Washer dryer won't stay put.

I have a Whirlpool stacked W&D that keeps walking forward to the point it can't be run because it's wedged against the front panel and I'm afraid it will break it.
Fleetwood service wedged it tight on the top but it walked forward anyway.
Has anyone tried screwing the washer down to the plywood base? Will it just tear the lags loose?
Or what about wood blocks on 4 sides to let it vibrate but not move around.
Either fix is going to a job since I can't push the unit back with out pulling the front cabinet face off which is a major pain.

Thanks

My stacked W/D are screwed to the floor. Can't imagine yours shouldn't be done the same.

Don't know the specifics of how they were installed in your coach, but can you screw down a wooden spacer in front of the stack to keep the base from sliding forward when you put on the brakes? You can make it as thick or thin as you need.

On my DP the W/D is above the rear wheels, smoothest riding place in rear of coach. It is not screwed to the floor. But the board at the top is very hard to move.
Add a spacer for the board, add brackets at the bottom.
Set W/D on softer or friction mat'l to cushion.

First, check the adjustable feet. They may not be way out, but they're out of adjustment at least enough to let it vibrate and walk. Next, screw a cleat to the floor on the side of the machine toward which it walks. Before fastening, glue some scrap I/o carpet or felt padding to three sides of the cleat. Screw the bare wood side to the floor. This will prevent the cleat from damaging the washer.
