Thin Twin Tub tilts toward the back of the unit
« on: May 12, 2009, 08:30:12 PM »

The wash basket tilts to the back of the unit.  The unit is level.  I have looked underneath, there are two styrofoam blocks that appear to be loose aka lying around the bottom.  Would they play a role in keeping the tub level?  The washer works fine but it bothers me that it tilts.
