    If you’ve ever watched a washing machine (especially front-loader) spin, you’ll see that there is a lot of side-to-side movement. You need to add supports across the bottom (front-to-back & side-to-side) to help stabilize the pedestals.

    Haven’t opened up the instructions yet but are they secured to the pedestals in any way?

    Build your own pedestal is great idea & obviously more economical. BUT, the gas can on top of the water heater is not smart . They’re risking the lives of the people in that house. The gas can shouldn’t be in the house, especially in the same room with those appliances.
