top edge of the washer, first side to side, then front to back.
If the washer is against a wall, move the washer out slightly
before tipping back. If the washer is not level, first prop the
front with a wood block and adjust the feet as necessary;
then prop the back and adjust feet as necessary. Repeat this
step until washer is level.
2. Make sure that all four feet are stable and resting on the floor.

side, or diagonally.
