My machine shakes violently during the spin cycle

I recently purchased the washer/dryer for my new home in Queretaro Mexico. during the installation I ensured that all feet were well adjusted and the machine is level. Although when it goes into the spin cycle it shakes violently, moving all around and banging the walls. I really need someone to come to my home and fix properly. I think something is wrong on the inside, I have had the machine 4 weeks, purchased from SAMS.

Answer: 
LG Advocate is correct see Installation Instructions in Manual under Unpacking for images:
IMPORTANT: To prevent internal damage
during transport, the washer is equipped with
4 shipping bolts and plastic retainers. These
bolts and retainers MUST be removed before
operating the washer.
• Failure to remove shipping bolts and retainers
may cause severe vibration and noise, which can
lead to permanent damage to the washer. The
cord is secured to the back of the washer with
a shipping bolt to help prevent operation with
shipping bolts in place.

Answer: 
Check that the "packaging support" material has been removed from the underside of the unit. As shown below, the packing support piece sits on the base packing piece and the washing machine sits on top. The packing support piece fits up into the machine and nestles against the bottom of the tub. If this is not removed, vibration will occur. It is white and made of foam.

Check that all four shipping bolts have been removed. These bolts, as shown below, screw through the back of the unit and into the back of the outer tub. This secures the tub during transit, so it does not bounce around and damage internal parts. If these bolts are not removed, the unit will vibrate, even "walk" across the floor.

If the unit is mounted on a pedestal, check that all four pedestal brackets are attached. There should be two on each side. The brackets attach to the pedestal with two screws each and to the unit with a very strong adhesive. Remove the screws from the pedestal brackets. If the brackets come off, check to see if the paper over the adhesive is removed (if not, remove it). Reattach the brackets and press firmly on the top of the bracket to adhere the brackets to the washer. Rub back and forth, firmly.
Washing Machine
Vibrations
For new installations, check the following:

1. Check that the "packaging support" material has been removed from the underside of the unit. As shown below, the packing support piece sits on the base packing piece and the washing machine sits on top. The packing support piece fits up into the machine and nestles against the bottom of the tub. If this is not removed, vibration will occur. It is white and made of foam.

2. Check that all four shipping bolts have been removed. These bolts, as shown below, screw through the back of the unit and into the back of the outer tub. This secures the tub during transit, so it does not bounce around and damage internal parts. If these bolts are not removed, the unit will vibrate, even "walk" across the floor.

3. If the unit is mounted on a pedestal, check that all four pedestal brackets are attached. There should be two on each side. The brackets attach to the pedestal with two screws each and to the unit with a very strong adhesive. Remove the screws from the pedestal brackets. If the brackets come off, check to see if the paper over the adhesive is removed (if not, remove it). Reattach the brackets and press firmly on the top of the bracket to adhere the brackets to the washer. Rub back and forth, firmly.

For all, check the following:

1. Vibrations only occur on some, but not all loads.

If this only happens on some loads, it could the load type rather than the washer.

Check if the load is small or large, consists of mixed fabric types (such as jeans and t-shirts), or is a large item (sheets, blankets, etc.)

Items in the drum may not distribute evenly across the surface of the drum which can cause vibrations. If this seems to be the case, pause the cycle and move the clothes around and restart. It may be necessary to use a lower spin speed to minimize this.

If your unit has the SpinSense Feature, activate it. This will allow the unit to detect vibrations in the unit sooner and accommodate for them.

2. Are the clearance requirements at the sides, back and top met?

The unit requires one inch clearance on top, one inch at the sides (in addition to requirements of a companion appliance), and four inches at the back. If clearance requirements are not met, vibrations can result.

3. Check for foreign objects under the feet of the unit. If there is anything under any of the feet, this will prevent the unit from being properly leveled. Vibrations and slipping may occur. If an object (such as cardboard or wood) is under the foot because the unit is not level, then the foreign object should be removed and the unit leveled.

4. Make sure that the unit is leveled. When the unit is in a spin cycle, make very slight adjustments to the feet. Even a quarter of a turn can stop the unit from vibrating.

Answer: 
It's not an error. It stands for Cool Down. After the wash/dry cycle is complete, the machine goes into cool down mode if you don't remove the clothes right away. This just means that it spins them once about every five minutes for up about four hours, I think, to keep the clothes from wrinkling. Just press the play/pause button to stop this cycle and remove the clothes.

Answer: 
The ‘Cd’ code is not an error code. When the drying cycle is completed, Cd will be displayed, indicating that the unit is progressing through its COOL DOWN cycle. This mode is set automatically. When you do not remove a load of clothes immediately when the dryer stops, wrinkles can form. The COOL DOWN operations periodically tumbles, rearranges and fluffs the load to avoid wrinkles, without heat, for up to 4 hours. The Cd message will continue to display until the clothes are removed or the START/PAUSE button is pressed. This is found on page 22 of the owner’s manual.

Answer: 
It's behind a small door about six inches by four inches. This door is usually in the lower right or left corner on the front or back of the machine. The filter screws out after you drain any water from the pump using the drain tube next to the filter.

Answer: 
The closest device to a lint filter would be the coin trap. This device is located behind the small panel on the lower left-hand corner of the front of the washer cabinet.

Answer: 
Yes, the machine contains a "sanitary" cycle. This cycle is the only cycle that is able to heat cold water for the load you wash. A very energy efficient cycle to reduce your need to utilize hot water.

Answer: 
There is a drain pump filter that traps lint and other debris. Once a month you drain the water using the drain tube and then pull out the filter to remove lint buildup. Simple process. The whole machine does get warm to the touch while drying but heat doesn't get vented like traditional dryers. My machine is in the laundry room so I don't really notice if it heats up the room or not but it doesn't seem to.

Answer: 
the lint trap is on the bottom right of the machine. im pretty sure it drys by heating the clothes and spinning. it captures the steam/humidity and drains it through the water drainage line.
