The washer goes between the swingarm and caliper mount.

No adjustment that I'm aware of. I'd disassemble it verify that the pads are installed correctly and go from there.

Could one of the brake pistons be hung up causing constant contact? Or a piston seal come off and wedged between the piston & pad? Is it the entire brake caliper that looks cocked or the whole brake sub assembly or just the pads inside the caliper? BikeBandit.com has a pretty good exploded parts diagram as do other parts places. Take a look. Good luck.
