    I finally found the proper manual online for the washing machine that we've got, and it gave step by step instructions on how to store the washing machine in cold weather. It suggested running a cycle with RV line antifreeze before storing it. This actually makes sense.

Absolutely! There are no temperature sensitive components inside that you need to worry about.

How do I pack a washing machine for moving & storage

in a perfect world you would reinstall the 3 or 4 shipping screws that came with the machine, but if they are lost (likely)you can remove the back cover and pack moving blankets between the tub assembly and the sides and bottom of the machine.The point is to prevent movement of the tub during aggressive moving and jarring which could damage the suspension springs or damper shocks.

Adora Front Load Washer was stored for 3 years now during the spinning cycle it is uncontrollable and automatically stops the cycle

Your machine has probably got a out of balance sensor fitted to it and when the drum goes out of balance it limits the motor speed to try and balance the load again. If it can't balance the load within so many attempts it will shut the machine off. Either there is to much washing in the machine or when the machine has been moved out of storage some part of the suspension has come off. Check the parts of the suspension on the drum i.e. suspension legs, springs etc. to see if anything has come off.
It may also be possible that some of the suspension may have deteriorated with sitting in storage and may need replacing.

Lw52 leaking water after storage

It sounds to me the neoprene seals have gone, which wouldhave damaged the bearing as well as the corrosion damaging bearing surface ofthe armature. To fix you need a seal kitand a new or are-welded/ ground armature shaft. To fix you be looking over $400 as a guess. Unless under guarantee, in the end it will be cheaper to buy a newmachine. Flash the reds around and you willbe amazed at the sort of discount one can get. I would advise nobody without a proper equipped workshop to consider under takeoverhauling. i

Moving/Shipping bolt re-installation for Frigidaire Front loading washer Mod # GLTF2070DS0 Serial XC40623490 instructions and tips as well as suggestions. Is this really needed, unit will be in storage...

yes it sure is a good idea to have the shipping bolts in place to move it they tend to bounce around and could damage something if not secured...also a tip would be if it will be stored where very warm sure as storage places generally are it would be a real good idea to pour about a gallon of water in tub since their is always water their to keep seals wet to prevent dry rot and if stored where hot that water may eveperate so add some to keep it moist and the seals wont dry rot

I had stored my ge frontloader washer and dryers for about 4 months and reinstalled them i turn the washer on and it runs threw its cycle and does not spin so the close are soaked in the washer the model...

I would remove the back and investigate for mouse/rat damage. If you had them in storage a rodent may have made himself a home. They like to chew thru wires and plastic components. Or a wire connection may have come loose when you moved them into storage or back from storage.

Appears dead (after being transported)

Washing machines have a cut-off switch that is activated by lifting the lid on the clothes compartment. Possible that the wires are to the terminals of this switch.
Take the top of the machine loose again and check to make sure this switch is connected.
This is where the power goes before it goes into the rest of the mechanism so it can appear dead.
