The legs need to be leveled. Also, check the back legs for being off the pivot.

My bosch nexxt washer model wfmc3200uc/01 vibrates excessivelyrics and moves across the floor on spin. I have balanced and tried everything. Any advice on parts that can be replaced or where to start

This probably aint it, but my front loader did that, and it turned out to be a bracket that they install for transport. It connects to the tub and keeps it from bouncing while in transport. If it is connected, remove it and try it then.

The washer bounces during spin cycle

Front loaders don't like small loads. There's not enough clothing to settle around to balance it. Only do large loads.

On all front loader machines there are some transport bolts that fix the drum. Normally on the back of the machine, sometimes under the lid. Remove these bolts and the plastic "tubes" that they pass through and it will release the drum. To test if they are in still, open the door and put your hand in, then try to bounce the drum, if you can't then the bolts are still in. There are between 3 and 5 bolts and usually a cover with the instructions to tell you how many.

Washer vibrates during spin cycle

Front loaders have to be situated on solid flooring such as a basement or they will vibrate.

The machine rocks so bad my wife had to turn it off

When I went to buy mine I asked about the bouncing and shaking and he said alot of times people do not take the nuts and bolts off the back that allows the drum to move properly causing it to move etc. There is a pic on the back that shows you were to remove them.

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.
