Question about LG TROMM WM2688H 4.0 cu.ft. Front Loading SteamWasher
This machine is 3 months old and is on the main floor with trusses so there is some flexing in the floor. When this machine goes into the spin cycle, it thumps and vibrates very loudly.It actually moves out from the wall and causes the dryer to move as well! We have had no problem with top loader machines. We had the repair guy there and said there was nothing he could do. Is there anything wrong or is this just a poorly designed machine. We do have it up on a pedestal---designed for this machine. Is this contributing to problem? Would putting this machine on a heavy rubber pad help? We also have the problem of water collecting in the gasket of the door---and smelling? Any suggestions would be great! Thanks
Try Ke shake away pads. i found them at lowes for $30. Solved my problem with a front load pedestal. Shook the pictures off the wall in the room next door. Best money I ever spent.

>>> Vibration<<< There are rubber pad available for the feet of the machine if the unit is on a tile or wooden floor, they will help prevent slipping, but do not prefectly prevent vibrations caused by flooring that is not strong enough. If the floor is vibrating with the machine, the vibrations are not being caused by a problem with the machine regardless of Top/ front load washer, but rather by the flooring. Because the drum spins in an up and down rotation there is more pressure put on the floor during the machine?s operation. Because of this, it is necessary for the flooring to be secure enough to support the machine?s operation. If the unit is on a wooden floor (or tile floor with wooden subflooring) then vibrations are more likely to occur. This is because wood is a pliable surface. So when the unit goes into the spin cycle, spinning in an up and down rotation, the wooden floor absorbs the energy and carries it through out the floor, even throughout the house. To minimize or eliminate vibrations on wooden floors, it is necessary that the floors be reinforced to support the machine?s operation. On tile floors, there is a greater chance of slipping, due to the surface of the tile. >>>

Thick rubber mat under machine will help, as for cleaning the unit use afresh its a new front load cleaner also keep the door open when not in use (no drum light models only).
