Spin Balance Samsung WF218ANWXAA0000 Side Loading Washer

Samsung WF218ANWXAA0000 Washer -- Side Loading Washer

I think the washer is pretty level, maybe not perfect but within specs of a framing level. Spin is relatively smooth except for 5-10 seconds at the 8-9 minute mark (remaining in cycle) of an 11 spin minute cycle (when it is starting to gear up). At this the point, the unit starts walking with only slightly to moderate shaking and knocking at the approximate right side (rear to middle) of the washer. Quickly goes away and runs great till it shuts down. Unit is located on finished concrete floors and may be slipping on slick surface. It will walk several inches to feet. Please comment, provide problem(s) and recommendations. Thanks

As the clothes flop around in basket there will be some movement. Is this something new or did you just get washer? Level doesn't mean much level to eye is good but most important is that all 4 legs are solid on floor and the floor is solid enough. If there is any wiggle in legs it will shake. I always level washer by putting 3 to 4 large towels in washer and let them get wet. Put it in spin and wait till it gets to high spin. Turn the easiest front leg. if out of level you will see it smooth out. Could take a little as a 1/2 turn.
