So.. looks like the main pin on the washer is bent. This is a front load washer, so the whole weight of the bin and all that is on one rotating pin in the back of the washer. Just like what happened with the dryer, the pin bent from the stress of the design. Grr. Prolly going to have to go with a top load washer this time.
Which means we'll have to re-organize the 'closet' where the washer/dryer are so that they are side-by-side. May have to widen the doorway so we can actually open the dryer doors/etc.
May have to pop over to Percy's tonight to get a new one.
