Question about Washing Machines
I have even run it without a load of clothes in it. When it spins things all over the house vibrate. It's a maytag.
Check first the machine balance, to ensure the machine is at level and well balanced and that is not the problem.
If you already inspected springs and strut, then the problem is usually the drum bearing, or the drum bearing spider that has broken.
You can superficially check if there is a problem with the drum bearing by spinning the drum with the hand to check if there is excessive play.
If you found oil under the machine, check also that the support for the motor and motor gear box under the bearing is not damaged, and any of this part is banging again the chassis, this can cause oil leak, and machine shaking.
The most common is a bad bearing.

I have read that if the pump is not draining the tub completely, there is an interlock that prevents the high speed spin from engagin. I have had debris caught in my pump several times (kids!!) with similar issues. There is a trap on the line leading from the tub to the pump which is "supposed" to capture debris, but it doesn't work all that well. Check your pump.....

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.
Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.
Replace/repair as necessary.
