same with the optional water for the steam dryer feature if you have that on your LG dryer. Otherwise, great color match, and it really makes your laundry room pop, while giving some good storage in the process.

    Drawer Unremovable, Poorly Packed

    This LG pedestal for front loading washers and dryers matches the LG stainless steel finished appliances and provides storage space for laundry supplies or dirty clothes. The shipping container is pretty minimal - thin cardboard with four small Styrofoam supports at the corners. During normal handling hauling the boxes into my garage, one of them split open on the side and spilled the unit out onto the concrete floor. The whole works weighs 60 pounds, which is in excess of the 50 pounds maximum to check as passenger baggage on the airlines (as I have to do to get it to our vacation house.) Therefore I needed to remove the inside drawer to pack separately to get the weight down. Guess what - the drawer can't be removed without unscrewing and disassembling the insides of the pedestal (details on YouTube), so now I'm stuck working on Plan B to airlift two of these to their destination. This is turning into way more of a project than I intended. Good luck!

    I'm not saying it's haunted...

    The base unit seems to be a profit margin buffer prior to the sale being concluded. I'm not saying it isn't helpful but that's because I am taller than a hobbit and not quite as hairy. But they do have cool rings. Hobbits, not washer stands. That said, the stand has a storage drawer that could be handy. Unless you forget things. Like a tuna sandwich. I highly recommend NOT leaving a tuna sandwich in the bottom stand drawer. That said, we haven't had the stand long enough to know if it is haunted. I don't think the nice people at Lucky Goldstar would send possessed stands to sell through Best Buy. Although based on what we see on t.v. lately regarding the control of our borders, one could be excused for exercising proper due diligence. After all, we all remember what happened in that movie 'Poltergeist'.

    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!

    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.

    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 essential for front loader washer !

    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.

    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).

    Brought two 27” Laundry Pedestals, one for my washer and one for my dryer, best investment to put my laundry detergent and dryer sheets in, plus it makes my washer and dryer sit up off the floor so I don’t have to bend down as low to put the clothes in washer or dryer, and it gives me the extra storage space..love it.

    Only bought it to elevate the dryer so i dont have to bend down as much. Pedestal itself is nothing special, just a drawer with limited use. I can put dryer sheets but laundry detergent wont fit, shoe rack for dryer wont fit etc. Height limits many things. I just placed instruction manuals and nothing else. Was delivered with a dent and a cracked plastic lining inside so make sure u check inside too! Bestbuy replaced it without issues.

    I bought this under drawer unit for my washer - it lifts the dryer to a good point but I feel an extra inch or two would have done wonders as the HE liquid detergent containers are too tall to fit in this drawer. The unit was pricey in my opinion but spread over the life of the washer/dryer it was a purchase I was willing me make. I love having it, seems sturdy only complaint is the lack of a few inches in height.

    Useful addition to washer and dryer

    I purchased a pair of these pedestals for my new washer and dryer. It's convenient to have the front loader higher. I use the storage for rags, towels, dryer sheets and the like. I like to open the drawers so I'm less likely to drop clean clothes on the floor, but rather in the drawers. The drawers operate smoothly and the washer and dryer are bolted to the pedestals. My only complaint is I think these are rather expensive compared to the actual washer and dryer.

    Hoping for a throne, but settled for a pedestal

    I was so proud of my new dryer; I wanted to place it on a throne from which it could rule the laundry room. Alas, I only found a pedestal to elevate my dryer, but the pedestal was beautiful and strong and added an air of majesty to the otherwise dry demeanor of the machine. Plus, it precluded my having to bend down another foot, which gave my back some additional relief. All hail the dryer, and back its majestic pedestal.

    A pedestal for the dryer to give you storage...

    quite the convenient accessory while raising the dryer to the same height as the washer. Only complaint is LG's poor design decision to make it where the large plastic insert for the Dryer (for laying garments like sweaters, etc. on to dry in a certain way), does not fit in the drawer when you are not using it. You're relegated to putting the tray insert on top of the dryer.

    Great help for raising height, less for storage

    The pedestal is a back saver! Easy on the back as it reduces the bending distance which is a blessing when my back is out! As for the storage space, good for certain heights of detergents, but not all. Generally, it does help organize the different detergents and helps keep the room looking tidy, but spray bottles and large containers of detergents must still be kept outside the drawer.

    I wanted the pedestal to raise my washer up to a more easily accessible height and it does just that. It's an added bonus that I get extra storage too, although some of the taller bottles don't fit. The washer seems secure. If your washer seems too low or the door doesn't swing open because the laundry basket is in the way, I recommend getting the pedestal. Be sure to have the washer installed correctly to avoid possible problems.

    1) Good capacity and nice construction. We have it under the dryer only( we bought the pedestal washer). 2) Unlike my older kenmore elite pedestal, it lacks a “pull out shelf” to Hold laundry basket.. while unloading clothes from dryer! But none of the current pedestals come with this option nowadays. 3) Helps with easier loading and unloading dryer, due to the added height!

    Delivered and installed timely as promised. It's really not worth the money itself, but we got a promotion on it. And it does help to elevate the dryer so you dont have to bend as much for the front loading dryer and does match the washer and dryer. So aesthetically pleasing and has practical use, but is pricey in itself. You can use the washer and dryer without it, but would have to bend more.

    These pedestals are a must-have for this washer and dryer set, unless you are stacking them. These pedestals are pretty sturdy, have plenty of space, however I wish they were a tad-bit taller, but still plenty of depth. My only gripe (hence the 4 star rating, instead of 5) about these pedestals is the price, I do believe they are a bit overpriced, however, I would definitely recommend them despite that.
