Got a washer or dryer that won’t behave? Laundry tends to be put off until late in the evening, when the kids are settling down to homework or the family’s gathered around the TV. Often, people will start a load and settle down for bed. But if your washer or dryer vibrates, shakes or violently rattles, you can kiss that evening of peace and quite goodbye. The kids’ homework will get disrupted. Nobody can get a wink of sleep. Some washer and dryers are so loud they end up keeping the neighbors awake too.
It’s pretty common. Many older models loose their solid base over the years as motors become clunky and the body vibrates and shakes more excessively. Even some newer models may display too much shaking. A number of 2009 models have been noted for excessive shaking in the reviews, something you can’t tell right away at the store. You might be thinking it’s time for a new one.
But there’s a recession on, and family budgets are tight. Most can’t afford to get a new washer or dryer, especially when the new model might end up shaking just as bad. The fact is, however, you can buy washer and dryer accessories that will take care of your problem. For the price you’d spend on a minor appliance repair, you can get Silent Feet that soften the sound of washer and dryer shaking, lessening the noise to a peaceful hum you won’t likely hear above the TV.
Forget those piles of rags you’ve stacked under your washer and dryer feet. Those might have been an amiable effort, but let’s face it, did they do much to dampen the noise? Silent Feet, however, muffle the sound so you barely hear in the first place. Silent Feet deliver peace to washer and dryers, no matter how clunky and annoying they may sound today.
You may find other washer and dryer accessories that may claim to solve the problem, but be aware of their materials. Some are made of cheap foam rubber that will work no better than those soggy rags you stuffed under the appliance in the first place. Silent Feet, however, are made from Sorbothane, the same one of a kind visco elastic polymer that’s used by NASA and NASCAAR for its energy absorbing properties.
