Vibrating Washing Machine

I have a Kenmore Series 90 top loader, model # 110.2891279. I haveleveled the machine several times; however, it is very noisy and walksacross the laundry room during the spin cycle. Any suggestions to at least keep it in place?

How long have you owned this unit? If it is new I would look in back for yellow straps and yank them out as they are shipping straps, If it is old I would get it to that point of dancing and stop the machine and check for water in the basket. If this doesn't get it I would pull the machine out and tilt it back and look at the four springs supporting the tub to make sure they are attached especially the one in the back that goes tub to frame. If it is an old but faithful machine suddenly acting this way I suspect basket alignment from a corroded block drive, damaged agitator and holding the lid switch so you can watch the spin will pin point this problem. Another is slow spin from a worn timer leaving water in the clothes, you would know because the clothes wouldn't spin out 100% of the water. Finally older machine can get a sledgy deposit in the back bottom of the tub close to the center causing a unbalance usually marked by a smelly machine that leaves black marks and spots on clothes. Please get back after you have this food for thought.
