Remove the cardboard box around the washing machine. There is a line around the bottom of the box that indicates where to cut with the utility knife. Cut the box with the knife and pull the box off the washer.
Turn the washing machine around so you have full access to the back of the unit. Find the four packing bolt heads. The heads protrude from the washer slightly and have plastic spacers.
Turn the packing bolt heads counterclockwise with a socket wrench. Remove each bolt completely away from the washer.
Snap the plastic covers over the holes where the bolts were, if your machine comes with covers. Some covers attach to the machine with a small plastic tab, while some manufacturers pack the covers inside the hardware bag. Keep the packing bolts in a safe place for reinstallation when you move the washing machine.
