Yes, my owners manual says to put one quart of RV Antifreeze in the drum of the tub then run the machine on rinse cycle. Next, shut off water supply and disconnect everything from washer and your done. You may want to get an owners manual online to confirm with your model! Mine is a Kenmore which I believe is same as Whirlpool!

How do I winterize my 2015 Jayco Jay Flight 32 RLs


Go to an RV parts store for a winterizing bypass kit for the water heater. Use POTABLE RV antifreeze and follow the instructions on the bottle. Drain all the water out of the water tank. Install the bypass kit on the water heater if it doesn't already have one. Put the water heater in the bypass mode. Add the antifreeze to the water tank. Open every water faucet including the shower head one at a time until antifreeze is present. Do this for hot and cold on every faucet. Once that is done, turn off the water pump and open all the faucets. That's all there is to it. Rember... DO NOT use automotive antifreeze. It will kill you.

Tip

Winterizing a Washing Machine


If you keep your washer in area where you need to winterize for the winter (unheated garage or unoccupied vacation home), the following steps may provide you with some helpful guidance in preparing before extreme temperatures occur and possibly leave you with damaged plumbing and/or a ruined appliance.<br /> <br /> <b><u>TOP LOADERS</u></b>:<br /> <br /> 1. Turn off the main water supply to both water taps.<br /> <br /> 2. Remove the fill hoses, drain them of all water and reinstall them - leave water supply turned OFF.<br /> <br /> 3. Add 1 gallon of Recreational Vehicle (RV) antifreeze (non-toxic) to an empty wash tub.<br /> <br /> 4. Select the DRAIN/SPIN function on the timer and allow the washer to run for one minute to drain the antifreeze from the wash tub, and any water remaining in the drain pump or drain lines. <br /> <br /> NOTE: Not all the antifreeze will drain. A small amount will remain in the drain pump and line (this is normal).<br /> <br /> 5. STOP or CANCEL the timer on the washer and UNPLUG.<br /> <br /> 6. Wipe down and dry the wash tub.<br /> <br /> 7. Clean the detergent dispenser and fabric softener dispenser and ensure they are dry.<br /> <br /> 8. Store washer, unplugged in an upright position.<br /> <br /> <br /> <b><u>FRONT LOADER</u></b>:<br /> <br /> 1. Turn off the main water supply to both water taps.<br /> <br /> 2. Remove the fill hoses, drain them of all water and reinstall them - leave water supply turned OFF.<br /> <br /> 3. Add 1 gallon of Recreational Vehicle (RV) antifreeze (non-toxic) to an empty wash tub.<br /> <br /> 4. Select the DRAIN/SPIN function on the timer and allow the washer to run for one minute to drain the antifreeze from the wash tub and any water remaining in the drain pump or drain lines. <br /> <br /> NOTE: Not all the antifreeze will drain. A small amount will remain in the drain pump and line (this is normal).<br /> <br /> 5. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to halt the cycle and UNPLUG the appliance.<br /> <br /> 6. Wipe down and dry the wash tub.<br /> <br /> 7. IMPORTANT: Check the perimeter of the door bellow (gray rubber seal) and make sure no small articles of clothing are left in the rubber folds. Clean this area thoroughly and dry. NOTE: Anything left behind will mildew over a period of time causing foul odors.<br /> <br /> 8. Clean the detergent dispenser drawer of any remaining water or fabric softener residue.<br /> <br /> 9. Store washer, unplugged in an upright position.<br /> <br /> <b><i><u>Secondary Method</u></i></b>: <br /> <br /> If you cannot find RV antifreeze (or prefer not to use it), another method of draining the washer is to remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on the line with a wet/dry shop vac. This will pull any remaining water from the drain pump and lines. <br /> <br /> If a shop vac is not available, lowering the drain hose from the standpipe to the floor will allow it to drain using simple gravity. <u>IMPORTANT</u>: On a front loader, you may have to remove the drain line from the drain pump to drain the pump. Or, use the access cover (if equipped). Most front loader pumps are accessed by removing the lower panel directly below the door.<br /> <br /> <b><i><u>Taking the Washer out of Winter Storage</u></i></b>:<br /> <br /> To remove antifreeze from the washer following storage, run the appliance on a complete cycle with detergent and NO garments added.<br /> <br /> I hope you find this information helpful. If you have any questions, please let me know.<br /> <br /> <br />

I recently bought a new rv with a samsung rf217 frig. How do I winterize it? Product lit not clear.


You do not need to do anything to the refrigerator. Just make sure it is wiped down and dry before you close it. What you need to do for winterizing is drain all of the water out of the tanks, water heater and lines. After that is done then pour RV antifreeze into your fresh water tank and pump it through all of your faucets. Once you see the pink color come out then you have it through the lines. You should have what is called a bypass valve for your water heater so you don't have to fill it completely with antifreeze. Next is to take out your battery and store it in your basement or somewhere it wont freeze. Do not put it directly on the ground. Put cardboard or something under it.

Cannot find the water pump to winterize 2010 Forest River Sierra. I can hear it running but am unable to locate it. The bypass valves are in the correct winterize position but the antifreeze will not go in...


You don't need to find the water pump. Make sure your water tank is empty before adding RV winterizer to the water tank. Run each faucet in the RV with bypass valve NOT in winterize position until you see the antifreeze begin to come out of the faucet. Do this for both cold and hot water side for each faucet. Then move bypass valve to winterize position and run for a few seconds.

Installation manual for Camco 36543 RV PUMP Converter Winterizing Kit


Couldn't find instructions per se, looks pretty straight forward. Take intake line off of pump, install coupling and valve on pump and reattach tank line to valve so that water will be sucked from tank through valve to pump and out to system. Attach hose that comes with kit to valve and it is used to pull antifreeze from jug when you move valve handle to other position.

How do you winterize a hot tub? QCA Jewel Model SUV M7


this is taken right from a jewel series QCA hot tub manual.....Winterizing
In very cold weather you may not want to venture outside to use your spa. In this case, you may move it to a heated area, or leave it as is until the weather warms. If you do leave the spa unused for a long period of time in severely cold weather, you should winterize the spa to avoid accidental freezing due to a power or equipment failure.. Follow these easy steps: Turn power to the spa OFF. Drain the spa. Use a wet vac to **** or blow out the air injectors, water jets and water suction fittings. Add 1-3 gallons of RV antifreeze, depending on the size of the spa, to all the air injectors, water jets, suction drains, and filter. Caution: Any lines not receiving adequate antifreeze are subject to freeze damage!

Winterize my Kenmore Elite Front Loading Washer


To winterize, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer.
2. Turn off the water supply.
3. Drain any residual water from the wash tub and drain lines. This can be accomplished in two different ways:

a. Method 1 - Open the lower kick panel directly below the door by removing the scews under the lower front edge. (HINT: Propping up the two front feet of the washer can help provide better access - a 2x4 works well for this). Remove the access cover on the drain pump and allow the water to drain out. You will need some towels to clean up the water. About a gallon or so will leak out.

Method 2 - Remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and take a wet/dry shop vac and pull a vacuum on the line. This will pull and remaining water from the wash tub and drain lines, avoiding a messy clean up.

NOTE: Whatever method you try, its still a good idea to remove the access cover on the drain pump and check for any foreign objects that may be caught in the trap that can sour over long periods of inactivity.

4. Make sure the placement of the drain hose in the standpipe provides an air gap to prevent any possiblity of drain water from getting siphoned back into the washer. Only place the drain hose into the standpipe about 6 inches and leave an air gap at the top.

5. Check the door bellow (rubber seal) to ensure there are no foriegn objects lodged inside the rubber folds that can mildew or rot. Clean if necessary.

6. Leave the door open when not in use, so that the tub can air out. This will prevent mold and mildew from developing and keep the tub from smelling sour.

NOTE: It may be a good idea to run a clean cylce with nothing in the tub to sanitize before shutting the washer down for the season. Use the hottest setting you have and use a small amount of bleach.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
