Hiya,
Copy and paste the following into a new browser window.

http://www.4whirlpool.co.uk/transit-bolt-awm219221/product.pl?pid=536609&query=transit+bolts

Please call them to check on this as your 85 number isn't listed.
The model number is ***** not the 85.

Let me know how you get on.
I do have other sources.

Thanks

Hi I have tried both of the spares suppliers on the site you recomend and neither of them can supply the bolts and the number is ***** 859234715008

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

The only bolts i can find are 859234715000 & *********** /p>

Hiya,
The 85 number is ***** it's just not shown for the bolts, the model number is, the 85 isn't.

Sorry, if they say the bolts don't fit, I'm afraid the only one that might have them would be www.espares.co.uk

Good luck with it, let me know how you get on.

Thanks

Hi espares were the first people I tried and they cannot supply either, If all the numbers are valid then why can the bolts not exist does not make sense to me I know that the plastic sleeve need to be 66mm long from the back of the casing to the outer drum but cannot find anywhere that gives dimensions

Hiya,
OK, it's a bit of a mystery why it's available for only certain 85 numbers.

I take it you are moving house and want to transport the machine.

There is an alternative you can use.
The transit bolts simply hold the drum steady while the machine is being moved.
If you take the top off (unplugged of course) you can wedge the drum using blankets or polystyrene blocks.

The spacer that the screw goes through has the part number .481253268151
When I search for this, it's listed at www.4whirlpool.co.uk and at www.espares.co.uk

If you need the exploded view diagram, I can upload it and you'll see the spacer is at position 9610 on the diagram.

Thanks

Hiya,
I can't email it to you but if you copy and paste the following into a new browser window, it will download from mediafire.

9610 is on the left of the page, halfway up the rear of the machine.

Hope it helps
Thanks
