Like any other industrial or home applications, washing machine too vibrates during the spin cycle thus shaking the whole house and creating a lot of noise. But you can get them under control with vibration isolation pads or vibration dampening pads. Although in some cases it may seem counterintuitive, but if your washer still happens to vibrate even after being leveled, the solution is not to bolt it to the floor. In fact that will just add more to the noise caused. Instead of connecting the washer to the floor, you rather need to isolate it from the floor. Usually it is the washer’s rubber feet that is supposed to do that, but unfortunately, at a high speed spin, they are unable to do a very good job. However, with the right vibration isolation pads or dampeners the problem can be solved.
Installers use heavy-duty rubber pads under furnaces and blowers. Companies like Andre HVAC make pad specifically for front-loading washing machines to absorb the vibration. Installing these pads is a simple three-step process. Start by lifting each corner of the machine and slip in a rubber isolation pad under each foot. Mark each of the rubber pad location on the floor. Then lift the washer out of the way so that you can apply the adhesive discs and mount the pads to the floor.
