If you have the original shipping bolts which came with the washer that would be best of course ,but if you don't , just make sure the washer is never laid on it's side or front or back. the primary reason the factory uses them is because when they are transported by tuck around the country they are frequently laid on their side - maybe on top of another washer or refrigerator or whatever > Trucks are computer loaded to get the max amount of product into a small space . So as long as you are keeping it somewhat upright you'll be fine. Thanks for using justanswer.

In the back of the washer there are holes that the bolts go through and engage into the machine to hold it stiff.
