SOURCE: remove pedestal drawer from washer

First remove the top of the washer via 3 tork, 7mm hex head screws (they are hidden located on rear of washer) then you can see to line up the tub with the shipping bolts. Just put 2 in --one lower and upper opposing each other and that will be sufficient. I believe there is two screws holding the drawer in located at the track towards the front of the drawer. Now you can lean it over with no worries to remove pedestal

If you pull out the drawer (completely) you should find 1 or 2 screws on each side that bolts the slider to the drawer. Remove these, then lift out the drawer. This then gives you full access inside. ...JimS

SOURCE: Cant open soap drawer on washer

I opened up the top of the washer by unscrewing the screw in the back. then I pressed down hard on the white plastic cover of the soap dispenser that you will see on the front left hand side of the machine. I also moved it slightly to the right by pushing on the side of the same unit.

The soap dispenser then opened up fine. I cleaned out the soap dispenser from any crud that developed in it. Now it opens and closes nicely.

Did you know there is a class action lawsuit against LG for mold that develops inside of this model washer? I joined in the lawsuit. There should be no mold accumulating in any washer.

SOURCE: remove washer pedestal drawer

I have a GE front loader on a pedestal & needed to remove the drawer. I got an answer from their website below. Basically, on this model, unscrew the hex-head screw at the FRONT of the side rails on each side.

Electrolux pedestal drawer won't close


Good Afternoon Apetgroomer,

I see that you're having trouble with your Electrolux pedestal drawer, model# EPWD15TS, door not closing. There are 2 pieces inside the drawer that help to keep the drawer shut that could be broken. One is the drawer strike, which is actually attached to the drawer itself. The other is the drawer actuator, which is attached to the casing which holds the drawer. Check both of these parts, and if it is one of them, i suggest contacting the manufacturer to se if they have any replacement parts.

-Best Regards-

How do you lower the height on a LG washer and pedestal? It's too high by 1" to fit under my wall cabinets.


The pedistal has 4 leveling legs on the bottom of it you can adjust to a certain point. You may have to take the lefts off completely and if it still doesn't fit, you unfortunately didn't measure properly.

Are LG washer/dryer pedestals a bad idea? We have an LG washer and dryer in our garage on concrete and have no issues with vibration. We recently purchased the pedestals for these and have been warned...


On a concrete floor these pedestals have a greater success than any other flooring. Nevertheless, more shaking will occur. One solution that has worked is installing "shake away" rubber pads with the pedestals. Not sure if there's an appliance parts store near you that carries this product. But like I said earlier, the fact that they are on a concrete floor helps.

How do you install whirlpool duet pedestal


Make sure that you get the pedestal designed for your washer. The white pedestal for the GHW9400P would be LAB2700MQ. (There are slight differences in the pedestals for different series washers. The holes in the base of the washer will not line up with the holes in the pedestal for a mismatched combination.)

First if your washer has been installed, uninstall it. You need to turn off the water. Then disconnect the power cord and (carefully) the fill hoses. Loosen the hoses first and then completely remove them. Drain the hoses into a bucket. Disconnect the drain hose from the back of the washer. Use pliers to squeeze the clamp to get the drain hose loose.

Pull the washer away from the wall. Cover the area behind the washer with cardboard and tip the washer onto its back (on the cardboard).

Pull out the drawer of the pedestal. Next snap the spacers into the holes on the top of the pedestal. (These are part of the hardware kit in the drawer of the pedestal.) Remove the shipping spacers from the front of the pedestal (behind the drawer). Remove the Philips head screw from the drawer slides and pull the drawer completely out (save the screws). Push the slides back into the pedestal.

Look at the washer and remove the feet if present. Partially install two of the hex head screws from the pedestal installation kit in the bottom holes of the washer. (These are at the center back of the washer if it is standing up.) Leave the screws about 3/8" from the bottom of the washer. Move the pedestal over to the washer and slide the keyhole openings of the pedestal over the two partially installed screws. Position the pedestal against the top of the washer and insert the remaining two hex head screws. Do not tighten completely.

Align the pedestal with the base of the washer on all sides. When it is lined up, tighten the 4 screws by reaching through the drawer opening of the pedestal. Bring the washer and pedestal back upright. Reinstall the washer (remove the packaging if this was a new install). Level (front to back and side to side) the washer using the pedestal feet (again reach through the drawer opening). Make sure that all 4 feet touch the floor. Tighten all 4 locknuts.

Pull out the drawer slides and reinstall the drawer. Reinstall the Philips screws. Close the drawer.

For pictures of the install, go to the Whirlpool support site http://www.whirlpool.com/owner_center . Search for your pedestal and get the installation manual. The direct link for the LAB2700MQ0 install is http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Installation%20Instructions%20-%208537141.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Detergent drawer will not open


Here's a possible solution: Remove the two screws on the bottom side of the plastic clips on the back of the washer (leaving the clips attached to the washer's top), then use the palms of your hands to sharply push the top back about an inch and a half and lift the top off the machine. Now, if you can see enough through the translucent plastic to tell where the hang up is, you can drill a small hole in the top of it to allow you to push that part down so the drawer will open. Then, use foil duct tape to seal the hole.
