Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

The white westinghouse heavy duty washer and dry were installed as separate units. I have removed the top of the washer and placed the galvanized metal sheet into place. Does the dryer just sit freely on the washer top or is there some way of actually attaching it to the underlying unit. The manual was not provided. Please help. In need of stacking, Seattle

    I cannot believe they came up with such a lame system. How do you take the front off the dryer? Is the attachment solution visibly obvious once the dryer front is removed?



    As to back mounted/installed L-brackets: Do you just drill through the back of both machines or are there actual places for the bnrackets to attach?



    Please remember that this is an older pair (1994/1995), heavy duty models.



    Initially you stated that most people use the legs of the dryer for attachment. I assume they slip into slots on the open top of the washer. I mistakenly attached a galvanized cover, provided with the machine, between the two units. I was told by the delivery people years ago that I would need that part. It doesn't seem to do anything but get in the way.



    Please respond as soon as you can. This little dilemma is holding up the rest of the laundry room makeover and making me very nervous. Thank you.

Most west stack units use the front feet to mount them . but in all cased some use a el bracket in the back side to keep it from moving . because it will fall off if not screwed to each other . if you remove the front of dryer it's east to mount the dryer to the top of washer . ,, or just use a el braket / 2 on the back side.. mm hopt this hepls feed back pls .

    the galvanized metal ? the only piece that i remember is the one that goes on the top of dryer . / there are different models of westhouse stack ( the g e style / bendix style / kenmore style/ ect / with your model # you can order the mounting kit for you machine from sears parts .com and you might be able to see the parts on there web . but most use genreal parts avilab from - like home depot or lowes hardware .. some model will not use the legs and only screws . . the only reason to take front off is so you can mount it with out seening the screws from the out side . . some installations have used a shelf above the washer and the dryer sits on it . / from a service point of view this is great . as if the washer needs service you only have to move the one unit . also if the washer or dryer needs replace ment you can do one instead of both units .. hope this helps mm

Westinghouse heavy duty washer


Check this website out. It has a good questions and answers section. I would guess that it is the water inlet valve in the washer, but it could be a few different things.

I know of a different site that has good prices on parts. I have ordered from them numerous times. Let me know if you need that link.
