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.

SOURCE: Drops of water inside pedestal of washer.

Sounds like you have a leak around the door bellow somewhere, or your drain pump. The bellow is the rubber gray boot the seals around the wash tub and door. You will need to remove the bottom panel under the door to be sure. Remove the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. Once removed, the panel will drop down, then off. Inspect the washer with a load running. If the bellow leaks, a tell tale sign will be moisture showing up on the concrete counter weight in the front of the washer. Double check your drain pump and hoses as well. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. The water tends to pool in the cabinet before it leaks out and drops into the pedestal drawer. If the bellow is leaking, make sure inspect it for rips and tears. You may just have a banding clamp that is loose. If the pump is leaking, make sure the clean out trap is on correctly and snug.

PS If you just purchased this washer and are experiencing problems already, this repair is covered under the one year limited warranty. Inspecting for a leak is not going to void the warranty. However, removing any major parts may. Just do an inspection to see if it is something obvious. If you suspect a part failure, get in touch with the retailer. If this was purchased from S**rs, they usually have a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. If you are not happy with the appliance, they should take it back.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Remove pedestal from washer


Those washers are heavy! They have weights in them to prevent moving when spinning. Some use bolts through the bottom of the pedestal up through the washer and others use bolts down through the washer into the pedestal. Remove the bolts and lift the washer off the pedestal. You might need to get levelling bolts for the washer or check to see if the bolts are on the bottom of the pedestal. Make sure you get help to move the machine.

Just purchased a LG 8500HSA Mega Front Load Washer Special Order! What is the Pedestal Model Number?


Please check your model number. 8500HSA does not cross to anything on LG.COM.

Universal pedestals are for sale at Sears, Home Depot, Lowers, and Best Buy. The pedestal and machine will bolt together, that is, a bolt will run upward from the pedestal into threaded bolt holes in the bottom of the washer. If you can measure the distance from bolt hole to bolt hole on the bottom of the washer, you can check to see if the universal pedestal fits before you buy it.

Several months ago I took my front loaders off the pedestals. The pedestals were kind of nice for handling the clothes but about 40% of the time I spilled either detergent, bleach, or softener because the pedestal put the drawer too high for me.

Will a Frigidaire Front Load Pedestal for washer model GTLF2940ES0 Fit under other brand Washing machines?


Generally not. Most of the pedestals are build specifically for other brand machines.

Will a Frigidaire Front Load Pedestal for model GLTF2940ES0 fit other brands of front loaf washing machines?


If the foot print (base dimensions) of the new washer is the same it should fit. Make sure it fits in to the holes in the base as you don't want it to wiggle off the base when it is in spin mode. Or you could drill holes and screw the base and machine together.

Will LAB2700LQo pedestal fit my Kenmore model 110-47532602 or 1108752601


Even though the Sears brand is made by Whirlpool, the 110 series is an exclusive line. IT is not likely to fit. You will have to measure the base and mounting holes on the pedestal and the machine.

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!

Vibration


Does it have runner pads on the leveling feet on the washer resting on the pedestal?
If so, and it still moves all over, you will have to fasten the washer to the pedestal with bolts and nuts. I had a GE that did the same thing. I finally laid them on their side, drilled out the holes to fit bolts and washers I bought from Home Depot. They really don't make that clear, do they?
