Question about Washing Machines
Recently the washer has learned to dance alone, and upon exam both front legs stable but back leg leveling arm wont hold both back legs level. so it dances around how can it be fixed
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
