vibrating washing machine

Hi, i've just taken delivery of a new Bosch washing machine, and installed it, having adjusted the feet and locking them off, ensuring the machine is level, i've connected the cold water inlet pipe and the waste water pipe...

Just did my first wash and the machine ending up doing a crazy dance/ whilst on it's spin cycle... I ended up having to wrestle with it to keep it from taking off...

We live on the first floor of a flat, thankfully the neighbours were out, otherwise I can't imagine what they might of thought what was going on upstairs!!!

Did I do something wrong?

How can I prevent it from vibrating so wildly?

The space is pretty tight so once i've pushed it in, I can't get to the rear.

I've included a picture.

The washing machine is on floor boards, which seem pretty solid...

and the space I put the washing machine is where there was one previously when the last tenants were in the property..

thanks for your tips...
