All about those elusive shipping bolts that come with LG front loading washers

Samurai Appliance Repair Man


Master Reg explains the in's and out's of shipping bolts used with LG washing machines:

... the washer was transported without any bolts to secure the tub...

from the WM2487HWM Owners Manual:

The appliance is fitted with shipping bolts to prevent internal damage during transportation.

Packing and all shipping bolts must be removed before using the washer.

Take out the 4 bolts and braces by twisting the braces slightly.

Keep the 4 bolts, braces and the wrench for future use.

• Whenever the appliance is transported, the shipping bolts and braces must be reinstalled.
