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

I had the same problem...thanks for posting a solution. I agree with the solution posted above, but on my unit they are 1/4" HEX head screws, not phillips. Look at the illustration on page 4 here for help:

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.

SOURCE: how to remove drawer on pedestal

You need to remove the 2 screws holding the black rails on both sides of the drawer. Took us a while to figure this one out also.

My electrolux washer/dryer pedestal will not stay closed. I am looking for how to order the part


Good Afternoon Dani, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Electrolux pedestal is not remaining closed. You may need to replace the latch or rails inside of the pedestal. I can provide you with further part information once I have the model number of the pedestal. You can locate that information on the door frame of the pedestal. I look forward to helping you further. -Matt

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-

Drawer will not stay closed


Hello David, I am JK. I understand that you are having trouble with the drawer staying closed on your pedestal. I would recommend checking to make certain that nothing is caught under the pedestal keeping the drawer from closing properly. If this is not the concern, the strike and/or latch might need to be replaced.
Hope this 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.

Drawer does not stay closed.


To access the inside of the pedestal two screws are what need to be removed. These screws have a nut so you will need a wrench as well as a screw driver. The screws are located at the front of the metal rail on each side, that the drawer rides on. Empty the drawer, remove the screws and slightly lift and pull the drawer free.

The part responsible is the little white square box called a 'Latch' located at the front bottom of the casing, in the middle held by two screws. A black 'strike' on the door inserts into this Latch. If the strike is good the latch should be the problem. I took this part to Lowe's where I purchased my units. I found that this wasn't under my warranty, but they called and ordered the part for free. I just have to wait 7 days, I hope they ordered the right part!

Strike Part Number: 137006900

Latch Part Number: 137006200


Here is a web page with a break down of the parts: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Electrolux-Parts/All-Products-Parts/Model-EPWD15RR2/1412/0153050/R1007111/00001

Hoping the web page isn't against any rules, if so I'm sorry...
