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).

Has one of the shocks come loose or broken. Open the back of the machine (power-off of course) and on either side of the drum there is a shock absorber. A visual check should tell you if there is a problem.

My lg front loading washer shakes the entire house. we have a first floor laundry room and i am afraid to operate it. is there anything that can be done to stop this. i use the low spin rinse cycle. thank...


Hi from France,

THE most important thing with a washing machine is to ensure that it is really, really LEVEL.

This is accomplished by adjusting the feet. Often the 2 under the rear are not adjustable but, at the very least, the 2 under the front will be. The machine HAS to be firmly level to operate correctly.

If the machine has always been level and it has just started to 'shake the whole house' as you say it could be that one,or more, of the internal steadying shock-absorbers is malfunctioning, possibly due to it not being level at some time
I would first definitely absolutely ensure that the machine is level and will not rock at all before calling in (probably expensive) engineers.

Here's hoping!

Cheers,
John C

Washing machine - LG TROMM - door is not opening


Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............I'll be back with a further post

Can you adjust the water level on the LG Tromm WM1814CW? The water level when washing and rinsing is so low that the clothes are barely wet when the washer has finished.


No. Water level is not user adjustable. The washer will automatically put in the correct amount (about 3 inches in the bottom of the tub) and adjust for load size and type. This level is all that is needed. The reason the clothes are hardly wet at the end of the cycle is due to the high spin speed (compared to almost all top loading machines). If you want to see how wet the clothes really are, pause the machine mid cycle and the door will unlock and you can see, or select a "no spin" option and see at the end of that cycle. You will use about 12 gallons of water for a large load, vs. about 45 for a top loading machine, so remember to adjust your soap and fabric softener use accordingly. ( one tablespoon detergent and one teaspoon fabric softener maximum per load)

I have an error code on my Tromm front loading washing unit that says LE. What does it mean? It won't complete it's wash cycle.


My husband opened the back panel and gave the drum a spin to get it going again. I believe ours errored due to being unlevel.

LG front loader


There may be a block of styrofoam still under the unit from the packing material or the 4 shipping bolts might still be in the back.
