    Firstly, is your washing machine level? If so, you may need to be take into account which clothes you are washing and that they are distributed inside evenly ( balanced out) especially blue jeans. Hake sure that the wait bands are placed in opposite sides of the drum and that should reduce the vibration.

      Also check your supports for your home. Over time it too may have shifted a bit and may also assist in the shaking, but you wouldn't know as this is the only large appliance that could shake one's home.

    I agree. Make sure the washer is level front to back and side ti side. You can dampen the shaking by putting rubber furniture pads under the feel of the washer.

    Tony - are you overloading your washer? I know that my washer shakes a lot when there is too much weight in it.

    Make sure the washer is level. I know, when my washer spins on high, you can feel it a little in my stick built house. These new washers spin out a lot more water than old ones did, so they spin harder.
