Factory-supplied equipment There is a packet of accessory parts supplied with your washer. Check that all the accessory parts supplied for your model are there. If any parts are missing contact your dealer immediately.
Inside the drum Water supply hose for cold water (blue marking). Water supply hose for hot water (red marking). Water drain hose. A bag which contains Covers to be placed over the holes for the transport bolts (after removing them). Clamp for drain hose. Wrench for levelling. Elbow for attaching the drain hose, e.g. to a sink. Depending on the type of connection, the following may also be required
Y-connector (can be obtained from any hardware store) in case there is only a cold water connection available.
Any residual moisture inside the drum is due to the final testing which every washing machine undergoes before leaving the factory.
On the rear of the appliance Power cord with plug.
C = cold water connection
H = hot water connection
Useful tools The following tools are helpful
Box cutter. Flat head screwdriver. Closed wrench (1/2"/13mm). Bubble level.
Dimensions a = 27.0 inches (686 mm) b = 30.7 inches (780 mm) c = 37.0 inches (940 mm) d = 16.0 inches (407 mm) Door opening angle 180 Approx. weight = 220 lbs (100 kg) Installation area
Never ground the washer to plastic plumbing lines, gas lines or hot water pipes.
Appliance stability is important, otherwise the washing machine could "walk" during the spin cycles.
The installation area must be solid and even. Soft floor surfaces, such as carpets or surfaces with foam backing, are not suitable.
If the washing machine is to be installed on a weak wood floor consider the following
0 If possible, place the washing machine in a corner of the room. 0 Screw a water resistant wooden board (at least 3/4" thick) to the floor. 0 Secure the feet of the washing machine with holding brackets. Order the holding brackets (set) from Siemens Customer Service (WMZ 2200).
Pedestal Mounting If mounting the washer on the Siemens pedestal (accessory no. WZ20395) follow the instructions supplied with the pedestal.
if Install pedestal prior to removing transport bolts.
Closet If installing the washer in a closet, observe the minimum distances according to the following table
Minimum Installation Clearances Closet Sides 1/4" (6 mm) Top 12" (305 mm) Rear 2,5" (64 mm) Front 1/4" (6 mm) Ventilation Top 48 sq. in (310 sq. cm), Bottom 24 sq. in (155 sq. cm)
The "transport or shipping" bolts are located at the rear panel of the washer. There are four of these bolts used to support the suspension system during the transport to prevent damage to the washer. These bolts are removed prior to the first use of the washer and caps are usually placed in the holes left by the bolts. When removing the bolts, remove the lower ones first then the upper ones. Keep the bolts and spanner, if there's any, for future use.
The large screws you mention are called shipping (or transport) bolts. They need to be installed prior to moving the washer to prevent damage to the drum, drum supports or counter-weights. They are inserted in the back of the washer. There are some small white plastic transport covers that you will need to remove to see where the screws insert. You can view an exploded view diagram of your washer at pcappliancerepair.com. The transport covers that I am describing are listed as item 26 under the "Top and Cabinet Parts" section.
In addition, its a good idea to remove any residual water from the wash tub and drain lines. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, an easy way to accomplish this task is to remove the drain line from the stand pipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on the line. This will pull any water that remains in the washer. This water can become stagnant if the washer remains closed up for any significant period of time. If you do not own a shop vac, an alternate method is to remove the clean out trap on the drain pump. Be prepared to place some towels down around the pump to catch any water. To access the drain pump, remove the toe panel directly below the washer door. This is done by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.
NOTE: For better access to the panel screws, you can prop up the two front feet of the washer (a 2x4 works well for this).
The drain hose normally has a plastic saddle bracket that helps the hose keep its shape. On that bracket is a screw hole. Remove one of the top panel screws in the rear of the washer and reinstall with the drain hose bracket attached. This will enable you to ship the washer with the drain hose affixed to the back of the unit and not dangling.
When removing the fill hoses, leave them attached to the washer and tape them to the back panel of the washer. Or, remove them and place them inside the wash tub for safe keeping.
I hope I've given you enough information to assist you with your move. If you have any further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
The long one go on the bottom and the short one go on top the hole for the shipping bolts are on the back might have a clear plastic cover over the holes on the back panel there is only one way to put them in start by hand tighten the bolts with nothing in the drum the holes should line up one you fill the catch and get hard to turn start using a wrench when it is done try shaking the inner tub it should not move all the shipping bolts do is keep the tub from slapping around inside the cabinet and breaking things Good luck
you can probly down load acopy of the installation guide from the manufatures web page. but all you'll need to do is re-install the 4 bolts back into machine from rear panel thers only 4 oval shaped holes on the rear of unit, that would accept them
A total of four shipping bolts need to be installed: two longer ones on the bottom and two shorter ones on the top. Each shipping bolt consists of a metal screw inside a plastic cylinder which fits between the washer suspension and the back of the washer cabinet. The metal screw pulls the washer suspension against the plastic cylinder which, in turn, is pulled against the rear cabinet, thereby securing the suspension against the back of the cabinet. The Whirlpool part number is 285955. These bolts can be ordered from various suppliers for $20 - $30. To install these bolts, you will need a 13 mm wrench and a flashlight so you can see where the bolts screw into on the washer suspension.
The procedure is as follows: 1. On the back of the washer, remove the 4 plastic covers over the oblong shipping bolt holes. Carefully pack these covers with the water and drain hoses as they will be needed when the washer is re-installed in its new location. 2. Using the flashlight as a visual aid, look inside the oblong holes and identify the area on the washer suspension into which the shipping bolts screw. It is a white plastic part that is not directly behind the the shipping bolt holes, but is slightly above that level. 3.Look at the shipping bolts. The bolts described above (Part number 285955) have a a plastic arm at one end . This arm must be sawed-off for installation on older machines. You will have to determine whether or not the arm needs to be removed. 4. Starting with the bottom two holes, carefully slide a shipping bolt through the hole toward the front of the machine. Angle the bolt upward toward the screw mating hole, and carefully guide the bolt into the hole. Use the 13 mm wrench to engage the bolt into the mating hole. 5. Make sure that the plastic end of the bolt is closely seated against the back of the washer cabinet. Using the 13 mm wrench, screw in the lower two bolts, but do not tighten at this time. 6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the upper two shipping bolts. 7. After the plastic part of all 4 bolts has been firmly seated against the back of the washer cabinet, carefully tighten all 4 bolts. 8. Go to the front of the washer and push on the drum. The drum will rotate but it should not rock. If that is the case, then you are done.
there should be i think 3 holes in the back of the washer and u need i believe the orange shipping bolts and they screw into the back to hold the drum in place because if u move without the u have a very good chance of breaking the shocks which there are 4 and they are about 30 dollars each plus the price of labor of installing new ones and there not very easy to get to.
