How to Remove the Storage Drawer From a Pedestal Whirlpool Duet

Whirlpool Duet washers and dryers have optional pedestal attachments, available in either a 10-inch or 15-inch size. These devices raise the height of the front-loading appliances to provide easier access. The 15-inch pedestal has a storage drawer that pulls out and pushes back into the pedestal, allowing you to keep items such as laundry detergent and dryer sheets out of sight. When installing or removing the pedestals, the drawers must be removed, and you may also wish to remove them for cleaning.

Step 1

Open the pedestal drawer to the fully open position. Remove any contents in the drawer.

Step 2

Remove the 1/4-inch hex nut located on the top of each drawer arm.

Step 3

Pull the drawer straight out, then push the arms back into the body of the pedestal.
