Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
I personally feel there is something that these washing machine companies have to do in regards to vibration during spin cycle.
There are so many solutions :)
1. Balance the load of clothes when you put it in. If it's thumping during the spin cycle, stop it, open it up, move some clothes from the fuller side to the less full side, and see if that helps.
2. Replace the springs inside the machine which suspend the washing drum (open it up, take a look, it won't bite). Perhaps they're all saggy and this is permitting excessive vibration.
3. Put something under the machine to stop it from transmitting the vibrations to the floor of the house. A old sock folded several times and placed under each of the four feet may help. Rubber or foam (piece of an old yoga mat?) will also work.
However, the best solution would be in case all above would "NOT" help :)
In the market, there are anti ******** pads
Make sure you have properly installed the machine...
Check the procedure :-
Other things that you need to check....
Most washing machines have a large weight attached to the drum, usually a concrete block. Most washing machines have a large weight attached to the drum, usually a concrete block. It's supposed to prevent too much vibration. Check that one or more of the bolts holding it on haven't come loose.
There are cases when people installing it hadn't removed the restraining bolts that were locking down the shock absorbers. Oops!
One other thing: some front loaders by spec are only supposed to installed on concrete slabs. You can ignore that (we do), but if you have a front-loader like that, you are going to have some vibration no matter what you do.
I hope this would help you.

Tips for a great answer:
First check if the machine is level .Also makes sure you do not have an unbalanced load. Lint filter between the tubs is loose/broken, tub nut and drive block is worn, bad brake, worn spin tub are some various reasons when washer shakes in spin cycle.
