Your drum is going unbalanced with the load.
Either you do have an unbalanced load but more likely is that the dampers on the underside of the drum have failed. (they are like shock absorbers).
Normally there are springs at the top the suspend the drum and on the underside there are dampers.
There normally are 2 dampers attached to the drum and the frame.
They are accessed by tipping the machine onto its side.
However the machine is heavy and make sure you disconnect power and water if you want to investigate.
Cost of new dampers are around 50 each.
