Winterizing Palazzo with clothes washer

Getting a little ahead of myself here, but thought I would get other owners ideas on what technique(s) they use to winterize the plumbing associated with the clothes washer, including the washer itself. I'm thinking there must be residual water left in the internal piping of the washer that might be subject to freezing damage. TIA,

Norb

There should be a panel near the bottom on the front that pivots. Behind that the is a cap to unscrew. I believe this will release any water in the machine but then you might have to worry about getting the antifreeze down the drain which could be quite a challenge.

I think I'll just run a cycle with the pink stuff in the water tank this year.

I don't take any chance. I run a cycle with the pink antifreeze. Antifreeze $4 a gallon. Cheap insurance.

We plan on driving the car back up for the holidays and we will see how Grandma will do without seeing the Grands for such a long time
