smirkin, the question here is if the basket is listing against the tub or the whole tub and basket is listing. If the basket is listing and banging around it could be the drive block has worn or broken. I will attach a photo of one. If the whole tub is listing it could be a spring that broke. You can remove the front panel of the washer by pressing in on the two clips on each side of the washer top, The front panel should drop and pull out. You can see if any of the suspension sprins broke. The drive block is located under the basket. The agitator and basket have to be removed to change it out. Take a look at the attachments...Catriver..post back

Since your washer worked fine while in Germany and now is exhibiting this problem at your new home, you may want to double check how it was installed. I suspect you may have a problem known as "siphoning". The following link explains:
This could be a simple situation where the drain line on the washer is not installed correctly. There are minimum height and length requirments on the drain line. In addition, make sure the stand pipe you have the drain hose inserted in has a proper air gap to allow draining. All of this is explained in the link provided.
I hope this information is helpful to you. The majority of the situations arise from improper installation and is not an operaitonal problem with the washer. If, however, you double check everything and still have problems, please post back and let me know.

The washer balance is mostly controlled by two factors:
If that doesn't solve your problem, you may want to check the tub suspension. There are shock absorbers beneath the tub that push in opposite directions to keep the tub balanced in the cabinet. You can access them by removing the front access panel (diagram below -- remove 3 screws and pull out from the bottom to let it fall down)
You will see the shock absorbers in plain view. Wiggle the tub around to see if one is any weaker than the others. If so, replace it.

Hello penpoint1959 - The tub is stabilized in the center with multiple springs which attach to the base of the washing machine and the frame of the tub. If one of the spring(s) is loose or broken, this may result in the tub being off center. Other possibilities are, the unit is not level and the load of clothing is not balance evenly in the tub. I personally first verify that the unit is level and the unit is being loaded evenly. If correct, and if I was in your position I would contacting a certified technician to move forward accurately and to assist with the repairs.
