    Hey - we had the same issue, so thanks this helped a lot. Now, how do we attach the pedestal? We bought 2 pedestal floor models, and there were no instructions. We think the black plastic legs unscrew complelety off, and use 4 small screws - but which holes?

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

If you ever get the drawer stuck closed...<I just did this> bend a wire clothes hanger and fish around for object that obstructed you to open it. Mine was a swiffer handle. There is a little lip underneath the washer and dryer ( in my model) for it to get hocked on.
Here is my blonde moment for the day..

Drawer catch broken


Hello David, I am JK. I understand that you are having trouble with the drawer staying closed on your pedestal. I would recommend checking to make certain that nothing is caught under the pedestal keeping the drawer from closing properly. If this is not the concern, the strike and/or latch might need to be replaced.
Hope this helps!

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.

  5. Remove the pedestal to the engine mounting bolts.
  6. While manipulating the sensor within the pedestal, carefully remove the sensor and pedestal as a unit. To install:

Installing pedestal to washer


You want to level just the pedestal in the place where you will be using it so when you put it in position mounted together later it is done. Also very easy to do first. Get the pedestal level, tighten the lock nuts, put the washer on its back. Usually you remove the washer feet, take the pedestal drawer out, screw on each side, bolt the pedestal to the washer with the four screws provided. Tip pedestal and washer up, on to something that slides easily to protect floor. There usually are some type of shipping bolts that have to be removed from back of washer before using on new units. Usually four and these have to be removed.

How do we install the pedestal to the front load Kenmore washer


The pedestals bolt into the bottom of the washer where the legs where.

This is definatly a heavy job, so it's best to get 2 more people to help you out.

#1 Remove all 4 legs that came on the washer factory.

#2 Make sure you have enough room to manouver the machines. The washer is going to be the most difficult so start with it.

#3 Have your friends tilt the machine back and you slide the pedestal under the machine.

#4 Kneel down infront of the machine to prevent it from sliding forward.

#5 Have your friends lift up the back of the machine and walk it forward until the holes in the top of the pedestal are in line wiht the holes from where the legs where.

#6 Thread in the bolts and tighten.

**You will need to take out the drawer of the pedestal to get the back bolts in. There are plastic clips on the inside of the runners, just push those down at hte same time and pull the drawer**

Good luck! Please let me know if this was helpful!
