Leveled washer gets out of balance when load in spin cycle

A vibration problem is about the hardest thing to diagnose long distance but I will give you the most common things to look for.
Shipping brackets and materials not removed from the machine. You should be able to move the basket around easily by hand. Go over the installation instructions and make sure everything has been removed.
Leveling legs and lock nuts misadjusted or loose. You want the legs adjusted as low to the floor as possible. The higher it sits, the more movement it has.
Weak floor. If you can stomp the floor and have pictures rattle on the wall, you will have vibration problems with the washer. If it is on a laminate hardwood floor, you will have vibration problems. These floors have too much bounce for a washing machine.
The tub support to stiff causing too much vibration to be transferred to the cabinet or not allowing the tub/basket to return to the upright position so that it starts an out of balance spin. Put the washer into a cycle and let it agitate. Before it goes into a spin, open the lid and see if it is leaning awkwardly to one side. If the washer has some years on it, this may be your problem. If you remove the front panel you will see the thick washer the whole unit sits on. If it seems the unit is stiff , you may try spraying a LITTLE wd40 on the base it sits on so it slides easier, but just a little.
Check these things out and you should find your problem.

I have a Maytag front load washer which I can't seem to level. It is on uneven floor, we used the floor leveling legs, but where should we place the level on the top? On the side, which is raised: or in...

You can check the level on the top, across and fore and aft and both must be level. It is actually more important that the machine is standing firmly on all four its feet, you should not be able to rock the machine by hand, and this creates a problem with your if it is not solid. Any vibration on a sprung floor will be amplified and any unbalance in the machine will cause ot to bounce on the floor. Rather than try cushion the vibration, try spread it across the area of the machine by placing a piece of some hard plate under the machine that all four feet stand on and you can place a piece of thin hard carpet under the plate to protect the floor. It will need to be water resistant, so some plastic sheeting about 3/8" to 1/2" should work for that.

I have a brand new washing machine that vibrates across the room on spin cycle. It is level and the load was checked for even distribution. Any ideas

Is the washer on a lino floor? If so you'll have to place some sort of stops on the floor to keep it in place .Unless of course the floor is unlevel and that would be another problem in itself. corner guards are a good bet for sliding problem
