How do I replace broken Leg Assembly on LG Washing Machine, model # WT4801CW?

When I realized our brand new LG Model WT4801CW washer was not leveled by the installers, I tried to level it by turning the leveling leg on the front left side of the washer. The plastic screw shaft part of the leg assembly broke off as I was trying to turn it. I need to get the broken shaft out of the washer so I can screw in a new leg assembly. I need to know how far I can tip the machine back in order to have access to the bottom of the machine so I can get the broken shaft out and put the new shaft in (I want to make sure that tipping the machine back too far will not damage it). Also, I need to know what the best way is to get the broken shaft out of the machine (for example would needle nose pliers work best?)
