Make sure the 4 silver shipping bolts have been removed from the back of the unit.

Properly level the machine by doing a full load of clothes, and leveling the machine while it is in a full spin.

The only thing to check is to see that some struts behind is taken off. This is inserted to prevent the drum from banging around during transit; refer to your manual. Important.

Frigidaire front load washer making a noise and jumping when going through the spin cycle. Why???

If this is a brand new washer, make sure the shipping materials are all removed, yellow shipping pins in back, styrofoam blocks etc. If this is an older machine, new problem, empty the machine, reach into the washer and give the basket a good hard spin, if you hear any type of grinding noise, or excessive rattling, your bearing and possibly the spin basket support are bad. I would also remove the top and front- bottom panel, and make sure the suspension springs and shocks are not broken before assuming the bearing, as this is a very lengthy and expensive job, (although the basket itself should have a lifetime warranty).
