The bolts are located at the back of the washer and they must be removed before use otherwise the machine will shake and bounce around significantly.

If the washer has excessive vibration, the balance ring may have lost its fluid. The balance ring sits on top of the outer tub and helps to counter the force of the spin cycle. If the fluid leaks out of the balance ring the washer tub will be too heavy for the suspension system and cause the machine to vibrate and shake.

Washer vibration can occur if one of the leveling legs is out of adjustment. Using a carpenters level on the top of the machine, be sure to adjust each leg until the machine is level side to side and front to back. Once the machine is level, tighten the lock nuts, if equipped, on the leveling leg threaded bolt against the body of the washer to keep them from changing height.
