Washer Winterizing?

It was 8 degrees this morning, and forecast to be -11 Saturday night. I just turned my furnace off (thought I'd get one more trip in), and tried to winterize my Palazzo 33.2. I read the washer manual, which said I needed to add a pint of antifreeze to the drum and run a "drain and spin" cycle; but I then needed to turn off the water and disconnect the hoses. Well, I can't even see, much less disconnect my hoses without completely uninstalling my washer and dryer. So - do most folks do this, or not bother? I haven't run a load yet, though I expect Thor ran a test after installation; so I don't even know how much water remains in the hoses. I would appreciate any insight... Thanks!

when i blow out my water system i pressurize the system to 40 psi and run a 15 minute wash cycle, that will blow out the lines and clean the valves. i then put 2 cups of antifreeze in the drum and run a drain/spin cycle. that takes care of it all.

That's what I thought... Thanks for the response! Hope it's not too late to heat things up inside and run some antifreeze through it.
