i found in the back of my washing machine on the floor what looks a lot like the shipping bolt pictured (#AP4344743) and was wondering where did it come from on machine. i imagine i need to replace it too. am currently looking to replace belt and possibly pulley.
ANSWER Frank, The shipping bolts have to be removed when the washer is installed, Don't try and reinstall the bolt, at least until you move to another location. They're installed at the factory for shipping purposes only. The drive belt for your model number is WH08X10024 and the drive pulley kit is WH07X10016 . Remove the four screws holding the panel to the rear of the cabinet to access the belt and pulley, just remember the belt will be a bit difficult to install, it may seem to be too small, but it's not.
