Soft floor causing machine to shake?

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.

Sounds like all you're left with is replacing the tub support.  Some poop:

 And how do u know if base is bad???
 

 

If you've already changed the snubber and suspension springs, and the floor is solid, washer weight is equally distributed among the four footings, that's all you're left with.  See the tech bulletin I posted for more details.  

 

I was curious if stabilizer bar could play a role in shaking???

 

Define what you're calling the stabilizer bar.

Don't run washer without brake spring, it will spin in agitate and leak! Stabilizer bar just sets rear feet, as mentioned in earlier posts if all four feet are solid on the floor then that bar is ok. If you tilt the washer forward lifting the rear off the floor do the rear feet extend down? This is how you reset the rear feet. When it shakes do all four feet stay on the floor? With the front off and the unit spinning with a load watch machine base for signs of flexing, I believe they started making the bases thicker to help with vibration issues. 4 or 5 years ago i changed a number of base kits that included machine base, springs and snubber.
