Went to check on my wife's mention that something might be wrong with the washing machine. Took a look and suddenly heard the sucking sound of a vacuum at my wallet.

I opened the lid and tilting at a 10 degree angle was the drum. (Pic attached)

Where do I begin? I'm a full time Computer tech, but am pretty capable with the heavy tools. Not intimidated if I can get some guidance on the order of disassembly. Does anyone have a preliminary diagnosis? (If it was a car I would guess the wheel bearing).

I ask for guidance honorable Samurai.

Looks like one of the support rods came off. On the top near the front corners are 2 rubber covers that hide a phillips head screw. With those screws out, you can raise the plastic top up and have a look. If it came off, just put it back like the other ones are. You might not have to spend a penny.

yep as above

but its either broken or you have 1 rod that is sticky

either way yopu will be looking at replacing a set of suspension rods as they dont come of for no reason

when you do change them , yu change them 2 at a time on opposite corners

example

remove front right and back left and fit the new ones in reverse

remove front left and back right and fit new
