Washer/dryer dealer install

We had a washer/dryer installed in the closet of our 2016 NorthPoint 377RLBH. We recently had to remove the washer to repair. That was the first time I saw behind the washer/dryer. The bottom 2/3 of the rear panel was removed and not replaced during the install. I didn't see a reason for it. I was able to see the fiberglass insulation behind the front cap.

My question is has anyone had a dealer install their appliances and how did they do it? I'm not sure why our dealer installed it like that. Am I missing something?

We had our dealer installed but I haven't looked behind them, I'll be home in a few days and look at ours and let you know.

I recommend you call the dealer first thing in the morning and make sure they didn't toss the panel in the trash. I'd hate to hear them say, "oh geez , our trash was just picked up an hour ago"

I installed a WD in my 377 and I didn't remove the back panel. Not sure why they did.

I agree with Tom. I also installed my washer and dryer and did not have to remove any panel behind either.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you, I checked behind the washer and dryer and found paneling, top to bottom. The dealer also gave me all of the shelving, paneling, whatever they removed in case I ever want to reinstall it.

Thanks for letting me know. Sounds like your dealer knew what they were doing. My dealer discarded the shelves and removed 2/3 of closet. Already have an appointment for a new panel and now they ordered me new shelves.

Question How much trouble to install w/d

How bad was it installing the w/d yourself.? I have a Seismic 4212, the w/d is in a closet in the bedroom, and was told it was a 3 hour labor charge at the dealer due to entry door, bedroom door, and closet doors having to be removed. The dealer also said that they would have to cut a portion of the panel in the rear of the closet during the install. At $100./hr I would like to do it myself.

I would say the hard part will be getting it in through the doors/passageways.

How comfortable are you at moving that much weight in those small spaces?

Installation itself, if your trailer has the prep, should be simple. The duct work should be in place, or just need a hole cut for it. Plumbing may need a valve installed and anchored. 110V outlet should already be in place.
