Question about LG TROMM WM2688H 4.0 cu.ft. Front Loading SteamWasher
We have leveled it checked pedstals and it also has no shipping bolts what else can we do to correct vibration?
Front loaders are prone to vibration problems. Don't want to go into the technical details of why, but it's important that they're placed on very solid surface (preferably concrete or tile), and checked that their feet have been adjusted so that the machine is level. Unfortunately, most people don't have a concrete pad for their washer. One simple option to consider is to provide dampening of the vibrations. This can be done very simply as shown here. The main thing to keep in mind with this solution is that it is merely trying to dampen the vibrations. Don't be too forceful in your own solution (think lightly touching the top of a vibrating tuning fork with your finger to stop the tone).

Vibration problem fixed!! If your washer vibrates excessively, check to be absolutely sure that whoever insalled it removed the drum locking bolts (4 big bolts on back of machine). My store installer didn't ,and the machine danced across the room. Second appliance repair fella (he was here for something else) removed the bolts, and voila - problem solved. Problem is he says in the three times I used it before the bolts were removed, I may have done irreparable damage (imagine the resistance with the washer trying to spin while bolts have locked it down to prevent this action). So I'll go back for a replacement, but in the meantime, it works and vibration is entirely reasonable, and my machine is on a crappy wood floor (not concrete).

SOURCE: Walking during the spin cycle
Is your floor level, first thing. Okay, the rear 2 legs are not adjustable so leave it. The front 2 legs should be screwed up (ie the machine should be at the lowest level in front) and there are check nuts to tighten inside the body of the machine. Check the machine it it rocks by using your hand against it. Adjust accordingly, this is if your floor is not too good. You shd not hv any problem. If the rocking persists check inside machine, behind after getting he plug off wall, maybe shockabsorbers hv come off, springs?.....
and rate me please if helped.............

Your load is unbalanced, at least that is what is sounds like. Have you taken out all the shipping bolts?
These washers and dryers hold very little clothing, 3-4 pair of jeans or less if the person is really large and maybe three regular sized thick bath towels since they weight so much when wet. You must make sure you are not overloading your machines when in use.
Good luck and if you keep having problems I would take a look at the manual and call customer service to report this issue to them. Make sure you get a repair number for your records.

What you are hearing is what they refer to as "Water Hammer'.. and aside from the noise.. it probably won't do much damage however home improvement stores such as Home Deot and Lowes sell add on devices that are installed onto your supply lines to absorb the shock when water is cycled on and off... You'll need to tell them exactly what size pipe you have and ( depending on how familiar you are with plumbing) you may want to hire a plumber to install.. They may have a water hammer add on that fits onto the screw on water lines.. Hope this helps..

SOURCE: Terrible vibration on washer
Remove the shipping bolts from the back of the washer. Please see the instruction manual for more information, but there is severe vibration if you don't remove them. It seems a lot of people overlook this step.
