No matter what everytime we wash when the spin cycle happens the machine walks and shakes and we have to sit and open the door adjust the clothes and never able to complete a full cycle. This is very frustrating. We can never leave the room because of the noise and shaking no matter how much is in the machine
We have had the same problem and as per a You Tube fix video,we ourchased the suspension kit W 10189077 (our machine is a WT 6600 SW). problem solved.Carefull when reaching to remove the "springs",the edge is VERY SHARP.

CLOTHES UNBALANCED? OR COUNTER BALANCE SUPPORTS BROKEN, AND NEED REPLACMENT? WASHERS have many different weight balancers but sounds like u need to take body off and have look at the counter weights set up while running machine, just jumper the door switch to keep a closed line. and then agin sometimes its as simple as making sure ur washer is leveled on ur floor, check ur leg adjusters as they do get funny at times..
If your washing machine shakes violently or if there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
After the rinse cycle, the washer rapidly spins the tub to get as much water out of the clothes as it can. It works basically the same way as a salad spinner. If the weight of the clothes in the washer is not balanced, the washer will shake and maybe even jump around during the spin cycle. This is pretty normal. If all of your jeans end up on one side, and your t-shirts on the other, the jeans will hold more water, their side of the tub will be heavier, and the washer will shake a lot during the spin cycle.
If the washer is shaking too much, open it after the rinse cycle (wait for the tub to stop before reaching in) and spread the clothes out evenly in the tub. Try to balance the weight. Then close the lid/door and let it continue spinning.
Sounds like one of the internal suspension/dampening units for the drum unit has broken or become unattached. Am not certain what this machine has but removal of top and rear cover should allow you to inspect the items and arrange replacement as required.
On something like this you will need to remove the washer wrap to
inspect the suspension springs & base assembly. Please see the link
provided for accessing the inside of the washer. Be sure the shipping
pins have been removed. The tub should float freely.
I had this problem as well.
I called dealer and Maytag.
They made an appointment and stood me up several times.
I finally went to place that sells refrigeration equipment and bought an anti-vibration pad.
It's a 12" square waffle pad used under large equipment to prevent them from vibrating loose on connected piping. I cut it into 4 pieces and put one under each corner of the dryer.
Problem solved, in fact it worked so well that I stacked dryer over washer, placed pads between units and have not had a problem since. I also gained a lot of space in my laundry room as well.
Check latch mechanism for alignment. Often operation of machine loosens latch mechanism causing internal switch for "door open (or ajar)" preventing rinse or spin cycle. Opening and closing door presses latch mechanism closing internal switch allowing for continue processing to rinse or spin cycles.
The rear 2 legs are fixed. The front 2 are adjustable. There are lock nuts to prevent the adjustment from coming loose. The front legs are to be adjusted to the minimum. While not running if the machine rocks, continue the adjustment.
For few clothes there is a half load switch; best the read the manual well before anything. Well if the walking continues, check the rear for any shocks or springs that may hv fallen off during transport. Plug off the wall socket first.
