    We had the same problem. Easy fix. We called the store where we bought the pair and the salesman was very helpful. He said in transit/delivery the boxes can be tipped and the instructions sometimes fall at the back of the drawer. Remove the bolts on the side of the drawer(on the metal bracket) and slide the drawer out. There will be a bag sitting there with instructions and bolts for attaching the pedestal.

How do you install whirlpool duet pedestal


Make sure that you get the pedestal designed for your washer. The white pedestal for the GHW9400P would be LAB2700MQ. (There are slight differences in the pedestals for different series washers. The holes in the base of the washer will not line up with the holes in the pedestal for a mismatched combination.)

First if your washer has been installed, uninstall it. You need to turn off the water. Then disconnect the power cord and (carefully) the fill hoses. Loosen the hoses first and then completely remove them. Drain the hoses into a bucket. Disconnect the drain hose from the back of the washer. Use pliers to squeeze the clamp to get the drain hose loose.

Pull the washer away from the wall. Cover the area behind the washer with cardboard and tip the washer onto its back (on the cardboard).

Pull out the drawer of the pedestal. Next snap the spacers into the holes on the top of the pedestal. (These are part of the hardware kit in the drawer of the pedestal.) Remove the shipping spacers from the front of the pedestal (behind the drawer). Remove the Philips head screw from the drawer slides and pull the drawer completely out (save the screws). Push the slides back into the pedestal.

Look at the washer and remove the feet if present. Partially install two of the hex head screws from the pedestal installation kit in the bottom holes of the washer. (These are at the center back of the washer if it is standing up.) Leave the screws about 3/8" from the bottom of the washer. Move the pedestal over to the washer and slide the keyhole openings of the pedestal over the two partially installed screws. Position the pedestal against the top of the washer and insert the remaining two hex head screws. Do not tighten completely.

Align the pedestal with the base of the washer on all sides. When it is lined up, tighten the 4 screws by reaching through the drawer opening of the pedestal. Bring the washer and pedestal back upright. Reinstall the washer (remove the packaging if this was a new install). Level (front to back and side to side) the washer using the pedestal feet (again reach through the drawer opening). Make sure that all 4 feet touch the floor. Tighten all 4 locknuts.

Pull out the drawer slides and reinstall the drawer. Reinstall the Philips screws. Close the drawer.

For pictures of the install, go to the Whirlpool support site http://www.whirlpool.com/owner_center . Search for your pedestal and get the installation manual. The direct link for the LAB2700MQ0 install is http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Installation%20Instructions%20-%208537141.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Is samsung pedestal model number WE356A5W/XAA compatible with samsung front loader washer wf220anw?


The correct pedestal for the WF220ANW washer is WE357A7W . The WE356A5W is a slightly different size to secure it to the washer (14 2/5 X 27 X 28 7/10 In). The WE357A7W is 27"(W) x 14"(H) x 28.5"(D). The holes for the screws will also not quite line up.

I hope this helps.

Samsung pedestals


Howdy,

So we had a similar problem. I actually went to a Sears Outlet here in San Diego where a tech gave me the bolts for free! But......the pedestals are still not compatible. I think Samsung built this discrepancy on purpose, just as other manufacturers do, because it makes them money. No cutting corners and buying previous year's stuff at a discount. BTW, I did verify the incompatibility with Samsung...

Good luck!!

Samsung Pedestal Drawer


If you pull out the drawer (completely) you should find 1 or 2 screws on each side that bolts the slider to the drawer. Remove these, then lift out the drawer. This then gives you full access inside. ...JimS

Samsung WF 338 washer


Hello.

These are usually shipped with a number of "shipping bolts" to lock the drum in position during transit. If they are not removed when it is installed, then the washer will behave exactly as you describe. Check the manual or look for a sticker on the back or the washer showing which bolts to remove,
