Question Rear leveling leg broken washer jumps around

Ge model WHSR2070V2WB wash machine and the left rear leveling leg does not stay down to keep it level.
How do I get to this to see if it is repairable?
Thanks

Rear legs are self leveling. Tilt machine forward until you hear a click from back and set back down. If you do not hear a click the legs are jammed and will need to be loosened usually be tilting machine forward and moving legs up and down until they free. Let us know how it turns out.

just play this when the machine is running. it won't fix the problem but it will make things seem better.

I have moved the rear legs. The right leg I can move up and down freely, the left side does not move easily and the exposed rollpin does not travel the full length of the slot in the back panel. When I set it back down the left leg does not stay extended.

you can see whats going on better if you take the front panel off. take a putty knife and stick it in where the 2 clips are at top of front panel and pull top of panel out.
