The first thing I would do is make sure the washer is properly leveled and the front leg nuts are tighten as described in the Installation Manual.

Make sure the clothes inside the washer are balanced during the spin cycle.

Post the results.

Remove the washer cabinet (instructions attached) and check the tub support and the suspension springs. Post the results.

Here are the break down diagrams for the Whirlpool washer Model LA5558XTW2
