Well, two months have passed since I installed the GVI pads underneath the LG Tromm SteamWasher. I am absolutely delighted with my purchase of the GVI pads. Can’t say the same for the LG Tromm. The pads have made owning the LG Tromm tolerable.
If the LG Tromm did not have a vibration problem, it would be a fantastic washing machine. Of course, that’s not the case. Fair or not, I expected the LG Tromm to perform no worse than all top-loading Maytag washing machines I have had the pleasure of using over the years. If an owner should only install the LG Tromm on a concrete floor, LG should require all its dealers to post such a notice on their showroom floors.
Anyways, the LG Tromm suffers vibration problems during two stages of the washing cycle. When the LG Tromm first enters the spin cycle, some items can be exceedingly damp; e.g., towels, mattress pads, etc. Now, I’ve never had a problem washing these types of items with a top-loading washing machine. With the LG Tromm, the washing machine really shakes violently when it encounters heavy, water-logged laundry items. The GVI pads have no measurable effect during this stage. However, after the spin cycle has progressed for a few minutes, the uneven load problem disappears and the GVI pads work extremely well at dampening the LG Tromm’s vibration and noise, even at the fastest spin levels.
