Re: BACK LEG LEVELING ARM
The back legs are usually not adjustable. Adjust the front legs & lock them with the lock nuts, at the lowest level, that is the machine tilts towards the front. Adjust further if there is any shake when you try with your hands.
You could also check to see if any springs or shocks have become loose. Refer manual.

If your Maytag is dancing across the floor the most common problem is the leveling. If one or more of the feet are not level it ill wobble and walk around the floor. When you level the machine on the top both directions make sure the set nut is tightened so you will not have to retighten it again later.
The rear legs are floating and self leveling. If one of them legs is all the way up in the base tip the washer towards you and yank out the leg to where each side is floating. Then ease the washer back down to the floor and she will level herself off.
as far as leveling goes once leveling legs have been set,you can lock them in place by turning the nut on leg itself counter clockwise until its secure to top of leg,however if the unit is shaking during spin cycle and is located in upper floor laundry setting,chances are the floor is weak,and cannot withstand downward force generated during final spin...add an absorption pad under unit to assist/alleive the issue
Try using plastic shims from any Major hardware outlet, and place on the right side until even. Make sure the shims, or even a block of wood the space you need to level the unit. Try screwing the back right leg out as far as you can and screw the left back leg in to shorten it, if you have that feature.
first get a level. second, some have self leveling rear legs, just lean the machine forward and set down slowly. the rear legs are now level. if you dont have self leveling rear legs, the legs screw in, so just screw them in or out as well as the front legs untl it appears level by eye. now place the level on the washer. check it front to back and side to side. try rocking the machine to see if there is any movement. if there is adjust the legso it stops rocking, all the while keeping an eye on the level
take the lid off the spacers should be at the back but when u undue the big hex screws at the back they usually fall out anyway now easiest way to balance is by just using the front adjusters and not the back make slight adjustment on each leg just so you stop swaying from side to side you dont make the washer level level you need it to sloop slightly backwards anyway to stop water from coming out of the soap drawer another thing i do when leveling a washer is once u turn 1 leg with 1 hand hold the washer by the top so u stop it from rocking now adjust the other leg up until that 1 hits the floor and turn once more now try and rock it if it doesnt move from side to side now your done dont adjust the back legs more than likely it doesnt have legs at the back most have wheels on the back now anyway m8
