Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Although you say it 'is correctly balanced' I would still gently recommend you try my method to make completely certain ;-0)

It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If your neighbour still complains, it could be that the floor is carrying the vibrations through and there is not a lot that can be done other than moving the washer which, I'm sure, would not be practical!
Good luck,
John C

If it brand new I would call back the service man or store I bought it from..From what your saying..it either has a powerful motor or the drum is out of balance with out any cloths in it....Put it in spin mode with nothing in it...If you get vibrations its one of two things...Either the whole washer isn't leveled correctly or its a unbalanced washer drum...Call them back and tell them either they come out to check it or you want it replaced....Be firm...It'd your money

My frigidaire washer will not spin, why


You will need to check the door switch you should have 1500 ohms no less than 1400. To check remove wire ring from door seal carefully peal rubber seal off flange. The remove 2 screws holding switch and carefully take out. Check with ohmeter. This is a fairly common problem with that model. For the lowest price on parts go to www.appliancehelponline.com

Vibration of Dryer


It may be off one of the guides. Or a balance problem. It may be a bit off balance. Now that you have a new bearing your machine is going to work better. It will spin faster because of the new bearing. When it spins faster you will get vibration. If it is not shaking badly, Try to load your washer balanced. If there are any more questions please feel free to ask. I will help you untill we have this thing solved. Please leave good feedback for me, it means a lot to me, and I will really help you all that I can...

Wm 2487H. My machine is off balance and shake the house terribly bad. It also has a metalic scraping sound sometimes when the drum spins. I just purchased my LG washer and dryer a couple of months ago. I...


Starting in November 2008--LG introduced "square door" model washers.
These washers will (unlike round door models) perform very well on wood floors.
If the WM2487 washer is on a wood floor--even a tiled wood floor--it will be near impossible to get smooth spin performance.
Some homeowners have had success by adding two layers of 3/4 inch wood under the washer AND dryer.
The following steps were taken:
1) Remove washer & dryer
2) Cut & remove any floor covering (bare wood)
3) Locate floor joists with a stud-finder & mark locations at the edge of the flooring--allows finding the joist locations after 3/4 sheet is laid to floor.
4) Add wood glue to floor
5) Place 3/4 inch wood sheet to floor & drive screws thru wood into joists (as many scews as deemed necessary to fully & completely compress wood sheet to existing floor
6) Add wood glue to 1st wood sheet
7) Place 2nd 3/4 inch wood sheet on top of 1st wood layer and drive screws into floor joists.
8) Add molding if desired
9) Re-install washer & dryer and level.
10) Add one heavy towel into washer tub & close door ( this will mimick an off-center load)
11) Press power "on" button
12) Press "Spin Speed" button & select high speed spin option
13) Press "Start" button
14) When * 9 minutes remaining * is displayed--use the flat wrenchette that comes with every LG washer to "tweak" the adjustment of the front leveling legs. This will allow for "fine tuning" adjustment of the front leveling leg(s) to eliminate vibration / noise during the spin cycle. The rear leveling legs DO NOT need further adjustment.
NOTE: Those with pedestals--check the front leveling legs on the washer and on the pedestals (front only) during spin.

Washer vibrates during spin cycle


Front loaders have to be situated on solid flooring such as a basement or they will vibrate.

hi there,

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping/or sound
during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and
redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
