We need to know more information about your coach. A picture or two would be good too!

One persons opinion:

I've pondered this myself and although I do not know "the method" this is what I believe I would do or try.

I think the bottom of the cabinet, the facia, is removable; if so I would remove it eliminating the small ledge in the cabinet which blocks smooth exit of the washer bottom. I have access through the top by removing the shelf bottom in the upper cabinet. I would loosen and remove all the water fittings etc I can through that opening.

Then I would try to get a strap around the washer and out each side so I could pull. I would put a furniture dolly in front and just pull, wiggle, prod, what ever and move the washer out onto the dolly.

I find I can move the washer side to side just enough to make small forward movements; just keep doing it until you have enough to get a better hold top, bottom sides anywhere,

Good luck---

Hi jackh,
While not rocket science, this is not an easy task. I've had my combo unit out 3 times until it actually decided to work correctly (sloppy manufacturing). There is no easy way to get it out. njs42 has the basic procedure. I'll add that if the washer is a combo unit (really heavy) and in the rear of the coach, you'll need 2 skinny guys. There just isn't any room to maneuver. Lastly, your going to spill water on the floor so be prepared.

Hi jackh, welcome to the forum. Once you get it out of the cabinet you're probably going to have to remove one of the large window up front to get it out of the coach. As Gary said, they're heavy so have some help.

I removed a Splendide 2000S and took it out through the coach entry door. It was tight, but it fit. Brought a new 2100XC in the same way
