Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

If the unit is vibrating or shaking too much, the first thing you want to do is check the springs to make sure one of the 6 springs didn't break. If all that checks good, the snubber pad ring which the tub suspension sits on has worn down and needs to be replaced. The part is only about $5 and below is a link to the part.

And below is a video that shows you how to remove the front panel of the washer so you can check the springs as well as replace the snubber ring if needed.
