Washing Machine vibration

We have just bought a new washing machine in replacement to our Zanussi Washer dryer that was very noisy, slow on washing, had a couple of intermittent faults and we noticed there was an awful lot of vibration once it was on a spin (1200 rpm).
Now I have installed the new machine (a Miele), although it is much much quieter, even on spin, there is still a lot of vibration. The machine itself doesnt seem to vibrate that much to the touch but all the kitchen units/worktops/sink etc shake and we can feel the vibration upstairs (lounge is directly above the kitchen).
I am thinking that the vibration is caused by the fact that the machine isnt on a concrete floor. It is currently on top of laminate flooring, which in turn is on top of wooden floorboards. Would I be right in my thinking. Is there anything we could do to cut down the vibration?
It is a marked improvement on the Zanussi for noise and a little better for vibration but wondered if there is any further we can do?
Thanks
Steve

I have just had a thought. I dont think that the laminate is glued/fixed to the floor. Think I need to go and screw it down to the boards below and see if that helps. Steve
