The loose motor bolt was the answer! Easy to get to, and such a quick fix to a problem that I'd been putting up with for weeks! Thank you oldturkey03!

@whitekim there are a few things that can cause this. Check the suspension kit of the drum to make sure that it is not excessively loose. Most commonly for this model is a failed rotor position sensor or a cracked stator on the motor. To check that, you will have to check the bottom on your washer. Remove the motor cover and take a good look at the stator,check for cracks. Make sure that the motor bolt is tight

many of the washers have 'shock absorbers' that suspend and dampen the tub motion as it sheds water during the initial spin/rinse minutes. they can actually come apart (much like a piston and a cylinder) from exceeding their range during a violent unbalanced spin. once that happens, every subsequent spin cycle will shake the machine like a cha cha dancer. take the back/bottom off and inspect them. they can usually be repaired on the spot or if damaged, replaced quite cheaply. tubs can have the support bearings go bad as well, rarely, but they do fail occasionally after a few thousand hours of use. all it takes is time and the right parts to fix.
