need mounting hole locations and thread size on the bottom of the washer 79640318900 and 79680318900


Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

There wasn't much detail in regards to exactly what you were looking for the thread size and location of. I presume you were referring to the leveling legs for the base of the washer. 

Unfortunately, it doesn't appear the manufacturer of this washer has released the specifications for the thread size for the leveling legs. It may be considered proprietary. The mounting hole locations will be at each corner of the washer. Sometimes it helps to tilt the washer back when installing the legs to line them up with the mount holes. The leveling legs are still available, and the part number is AFC72755401.

I hope this helps and thanks for using We appreciate your business.
