Install the Laundry Pedestal

Give your Washer and Dryer a lift! Add the Pedestal or Riser to your Washer and Dryer to make it more comfortable to load and unload laundry. Check your User Manual for compatibily information. For more information, follow the video below.

Do not attempt to perform this installation alone. Doing so could result in serious injuries. Samsung recommends two or more people perform this installation.

Install the Pedestal

The FlexWash and FlexDry models use a Riser (WE272N*) instead of a traditional Pedestal. They are similar, but not as tall and do not include a storage drawer.

Before you get started, you'll need to have the supplied spanner wrench, a phillips head screwdriver, and a level on hand.

To install the pedestal, start by leveling the pedestal by placing a level on all four sides and then adjusting the legs with the supplied spanner wrench.

Open the drawer of the pedestal to allow the front leg clamps to open completely. Using a phillips head screwdriver, remove the screws holding each of the four leg clamps together.

Finally, open all four leg clamps.

Installing the pedestal

Attach the Pedestal

Now you're ready to attach the pedestal and start giving some lift to your laundry. With the help of another person, lean the washer or dryer backward until it is laying down flat on its back. 

Verify that the plastic feet installed on the washer or dryer are completely tightened. With help, tilt the washer or dryer upright. Lift the washer or dryer onto the pedestal, making sure the feet on the washer align with the clamps on the pedestal. 

Verify that each foot on the washer or dryer is fully seated in the clamps on the pedestal.
