Make sure the shipping pins have been removed. They're usually attached to yellow strap at the rear of the machine (sometimes people just cut off the strap so look underneath as well to make sure it has been removed). Looking at the inside, the washer drum should move freely from front to back and side to side.
Next is leveling. This is sometimes tricky in that it really has nothing to do putting a level on the machine unless your floor is uneven and adjustments need to be made to the front legs. As long as it looks fairly straight to the eye, level the machine by opening the lid, putting your foot in front of machine and holding the inside of the cabinet. Tilt the machine toward you and lift the rear of the machine about 2-3 inches (you should hear the legs drop). Set it back down. It should now be leveled since the rear legs are self leveling. Try rocking the machine from the top in a diagonal motion and ensure the weight is evenly distributed on all 4 legs.
If these things have been checked and it's still "walking" make sure the load inside the washer is not off balance.
Good luck!

This washer is JUNK!!!!!! We have the same washer (2 1/2 years old) and same problem. Tried to replace the bearing myself, no luck. So I called a repair man to come out and look at it. As soon as i told him the model number, they would'nt even come out. Very common problem for this washer. We are on our way to Sears to purchase a Kenmore.....GOOD LUCK
