The pedestal is necessary to elevate the washer/dryer door to a reasonable height, but it's designed as a hollow can (with drawer) so the loud noise from the washer is amplified by it. This is a poor design! A front load washer has a longer wash cycle with water that is shot in at regular intervals. Every time the water shoots into the washer it sounds like someone is breaking in! Our washer placement is a good 6 inches from our dryer, and 12" from the wall and we have it in the basement! From our kitchen and living room in the floor above, this sounds like someone is breaking in! Seems to me that this pedestal should have been designed to quiet the sound rather than amplify it! Kind of pricey for the benefit of a drawer... but the disadvantage of added noise.
I bought this to go with my new Kenmore dryer and it is a great addition. Less bending, more storage, and looks just fine. Better yet I had the whole package delivered and installed and it went off like clockwork.
This came with our Kenmore washer and dryer set, and we love them. Perfect for 50oz detergent bottles, but if you buy 100oz ones, they won't fit.
I purchased a pair of these pedestals to go with my washer and dryer purchase. They matched the machines perfectly in size, color and strength. The leveling feet were easy to adjust and I liked the fact that they were rubberized. The drawer was ample in size and comes with a removable divider. They came with good instructions and necessary hardware. By using the pedestals the machine doors were at a better height to access the clothes.
Great product. No more bending over to do laundry. Storage keeps everything in its place, always looks nice and neat
I previously purchased one to go with my dryer 2 years ago. So glad I did. It makes the dryer a perfect height. I just bought a new washer and would not have a front loader without a pedestal. My 88 year old mother has the same type of machines without the pedestals and I don't know how she can enjoy using the machines without them. The only complaint I have is that they should maybe be another inch higher because some of the detergent bottles ( even the smaller ones) and other laundry related bottles are a little too tall to fit in properly sometimes. The other complaint is the price, but it's worth it to have the pedestals.
These pedestals are a must when buying Washer/Dryer. I like the Storage Drawer. A nice big space to store almost anything related to wash/dry. Unless Washer/Dryer is going on an elevated space, the pedestals are a must because the machines are much too low.
The Kenmore laudry pedestal is an excellent product. It fit our Kenmore front loading washer perfectly. You could not ask for a better made product. I highly recommend this product.
I know these items are expensive and don't seem to go on sale with the machines but they really make doing laundry easy. Also, the drawers are much larger then they appear and hold not only my laundry supplies but other household cleaning supplies.
