I've seen where many others do it, but I'm not seeing anywhere in the winterizing instructions in the wet bay where it says to do so. I'm going with that and your experience on this...Thank you!

Well Jim, if you're talking about the soap dispenser in the Washer, if you freeze it and it breaks, you may have to replace parts. Our dealer told us not to forget to pour some antifreeze in there. When the washing machine finishes it's washing cycle, the last few seconds of the spin cycle puts some water in the soap dispenser. That is so that while the dryer is running, the water in the soap dispenser prevents hot air from exiting thru the soap dispenser. So unless you pour antifreeze in the soap dispenser, it still has water in it from the last drying cycle.

I removed our breaker also but not in that fashion. Doing it that way will trap water on the incoming side since there is a one way valve at the hose connection. I cut my lines in the basement and plumbed them together so it is all down hill towards the tank so the water will self drain to the tank.
