To avoid possible damage to the washer, the transport bolts on
the back of the washer must be in place before installing the
pedestal. For more information on transport bolts, see "Remove
Transport System" in washer Use and Care Guide.
note: If the washer is to be transported, call your local
service center. To avoid suspension and structural damage,
your washer must be properly set up for relocation by a certified
technician.
1. Turn off the hot and cold water faucets.
2. Unplug the power supply cord.
3. Slowly loosen the fill hoses at the faucets to relieve the water
pressure. Use a sponge or towel to absorb the released water.
4. Remove the "HOT" and "COLD" fill hoses from the back of the
washer. Drain the water from the hoses into a bucket.
5. Remove the drain hose from the standpipe or laundry tub
and drain any water remaining in the hose into a bucket.
6. Pull the washer away from the wall so it can be tipped on its
back.
7. To avoid floor damage and ease installation and handling,
unfold the empty pedestal box flat and place it next to the
washer. Lay the washer on its back (make sure that the power
supply cord is not under the washer) so that the cardboard is
under the entire lower back edge of the washer.

washer when it is tipped back. Go to "Installing the Pedestal".
