When you purchase a new washer and dryer, it is a good idea to ask the installer to keep the washer/dryer locks. These locks prevent the drum from moving during transport. Otherwise, the moving parts in the appliance can be damaged. If you did not keep the locking metal pins/plastic tabs, then you can look for the part number in your appliance's owner's manual, see if the store you purchased the appliances from can provide you with some, or check out the helpful links below.

If you need a copy of your owner's manual:
If you know the part number (found in the owner's manual) or the make and model: http://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Parts? TLSID=1587&SearchText=&Ref=373032&gclid=CjwKEAjwl7ieBRCK2rCtqcCS7jESJA CZKQFKg877Zqj4hSvYV9MXXKfObDa7SVS4G-ztOELBEjEg1BoCUoDw_wcB
Or purchase a set of locking bolts:
Be sure to secure or take off the doors of your refrigerator and remove all the items it contains. This will prevent a messy clean-up when the appliance arrives at your new home. We suggest having this done prior to the day of your move. Also be sure to unplug the fridge 48 hours in advance of your move to ensure that the freezer has defrosted. This will prevent melt water from leaking out of the appliance and ruining other items in your moving vehicle.
