The pedestals bolt into the bottom of the washer where the legs where.

This is definatly a heavy job, so it's best to get 2 more people to help you out.

#1 Remove all 4 legs that came on the washer factory.

#2 Make sure you have enough room to manouver the machines. The washer is going to be the most difficult so start with it.

#3 Have your friends tilt the machine back and you slide the pedestal under the machine.

#4 Kneel down infront of the machine to prevent it from sliding forward.

#5 Have your friends lift up the back of the machine and walk it forward until the holes in the top of the pedestal are in line wiht the holes from where the legs where.

#6 Thread in the bolts and tighten.

**You will need to take out the drawer of the pedestal to get the back bolts in. There are plastic clips on the inside of the runners, just push those down at hte same time and pull the drawer**

Good luck! Please let me know if this was helpful!

SOURCE: Front Load LG Washer and Dryer Pedestals

If the pedestals are properly installed they pretty much become part of the washer and dryer and if those are installed correctly you will have no more vibration then if the units are sitting on the floor. If possible get the washer as close to an outside wall as possible since the floor is stronger there.

Can I use a frigidare pedestal model number apwd15w fit on a kenmore model number 41122


Good Morning Kristy, thank you for your question!

Because pedestals are designed specifically for the manufacturer brand appliances, I am unable to guarantee it is compatible for installation with a different brand as the dimensions and other specifications may vary.

Best regards!

Can you remove the front panel on an HE washer that is mounted on a pedestal without removing the pedestal?


Hey gearman, In a word, Yes. I find it easier to extend the drawer out ( if applicable...some pedestal's don't have drawer's ) and then the panel will drop down un-obstructed once the screws are removed. Hope this was helpful and answered your question. Please take a second to rate this solution if to your satisfactory, if not let me know how I can assist you further. Thanks for visiting "fixya" and good luck. Macmarkus :)

unfortunetly this is common , these new frontloads spin fast even with no pedestal these things move...
make sure the locking nuts for the legs on the pedestal are screwed securely up to frame on pedestal, also could be a floor issue depending on where it is, slooping or not solid floor.
