Ok, first check level at front, left to right should be level, then tilt the machine forward moving rear feet off the floor, dont use the console as it is fragile, grapple at the steel frame below. You should hear a sound of racheting, This is the rear feet adjusting, do this twice. Now if you dont hear this sound and the machine is new, check for a yellow plastic tab, shipping pin to remove, or you have a Cabrio or Oasis. If this dont work you will need to support the floor to stabilize the machine.

Washer has been shaking ever snice it was moved to have new floor installed.


Most likely your washer is not balanced evenly on the floor; get a level and level the washer accordingly. You can use shims to get it leveled. Also Home Depot or Lowes Home Improvement stores have something called Vibration Pads. I would take care of it before using your washer again since the shaking might cause problems to the actual washing machine.

Washer shakes bad


You probably have already checked this but since you do not say.........

Is the unit solid and level on the floor........with the leveling legs turned down as low as possible with the lock nuts tight.......?

If you put a glass of water on the dryer next to the washer, can you see the water vibrating when the washer is in spin? You may have weak floors.........Cement floor is the best floor, after that you need to check........

You do not say there is any noise, is the unit walking on the floor?

When new and installing there are shipping bolts and or straps to remove before using......

good luck,
enjoy the weather

4 month old washer is so loud it sounds like someone dropping a trash can to the pavement from 5 feet high


Check to make sure it's level. Number one cause of vibration is not being level. Number two cause is soft floor and what I call "Sympathetic vibration" where the floor shakes a bit and it seems like it's in time with the vibration on the washer. It then magnifies the vibration and makes it worse.

If it's level and on a solid floor, you need to get it serviced under warrenty.

Washer shakes terribly in spin cycle


Does the floor or the walls shake? If they do you have to beef up the flooring under your washer, with blocks between the floor joists, piers, or sistering of the joists. If there is no shaking of the floor or walls, and your washer is solid on the ground, leveled and not rocking, then it is your washer. Lg has problems with too much vibration in their washers. Check to make sure that your lint filter/coin catcher is clean. Open the door in the bottom front, put a towel down to catch the water, Unplug the washer, and unscrew the large plastic screw that is the filter for your washer. If this has debris in it clean it out completely. Look in the hoses also, if your water drain is restricted by lint or coins or other debris, the washer has clothes in it that are wetter and heavier than they should be, and this will cause sever vibration. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
