It is your shocks. There are four shocks that holds the tub in place, and one of them is off the tub.

Washer is maybe 3 yrs old. It has been "walking"


You could be looking at bad bearings in the transmission unit but for a quick solution:
I would make a frame of wood the size of the base, make sure it's level with the floor area or shim it accordingly. Then drill some "foot" size holes for the bottom and set the machine in them.
Shouldn't walk anymore...

I have a GE brand new washing machine WSSH300GWW, great front loader machine, as soon as I turned it on, I could barely hear it, loved it. But as soon as it went through its spin cycle, wow. I thought my...


First thing is to make sure all of the shipping (brackets, bolts, straps, etc) have been removed.
Do FULL loads, NO partial (small) loads, these machines do NOT like small loads.
Where is the washer? Basement, first floor, second floor. Basement is the ideal place, on a concrete floor. If not, does the dryer shake when the washer does or is it just the washer? If the dryer does, the it could be the floor, not re-enforced enough. If all else fails call for service since it is NEW, but chances are the servicer will say what I just said.

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.
