Do these units need shipping bolts for shipping? Duet washer and dryer.
Answer Charles, the washer does and uses shipping bolt kit part number W10289554A. The dryer does not require shipping bolts however, you'll need to transport the unit upright with the door taped closed and a large comforter on the inside to help stabilize the drum during transportation. Thanks.
Which shipping bolt kit do I need for Maytag Washer MAH8700AWW? Do I also need one for Maytag Dryer MDG9700AWW? Cheryl
Answer Cheryl, the shipping bolt listed for the given washer model is part number 34001337. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued with no replacements available. If you are not traveling too far, you can place a large comforter on the inside of the washer, take the back panel off and pack around the tub with a large comforter as well and tape the door shut, and transport the washer upright. For the dryer you'll just need to place a large comforter on the inside of the drum and tape the door shut, transport upright. Hope this helps you, thanks!
