I take it that it hasn't always done this or you would have had warranty work.

Try running it on spin cycle without being loaded, just lowest water setting, and after it gets up to speed open the lid and see if it is running concentric or eccentric.

Need the model number of the washer to know what type of suspension system it uses.

Wandering washing machine


did you do anything recently such as move it out? Tipped it back to clean underneath? New vinyl or tile floor? Sometimes suspension springs rust and break, is it banging on the sides when it spins?
