go to the back of the unit and visually check for the transportation bolts also if this unit is new you will not be able to do any repairs to the unit otherwise you would void your warranty My suggestion is to call for service immediatley if the unit is new do not run the unit until you go around the back and remove the transport bolts they are not noted in the installation manual and should of been taken off by the delivery people if you ran the unit with the bolts in place pray that it did not damage the machine I await your reply to find out if this unit is new and under warranty Thanks Rick

I am looking to buy a used 4 year whirlpool duet washer and dryer. Do you need transport bolts to move either? Also what capacity is the washer and dryer


The transport bolts are required to be installed before transporting the machines. This is to support the suspension system to prevent damage to the machines during transportation.

The washer has a capacity of 9.0 kg or 19.8 lbs with a volume of 3.7 cubic feet. The dryer's capacity is 7.0 cubic feet.

My whirlpool duet gets to the spin cycle and gets to the super, fast speed and starts to shake Is there anything I can check before getting a repair person involved?


is it on a pedistal? pedistals tend to male it worse due to the raised center of gravity.

make sure the feet are adjusted correctly and is sits squarly on the ground. Is it new? did whoever installed it remove the bolts that are installed for transportation?

Just bought new whirlpool duet front load washer missing transport bolts


They are not critical - only if you will be moving again.

Check for proper functionality, and notify the seller of your findings.

During the final spin cycle, our front loading whirlpool is making a really loud noise - it sounds like a train is going through the house. It is in the basement on a concrete floor.


If the washer is brand new, look on the back panel and make sure the 4 transportation bolts have been removed. The bolts should be roemoved completely - they are only necessary to protect the washer during transportation.

If the bolts are removed, adjust the front two legs to be 1/4 inch higher than the back two. That 1/4 inch will balance the washer during the spin cycle, perfectly.
