I had a client's machine whose shocks and springs looked OK but it still vibrated badly. (But I didn't unhook the shocks to feel them). I had success in solving this by adjusting the feet. I lowered (retracted) the back feet all the way, and adjusted the front feet so the front of the machine was slightly higher than the back.

    Also inspect the feet on the four legs. If the machine had vibrated badly due to a broken shock, spring, or being out of level, it may have damaged the rubber on the feet, especially if it was on a rough cement floor. The feet may be ripped to bare metal, providing no cushion. The machine would still vibrate if the other problems were corrected.

I would check to make sure the machine is level. Check and see that all four legs are firmly planted on the floor with the lock nuts securing the legs. Open the door and look at the wash tub. It should sit centered in the door. It should not sag in any direction. Then remove the bottom panel and check the shocks to see if any one is broken. Hope this helps you.
