I have a front loading Speed Queen washer, about 10 years old or so. The crew that installed it didn’t really know how and did an awful job. It’s always seemed to clunk and make more noise than I thought is normal.

But today while doing a load, when it started spinning the machine shook violently and moved away from the wall. I watched and held it until the cycle was over.

What is causing this and how can it be fixed? I can’t use the machine in its present state.

I am extremely grateful for any help.

My GE washer has 4 rubber cords tied to the drum and when one snapped it started to vibrate a lot. Check to see how the drum is connected. May be a similar issue

Not sure whether front loaders have them, but top loaders have shipping blocks installed to keep the drum from shifting during shipment. The instruction manual should tell you if yours is equipped as such and how to remove them. It sounds classic.
