I can't recall what they used to be like as until a few weeks ago, I hadn't had a new one for around 20 years. It was very straight forward though.There used to be a metal 'immobilising bar' in washing machines which had to be removed before use. New machines have big bolts in the back for this purpose, as I recently discovered when ours arrived.
I'd normally install a washer myself but Techy insisted on having the plumber in. Plumber reckons that as the information about the bolts is a bit tucked away in the manual, people who don't read it all and just go ahead are in trouble. He's met some!
