Hi girls, we got a new washing machine yesterday and when it spins its so loud and its jumping out from under the counter in the utility. Never had any bother with our old one!! The vibrations out of it are mad. Anyone ever had this?

You could put something underneath it so that it's up against the counter and there's no room for it to be dancing?!

Check the back for 3 or 4 big massive screws. They are installed to stop the drum spinning during transport but have to be removed before use. If still in, the whole machine goes mental and it isn't good!
