Ther feet to the front of the washer are adjustable. You need either a spanner or a pair of pliers to adjust them. Get a spirit level and check which way the washer needs adjusting to make it level. Adjust the feet accordingly

My whirlpool Duet 9750 takes a long time to spin out and has a difficult time trying to balance


I owned a Whirlpool Duet and had spin/balance problems when I washed heavy and light items together. During a deep freeze my drain hose froze. Did everything I could think of until I ran hot water through washer. It took awhile to thaw. If your floor is weak, you will have a lot of vibration and walking. Hope this helps.

Balance, washer shakes and walks across floor


Have you checked to make sure the supports are OK? Is your washer making loud noises during spinning? If so, the basket drive may be broke.

Washing machine balance is off since we moved it.


There are tension springs attached to the tub. They are for the balancing upon spinning. Check and see if one came loose

Front load washer shakes violently during spin cycle


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.

Walking Washer


due to weight and normal motion during wash/spin a very sturdy floor is necessary under front loads also some floors are a little slick and sliding may occur ck for weak floor and maybe some kind ok rough cushion under feet to reduce sliding also if on pedistals even more vibration may occur be sure all screws in pedistal are secure usually 4 from top onto bottom of washer also adj legs to lower unit as close to floor as possible and tighten lock nuts

Moving


Don't know if you've done it, but put a level on the machine itself and make sure it is level. Adjust it front, back and side to side. This may cure your "walking problem".

Walking during the spin cycle


Try placing it on a rubber mat or carpet that has a rubber backing. The floor may be too smooth and allows it to walk.
