Washer dryer access on 430 Sedan Trawler


Mar 6, 2010
We have just used the W/D on our 2007 430 Sedan Trawler for the first time. Washer apparently has a problem with the water discharge. Carpet in hallway soaked. Commissary holds under galley floor flooded. Soapy water.

I can't figure out how to gain access to the back of the W/D. They are located under the lower helm and aft of the guest stateroom. It appears that they were dropped in as a module with blind stitching. No visible screws on any panels or obvious access. Haven't received a reply from the factory as yet about how to access this space. It also appears that I have no access to the fresh water tank area either.

Does anyone know how to gain access to these spaces without a sawzall or does anyone know who I might contact at Mainship that might return calls?

Thanks for any help!
