Indesit washing machine vibrating the floor and shaking lots

The vibrations that come off this washing machine shake the flat.

The washing machine came with the house, and has been the same for the past year. So i don't know how old it is, but it certainly doesn't look ancient.

When i run a spin with nothing in it, it's not too bad at all.
With a very light load the vibration is very noticable.
With a normal load it's terrible.

I've tried levelling the machine, however, it is under a worktop so I do the best i can. I do think it's quite level.

It's on tiles on a suspended wood floor. I've also put thick carpet tiles under the feet to try and dampen the vibration but it barely helps.

Could anything be worn on the machine, I doubt it's just the suspended wood floor?

My whirlpool AWM 6140/3 vibration problem turned out to be a loose top weight.Unfortunately I'd already spent £70 on new suspension legs :!:
Hi and thank you for the help so far.

A stupid question, but I can't work out how to open the top of the machine.

There's two screws either side, and a sort of plastic push-hold thing.

Or should i remove the back?

It's a WIA111

It's located under the worktop, and the hoses restrict how far i can pull out the machine. The hoses connect somewhere behind the cabinets, so i really do not want to disconnect them.

Thank you for the help.
