If its a front loader you may damage the suspension or break somthing else inside,you can fit transit bolts to them.if its a top loader you can lay it down just take care.but it is better to stand all machines upright if possible.

Get a lot of vibration on the high spin cycle. Looks like I need to replace the bearings. Can you replace just the bearings? I saw the whole drum can be replaced.

It depends on the make and model of the machine you have. Some drums are bolted together with a front and a back half that split apart. some are heat sealed at the point of manufacture and can't be split. If you take the top off your machine, it should be pretty cleat if the 2 halves are bolted together (You will see bolts). Just be aware that for the noviice, this is a nightmare job. Not only do you have to get the drum out, you then have to knock out the old bearings with ppopriatly sized drifts, without damaging the seats they sit in. THEN you have to get the new ones in without doing any damage to the bearings ot the seats, then you have to get the seal between the 2 halves to seal without any leaks. I recondition machines for a living and I avoid bearing swaps like the plague. I would seriously consider consigning the machine to the scrapheap, rather than doing it yourself!

Where are the travelling bolts found in the front loaders

They will be in the rear of the chassis one either side, about an inch from the side and almost exactly half way up. Typically they will have a 10mm head and be set in a plastic cup

My daughter in law's machine won't pick up the bobbin thread. I've never even seen a bobbin that loads like that so I don't know what to tell her. In fact, I've never even heard of a new home sewing...

New Home is Janome.

The bobbin thread may not be picking up because the needle is in backwards.

Refer to the manual for the machine - some require the flat side of the needle face to the back of the machine and some to the left side of the machine.

Engine started dying after serpentine belt replaced. Had mechanic check codes, none showed up. After picking up the car, drove 5 miles, engine died again frequently on way back to machanic. He drove and...

If I remember correctly, the serpentine belt change on this motor can be quite involved. It may require the battery being disconnected to avoid shorting out cables. Check for loose battery cables especially on the negative side where it is secured to the engine block.
