How to secure front loading drum for moving????

I need to move a GE WSSH300-GOWW up a flight of stairs, 40 miles down the interstate, and then down a flight of stairs. What do I need to do to secure the drum. The manual says to use the shipping hardware, but the owner did not save it. Are these standard bolts?

    Thank you very much. Should I transport the unit on its back, or in the upright position?

I have a 60 inch Mitsubishi and there are light red shadows in the tv. is this an easy fix


It sounds like you need to re-adjust your convergence. The purpose of adjusting your convergence is to align your red, green, and blue colors. Moving your TV often causes this problem. I hope you get it going.

I have a LG WM0532HW. What are the drum bolt sizes thr.& length


Hello Jeff,

Unfortunately, these are specially made bolts that have threads only on the first section of the bolt, so they can secure the wash drum and not interfere with anything else. You also need the special sleeves for the bolts. I would not try to use standard bolts from a hardware store, as they could damage the wash drum if you overtightened them or they were too long. LG, and most washer manufacturers, don't publish the size, thread count and length of their transport (shipping) bolts, hence the reason they advise to keep them for future use.

So if you're only moving the washer down a set of stairs, you should be fine if you take it easy and either hand carry it with two (2) people, or use an appliance truck to move it down the stairs.

If, however, you're looking to move the washer any distance via truck, etc., you'll want the shipping transport bolts and sleeves to keep the drum and suspension system from getting damaged.

You're best bet is to get in touch with LG customer support and obtain a set of the transport bolts. You can reach them by callling them from 8AM to 8 PM toll free at 1-877 714-7486 and follow the prompts to reach customer support.

Here's a link to the owner's manual for your washer, just in case you've misplaced yours.

Lost or not retained shipping bolts


Just looked at mine (we had to order them before the military would move ours). They are two different sizes, have a long plastic washer (lengthwise), and are - believe it or not - like a lag bolt on the end! A hybrid mess meant to force us to order them, if you ask me. Not sure you should try rigging it, best if you order them, you'll see what I mean when you get them. Sorry, we were in the same boat too. Wish I never bought this LG, but that's for another post.

Need to secure for moving


You should have some bolts that came with the machine. They are fitted into the rear casing and screw into the drum to hold it steady. If you dont have the bolts then you can try packing some towels around the outside of the drum ( from underneath ) to hold it steady.

GE WSSH300 stops after wash and need to hit start again to finish


Be sure to rule out one of the simplest things first---be sure the button that gets depressed when you close the lid is still functioning (or even THERE) Sometimes, if you have had a severly offset load, this switch can become damaged. Some washers will not continue to advance if it " thinks" the door is opened.

I need to move my Proform XP 620 treadmill down a flight of stairs. What is the best way to do this


Honestly, the best way to do this is to call an expert because any wrong adjustments to a treadmill can cause serious damage but if you want to attempt yourself you must try to move it whole with 2 people stronger holding the front of the tread as this is going to be the heaviest. Take the front down first down the stairs.
