The 'Damping weghits may have come loose.
There are large concrete block bolted to the drum casing.
Means getting it out and taking the top off to have a look see.

My Samsung SWT5V9W top loader spins when you turn the power button on. It still spins during the cycle and 'fights' itself to agitate. Would this be a computer issue?

This can be related to a mechanical issue, Check for free movement of the drum and shaft. check the mountings of the motor,check the suspension and finally the level of the machine, use a rubber mat if the machine moves around.

Our Roper (Whrilpool) 1 year old top load super capacity washer (111-07) is dancing across the floor during the spin cycles. I have it perfectly leveled and just can figure it out.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @17:21 Fri afternoon,

Please do not take this the wrong way but- there is 'level' and there are ' all 4 feet supporting the washer equally'.
As your washer is only a year old I would not suspect (yet) any internal malfunctioning- so a close check on the 2 front feet is required- honestly!
With the machine not running, firmly (and I mean firmly) push one front corner diagonally to the centre of the machine to see if there is any rocking at all. If there is even the slightest movement the foot at that corner deeds to be adjusted downwards until it is almost (and I say 'almost') pushing the machine up but not doing so.
If it is not the first corner which moves then you need to do the same with the other. Once all 4 feet are equally supporting the machine ,it is necessary to also ensure that the locking nuts are screwed tight UP to the base of the machine to stop them from moving.

If, after really ensuring the machine does not move by the above BUT it continues to dance all over the floor, maybe part of the drum supporting mechanism is broken/malfunctioning.
So far I have not been informed of anyone NOT being successful at curing dancing by the 'feet' method! I hope you are not the first!!!
Good luck,

How do i better support my washing machine to make the floor sturdy

Every washing machine has crew type legs on each corner, if it teaters from corner to corner it is not properly leveled. you need to adjust the legs up and down until the machine is level and does not teater from corner to corner, like rock solid..when you put in a load of lawndry that is lop sided, the machine has a tendency to dance around the floor during the spin cycle, to stop this open the lid and re-adjust the lawndry evenly then close the lid and it should quit dancing around the floor.

Now if your floor is too weak, you need to get under the house and put in somemore beams to support the weight of the machine....

Good luck....

Spin cycle shakes whole washing machine

have you tightened the jamb nuts on the legs after leveling the machine so they can't move from where you set them initially when you leveled the unit?

During spin cycle, washing machine is bouncing around the room

Sounds like the drum, balance weights have come off, to me. This will cause those symptoms.

Washer was jumping and dancing when it got to spin cycle

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.
