Moving appliances

Prepare and disconnect washers, dryers, and refrigerators for moving

Washers, dryers, and refrigerators are often brought onto a truck during the early to middle portion of the loading process. Each requires special preparation. When moving your refrigerator take away all glass and wire shelves and wraps them with blanket or cardboard. Remove plastic crisper drawers or fill them with soft items. This may be best done after the refrigerator is in the truck.

Most washes and dryers have a raised console at the rear that contains the dials. Protect the dials by taping piece of cardboard over them. A washing machine is heavier than a dryer, but can usually be carried by two hefty workers or transported on an appliance dolly. Place all the hoses in the machine, along with some blankets, rags, or other soft items.

To ensure against damaging the gas flex line during a long-distance move, use pliers to disconnect it from the machine. Where the vent pipe enters an electric or gas dryer, remove any duct tape, unscrew the sheet metal screws, and pull the pipe out.
