do not have that

ok with out a model number to be able to see what model washer you have .

I will say not it can not be laid on it`s side.

And the issue is not oils but if the mechanical of the washer are jarred loose .

if you open the dryer door the unit model number should be on the inner face frame then I can tell you 100% or not

It will not be laied on its side it will be on the dolly and laid on its abck

i am not mear the unit i am picking it up tonight from a private party

would no be different if laid on it`s side or it`s back if this is a front load washer you will damage the outer tub and suspension system.

if it is a top loader you would still dislodge the mechanicals inside the washer cabinet

yes that is what I would recommend ! upright only!
