SOURCE: Drops of water inside pedestal of washer.

Sounds like you have a leak around the door bellow somewhere, or your drain pump. The bellow is the rubber gray boot the seals around the wash tub and door. You will need to remove the bottom panel under the door to be sure. Remove the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. Once removed, the panel will drop down, then off. Inspect the washer with a load running. If the bellow leaks, a tell tale sign will be moisture showing up on the concrete counter weight in the front of the washer. Double check your drain pump and hoses as well. The pump is located directly under the wash tub in the front of the washer. The water tends to pool in the cabinet before it leaks out and drops into the pedestal drawer. If the bellow is leaking, make sure inspect it for rips and tears. You may just have a banding clamp that is loose. If the pump is leaking, make sure the clean out trap is on correctly and snug.

PS If you just purchased this washer and are experiencing problems already, this repair is covered under the one year limited warranty. Inspecting for a leak is not going to void the warranty. However, removing any major parts may. Just do an inspection to see if it is something obvious. If you suspect a part failure, get in touch with the retailer. If this was purchased from S**rs, they usually have a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. If you are not happy with the appliance, they should take it back.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

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

Will LAB2700LQo pedestal fit my Kenmore model 110-47532602 or 1108752601


Even though the Sears brand is made by Whirlpool, the 110 series is an exclusive line. IT is not likely to fit. You will have to measure the base and mounting holes on the pedestal and the machine.

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.

Balancing the washer on the pedestal


Yes, ljharlow,

What is your Question?

You have a problem balancing the washer on the pedestal??
You must first balance the washer and then put it on the pedestal!
I take it you bought and picked up an installed your own machine.
The delivery men know to do the leveling foirsy and then raise them on to the pedestal
If you have two people you can have one person lift the front of the machine by tilting it back wards on the pedestal so the front goes up in the air a little and the second person turns the adjustable legs till it is level! If you laid the washer on its side ,front,or back at any time since you bought it then you threw the machine out of balance and YOU DO need service to correct this situation!!!!!!!
bless you Huuum
