Hi, I am in the process of a move & I have found the brace kit that was removed when the washer was installed, but the Sears fella removed it & I didn't watch. I can't find any instructions for reinstalling these braces. Any ideas? Thanks so much., Trish
Hello! if youre not moving the washer a great distance it will be fine.The braces are for shipping,I deliver washers without the shipping pins all the time. Short distance should be fine,the braces keep the tub in place.

The tub should move easily from side to side, however, a better test is to push down sharply on the tub and let go, it should come up and stop the first time, not bounce up and down several times. If it bounces up and down the suspension rods are shot. The part number for the kit of 4 is W10780045, all 4 need to be replaced as a set. To replace them the top needs to be loosened and lifted up, the rods disconnected from the top 2 at a time and replaced (doing opposite corners makes it easier IE: front right and left rear, front left and then right rear). Disconnect the top ends of two rods, lower top, lean washer back and pull out the disconnected two rods from the bottom, reverse the process to install.
Hi the answer to your problem may well be in your question!When machines are moved they sometimes use transit screws to keep the drum still.They are always to be found on new machines and the engineer that installs the machine will as a matter of course remove these screws when installing a machine.Perhaps your removal firm installed some transit screws as they moved your machine but forgot to take them out again.If this is the case they don't try and use it again as it could result in serious damage.I hope no damage has been done as a result of trying to use the machine with these screws in but thats something you should take up with the people you presumably paid to remove and install your machine if this turns out to be the case.
Washers n dryers usually require some balancing after a move to the new area, and when you lift the washer on a dolly, you lift it from the rear. Assuming you've already tipped the washer slighlty to one side, checked the bottom for which side has the most metal underneath. This is best done with 2 people. Do the same with the dryer. The braces are used to help balance or to keep from tipping when the machine was packed inside a large box.
Sounds like the belt may be off. Was it moved with the shipping braces out? It may have caused some internar damage. You might check to see if the hum is coming from the door lock area. If the lock is out it won't let drain or spin.
yes you do have to remove the top off the washer and the washer should come with a mounting kit that must be used when stacking this unit. as far as your filling and draining problem i have had this problem several times before you have to replace your speed control board or sometimes called the speed control unit in the lower right hand corner of your washer
