I recently changed my axle from my rear hub. While changing the axle I had to almost take everything apart from the hub. But after I changed the axle my hub slightly shakes at one point. Does this mean that the sealed bearing has not properly flushed inside the hub or I need to tighten the cone bearing more?

could be a few things. Ive noticed when rebuilding hubs if the bearings are not fully in, you will have a side to side play. Even if you mount it on your bike and tighten it fully, it'll still have the play. Id say check the bearings, give them another hit or so to make sure they are properly seated..

make sure the bearings are pressed, the nuts are tight

Use washers that will fit over your axle and are slightly smaller then the diameter of the hubs bearings use them like a press and they will seat your bearings correctly.

Try to tighten down the cone nuts pretty good. Always solves the problem. And if there is no stopping point for the cone nuts, or if the cone nuts start seizing up the bearings, something is either missing, broken, or blown out.
