2015 Quiet Front Loading Washing Machine Buyers Guide

Tax rebate season is almost upon us and that means many people will be heading out to purchase a new washing machine and dryer with those extra dollars. Don't skimp on the important details like picking a washing machine that will be quiet and dependable. Check out our full list of recommended washers and dryers for this year.

It is very important to recognize what your expectations for your laundry room are, because it is likely that your next washer and dryer will last for a decade or more before needing to be replaced again. Picking a noisy or high-vibration washer could mean many years of aggravating noise every time you do laundry. There is good news though about solving vibration problems in washers and dryers. By installing Silent Feet under the appliance, even on a 2nd installation your home can remain a quiet and peaceful place. It is strongly recommended that you install Silent Feet or Anti-Walk Silent Feet vibration isolation pads if you currently have or are planning to purchase any of these models of washing machines.

Even if your front loading washing machine isn't listed here as having vibration issues it still needs vibration isolation pads if it is installed on a 2nd floor or joist constructed floor.  This is because over time, vibrations caused by repetitive use of a clothes washer's spin cycle will cause the joints of wooden floor supports to separate and wear.  Washing machine manufacturers know this and all of them recommend the use of a vibration isolator pad like Silent Feet for these installations.  Don't risk long term damage and costly repairs to your home, make the investment in Silent Feet vibration pads for your laundry room today and rest easier knowing you're protected.
