It needs to be leveled. Try adjusting the threaded feet using a standard adjustable wrench (you'll need a slender one to fit under the machine) and check the level front to back, as well as side to side.

You may need to put wood shims under the feet to level it out.

SOURCE: washer shakes as if unbalanced during spin cycle

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Whirlpool / Kenmore top load, direct drive washers use a number of springs between the main suspension plate and base assembly as well as friction pads that are designed to minimize shaking.

See the Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual for top load washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

It's likely that one of the springs or pads has broken or come off.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet to get at these.

Kenmore washer shakes violently during spin cycle


syrny,

Not sure what you did, exactly. First, does the machine shake when spun empty...and then with water only? If so, you have probably failed to tighten something or misaligned something. Go over your work.

No shakes? Rearrange your load. You may have a pair of heavy wet jeans which is throwing the whole thing out of kilter. It only takes about a half pound of sodden clothing to do this.
