This washer vibrates so strongly during the spin cycle it walks 8-10 inches...it is level, the floor is firm, the drive belt is snug, the springs look like new....what am I missing??? Dampening pads need replacing??????  when I watch the spin cycle the tub never appears to center itself...all assistance is appreciated......doc

Is this the old Dependable Care washer?  Just did three of these for the same complaint and all had the same fix:  adjusting the rear footings.  Seems that no one cinches down the locking nut when they set the footings on these washers.  No self leveling system like on the Whirlpools.  Read this article:

hey,

I've seen lots of them up here in canada. we use the maytag spring upgrade kit on the atlantis style, if that's the type you're doing. the six stronger springs are fixing the out of balance issue, also not using corn starch with the snubber gives a little more traction to help center and keep the tub centered. hope this helps!:D
