Question about Washing Machines
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but if the tub is dropped, your support brackets on the tub may be broken. This repair is a major repair. You would need a new tub, and the labor takes several hours. I am affraid it may be time for a new washer. Feel free to call us if you need to ask questions. My name is Mike and I am the owner of a Appliance store.

Do not attempt to remove a drum unless you have been trained to do so
First thing to do is to dump the back drain hose into a big dish and drain off all of the standing water
in the machines sump.
Remove the power !!
Tip the machine towards the back and front to get as much water out of it as possible
Tip the machine back agains a wall or a bench with a cloth protecting both surfaces
Put a wooden block underneath the front edge of the machine in case it falls on you
Get a torch and look at the bottom of the drum , there will be a big hose connected to the base with a jubilee clip or spring clip
Remove the clip and pull the hose off , place a cloth on the floor as there may still be some water in the hose , if you are lucky the wire will be either in the hose or in the sump that the hose is fixed to.
If the hose is connected to the rear of the drum tip the machine as far back as possible allowing the wire to fall within reach of the hole
If you cant see it get a magnetic retriever or a piece of bent coat hanger and go fishing.
If the hose is fitted to the front of the drum reverse the machine and lay it on its front or as far forward as possible , that way the wire will fall towards the hole

I had the same problem, we opened up the bottom front panel and found a loose connection. Electrical connector had shaken loose.

you left it go toooo long and the drum bearings in the rear area have finally given way,the "lip-seal" that keeps water out failed some time ago and now the bearing(s) also went,this may be quite a costly affair getting the old bearings out of the plastic outer drum bore,if its even savable,bearings and seal are cheap,appx $70.00 for these/the drum if damaged $500.00+/the drum spline and spider that holds the drum $150.00 /plus labor depending how bad
