You might have a broken shock. There are two shocks located inside the washer that support the drum during spin and agitation. They can break from over loading the machine. If you take the back off the washer you will be able to see the two shocks, one on each side. Check to see if they are broken, cracked, or even if they are not stiff anymore. It will be a good idea to just replace them as this is most likely the problem. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck and I am glad that I could help.

My LG Wahining machine is making a rattling noise and will not spin or drain.

For the washer to spin, it must first drain the water out of the tub. Since you are hearing a rattling noise, and your washer will not drain, most likely the problem is the drain motor itself. The impeller wears out on the shaft, and start to wobble, and make a vibrating/rattling noise.

Washer wobbles terribly at high spin cycle. Its legs ARE BALANCED, this just started happening one day. The geek squad replaced the 4 shocks and it still wobbles like crazy.I had my warranty company sen...

the washer requires a structurally sound floor for shake-free operation. anything other than a cement/concrete slab will shake. even on a tile floor there is slight shaking. a vinyl over plywood floor just won't cut it. a pedistal makes matters worse; as you're bringing the center of gravity up and away from floor.

LG wm2277hw front load shakes violently

Barry The repairman was right. The drum is out of balance because of the load amount .Thed clothes or items need to be distributed around the drom rather than just throwing in. When it comes to spin the imbalance causes the machine to shake and move across the laudry.

As it sometimes works This is probably when you are not doing a heavy load of washing, so it appears to work OK.
Pack it with less, also adjust the front legs a full turn higher than the rear so prevent walking when it spins.If you cant find the spanner that was included , just use an adjustable one.
