Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
This washer was given to me and has been in storage for 7 years.
It could be a few things after sitting for so long 1st drum bearing could have rusted up and needs renewed. 2nd if it has a shocker it could have seized and is not working at all. 3rd the floor its sitting on is not stable and this would cause it to vibrate bad also. Best getting it checked or buy a new one.

First, check to make sure you aren't loading the washer excessively. Many times it is an unbalanced load. Second, check to see if the washer is level. The feet are adjustable and allow you to level the washing machine. While checking the level, make sure the floor underneath is stable as well. Lastly, if these do not help, you may need to have the dampners checked (these are like shock absorbers and minimize the vibration of the drum).

SOURCE: vibration during spin cycle
Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete
and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in
excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

This is a mis-direction. I was informed that I needed to reinforce my floor to reduce the vibration . The problem persisted. Then it turned into a loud roaring when the washer went into spin cycle. I have disassembled the machine to find out that the root of the problem was caused by a leak occuring where the inner tub's spline shaft goes through the bearing assembly in the back. the leak degraded the bearings to the point that caused the vibration to get worse and thus started a cycle of increasing distruction to the bearings untill the leak made its way onto and inside the electrical connectors for the stator. This shorted out the motherboard and totally distroys the machine to the point where the parts are more expensive to fix it then the machine is worth. To repair it you need to get the service manual to find out how to take it apart. After getting the inner and outter tub removed from the machine you need to totally dissemble the tubs so the rear outter tub that holds the bearings can be replaced. To troubleshoot if you have the same problem I had take the back plate off the washer and inspect the area at the bottom of the rotor. If you see any rust or water discoloration trails then start taking the machine apart before the motor shorts out the motherboard and kills the machine.

What's the exact model of your washing machine? I'll need this to get you exact part numbers.
If you're looking for a quick and cheap fix that works. Try installing a rubber anti-vibration pad under the washer. I've had the best luck with a pad called Silent Feet. They are pretty hard to find in stores but Amazon.com carries the full line of Silent Feet anti-vibration pads. They will provide you with the best results short of replacing the full shock isolation assembly in the washer. And they cost a lot less.
