How do I adjust the legs of my Samsung Top Loader washing machine?
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!

Lol most all washer you turn the leg like a screw usely to the right to lower it left to make it longer some have a nut also on the leg that needs to be lose before leg moves so after you git he front of washer level from side to side most you just lean washer forward back will auto level some you do the same as you did in the frount

The legs that it rests on are adjustable and have adjustments that commonly screw in an out. It is a must upon installation that the machine is level or it will shake itself to pieces. Get a level and put on the top of it and using a level front to back and side to side adjusting the legs underneath until it is right. This will cure your problem.
there are usually four adjusters at the base they are very thin and a spanner will be needed to adjust instead of a spirit level use a float bubble its circular like ten pence peice made from plastic with a bubble and cross with centering lines on it for gaining best centre position BQ sell them hope this helps
Unfortunately the service documentation for Elba is not available. Although the machine has been built by F&P and although is similar to a Fisher & Paykel Smartdrive there are some small difference. The clutch system may be similar to the smartdrive. I have uploaded the service manuals for two smart drive models below, see if that can help. Check section about disassembly.
Hi Steven. You maching is a top load type and it sounds like the leveling legs under you machine are no longer adjust properly. This can occur from moving the unit or just over time from normal use. You can verify this by pressing down individually (one at a time) on the 4 corners of the top of you unit. If it rocks when you press down or push on the the corners then your leveling legs are out of adjustment. Adjust the legs under the unit until it no longer moves when you press on the corners and see if this solves your problem. If you need more help later then reply to this post.
The front 2 legs should be screwed in completely, and locked with the check nut. (the check nut is at the upper end of the bolt, and is a loose nut) This means the machine is lowest in the front. If you find any shake (try with both your hands) adjust accordingly, & lock with the inner check nut. Normally the machine adjusts itself if the weight is un-balanced; but it cannot do anything if the legs are uneven.
There could be some spring or shock-absorber come loose inside the machine. Plug off the wall, remove panel behind & check. If you could remove the top to check fine.
Also find out the actual capacity of the machine - look user's manual (a book which is seldom read), it would be good to actually weigh your dry laundry to have an idea.
Would be nice if you rate me pl. Good luck.
