The outer tub is suspended by either heavy rubber bands or springs. One of these may be loose or broken.
You should be able to see them by removing the lower rear panel but if not, check on the Sears link below to see if they have your machine in their library. If they do, there will be an exploded line illustration of your machine that will show these points.
If they have it, you can also order parts through them if available.

Vibrates real bad in spin mode.


Check to see if the washer is level, and adjust the leveling legs if necessary. Always lock the legs in place after adjustment to keep them from getting loose as they do work themselves loose during heavy vibration conditions.
The following items could cause the vibration problem:
1. Clutch assembly
2. Vibration dampers that support the tub. Should one or more be faulty, always replace all four simultaneously.

Bad vibration when washer is spinning.


If the washer is vibrating, it's not sitting solidly on the floor. Move it until it sits solidly. If needed, adjust the leveling legs. It might also vibrate if the shipping blocks and bolts weren't removed when the washer was installed, or the wash load isn't distributed evenly.
If all this looks good, check the shock absorber to see if one has broken.

How to keep the floor from vibrating while in spin cycle


Most likely cause of vibration is that the washer isn't leveled. Use a torpedo or carpenters level and adjust the support feet on the washer to get it level. If it still makes the floor vibrate, you may have a soft floor. You could then try putting a piece of 3/4 plywood under the washer to help support the weight.

Washing machine has a seizure during the spin cycle.


Try leveling the washer so that it is about half a bubble biased towards the rear. This usually helps front loading washers balance properly even if the installation instructions say that it should be perfectly level. This can also aid draining problems.
Also, some newer front loading washing machines are simply prone to dramatic vibration even when they is "anti-vibration" or "vibration reduction" systems. You can never go wrong installing an anti-vibration pad under the washer. Good Vibrations Inc, Kellett Enterprises and The Vibration Solution all have good products. The Vibration Solution seems to have figured out the best solution and offers excellent support and return policies.

If all else fails call the retailer and ask for an exchange.
