Exclamation Washing machine drum dropped 2 inches???

I just threw my work clothes into the washing machine and noticed an inch of water at the bottom and thought something might be up. So after the cycle was running, I went to have a look. I opened the lid and noticed that the drum seems to have dropped a couple of inches.

I can't imagine how that's possible, but there is a huge gap between the top of the drum and the frame. I don't use the machine much so I don't know what's what w/it, but they could not sell a machine that way.

Is it possible for the drum to drop and the machine still run? Could the water that was in it be leftover from the last wash because of the drop? How do I fix this?

The machine is a Fisher Paykel Aquasmart WL26CW2. It's about 9 years old.

Thanks guys!

It looks like that washer uses suspension rods to hold the tub up to the frame. If you click on the link below and select the "Inner/outer bowls tab" look at part number 12 in the diagram.
