Daughter In military, transfered. Military will not move the washer without shipping bolts in place. LG unit purchased from & Installed by Sears. They did not leave the shipping bolts. Using two people to move the washer is certainly an ergonomic method for moving the washer up or down a flight of stairs or perhaps with some due care several miles across town. HOWEVER, if the military won't move it to the truck without the shipping bolts, they won't move it 500+ miles either. When by process of trial and error I determine the shipping bolt size I'll post it here even though this issue first arose in from January. Assuming that the other persons washer has been moved, I wonder what size bolts he used. Questions and answers should go in both directions. Sort of a feed backwards and feed forwards No ?
Just looked at mine (we had to order them before the military would move ours). They are two different sizes, have a long plastic washer (lengthwise), and are - believe it or not - like a lag bolt on the end! A hybrid mess meant to force us to order them, if you ask me. Not sure you should try rigging it, best if you order them, you'll see what I mean when you get them. Sorry, we were in the same boat too. Wish I never bought this LG, but that's for another post.

If a headlight doesn't work on Low beam but does work on High, you have to replace the whole sealed-beam unit or headlamp. ... Pull out the bulb assembly, remove the old bulb, and install the replacement.
To receive a Military Discount from majority of the places I have visited, you do not have to be active Military. However, just be mindful of more prestigious markets that do not offer a Military Discount. Walmart, Kmart, etc.
No do not replace the shipping bolts. I assume you have a front loading washer. The tub is secured by bolts during transport. Then they have to be removed so that the washer will operate properly without damaging the machine.
If you are moving the washer for a long distance move, it is recommended that the shipping bolts be reinstalled to help prevent damage to the drum and suspension mechanism. This would be especially important if you're using a professional moving company, as they won't be able to move/load/unload it without problems.
If the move is relatively short and won't experience alot of aggressive movement, you can likely move the washer without chance of damage - provided you are careful and don't bounce the washer around.
Here's the info from the Maytag website, regarding moving front loading appliances:
If you are moving to a new home and plan to take your front-load washer and dryer pair with you, please call
800-688-9900, and speak to a fabric care expert. Our expert can recommend a Maytag-authorized servicer who will reinstall new shipping bolts to your washer.
New shipping bolts must be reinstalled to avoid internal suspension and structural damage to your washer during transport.
OK, so get your model number handy and give them a call, (you're missing some digits/alphas) you can get an online copy of your owner's manual that will show you the part numbers for the shipping bolts, if you've misplaced them, or give a call to the toll free number for Maytag, and they'll provide you with the part numbers needed so you can order them yourself and likely save some money versus having a service tech some out and do it for you/

Hope you find this very helpful and best regards!
Do you know what frequencies they use? This scanner does not cover the 200-400 MHz range, where military planes operate in the United States. If the UK military uses the same band then you probably will not be able to monitor them.
if you are moving and you are using a dolly to move it than you dont need shipping bolts. i del. preowned washers and dryers everyday and never put shipping bolts back in just becareful and use your head and you will not hurt anything.dont bounce it down stairs either it is a 2 person job so dont forget to get some help
If your not getting an error message I would suspect that the margins have somehow been set beyond the printable area. I don't know what the width on a "Military Shipping Label" is but I've had issues with Zebra label printers printing on the very edges of the labels.
