Transporting a washer

I have a 1999 Whirlpool washer (and dryer) that I want to donate. Can I lay the washer on its side or its front so it will fit in my van? I know there are problems with older models leaking.

Remove the top cover, and put plenty of packing down both sides to prevent the inside parts from moving about, this way it will be o/k to transport it on it's side.
Plz rate my solution.

Transporting a Kenmore front load washer and gas dryer

Yes you can lay them down. Some modals call for 24 hour reaping time before you can plugin to run. Reaping meaning some modal have the new R134A coolant in them so if they lay down wait 24 hours before use. Gas you can just lay then down and brace it so it can't move around.

Should the dryer be placed on the front to make it easier to take the back off? That's what a repair person did and when they turned it back on it made a serious screaching noise.

There's no such instruction from the manufacturer to lay the dryer on its front when removing the back panel. The back panel can be easily removed with the dryer in upright position. Only leaning the dryer a few degrees is advisable by propping up the bottom edge, not laying it on any side, when access to the inside of the dryer is necessary. Otherwise, the internal moving parts will likely dislodge and cause problems like yours.

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.

you will want to lay the duet unit on its back. remove the legs. put the base up to the bottom of the duet. you can use the legs as bolts and pass them thru the top of the base back into the bottom of the duet appliance, using them as bolts. I have had some people just get new bolts. this should fix you up. please rate this if it was any help.

im going to assume its a front loader. try opening the access panel by removing 3 screws along bottom front of unit. give a look inside, there should be 4 suspension/shock absorbers holding drum form shifting.If disconnected the just "snap"into place with quarter turn into holder.while under there the pump is located right there in front, open the "button trap" front of pump see if perhaps theres something inside pump housing making noise

Oil leak

A small amount is not serious. There is no good way of adding oil to the transmission unless you want to take the top off the transmission.
