Removing Stackable washer
 
Iím looking for tips about elevating the washer to get it out of its closet so I can work on it.
Itís sitting on the floor and has to go up and over the bottom of the cabinet front. I was thinking using blocks to build it up, but not sure how easy it will be to get it up for each block.
Thoughts?

I have a set of these I use on occasion: https://www.amazon.com/Rhino-Strong-...2143884&sr=8-5

May be just the ticket to do what you need. I would lift up with the air bag, then put on a wood block level with the front lip and you should be able to slide it over.

When I took my washer out, I removed the doors and the front off the cabinet. That let the washer slide right out. Have a look at your cabinet to see if this is possible.

The front lower lip on my washer cabinet was removable - three big screws down from the top.

I just removed my washer/dryer combo, very heavy 155 lbs, I was able to tilt front back and shimmy it onto front sill, from there place a couple 2x4's under main body and slide out.
I then took my floor jack to front of unit as I slid it out, when out lowered it onto a harbor freight small 4 wheel dolly and moved to front of coach, I'm 76 yrs old and with the help of DW we did it all.

I can't take credit for thinking of jack, after so years (57) of DW watching shop work she suggested floor jack, she's a keeper. :thumb:

Thanks for the ideas. My original inspection looked like the cabinet front doesnít come off.

The little lift bags may be exactly what I need to work it up and over.

Both washer and dryer have a bracket to the back wall.

Looks like they built the cabinet after installation of the units.

Look again bet there is a way to disassemble
Mine is like Gary's was..front lip has 3 screws and some silicone sealant and it can be removed
Going to do it soon to clean and inspect dryer vent

My 02 Exec has an inspection/service door in closet to access rear washer connections including dryer vent. You would think this access point would be on all units, how else would you be able to disconnect or replace hoses etc.
