hello,

Are these units where the dryer is stack on top of the washer?

If they are, all you have to do is remove the duct hose of the dryer if it has one. Unplug the unit. Then if it is being hold by a stacking kit, unscrew the screw holding the dryer at the back. There should be two screws at the lower bottom of the dryer.
After this was unscrewed, you can lift the dryer now.

Then on the washer, remove the inlet hose form the water tap, remove the drain line, un plug the unit, Then transfer the washer to the basement.

Do the reverse on assembling the washer and dryer.

Sorry to take so long Chas and I was given mis-information. Its a stackable frigidare and the only model number I find on it is FLSE 72GCSA..I looked all over the washer inside and out and didnt find one on it..Hope this is enough info to help me taking them apart and relocating them..thanks so much..Mike
Expert:  Chas replied 5 years ago.
You do know this is not a stackable washer and dryer it is called a STACKED set, they come to you already assembled, they are not designed to be taken apart. every repair done on this model is done without taking the top off the bottom.....I have no idea how you are going to be able to do this, Are you trying to take it apart because you think it has to? Or is this because of space limitations...?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Im trying to take it apart due to space limitations to get it down into a basement. Once its down there it will have plenty of space after being re-assembled.

HiCustomer

This unit was not designed to be disassembled by a consumer.

In fact, the unit is generally never disassembled by a repair technician either.

The amount of labor and skill to re-assemble this would make the task that you are explaining an unreasonable undertaking.

Even a skilled technician would not want to do this.

Please let me know if you would like more information and/or clarification.
