Originally purchased our duet washer and dryer without pedestals and now, as long as we were moving, I decided to add them. The original grey color was not available in the 15" high model, but the lunar silver is surprisingly close (just more shiny). The washer walks a bit on high spin with an uneven load, such as sheets tend to be, but some balancing helps. Getting the duet units on top of these is a chore. Make sure you have a couple strong guys to lift them (esp. the washer). Having the transport bolts in place is also recommended.One of our pedestals had a dent in the side fresh out of the box. The box was not damaged so Whirlpool must have manufactured it that way and I wasn't about to return it. :-( I just put that edge where it cannot be seen.Overall, having the washer and dryer higher is nice and the additional storage is appreciated. The benefits outweigh any problems.

Comments about Whirlpool 15.5" Duet Washer And Dryer Ocean Sapphire Blue Pedestal With Drawer:
We originally purchased the washer/dryer without these. It's just much easier to work with the appliances slightly higher.I installed these myself, after the fact. Decent instructions are included. Moving the washer and dryer (laying them on their backs, so to speak) is difficult, but do-able.I probably just should have bought these with the appliances
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great pedestal for the washer and dryer

it's pretty high

Great that the washer is so high, like a wall-mounted laundramat washer. Easy to remove wet clothes. But a short person would not be able to see into the cup where you pour the detergent. I can, but barely. The top is too high to fold or even reach anything except a not-very-big detergent bottle. The drawer underneath sounded appealing but I will never use it. I definitely should have gotten the 10 inch.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The pedestals arrived without any shipping damage. Installing them was not bad, just make sure you have someone to help you do them. Trick I found was install the back two screws first and get it to hook on pedestal and then do the front two. All in all, I should have bought these sooner. Great product
Works well at a good price

It was a little bit of a chore to get them installed (it took 4 men) but they work great. They create a lot of storage space under the washer and dryer and they elevate the washer and dryer and make it so much easier to fill and empty!

Pedestals for the washer and dryer
from North Riverside
nice pedestals. we would have liked them to have included drawer inserts and dividers like the pedestals had for the Maytag Epics - but these do the job: they keep the machines raised from the floor, give good structure and support, and provide a way to pass clothes from washer to dryer without clothes falling on floor and getting messed up.
Service and delivery comments:
The delivery guys installed the pedestals on the washer and dryer before they brought them into the house and did a really good job of leveling the units

I had overhead cabinets in my previous laundry room, so no room for pedestals. I took the opportunity of a move to add pedestals to the Duet washer and dryer I brought with me. The added height makes doing laundry much easier on my back. These units were made by the manufacturer of my units, so there was no worry that they wouldn't fit.
Looks good, holes didn't line up properl
from Chicago, IL
On the top of these pedestals are slots to slide the drawers in place once you insert a machine screw to the bottom of the washer/dryer. On my washer the holes (either on my washer or the pedestal) were off between 1/4" and 1/8". I had to grind the holes down to get it to fit properly.

We ordered two of these (one for our Washer, one for our Dryer). Both items had to be replace/returned several times (5x total) before we finally received two that were not damaged. Poor quality and quanity of packing material used did not protect the units during shipment. Also, one of the units was obviously damaged at the factory (before being packaged). Reason I believe this, the box was not damaged (unlike the other ones), yet the product was dented in the crease of the back corner. Suggestions: add more packing material to protect the unit during shipment...and conduct a closer inspection of the product before packaging. ABT customer service was very prompt in sending replacements.
