I presume this is a topload machine. Depending on model there are a couple of different foot designs, one has four independent feet - are all four feet firmly planted? Many models have rear feet that 'self adjust'. When the machine is tilted forward, the rear feet adjust so that all four feet are firmly planted. If this is not the problem, then there are some questions: If you open the lid, is the basket centered? If not, you may want to intentionally 'unlevel' the machine so that the basket is better centered. Is there anything slippery such as fabric softener under the feet? What type of floor is it sitting on? Floating smooth floors (those laid on a substrate layer) are the worst. Try cleaning both the floor and the bottoms of the feet. Putting double sticky tape under the feet might help. Does it walk every time? The water in the balance ring(s) might be missing because of a 'rub' causing a hole in the balance ring. Are you washing 'lumpy' items (picture a bowling ball ;-) ) if so, you might consider additing additional items to better distrubute the load.

This was my fix, my machine that would error out with DC/UC codes.
I just did a repair on my FAV6800AAW by lubricating the needle bearings in the clutch pulley hub, the tub displacement sensor checked OK per the service manual check. I was getting dc/uc errors in the spin cycle, washer was purchased in 7/05. I have basic mechanical skills and used a socket wrench to remove clutch pulley, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove the clutch pulley. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley and inspect the spring, clean/lube needle bearings and the clutch hub coupler that drives spinner shaft. I used WD40 I may need to re-lube down the road with a good light grease. It took a few tries for me to get the clutch pulley to stay on after re-install and power up, getting the clutch pulley seated properly is the trick. I did not remove the washer tub for this fix, I believe I saw a posting where someone did. I just leaned the washer back to get a better reach angle, it is a tight work area. I did not want to junk 4 yr old $1k machine with out trying a fix. If you want to work on this model get the service manual, good luck!

Check the Sears parts site for diagrams of all the major components. Replace the model number shown (11020802990) with your model number (found on cabinet when you open the lid)
Look at the diagram for the machine base and you should see the springs and where they connect.
