Try leveling the washer. Check for play along the diagonal corners of the washer cabinet by applying downward pressure. If there is any play at all, the washer will shake during spin and the legs must be leveled.
You have br put your heavy washer on a floor that would be condemned for structural weakness if a building inspector saw it. Try placing reinforcing pads or pieces of plywood on the floor under the washer.
On Maytag top loaders: worn damper pads.
On Whirlpool/Kenmore direct-drive machines: worn snubber pad

A very common call I get on Whirlpool built direct drive washers, and one of very few problems they have, is that the machine vibrates like it's out of balance when spinning even without any clothes in the basket. Sometimes it'll walk across the floor if this is allowed to worsen.The cause is nearly always support pads. The entire mechanism rests on these three small plastic pads, and when they wear even a little bit, the machine will vibrate like crazy in spin, like its load is badly out of balance. Replacing these pads (part 285744, around 10 for the set will nearly always correct this problem. And they aren't hard to replace if you re just a little handy Here s how Unplug the washer. Remove the 2 Phillips screws that retain the console. On some machines, these are hidden under console end caps that must be pried off. On newer models they re on the back of the console Rotate the console fwd then up and back it will hang back out of the way if the washer s away from the wall far enough.Unplug the white lid switch plug and pry up the 2 large clips that hold the cabinet to the washer back panel.Tilt the entire cabinet forward and it ll unhook from the retainers on the base. Lift the cabinet off and set aside (not as heavy as it sounds With the cabinet off you ll see 3 large horizontal springs, one in each corner of the support 'tripod and one smaller, vertical one in the left-rear that counterbalances the motor's weight. Unhook all 4 of these springs and insert a small piece of 1 by (5 8 or 3 4 thick) board to prop the mechanism up, to access the pads one at a time. Insert the piece of wood between pad locations, on a side of the support triangle a helper's handy here Use a little lighter fluid to clean the mating surface of the support plate that these pads ride against before inserting each new one. Be careful not to scratch the support plate when working under it it needs to be smooth and contaminate-free. Knock the old pads out one at a time, by lightly tapping on their mounting pins from underneath with a hammer. Put each new pad in place in its mounting holes, carefully remove the wooden 'shim then stand up and push down ******* the tub on that corner. You ll hear and feel the pad snap into its mounting holes.Repeat this process for each of the other two pads mounted on the support tripod' (do the rear, 'fun' one last after you have experience replacing the other two and your washer will behave a whole lot better in the spin cycle. And if you have any trouble finding these support pads locally, let me know. I keep lots of them in stock. You can order a set here Oh, and remember to reach around and pat yourself on the back! You just saved yourself at least 100.00
