As of 2015, shoppers can purchase LG washing machines and pedestals at Lowe's, Sears, Best Buy, the Home Depot and Gerhard's Appliances. Pedestals are usually sold separately, but some stores offer them with bundled washers and dryers.
As of 2015, pedestals in the LG WDP4 series cost about $250 when sold individually and are available in red, white and graphite steel. Some stores only advertise the units in discounted bundles when the customer is purchasing both a washer and dryer. The pedestals are compatible with front-loading washers and typically raise the units 13 to 14 inches higher. The added height eliminates the need for excessive bending and makes the front door easily accessible for users with restricted movement or physical pain. The pedestals also function as storage drawers, providing space for laundry supplies or linens.
Customer reviews indicate that LG pedestals are well-built and hold the washing machine steady without noisy vibration. The drawer also comes with an interior divider to organize supplies in separate compartments. While customer ratings are high overall, some buyers feel that the pedestals are overpriced based on their limited functional value. Many customers are unsatisfied with the drawers' interior height, which is not tall enough to house larger detergent bottles or boxes in upright positions.
