Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
You could cheat a bit and try the following for the information!
Spares Suppliers
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer spares' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can order. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number.
Good luck,

How to lock drum for moving


all machines come with installed Transit bolts, these are removed before the machine is used, and should be kept in case you need to move the machine later on. The transit bolts lock the drum to prevent movement whilst moving the machine. If you do not have these, I would suggest looking for some. However I have moved a machine without the bolts in and as long as you are reasonably careful there should be no problems.

The screw to used to move the frog to adjust the throat is missing. Can I get a replacement? Is there another part of the adjustment assembly missing?


Auctions and search engines.
Some plane Mfgs. had custom threads made. Modern bolts and screws from the hardware store may not work. Take the plane to a genuine hardware store where someone will help.
There are typically 2 slotted machine screws that secure a frog to the plane.
The plane will work fine without the slotted frog adjustment screw near the brass thumb wheel.
Really old metal planes had no frog adjustment screws.
The new frog adjustment feature did boost sales though.
If the threaded bolt for the brass thumb wheel is missing it will need to be replaced so the cutter can be easily adjusted.

We are moving our washer to another state. How do I drain the water? Are there any specific instructions in moving and storing it?


Yes, buy shipping bolts and have them installed to secure the outer drum. This is very important. Do not let it freeze. If it will be in freezing temperatures call a local repairman and have him get rid of any standing water in the outer tub and internal valves. Hope this helps,

Shipping bolts were not left when machine set up. moving from virginia to Arizona. Where can I buy replacement shipping bolts


If you can remove the top cover, then all you need to do fit some polystyrene packing or the like inside the cabinet to stop the drum from moving about, and this should do the trick.

My brandt washing machine(model wtc0633) vibrate seriously


Hi Steven. You maching is a top load type and it sounds like the leveling legs under you machine are no longer adjust properly. This can occur from moving the unit or just over time from normal use. You can verify this by pressing down individually (one at a time) on the 4 corners of the top of you unit. If it rocks when you press down or push on the the corners then your leveling legs are out of adjustment. Adjust the legs under the unit until it no longer moves when you press on the corners and see if this solves your problem. If you need more help later then reply to this post.

I have a LG WM0532HW. What are the drum bolt sizes thr.& length


Hello Jeff,

Unfortunately, these are specially made bolts that have threads only on the first section of the bolt, so they can secure the wash drum and not interfere with anything else. You also need the special sleeves for the bolts. I would not try to use standard bolts from a hardware store, as they could damage the wash drum if you overtightened them or they were too long. LG, and most washer manufacturers, don't publish the size, thread count and length of their transport (shipping) bolts, hence the reason they advise to keep them for future use.

So if you're only moving the washer down a set of stairs, you should be fine if you take it easy and either hand carry it with two (2) people, or use an appliance truck to move it down the stairs.

If, however, you're looking to move the washer any distance via truck, etc., you'll want the shipping transport bolts and sleeves to keep the drum and suspension system from getting damaged.

You're best bet is to get in touch with LG customer support and obtain a set of the transport bolts. You can reach them by callling them from 8AM to 8 PM toll free at 1-877 714-7486 and follow the prompts to reach customer support.

Here's a link to the owner's manual for your washer, just in case you've misplaced yours.
