I have an opportunity to buy a used SQ washer (AWN432SP) and SQ dryer (ADG3LRGS). Based on the serial numbers, both were made in November 2014. It appears that this SQ washer model does not have shipping bolts to stabilize the tub during transport. I'm looking for suggestions on how to stabilize the tub for a transport of about 25 miles.

I usually lay them on their front....

if you need to , open it up and add some 'noodles' to stabilize the mechanics....

Thanks Yogitunes, good idea to use the noodles! What is the advantage of laying the washer on the front? Is it to keep the washer lid down?

If youíre not laying it down thereís no Need to do anything just handle it carefully, if you are going to lay it on its front or side take the front off as Martin suggested and put some padding under the side on the side of the tub that youíre laying it on an old blanket would work fine etc. throw rug
