Remove Transit Safety Bolts

The clothes washer is fitted with transit safety bolts at the rear to avoid possible damage to the interior during transportation.


The transit bolts MUST be removed prior to operation of the machine. Failure to remove these will result in damage to the machine.

To remove the bolts

  1. Use a spanner or socket to unscrew and remove all four transit bolts at the back of the washer (A).

  2. Pull the black rubber grommets to remove the bolt, grommet and white plastic spacers from the machine. Retain these for future use.

  3. Cover the bolt holes with white plastic plugs (B). Push to clip into place.
