    Hi David, Welcome to Lifehacks. Is your washing machine a top loading model or a front-loading model? Please edit your question to include details as you do not have enough points to comment.

Two common causes are weak vibration dampers or a failing tub bearing. Look up the service manual for your washing machine online, and/or find service videos showing how to check and replace the parts.

Covering the machine will only reduce noise until the washer breaks from the vibration.

  • What the doctor said exactly. Fix this now; perhaps it’s still under warranty? If not, you will pay more to fix it later or replace it completely.

    Another cause can be overloading the machine. Dec 6, 2019 at 13:13

Another common cause is not setting the machine up properly.

  • The machine must be level, check using a spirit level. Adjust the feet if necessary.
  • All 4 feet must be firmly in contact with the ground.

When the machine is not level or it rests on only 3 feet, it'll start walking around during spin-dry cycles.

Sometimes it helps to place the feet on rubber blocks.
