Leveling a washer can be a pain sometimes.

1. You must have a solid foundation. The floor where it sets must be good.

2. Use a level. When adjusting the legs keep the washer as close to the floor as possible.

3. Problem inside the washer. Look inside for anything obvious i.e. loose springs, loose counter weight.

With the answer to my question everyone fails to mention that hp no longer supports their bios for my pc. Why? where can i actually really find it or rather an update? experts fail to keep up.

Okaaay. This site is Fixya, we are unpaid Experts, people just like you who help others, just because we can.

I have deleted my previous posting which told you the latest BIOS info which was what you asked for.

Contact Hewlett Packard direct and complain. If HP no longer support it, it is because the computer is out of date and they want you to buy a new one. I agree with them, don't run outdated computers.

Malber 1000 started leaking from the bottom. Water is coming from underneath the machine in the area behind the filter area

Usually what I have found is a small hole in the drain hose or coin trap, sometimes mice chew them and sometimes It is an abrasion wear from the balance brick rubbing. pretty easy fix though.
