We recently moved and since then my machine will actually walk across the floor while in the spin cycle. I made sure it was level and it will do it without a load of clothes. What could have been knocked out of whack when I moved it?
Another suggestion, I don't know anything about snubbers and all that. But I had a few machine want to walk across the floor. Several repairmen and other people had told me to buy a peice of plywood, roughly 27"x27" and put it under the machine. It worked for me. I guess the idea is that the subfloor in your new house flexes cuasing the machine lift and walk. I have heard of brand new machines doing this in houses with certain floors. There is an antiwalk kit that is sold too the kit is very similar to a horse pad, a thick very stiff compressed rubber mat. The kit being a solution to aesthetic problem of the plywood. (if you think the plywood is ugly)

Re: machine vibrates terrible on spin cylce
Mom2, sounds like you are going to need a new snubber kit. Maytag had a service flash on this, regarding vibration in spin. The snubber kit includes 6 new springs along with the snubber. This can be a bear of a job so you might want to call Maytag and inquire about SF-26-756. It should be covered. This is for model pav3200aaw, but there is a bunch of others too. It's possible that during your move the snubber became off center. If your basket is leaning to one side, you can be assured this is the problem...Catriver..post back.

Have you removed the bolts at the back of the machine. they are there to help stop it getting damaged in transit but if left in when in use it vibrates violently and moves a lot read manual and look at back to see if bolts are left in and remove them if so. hope this helps.
make sure you loads are balanced, put heaviest clothes in first... if you can rock it by hand then the legs are not adjusted properly. If you stand 2 feet away from front of machine, jump up and down and see it move the floor is soft and you need 2 sheets of plywood to make 1 1/2 inches put under the machine
Is your floor level, first thing. Okay, the rear 2 legs are not adjustable so leave it. The front 2 legs should be screwed up (ie the machine should be at the lowest level in front) and there are check nuts to tighten inside the body of the machine. Check the machine it it rocks by using your hand against it. Adjust accordingly, this is if your floor is not too good. You shd not hv any problem. If the rocking persists check inside machine, behind after getting he plug off wall, maybe shockabsorbers hv come off, springs?.....
This machine uses an auto-adjust for the back portion and they tend to get stuck. Since it sits on a common chassis, insert two standard legs in the back. There are threaded holes that the legs go in. Rebalance the machine. Your problem should stop.
