If its a newer model you can have a suspension spring off on the side of the tub or also the thin small spring towards the back...  Its not that common that the units have problems with what they call a skate plate or the suspension pads .... check all the springs that mount around the tub first   there are 3  ... and then check the skinny spring toward the back   if all those are intact then you may want a fix for the skate plate and pads  ... Whirlpool advises against this but you can sand the skate plate and the pads with some rough sand paper and then wipe off with a paper towel with windex on it   ....  basically if ya just sand the front two your good the pads are light brownish in color and sit under the triange  (generally dark brown plate)........

If the unit is very old then what you are looking for is what the call a snubber and plate issue    .... for that pop the top and you will see that at about 2 o' clock    .... you can pull the light brown snubber pad out of the tension bar   (sometimes there white also )     and take it outside and rough it up on the concrete and sand the  metal pad that its sits on .....  

 

I dont know what model ya have so Im covering the old and the new ...to some extent ....

Also if the unit is on the wood floor that can be an issue  ... if the dryer starts shaking in the room next to it many times its just a floor issue   and not your unit   .....

 

 

On rare cases on newer models there is also a problem in the tub ring   it contains basically water and if its cracxked its a problem because its a tub balance ring ,,,,,

What kind of floor is it setting on?

Try putting them on some of the anti-slide things made for washers and dryers, they will prevent them from walking across smooth surfaces, this may be your problem, the slick floor. I have read this solved the problems on the Maytag washers that would walk across the room.

I've had this on a tiled floor too, solution was one of the thin exercise mats like you'd put under a treadmill.
