Question about Washing Machines
If it is a front loading machine, the drum is held in place by a bunch of mini shock absorbers. If one of them is bad or broken it will spin unevenly. There are usually 8 shocks, 4 on the bottom (2 in front, 2 in back) and 4 on the top. The bottom can be inspected by taking the bottom face plate off (usually held on with clips) the top by taking the top of the machine off (usually held on with screws in the back of the machine).

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.
(If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.)
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Usually when this happens the cloths are off balance or the washer may be to full, it also can do this when it is off level other then that the tub may need to be adjusted by an appliance personal. I hope you get this problem fixed.

some washers have a concrete counter balance that has been known to come loose that might be causing your knock
