    I'm concerned about this bracket you removed. Were you following some written instructions?

Nothing is wrong w/ the unit. It must be solid on the floor with no movement in the feet relative to the flooring or it will rock when spinning. Floor is simply not solid enough. Use slower spin speed to alleviate issue or relocate it. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.

When a spinning machine reaches a certain rpm, that frequency will sometimes conflict with the natural frequency of the structure it is connected to.

Does the washer do this regardless of load? It could be the machine itself has an issue. Where is the washer sitting, on a wooden floor? Can you stiffen underneath with cross beams?

Most important is to know if the machine displays this problem regardless of load.

How do i tumble dry only on a lg hover wash machine


Washing machines don't have tumble dry. That would be a dryer. The best you can do with a washer is spin cycle.

Vibrates when it spins


Here are a few quick facts on washing machine vibration.
  1. All washing machines and dryer vibrate. Dryers usually have less vibration than washers because the load is only wet clothes (as opposed to a drum of water and clothes). Front loading washing machines cause high frequency vertical oscillation while top loading washers usually have horizontal oscillation.
  2. Almost all front loading washing machines are not recommended for use on standard joist-construction floors (most common floor type, compared to a concrete slab sub-floor). Manufactures like GE, LG, Maytag, Samsung, Whirlpool, Kenmore, Bosch and more, all recommend installing a pad like Silent Feet under the washing machine to absorb the vibration.
  3. The only alternative to using Silent Feet pads to prevent structural damage is costly upgrading of the sub-floor. This usually involves adding a second layer of plywood sub-floor and adding sister boards to the rafters that support the floor. But even this won't reduce the amount of vibration noise that you hear. Sub-floor upgrades can cost thousands of dollars.
  4. Vibration can also cause appliance "walking" (unwanted movement) usually during the spin cycle. Simply installing a pad designed to prevent walking can solve this problem and mean that you'll never have to reposition your washer after every load again. Both Original Silent Feet and Anti-Walk Silent Feet prevent walking, however for washers that move a lot or stacked units it is recommended that you install Anti-Walk Silent Feet for the best results.
You were not specific in either type or model. I hope the above information helps. Also, the size of the loads plays a great part in how a machine functions. have a nice day

LG Washing Machine makes a groaning sound.


Its most propably bearings on the drum,normally the seal in front of the bearings is leaking ,allowing water into the bearings, which destructs them..
It is bigger job to take the drum apart but do'able with basic tools.
If possible, source the seal and bearings beforehand.

Another factor can be overloading,try lightening the loads first..

hi linda from what you describe? the machine does wash cycle? but won't spin cycle? if the machine is a couple of yrs old ? it may well be the motor that runs machine is in need of some new brushes fitting ? they are not expensive and may be worn too low to activate the higher revolutions needed for spin cycle it is not a difficult job to drop motor off and check/replace if you have a good male/ friend? with elec competence ? have found this problem on other machines and most recent zanusi cost £5 for 2x new brushes as apposed to the £££££s the lady was estimated for a timer ? by plumber so why not check it out b4 you part with money ? best wishes/luck

LG Direct Drive WM-16220FD loud vibration during spin cycle


the pump hose is knocking if you can unplug the machine and tilt the machine on its back you can see the hose get a cable tie big one you can cable tie it down that would stop it from moving that's why its knocking if the pump is not on that side then your suspension leg is on its way out meaning you will have to call your local second hand shop to have a look but be for you do have a loo your self save money
