Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
Same problem--so much so that my downstairs kitchen FLOODED the first time I used the LG washer (it walked off the platform and fell forward, somehow the door opened just enough to let out LOTS of water). My husband easily fixed it by placing a thick rubber pad under the washer, in addition to leveling it. It is not bolted down to his "homemade" platform, but he has reinforced the platform to such a degree that it is sturdier than the platform drawers sold by the company and sturdier than our 100 year old wood floor. Not a problem since--it is the machine I always wanted--quiet, efficient, NO vibration at all now, works perfectly in our upstairs bathroom.

The best way to fix this problem is to adjust the front legs while the machine is spinning a full wash load. Put in a load of clothes and run the machine to get the clothes nice and wet. It will take about 5 minutes to get them completely wet. Next, turn the washer off. Now, turn the washer back on and push the spin button to select the extra fast speed. You washer will go into a drain mode and then begin to toss the load into a balance spin mode. Once the washer is spinning the clothes, check the balance of the unit by pushing the front left corner of the washer towards the right rear corner and right front corner towards the left rear corner. If the sound of the washer quiets down on one side vs the other side, adjust the front leg to quiet that side. Do not attempt to adjust the rear legs as they do not require adjustments at all. Everything adjusts on the front legs.
This procedure works if the floor is sturdy enough. If the floor is old and the wood is weak, it will not work.

Due to weight and normal motion during wash/spin a very sturdy floor is necessary under front loads also some floors are a little slick and sliding may occur ck for weak floor and maybe some kind ok rough cushion under feet to reduce sliding also if on pedistals even more vibration may occur be sure all screws in pedistal are secure usually 4 from top onto bottom of washer also adj legs to lower unit as close to floor as possible and tighten lock nuts
