It is not nuts but an internal bracket. You can access it from underneath by stretching your arm inside once you have found the bracket. REMEMBER TO POWER OFF BEFORE PUTTING YOUR ARM IN!

Door is not level, how do I fix?

There should be some adjustment in the door hinges. Check the hinges to make sure the pin that enters the door is not broken. If it is, dril out the pin and replace it with a small bolt, put two nuts on the bolt and use the top nut to adjust the hight of the door.

I would suggest you check the brushes in the motor, as it sounds like they are worn out.
Replace them if they are less than 3 or 4 mm long

Hotpoint Front Loader Washing Machine

My neihbors Maytag had a bad "wax motor" on the door. It's the locking mechanism. When it went bad it also damaged the control board which I was able to repair luckily. Total cost was less than $50. I don't charge labor..haha. If it's just the lock I'd say <$200. If the control board is bad I'd say >$500.
