I dont' have a Tradewinds but on my Dolphin there are two clips at the bottom front of the washer/dryer that hold it in place . The water cut offs are behind the washer/dryer .

Washer dryer

The shut off valves are conveniently located in the rear of the bottom drawers. Take all the drawers out to work on them or you will need to work by feel.
At this point I relocated them to the rear wall on the left side of the washer/dryer so I can reach them for winterizing and maintenance.
Don't remove the unit if possible. I used a lever bar and some blocks to raise it up to work under it. The I made two blocks of wood with holes that fit the feet so it can't slide a round while driving
I also cut the lip on the bottom of the cabinet and added a piano hinge to make a door so I can slide the washer dryer out if necessary. Ill see if I can post some photos

Good day, tom and deb. Thanks for reply about laundry faucets. Please clarify ‘bottom drawers’. My tradewinds laundry cabinet has no drawers.

Hi Tom, Deb.
My 03 tradewinds laundry machine is on the floor.
I will take a peak behind the 3 drawers on the bedroom side of the adjacent wall.
Cheers
Gary
