I just removed the drawers, you need to remove one each 1/4" head sheet metal screw from the end closest tot he drawer front. this will allow you to slide the drawers out and clean the mess undere both the dryer and the washer. repeat steps to reinstall. Takes about 2 min to remove both doors, Hint: a 1/4 socket works better than a wrench.

There are two ways this drawer is held in place;

  1. Open the drawer fully. Look at the rear of the support slide is there a small, black plastic lever? If so, on one side push the lever down, the other side pull the lever up. (sorry don't remember which side up or down)
  2. No lever? Remove the small screw on either side of the support slide at the front of the drawer. Lift the drawer and push support slide away from the drawer.
If you need further assistance, let me know

You need to remove the 2 screws holding the black rails on both sides of the drawer. Took us a while to figure this one out also.

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.

Whirlpool Duet frontloader washer's dispenser stays filled


I had a similar problem, but mine was with the detergent side. I removed the top of the washer and had to clean the dial that advances to let the cyle of dispensing continue. It worked, but now the machine shakes and I am told is 'unbalanced'

Washer is off balance. Need to get to levelers.


I had the same problem...thanks for posting a solution. I agree with the solution posted above, but on my unit they are 1/4" HEX head screws, not phillips. Look at the illustration on page 4 here for help:

Attach pedastal to whirpool duet washing machine front loader


you will want to lay the duet unit on its back. remove the legs. put the base up to the bottom of the duet. you can use the legs as bolts and pass them thru the top of the base back into the bottom of the duet appliance, using them as bolts. I have had some people just get new bolts. this should fix you up. please rate this if it was any help.
Thanks,
David

Remove pedestal drawer from washer


First remove the top of the washer via 3 tork, 7mm hex head screws (they are hidden located on rear of washer) then you can see to line up the tub with the shipping bolts. Just put 2 in --one lower and upper opposing each other and that will be sufficient. I believe there is two screws holding the drawer in located at the track towards the front of the drawer. Now you can lean it over with no worries to remove pedestal
