Does anyone have LG pedestal model WDP4R installation instructions for my new LG washer (WM2350HRC) and dryer (DLG2351R)?

Ok - one more question please.

In reading through this installation manual, it appears that I can lay the washer and dryer on their backs and install the pedestals that way. Or am I not reading it correctly?

*sigh* Damn. Ok. I think I'm going to have to hire someone to install these for me. I don't want it done wrong and with the gas dryer and all, I'd rather pay a professional. Now.... to find an appropriate professional. :-)

If you lay the machines over BEFORE you remove the shipping materials you should be safe

So to be sure I'm understanding, I can remove the outer cardboard box but leave the washer and dryer in the styrofoam shipping thingies and then I can lay them down and install the pedestals?

And does anyone know of a good LG appliance installer in the So King county area of Puget Sound (so of Seattle)?

Ok - so I'm really hoping these brand new units come with an installation manual. I'm assuming those are inside or underneath the machine somewhere to protect the innards from being bounced around while shipping, right?

(3) Shipping Bolts on back of Washer, but none used on Dryer
But I don't understand why it's OK to lay the Washer on it's back to UN-install the pedestals (per LDP4 manual)
Evidently no harm in just laying Washer on it's back without the Shipping Bolts.
I think it may have something to do with aligning the Washer & Pedestals during installation.

The "uninstall" instructions for the pedestals in the manual appear to require dismantling of the pedestal itself - which I'm finding a little difficult to understand.

The pedestals I bought were attached to a washer and dryer just a day prior to my buying them - unattached but completely assembled/intact.

:kopkrab:

My challenge is I have no one here to help me so am pretty much going to have to hire some able bodied individuals to help me to this. Given that, I might as well hire a professional to do the whole job.

:yes:

Anyone with an idea how to find someone to do that? craigslist, maybe? What do I look for? Appliance repair? Plumber? Electrician? not quite sure how to search for a professional installer for these units once they get here so I would very much appreciate your help - as always.

not craig's list for anything ...
are there any neighbors that could help you lift it,
or should be able to just lay it on it's back carefully
