    Are the dresser and the floor that it sits on both level? If either one cannot be levelled, then you may need to anchor the back of the dresser on to the wall to help prevent it from leaning slightly to the front. This can be done by screwing through the back of the dresser into the wall, or attaching L shaped plates to the sides of the dresser into the wall.

    Hello there,

    It could be your floor is not level, try lifting the front of the dresser with a bit of cardboard under the legs. Hope that solves the problem!
