While in the process of moving a washer and dryer, do the drums need to be stabilized? If yes, how?


When you are moving either a washer or a dryer you do it carefully.
Other than that, you don't need to stabilized the drum.

We are moving to a new house (just three miles). How critical are the transport instructions for the He2 Plus washer?


Hi,
The mount system is important to stabilize the tub during transport, if your careful you can move this without them. To prevent damage, you can remove the top, pack the unit with blankets to prevent banging around, and damage to control panel inside. Just be careful and this can be done without damage to the unit.
Good Luck

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.

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.

Hope you find this very helpful and best regards!

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 my washer & dryer


find the original shipping stuff the long plastic dowels can be reinserted and if i remember right there is a bolt or pin that goes back through them to hold them in place.. if all else fails you may try removing top and shoving thick quilts down sides and back between drum and cabinet ..remove bottom and put something under tub to prevent a lot of motion up and down on the shocks and springs ..hope this helps i'm in repair not delivery so i seldom see the shipping materials if its not a long move just careful handling may be enough

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.

Remove the bottom panel, it is held on by two screws, and make sure the foam block and shipping brackets are removed. My installer left them in.
