Rex, probable broken balancing springs. Check the attached links,

Lastly Washer vibration can be caused by a broken counter balance spring. Ur washer may be equipped with one or more counter balance springs which help to absorb the natural movement of the spinning tub. If a counter balance spring fails the tub might lean in one direction more than another and it will shake and cause vibration.
By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!
The tub is out of balance. When it starts hitting the sides, stop the washer and move your clothes around inside the tub to balance the tub. Now start it to spin again. This should stop the tub from hitting the sides.
This model of washer does not have an out of balance cut off switch. If the load is not balanced properly the tub could hit the cabinet sides. If the unit spins evenly while empty & out of balance while loaded, I recommend checking & balancing the load. If the basket spins out of balance while empty, I recommend having the suspension springs & balance ring checked. Be sure not to wash light fabric with heavy fabric clothes. Also ensure that the adjustable feet are level, that's most important.
1- Clothes load is not balance.
2- Tube is balanced by several springs from the bottom tube to the chassis. If one of these springs is broken or slipped out the tube will lean to onside causing this problem. Check these out.
Try leveling the washer... If the washer is level, then don't wrap the clothes around the agitator...drop the clothes straight in, on top of each other evenly around the agitator. The Ensignia washer has a Dual action agitator... That means the clothes roll over them selves, instead of moving side to side, as with a traditional agitator. wrapping the clothes around the agitator will cause the load to be un balanced and then cause the "banging" noise... this should take care of the problem...
most likely a spring has come off the tub base. there are three short horizontal springs that surround the tub connecting it to the tripod base and one long spring in the very back that connects the base to the bottom back. check these out and reattach if off.
Typically when the drum spins and walks the washer, it is a loading issue. As the clothes spin, they collect on 1 side, due to cintrifical force acting upon an uneven load. THis is especially prevalent in loads that are: 1. small, 2. contain lots of towels and 3. anything else that really holds water and is very heavy when wet (like comfortors, pillows)
These will very quickly throw the load off-balance.
When it happens, pull out some of the itmes, and re-load the laundry more evenly around the drum. Be sure to circle the post with towels and sheets, etc.
If you continue to run the machine off-balance for an extended time, the bearings and seals will wear quickly. Unfortunately, you will only know this when the washer begins to leak out under the machine onto the floor.
Hopefully this will fix-ya....if not let me know please!
