Prepare my 6.9 total cu.ft. FlexWash Washer (WV60M9900AV) for long-term storage or moving?

Last Update Date : May 10. 2018


Washers can be damaged if water is not removed from hoses and internal components before storing them. Water can freeze if the washer isn't stored in a climate controlled space. This will damage internal parts and result in operational failure. The moisture from residual water in the washer helps all of the hoses, valves, and other parts grow little fuzzy patches of mold and mildew. Though little fuzzy patches sound kind of cute, they're actually super gross and cause horrific odors. So it's very important to store the washer properly.
