yes, double check the switch first. it sounds like the motor is not even moving, since the dryer was never used before sometimes there is a "tab" or locking mechanism to keep the tumbler form moving during shipping.

Where are the shipping pins on a centennial 300


The installation instructions are here:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Installation%20Instructions%20-%20W10200890.pdf

From looking on pages 4 - 8 of the manual there are no shipping pins. There are 20 steps to the installation procedures and none of them include the removeal of any shipping pins.

However... that being said if there are any shipping bolts it is usually ONE bolt in the back of the machine near the bottom of the tub carriage on SOME machines. It does not appear that this particular washer has one.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My Frigidaire Affinity dryer has started vibrating more and more during operation. Is the motor going bad or is there another problem?


Hi

Try the following to reduce the noise--

Washer is not resting firmly on floor. Move washer so it rests firmly on floor. Adjust leveling legs. NOTE: Some shaking of the washer is normal without moving across the floor.
• Shipping bolts and foam blocks have not been removed during installation. Check out the installation instructions for removing shipping bolts and foam blocks.
• Wash load unevenly distributed in drum. Stop washer and rearrange wash load.

Please post back for any further assistance.

I have an kenmore automatic washer and a couple day ago a noise came from the spinner when it was finished spinning.I looked up under the washer and founed two spare pins connected to the fram.I was...


Whirlpool / Kenmore washers come with shipping pins designed to keep the tub from moving during shipping.

When the washer is installed, the pins are broken off and usually fall into plastic containers.

It's possible that the pins that you see are these.

In addition,

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

If what fell out aren't the shipping pins, the diagrams on the Sears site may help you determine what they are.

Does a Maytag Neptune MAH6500WH have retaining bolts or pins that need to be installed before it can be moved?


If you are moving the washer for a long distance move, it is recommended that the shipping bolts be reinstalled to help prevent damage to the drum and suspension mechanism. This would be especially important if you're using a professional moving company, as they won't be able to move/load/unload it without problems.

If the move is relatively short and won't experience alot of aggressive movement, you can likely move the washer without chance of damage - provided you are careful and don't bounce the washer around.

Here's the info from the Maytag website, regarding moving front loading appliances:

If you are moving to a new home and plan to take your front-load washer and dryer pair with you, please call 800-688-9900, and speak to a fabric care expert. Our expert can recommend a Maytag-authorized servicer who will reinstall new shipping bolts to your washer.


New shipping bolts must be reinstalled to avoid internal suspension and structural damage to your washer during transport.

OK, so get your model number handy and give them a call, (you're missing some digits/alphas) you can get an online copy of your owner's manual that will show you the part numbers for the shipping bolts, if you've misplaced them, or give a call to the toll free number for Maytag, and they'll provide you with the part numbers needed so you can order them yourself and likely save some money versus having a service tech some out and do it for you/

1 (800) 344-1274 U.S.
1 (800) 688-2002 Canada
Hope you find this very helpful and best regards!

Odd sound after installation of gas dryer


Romove the '' Transportation Pins'' they are there to prevnt damage to the drum when the machine is being transported. If in doubt, call a CORGI registered gas engineer , not a DIY neighbour to check it out for gas safetyness. Do not take chances with gas for the sake of trying to save a bob or three.

Washer is shaking violently when it is time for the spin cycle


Check to see if all shipping blocks and bolts were removed. Refer to installation and setup instructions for your model.

I once moved into an apartment furnished with washer and dryer. The washer had worn holes in the vinyl flooring and a neighbor said the previous tenant made her son sit on the washer to hold it down. I investigated and found the shipping bolts were still in place. The tub, which is supposed to be able to swing, was rigidly held in place, so the entire machine danced around the room!

Moving a Kenmore front loading washer


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.
