Maytag neptune washer Model #MAH5500B Serial #7390674ZQ Need instructions on how to attach shipping bolt for moving out of state


The installation instructions are here:
http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/15271/MAYTAG-Residential-Washers-L0503006

The used plastic shupping straps to hold the tub in place for shipping.... not bolts. Once removed without tearing the machine apart you can not re-install them. You can safely move this machine as long as you do not tip it excessively or drop it even a few inches. Just treat it very gingerly or post move you could have have an imbalance problem post move where the machine starts to spin then reverses direction several times but never comes up to full spin speed. Leave all the hoses connected to the washer and disconnect it from the wall only. Make sure you do NOT ship the machine loaded with anything inside. People often think an empty washer is unsed space..... wrong answer on a front loading machine. If your horribly concerned about the tub moving make a padded wooden block jig that has a rear pad that touches the back of the tub at the bottom and 3 pads that are flush when the door is closed. As a servicer I made my own long ago but rarely use if ever it.

May your move go well and thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly.

Do i need to put in shipping bolts to move my washer 600 miles and if so where do they go and what size bolt do i need?


The shipping bolts protect the washer tub from getting bounced around when the washer is moved. The shipping kit should have come with your washer when you purchased it. If you have misplaced it, you can find it here http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-GLTF2940ES-%3d%3di1170681&PartID=1170681
Hope this helps you.

My LG front load washer bounces and is really loud during the spin cycle. I've tried balancing it in all directions and recently put a thick rubber, non-slip mat underneath but now it's moved the mat!


make sure all the shipping bolts are taken off and if they are you probably arent totally level but it sounds like the shipping bolts are still on there and that wont let the dryer level like its supposed to the bolts are usually on the bottom and usually have a tag saying remove after shipping

Lost or not retained shipping bolts


Just looked at mine (we had to order them before the military would move ours). They are two different sizes, have a long plastic washer (lengthwise), and are - believe it or not - like a lag bolt on the end! A hybrid mess meant to force us to order them, if you ask me. Not sure you should try rigging it, best if you order them, you'll see what I mean when you get them. Sorry, we were in the same boat too. Wish I never bought this LG, but that's for another post.

Move


you can reuse the shhipping bolts but getting them back in is a royal pain in the but. if you have help you can have someone open the door to move the tub around so you can line up the shipping bolts to screw them back in. it help to take the top off the washer to help you see where your putting them.
