Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
My wife and I have had our LG front loader w/d for about 2 years now. We have had a huge problem with the washing machine vibrating the heck out of the floor and making a bunch of racket. I just installed some anti-vibration pads which has quieted the racket quite a bit. However, in high spin mode it is still making alot of noise and is vibrating quite a bit. We moved 5 months ago and I do not think the movers secured the drum. Could the drum be out of balance? How can I fix this?!?! Thanks!
More than likely it did not get reinstalled right after the move. All four of the leveling legs must be firmly touching the floor. If one is even the thickness of a piece of paper off the floor it will start to rock during spin and the problem just amplifies itself. Make sure it's perfectly level and that all the feet are firmly on the floor.

This machine needs a solid floor to stand on. Any movement on the floor starts a vicious runaway cycle of vibration which is not only very irritating, but it is no good for the machine itself.
Your machine is 2 years old, so I doubt that it could be the shock absorbers giving trouble.

We had the same issue with our Whirlpool and LG front loader washer. Here is how we had to solve the problem.
The floor was vibrating so much did the spin cycle, so I call a freind of mine over that is contruction engineer. He suggesting putting 2x10 blocks between the floor joist in a ten foot section. Retested, this reduced the the amount a vibration, then we screwed a sheet of ¾" Plywood on the bottom side of the joist. This cured the vibration. If you read the installation instructions, they only talk about installing the front loader washers on solid surfaces (concrete) to avoid vibration.
I hope this helps.
