    These are a must if you have the LG Washer/Dryer!

    These pedestals are not cheap by any stretch of the imagination. If you purchase them along with the washer and dryer, you will be adding an extra $500 to the purchase total. Some people may balk at this and deem it an unnecessary expenditure. I can assure you that, like the LG washer and dryer, this will be money well-spent! The pedestals serve several useful and important purposes. First and foremost, they raise both the washer and dryer to a comfortable level that does not require bending or stooping down. This feature alone was worth the price of admission for me! I have a relatively small laundry room and so space is at a premium for me. The fact that these pedestals also have spacious drawers in them is just icing on the cake for me! The drawers slide out very easily and don't feel cheap or flimsy at all. They easily glide out and slide shut. The drawer is divided into two equal sections and both are quite spacious. However, it would've been really nice if the largest liquid detergent containers would've been able to fit in these. That might have made the pedestals too tall and thereby affected the optimum height of the washer. My large container of Tide will fit in the drawer, but I have to lay it down on its side. I mitigated this problem by buying smaller bottles of Tide, Downy, and All that will fit in the drawers. I refill them from my larger containers that I store in the closet. These pedestals were, in my opinion, an essential component to the LG washer and dryer. They have augmented two fantastic machines and made them even better. The pedestals afford storage space for laundry items, which is a huge plus. They also elevate the machines to facilitate easy loading and unloading of clothes. If I had it to do all over again, I'd buy the pedestals without a second thought!

    The height does matter

    Johnny at the Pasadena Best Buy/Pacific Sales store has been invaluable in our buying process for our kitchen remodel. Our intent was only to buy a new fridge and cooktop. And after dealing with Johnny on those purchases, we ended up going back to him to pick up thes pedestals, wall oven unit, vent hood, washer and dryer. Johnny actually highly recommended these pedestals even though I believe they are overpriced. But he convinced me that it's a good long term investment ergonomically-easier on the back. And I am beginning to believe he was right on this point. Aside from his product knowledge, Johnny was on the lookout for price match and rebates as well as upcoming deals that helped us make the most use of our budget. I hardly write reviews. This would be my 3rd review ever (Best Buy reviews would be the 3rd set of reviews). But it is my pleasure to be writing this review for Johnny and his boss Herb as they have been super helpful; pre, during and post purchase - an end-to-end experience that defines customer service. I will definitely refer friends and family to Johnny and team there

    Expensive but worth it

    I bought the LG front load washer and dryer but comtemplated for a long time if buying the pedestals were really necessary. Afterall they are very expensive when compared to the washer/dryer themselves. Most people would think that they would use them for storage of their detergents, but you should know that the liquid detergents don't fit! They are about 2 inches too high to fit standing upright. But we've found that the pedestals are better for storing dirty clothes, blankets, or other items that you might need in a hurry and within reach. So don't think that you need them for storaging only washing products! Afterall the capacity is huge and you could use it for many things, you just have to be creative. As for as the looks, it is worth every dollar paid because it makes the whole set of washer/dryer looks so good, and it makes putting and pulling the clothes in and out of them easy. This model matches the machines better than the pedestals with the handles that usually are displayed at the stores. I have no regrets spending money on them.

    I was shocked the pedestal was going to cost nearly half what the appliances did. So, I waited to try the new W/D without. After a couple of months, I finally decided the machines are lower to the floor than my previous brand of front loaders, and the drums sat further back or were longer, too. Buying the pedestals put the W/D at almost the perfect height to save my back. The storage drawers also helped declutter the laundry area. Might be overpriced, but they do the job. I had to raise the pedestal leveling feet high enough to get the drawer to clear the carpet and trim in front of the laundry closet. If I had to raise them much more, I think a piece of plywood under them would have been needed to ensure they stayed level without rattling too much. Just FYI, in case you have a lower floor under the pedestal and a higher floor where the drawer needs to open.

    The pedestal for my 13-year-old Samsung was just a big empty cavern where things got lost, but the LG pedestal has a divider that you can adjust for your particular needs. It helps keep bottles upright, and I can easily get to all of the items in the back without shuffling anything around. I have a SideKick under the washer, so I was afraid that all of the stuff I had stored in two pedestals under the older washer and dryer weren't going to fit in one, but I was pleasantly surprised about how much actual storage this pedestal has. I really think the divider helps me optimize the space so it all fits.

    Good quality pedestal

    Got a pair of these for washer and dryer. I like the quality of these drawers compared to others that I have had for Kenmore appliances. The drawers come out smoothly, have a nice finish to them, allow plenty of storage and put your washer and dryer at a nice height. I have a small area for washer and dryer and this was still a perfect height for fitting into the area. I priced these at several stores and Best Buy was much cheaper than Sears and Lowes(I think it was Lowes, it could have been Home Depot). I am a little upset at how much pedestals always run because there is no where else you can buy another brand so it's always overpriced for what is essentially a small container but the build and quality isn't bad.

    We've had the new washer, dryer and sidekick for about 2 weeks now and we love them. They are much quieter than our old ones and the clothes are washed and dried much faster and look and feel better. Being on the pedestals reduces the bending over when loading and unloading. Installed them myself. They are very heavy! I ended up putting small sliders under each foot so I could move them - works great! Impossible to move them without the sliders. Highly recommend you do the same because you will eventually have to move them. When you arrange for delivery make sure they will take them out of the box and put both the washer and dryer on their pedestals. Like I said earlier, they are very heavy.

    Pedestal for LG Washer/Dryer

    I bought a LG Washer/Dryer combo and it was pretty apparent that you almost need to buy these pedestals. While I wasn't necessarily looking forward to adding 2 expensive items to my already heavy purchase I think these look good and add decent storage in my already cramped laundry room. I am around 6' tall and my wife is slightly shorter. If we didn't buy these the washer and dryer are pretty low to the ground. The pedestal acutally raises the controls at just below eye level for me so it is nice to not have to hunch over to operate. The biggest draw back is that large degerent bottles don't fit in the drawer. We got around that by getting a smaller bottle to store detergent in but would be nice if it was 4" deeper.

    Lg should lower the price on what amounts to storage boxes to lift your dryer and washer to ideal height. Very expensive for what it does but still a necessary item when considering front loaders. Absurd that detergent bottles do not fit standing up. They have to be tilted. Not a deal breaker but nevertheless annoying. Decided to switch to pods. What is another 1” tall? Come on lg listen to the thousands of complaints about the height! We all can’t be wrong. Or detergent manufacturers need to adapt their scale to the pedestal model.

    neccessary product for storage and height

    These pedestals are a necessity with a front load washer and dryer to set them at an easy to use height. Anyone at least 5' 3" or taller would be well advised to buy them with the corresponding front loaders to save their backs. they work great under the LG 4.0 matching washer / dryer set that I have. It also gives you a lot of available storage space. They are the same circumference as the washer and dryer at around 13 inches high. If in the Stockton, Ca. vicinity see sales associate Zach and his floor manager Alex. They gave me a package deal on a full set and helped me to establish interest free credit through the store making my purchase possible. great products sold by even greater people.

    I bought the LG dryer along with the LG washing machine and couldn't be happier. This dryer has a lot of great features that my precious dryer lacked. The delicates setting dries my clothes very gently thus eliminating the tedious hang drying. However, when I have no other choice but to hang the garments, I also have the option of setting the dryer to alert me when the clothes are 80% dry. The wrinkle free option is also great as it will toss the load at interval times in case you can't take it out right away. Haven't tried the steam option yet but I'm sure that it'll work extremely well as this machine is truly great!

    Pedestals are a must for front load washer/dryer

    In my previous home I had all KitchenAid appliances. In moving to FL and buying a new build home, the builder's grade appliances did not cut it with me. Within one year I purchased an LG front load washer and dryer plus pedestals. Could not get KitchenAid so LG was the next best. These pedestals make it so much better to load and unload. The drawer allows for some additional storage in my laundry room. Thank you Pacific Kitchens and Best Buy.

    We saved our pennies for a nice front W/D pair, and certainly chose our savings based on purchasing the pedestals too. Obviously there is a huge profit in the sale of these pedestals, but frankly the value is there for my family, seeing as how the daily loading and unloading of the W/D pair is much more comfortable using these pedestals. Sure they cost more, but do yourself a favor and don't spend the money for a nice front load washer dryer set unless you buy the pedestals too! They are great for storing laundry things we don't need often, but the best job they do is bring the laundry up to a comfortable height.

    I love having a pedestal as it makes loading and unloading the washer so comfortable also love the extra storage it provides. I previously had an LG washer and pedestal and to my disappointment when I bought my new LG washer I was not able to use that pedestal, I had to buy a new one as they would not install the new machine on the old pedestal. So the new pedestal is just fine, almost exactly like my previous one that was in excellent condition and on its way to a recycling center.

    Wanted a pedestal for the dryer

    I'm short but still wanted the pedestal to raise the dryer so I didn't have to bend to unload the dryer. I like the idea of the extra storage beneath the dryer for dryer sheets and the extra stuff that always seems to clutter up the laundry area. Since the laundry is in the basement on the same side as the sump, I like the dryer being raised higher off the floor in case the sump ever backs up. It hasn't happened, but it's a bit of a concern. I like the look of the dryer being raised and not dragging clothes on the floor as I'm removing them from the dryer to hang or fold them.

    These are a must have if you have the height to accommodate them. They will save your back in the long run. The pedestals lift the washer and dryer to the perfect height to where you are not having to hunch over to move clothes. Color match is perfect. There is no added vibration or noise because of the pedestals. And the machines are secured onto the pedestals so sliding of the machines will not happen. The drawers have adequate room. They easily hold our detergent pods, dryer sheet, stain remover spray, etc. I will never buy a washer and dryer without pedestals again.

    I bought this pedestal for my new front load washer because I did not want to deal with constant bending over to load or unload clothes. The pedestal is a great buy! Thanks to it, doing laundry is easy on my back. And the fact that I am a short girl is my advantage too! Currently my pedestal is half way filled with laundry items, and I love the fact that all the soaps, dryer sheets, softeners and what not are concealed! Anyway, I absolutely recommend purchasing the pedestal for your new washer, it is so much more convenient with it!!!

    I was a little worried about the materials from which the pedestals were made but they appear to strong and sturdy enough to support the weight of the washer and dryer. They don't vibrate or walk across the room during the spin cycles or fast tumbling of clothes. Save your back, spend the money on these stands. Adding and removing clothes is much easier with these. It also puts the control panels for the washer and dryer at eye level.

    I was warned that having a front loading washer would be difficult if I did not also get the pedestal to raise it up to a convenient work level. They were so right but the standard pedestal is 15" and that was not going to allow it and the washer to fit under my cabinets. But this alternative 13.6" pedestal was perfect so I bought one for the washer and the dryer. And the drawer space is very handy. The pedestals and washer and dryer bolt together into a very stable and quiet matched set.

    A Huge Help!

    I was leery of buying the pedestal. I felt like it was a rip off to purchase an expensive appliance and basically "have to" purchase a $200 accessory for it to function properly. However, I have to say the pedestal adds to the machine considerably. I knew it would cost more than the machine by itself, but it is well worth the price for the added height and the storage space. When you price machines, just add the cost of the pedestal into the cost of the machine from the beginning. I also asked for a discount and received $50 off right on the spot.
