Question about Washing Machines
What you describe sounds kind of normal, the drum is suspended by three hangers and is allowed to seek it's own "center". If the machine is not LEVEL, you will see what you describe. Even so, not necessarily an issue, unless the drum assembly hits the machine housing.
Try placing a level on the machine and level it up. THE FINAL step is to tilt the machine forward, releasing both back feet, and let the machine back down. This should set the rear "self leveling" legs, correctly. The machine should be stable.
The ability to move the drum side to side by hand is normal and okay.
