If the tub has fallen and is on it's side, then most likely the problem is the bearings and/or coupler is bad
I would disconnect the dishwasher, tilt it on it's side, remove the access panels, take a look inside the machine to see if the bearings and/or coupler on the bottom of the tub is bad and needs to be replaced.

Drum fallen to one side

I don't know which model you have, but there are plastic suspension pads that hold the tub level, if one of those wears out the tub will tilt. This can happen when you get a heavy load out of balance.

Wash tub off center, tilted

it is possible for these machines to come off their springs when being moved or going badly out of balance. you will need to lift the bowl with one hand on the side it is sunken, and use the other to re position the rod / spring into the slot on the side of the bowl. they can also sit up on their springs, which just requires a quick jolt with your weight on the side that is raised, it will click back down.

Why does the tub hit the liner on my whirlpool washer?

Sounds like it may be off balance. First tilt the rear of the washer onto the front legs a few inches (make sure the rear legs come off the ground if even just a few inches.) and then let the washer drop back on its rear legs. This is an auto level feature on many washers. Now use a level on the outer edges on the top of the washer and make sure it is level. Adjust the front feet as necessary. Also make sure you are evenly loading your washer so the tub does not "swing" into the side.

Sounds like change grinding in spin cycle

This machine is prone to getting stuff down into drain pump. Pull unit away from wall, disconnect plug, hoses etc... Pull back steel panel of of rear of machine, facing rear of machine, drain pump on lower left, rinse pump on lower right, take needle nose pliers or spring pliers and remove hose to tub and drain pipe hose, tilt machine forward, take 5/16 nut driver and remove three screws holding pump, drop pump down, replace pump. Install in reverse order. Then, remove center nut in center of tub, pull center spinner out, then lift top to machine, remove inner tub and clean out metal, money or other stuff from bottom of outer tub, reinstall in reverse order.Once money has gotten into pump it can damage it, so replace it even though it looks good.

Fisher Paykel Ecosmart washing machine spills water.

sometimes too much detergent, or extra cleaners like oxy clean) will cause lots of foam which will cause the water level sensor to misread, or foam over the top of the drum. if this is not the problem, you will have to tilt the machine on its side and look for loose or damaged hoses. the play in the tub will not cause leaking

Whirlpool lsr7233eq0. The machine is level but

Grab back of washer on both sides and tip towards you and drop gently back. This will level the back legs which are self adjusting. Sometimes they stick You may have to pry with a screwdriver down towards floor to free them if this is the case.

This washing machine has self-leveling rear legs. Tilt the machine up on the front legs and you'll hear the back legs drop down to re-level itself. Center the basket and restart.

Kenmore wash basket

Hi pagrzych,
If the tub is getting out of ballance you can first make sure the rear automatic feet are leveled by tilting the washer forward and dropping it back down, the rear feet are made to automatically level when the machine is tilted forward. If after leveling you still have a problem the kenmore washers have springs that center the wash basket into place. Pull the washer out and tilt it back you should be able to see the springs on the back bottom of the wash tub. The are directly behind the motor and transmission. These springs can be easily replaced if broken or if they have came out of position. Good luck with your repair and I really hope this helped you. Please rate me if I helped.

Washing machine basket tilts to one side when washing

possibly one of the balancing weights, that are held by cables, have dislodged or the cable has come off a pulley. remove covers to look for a faulty condition such as this. I'm not sure of this model's balancing system, but it sounds like this type of problem.
