I have a Maytag model n. LAT8426AAE that shakes during the spin cycle to the extent that it "walks" across the floor. Several repairmen have told us that our problem is the due to uneven legs and / or an unbalanced floor. However, the floor is perfectly balanced and we have adjusted the legs on numerous occasions, making sure that the machine is perfectly balanced. This causes me seriously question whether those are the actual problems.

Is there a bolt or a balencing mechanism within the washer that has come undone that might be a factor? Can you tell me how I can fix it at home?

I would appreciate any help you can give me to aleviate this problem. Thanks! :)

Have them examine the base of the washer, that holds the tub, for cracks in the legs, this is a known issue with Maytag washers.

If I was on this call  first I would make sure the lock nuts were tight on the legs, second I would check the damper pads on the base , but if you have had several repair technician's tell you the floor is the problem because it's not level and it's been scooting around on the floor check those rubber feet on the bottom of the legs, they should have nubs on the bottom and not smooth. make sure the washer is level and the legs are not all the way out like stiltes, except for the legs that have to be down to level the machine and make sure you tighten those lock nut's/, but my suspicions still suspect those damper pads. Also check those base support brackets that hold the tub and make sure they are tight.  O. K. Pegi your turn ,:Dsome pictures would probably help
