Major Appliances/Lopsided drum in washer


The drum in my top loading washing machine is leaning back and to the left and hitting the side of the washer while running. How do I open the washer and fix it?

Thank you!

Accessing the Washer Components
To gain access to the washer components, the transition panel (Front panel under dryer) and washer top must be removed first.
1. Remove the two screws securing the transition panel to the unit.
2. Tilt the transition panel down and pull it straight out.
3.  Remove the two screws located behind the washer top.
4. Pull the washer top forward to disengage the top locks.  Disconnect the washer lid switch harness.  Lift the washer top off the unit.
5. Remove the two screws from inside the top of the washer front panel.
6. Lift up on the front panel to release the catches near the bottom of the panel and remove the front panel screws then the Front Panel
7. Many of the washer components can now be accessed.

Take a close look at the 3 support springs attached to the washer base and then the tub support for damage.  If I can help furtherů.
