LG Dryer Bracket WSTK1 Removal Instructions

Kenneth Crawford

When disassembling the LG dryer and washer stack, it is necessary to remove the stacking kit. The WSTK1 stacking kit consists of two side brackets and a decorative front rail bracket. The feet of the dryer fit into stoppers on the side brackets. This keeps the dryer secure while on top of the washer. Removing the LG dryer bracket WSTK1 kit does require a helper to assist removing the dryer from the top of the washer.

Step 1

Unplug the LG dryer power cord from the dryer receptacle. Loosen the clamp screw securing the dryer exhaust duct to the dryer with a Phillips-head screwdriver and pull the dryer duct away from the dryer.

Step 2

Remove the screw on each end of the front bracket rail with the screwdriver. The front rail connects to the two side rails at the front of the LG washer/dryer combo. Pull the front rail away from the dryer.

Step 3

Grab under one side of the LG dryer, while your helper grabs the opposite side. Push the LG dryer forward until the feet clear the bracket stoppers. Lift the dryer off the washer and set it on the floor. Be prepared for the weight of the dryer.

Step 4

Find and remove the screw securing each side bracket to the rear of the washer. Slide a plastic putty knife between the bottom corner of the bracket and the top of the washer while lifting up on the rear of the bracket with your fingers. The putty knife helps to release the adhesive while you lift up on the rear of the side bracket.

Step 5

Repeat the process of cutting through the adhesive at the front of the side bracket while lifting the front end of the bracket. Once both side brackets are off the top of the washer, clean the residual adhesive off with a rag dipped in soapy water.
