I'm putting my washing machine into storage for 10+ months in a garage that is not insulated and will experience sub-freezing temperatures for multiple months.
The question is: should I drain the pump of all the water or not?
I think I do because I don't want the water freezing.
However, I wasn't sure if I needed to intentionally leave some water in to keep parts moist /lubricated. (I think that's the case with some dishwasher seals if I recall).
