House Project: The Washing Machine's Problem

I had mentioned previously that the washing machine was trying to move north to Canada. GE's warranty guy came out this morning, and discovered that when the builder installed the washing machine, he neglected to remove the shipping rods and a big chunk of Styrofoam that protect the machine from damage in shipping. The shipping rods prevent the drum from moving up and down on its suspension, thus transferring vibration from the drum to the frame, and then to the floor--hence the walking. There was no damage caused to the washing machine by this failure to properly install it, but it is rather frustrating to see such a minor detail missed.
