Question about Washing Machines
I am not blonde, although I have had to check about ten times this morning just to be sure. Yes, I have my manual and even googled another as the manual is clearly written out for those who do not require pictures drawn for them. I however, do! (I also got mud on the first one when trying to drain the pipes, but that's a whole other story!!)
I pulled out the adjustable legs (situated on the left and right side of the machine as promised) and was quite chuffed with myself until numerous cranking, pulling, cursing etc. did not level my drum. If anything I've made it worse as I am now one hot, sweaty, irritable woman!
It says (and I'll quote) "Pull the handles located at the right and left of the front side and slide off" Slide off where! They're firmly fitted to the dang machine! Next "Adjust the height of the machine up or down" HOW!! The handles stay on the side of the machine, they dont come to the front and no amount of yanking, pulling, swearing makes any difference. And if your one leg is longer than the other (okay, not yours, the machine's) how do you know whether you're cranking it up or down!!!!
Right, I'm going to trust you on this one and grab a cup of coffee and a smoke before I totally lose my rag and wheel the machine out onto the street!
Hi hot, sweaty,irritable .In most machines you just tilt it back 45o,the legs should be treaded,screw them,up,or down,to level,I don't know about the handles, new to me.Close Ireland,good luck

Place the level on the top of the washing machine to see if it is level. Make sure you test it side to side and front to back.
Pull the washing machine away from any walls if you have to make an adjustment to the legs.
Lift the washer and place the wood block underneath the washer. Place the block near the leg that needs to be adjusted, but don't let it obstruct the leg.
Loosen the nut that secures the leg with the wrench.
Raise the height of the leg by twisting it to the left, or lower the height by twisting it to the right.
Remove the block of wood from under the washer and recheck the machine with the level.
Raise or lower the leg if additional adjustments are needed.
Tighten the nut on the leg with the wrench when the machine is level.
Repeat the process for each leg that needs to be adjusted.
Move the washer back into position and check with the level again to make sure the washer remains stable to finish leveling the machine.
