The front should be a "little" higher than the back, in order that the doors will close softly when pushed past a certain point, and to assist in sealing the door to the cabinet. There is a levelling mechanism on the front rollers, turning a screw or bolt head clockwise will raise the rollers and counterclockwise will lower the rollers. If no rollers, then post type feet that screw in and out for height. Most have rollers in front and these can be adjusted with the screw or bolt that you can see in the front behind the lower cabinet cover. It should lift and pull straight out to remove, and you will then see the adjustment bolts or screws. You should be about half a bubble out of true level for the doors to seal well and close softly.

Is there an adjustment to tighten the refrigerator doors to stay open? Samsung refrig it is balanced.

You can adjust the front and back levelers that touch the floor so that the fridge tips forward just a bit. If you don't have a level, but do have a smartphone, there's a level built in, or you can download an app. Get some help adjusting the levelers -- fridges are heavy beasts.

Leveling a refridgerator

if not level you need to tip it back and unscrew or screw in the feet on it. use a 2ft level on top to be sure which way to go. if just the door, open door and there is a bracket in between the freezer and fridge and it should be adjustable a little bit. unscrew til lose adjust door to right spot and hold while tightening bolts. that should work. if the fridge door is on top and freezer is on bottom then adjust bracket screws on top of fridge.

Door does swing closed so it remains slightly open about half the time when the last person could have sworn they closed it. Hubby tried to adjust hinge but it did not make a difference. The fridge is only...

There should be a way to level the feet of your fridge so the door swings closed by itself. Check the user manual that came with your fridge for advice on how to do this on your fridge, as each make and model of fridge differs. This technique to level a fridge on the floor is generally necessary because the floor where the fridge is placed is unlevel, and it does not imply any fault with the fridge itself.

Washer is all over the place!

If you've recently had the washer apart for maintenance, you probably have managed to unlevel the washer. The rear feet of Whirlpool manufactured top loaders are auto-leveling. You can usually tell if the washer if off level if the back appears to be sitting lower than the front. You can reset the level by following these very simple steps:

1. Make sure the wash tub is empty.

2. Open the washer lid and grab the rim of the wash tub opening (do not grab the tub).

3. Place one foot against the bottom front center of the washer.

4. Pull the washer towards you so that the back feet come off the floor. You should hear a clicking noise as the rear feet automatically level.

5. Lower the washer back in place and use a level to ensure the washer is level front to back and side to side.

This is a common issue when moving or doing maintenance on the washer. Many consumers do not know about the auto-leveling feature of these washers.

If you find that the washer is still unlevel after resettting the back feet, adjust the front feet by using a wrench to adjust the feet.

I would attempt these procedures first before assuming a bent shaft. I have never seen that occur. Its not to say that it can't, but its probably not common.

If you have any questions, or if you still need assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: Kenmore washers are manufactured by Whirlpool.
