What type of floor is it sitting on?
Is it on the main floor of on a cement basement floor?

About how old is it?

Is it walking or gliding across floor? I have seen machines glide across floors. If that is the case,install 2 pieces of nonslip tape under the 2 front leg pads (the tape they use for steps to make them nonslip )  Solved many problems on Maytags that way.

it is walking across the floor not gliding, but i have thought of some kind of way to stabilize it. The gripers on the botton of the legs are smooth now from age......

Inspect the rubber foot pads under each foot for wear.
Check the inner tub for movement.
It should not be loose.
Check for loose play in your belts.
