Hi, This is the HE top load style (Elite Oasis I think). The tub starts to wobble violently during spin cycle with either some or no load in it. I've checked foot adjustment and suspension rods and all seems well. Thank you in advance for any help on this topic.

Check the bolt in the center of the Stator at the very bottom of the washer and make sure it's screwed in tight all the way.

She's tight. Thanks for the tip but I'm bowing out of this one. I hate giving up but everything I've read on this issue sounds like a game of cat and mouse or and expensive process of elimination. I've read it could be the suspension rods (they do seem very weak to me), bad tub or even a software issue.

check to see if the main shaft is rusted, you will need to remove the basket to check. If it is rusted, the basket will hangup between the wash and spin positions.
