What gets damaged when you move a washer without the bolts in place?

It was moved quite a long distance in a bumpy semi trailer, so I'm sure something is damaged.
Before I hook up the unit I want to take it apart and inspect the washer to see if it's damaged, or
wrecked.

:oops:

It's probably ok. Remove the back cover and make sure the shock absorbers are in place. Remove the top cover and make sure the left and right springs are holding up the tub.

Thanks, I pulled the back cover and top lid. Both the springs and shock absorbers are intact. I powered it up and did a spin-only cycle and it appears to be working properly. I did notice that a vent tube behind the detergent dispenser was broken, but I was able to glue it together for a full repair.

:cheers:
