With the washer empty, tilt it front a few inches and drop it back down. This will re-level the legs. If it still jumps around, replace the drum snubber, inside the front of the machine. It's a rubber pad that keeps the drum from moving around too much. Snubbers dry out with age.
The load is out of balance. Open the lid and redistribute the contents. When it's empty, grab the basket and give it a slight push sideways. It should move a little but, not free swing. If it doesn't have much resistance, the "snubber" has dried out and should be replaced. It is simply a piece of rubber in a metal bracket, that rests on the tub. When the basket spins,the snubber keeps it from jumping around.
I Can help
1: Unplug the Washer, turn off hot cold supply to Hoses.
2: Turn Washer around and remove Cover on Back.
3: Look at the "Belt" pull on it to see if it is Loose.
4: Check the "Pulleys" The "Belt" is connected to. Look for Signs of "Blackness" Caused by the Belt Wearing.
5: If thats the case just Replace the Belt.

is it more like a roar or a train going by? if so your rear tub bearing is going out. very expensive have to replace the tub, basket, spinner ring and shaft and seals about 4 hrs for an exprienced tech to do took me 7 hrs to do for the first time. but it will be very close to $1000 to have done not much less to do it yourself.
Remove the front panel and you will see two metal guides attached to the front of the frame. One of them will probably be bent and the transmission assembly will have jumped over one or the other of the guides. You need to manually pull it back to center then straighten the bent guide. May have been caused by load being out of balance or machine not properly leveled. Good luck.
Welcome hendrik, You said, jumping around during spin cycle
How old is your GHW9150 washer?
Usually it is overload or load unbalanced due to uneven load.You must stop the machine and re-distribute the load and or weight!
Here are some Whirlpool reasons for you. But if nothing helps you may have a mechanical problem to be serviced!
Try these ideas first!
Is the load balanced? A single or bulky item may cause imbalance. Add more items or redistribute the load. Washer makes noise or vibrates Is the washer level? The washer must be level. The four feet should be properly installed, and the nuts should be tightened against the washer cabinet. As water is drained from the washer, you may hear air being pulled through the pump. This happens during the end of draining. It is normal. Are you washing items with metal snaps, buckles or zippers? You may hear metal items touching the washer drum. This is normal. Is washer installed on a sturdy and solid floor? Refer to the “Installation Instructions” for flooring requirements. Noise and vibration may be reduced by placing a piece of ¾" (19.1 mm) plywood underneath your washer. The plywood may extend underneath both washer and dryer to keep them at equal heights. Let me know If you have any questions and what happens!!! Huuum Please remember to leave a rating!
