Hey guys.

 

I need to store a washing machine + fridge inside and have never done so.

 

Reading online it seems easy enough, however what im reading is all american websites. Im sure its basically the same, but yeah.

 

So does anybody have any information/hints/tips?

 

 

 

From what I've read its basically try not to tilt them, turn them off for a certain period of time before hand.

 

Planning to store them inside, which might mean they have to go on carpet, not entirely sure.

 

 

 

Thanks for all the info :)

If on carpet, put some plastic sheeting down. Make sure you leave the fridge door open. Nothing worse than opening a fridge that's been sitting around for ages. yell

Thanks for that. I guess I was going to put something under the fridge if it goes on carpet, but didn't really think about it until you mentioned it.

 

 

 

Anybody else? :)

Definitely allow to cover them with a drop cloth or somesuch, but also ensure the doors are left ajar to ensure any smells don't build up.

 

The washing machine should be emptied of water in the pipes, and the fridge dried and fully cleaned. You *could* run a hot wash through the washing machine with a litre of vinegar to remove build up if you felt like you wanted to be extra careful. 

 

How long are you storing them for?

Thanks for the info. I read those tips as well.

 

Potentially 1 year...
