Question Dryer Leveling Legs Hole Bent

Movers must have slid dryer and legs caught on something forcing the legs to bend the metal and the legs are now crooked. I know I need new legs and I'll try to hammer on the metal around the holes to make it as straight as possible. The flooring where the dryer is located is kind of soft, probably cheap linoleum and now the crooked legs dig in a little as I slide the dryer into position. I probably won't be able to bang the metal out enough to make the legs sit flush on the floor, so any advice on any facet of this is appreciated.

any of these under legs would work. Dryer is not heavy.

Before I did anything I'd try running the dryer to see if it's even an issue.

One trick to straightening the holes if you need to, is remove the existing skid feet and insert a grade 8 bolt of the same thread about 3" long. You can bang on that bolt without messing up your feet. Then remove it and insert your feet.

Thanks, this sounds like the right first step.
