  • Still the Best Anti-Vibration Pad for Washing Machines

    Silent Feet were first launched a little more than 4 years ago.  At that time there were very few options available for owners of noisy, vibrating and walking washing machines.  Most owners turned to home-cooked remedies such as half tennis balls and rolled up gym socks as makeshift pads for their laundry appliances.  But Vibration Solution had a better idea.  Our company conceived of a product that would absorb massive amounts of vibration while also locking the washer in place semi-permanently.  This ideal product would feature high quality materials and simplistic but appealing design styling.  It would be compact and unobtrusive.  But nothing like this existed and it took two years of testing and numerous product revision before our engineers finally arrived at the products that you see today.

    The key to making Silent Feet the best anti-vibration pad in the world would be the unique adaption of Sorbothane rubber.  Sorbothane had originally been developed for the insole shoe market as a much higher performing alternative to the popular Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel.  While seeming to be an unlikely material for our products, Sorbothane combined numerous desirable traits including the highest energy absorption of any polyurethane rubber, exceptionally long material life and a natural tacky finish that could hold pesky washing machines in place by semi-permanently sticking to smooth floors.

    Our Original Silent Feet are still the only product to offer the easy installation option

    But the final development was still to come.  One day during testing, our engineers, having grown tired of having to struggle to squeeze themselves into tight spaces around washers and dryer while installing the prototype pads, decided that there had to be a way to make installation easier.  A quick hunt around the test lab resulted in the idea to use a felt like cloth on the bottom of the rear pads.  This would allow the engineers (and eventually our happy customers) to simply pull their washer out from its tight space, install the rear pads and then slide it back into place.  The front feet would remain the same preserving their tacky anti-walking characteristics.  All at once we knew that we had stumbled on the perfect solution.  Not only did we have the best materials, the smallest, most compact, most visually appealing, most effective product that also happened to be made in the USA, but it now took 2 people less than 5 minutes to install.  And that installation time includes opening the package as well as cracking open a tasty soda while admiring the finished installation.

    Today, we sell these pads as our Original Silent Feet.  They are still the industry's best anti-vibration pad for washing machines and dryers.  They are still the only pad of their type to offer the easy install option.  And with hundreds of thousands of pads sold each year, they are one of our best selling products.

  • Innovative Washing Machine Products - GE Profile Series

    If you're looking for one of the world's most advanced home washing machines then

    Side by side GE Profile washer and dryer

    The stylish design of the GE Profile series can make it the center of attention in your home

    look no further than the amazing GE Profile series.  The latest GE Profile washers and dryers include a huge range of cutting-edge new features like SmartDispense, Overnight Ready, Adaptive Vibration Control, HydroHeater, SteamRefresh, eDry, eWash and Stain Inspector.  Today, we'll cover these key features and how they can make your life easier.

    All washers make claims about great cleaning performance, gentle and fast cycles, efficiency and high tech options, but GE has taken their Profile series to the next level with these great options:

    SmartDispense: Unique pedestal that features 3 large capacity detergent and fabric softener reservoirs.  This pedestal can hold up to 6 months of detergent and will automatically integrate with the washer to ensure that the right amount is dispensed with each and every load.  It even dispenses at the precise time.  This great feature ends the mess and hassle of having to measure out detergent manually before each load.

    Overnight Ready: Now you can start the washer before you go to bed and in as little as 8 hours your load will be washed and dried without having to move the clothes to the dryer.

    HydroHeater: Special internal water heater that boosts water temperature to 160 degrees F to assist in sanitization.

    SteamRefresh: Rejuvenates clothes and fabrics using a special steam cycle to remove odors and wrinkles.

    CleanSpeak: The washer and dryer can communicate electronically to preset cycle times to help you save time.

    eDry: GE's unique dryer sensor that can reduce drying temperatures and allow for an additional 10% energy usage reduction.

    eWash: A very effective cold water wash option that is the eco-friendly way to cut energy usage in the washer by an additional 10%.

    GE SmartDispense pedestal

    The unique GE SmartDispense pedestal can hold up to 6 months of laundry detergent

    Stain Inspector: On-screen program built into the washer and designed to integrate with the SmartDispense system to clean even the toughest stains.  It uses specific combinations of pre-wash detergent, cycle tweaks and temperature adjustments to make sure that your clothes always come out clean and fresh.

    Adaptive Vibration Control (AVC): This active vibration reduction system is the latest in a long line of technology features on washing machines designed to reduce the amount of noise and vibration caused during spin cycles.  This system allows the washer to adapt to changing load balances and spin patters to reduce noise caused by out-of-balance loads.  It is still recommended that owner's install an anti-vibration pad under the washer to absorb the remaining vibration noise.

    Now that you've heard what makes the GE Profile series so impressive, remember that if you plan on installing this or any other washing machine on a second floor or plywood sub floor laundry room you will need to install a washing machine mat or pad.  Anti-vibration mats and pads assist the washer and dryer's built in vibration reduction technology and protect against the structural damage that long term appliance usage can cause.  This is no place to penny pinch if you've just invested in a great new washing machine and dryer, spend the extra few dollars now on a set of Silent Feet anti-vibration pads and save yourself costly home repair bills later.

  • Save big by renting your next washer and dryer

    Save big on money, hassle and piece of mind on your next apartment appliance and consider renting or leasing your washer and dryer

    A growing number of apartment, condo and home owners are renting appliances.  Selecting and purchasing a washer and dryer used to be a major purchase akin to choosing a living room set or a new car, but not any more.  These very utilitarian appliances can now be rented for a fraction of the price and you never have to worry about them growing too old and obsolete.  Not to mention that you never have to worry about costly repair bills.  The other main advantage to renting appliances is that if your living situation ever changes or you have to move you can end your lease contract without worrying about selling or moving the appliance.

    For parents of college age children, it used to be the norm to consider buying them a new washer and dryer as soon as they got their first apartment.  But what happened to that washer and dryer set after just a few years?  It usually ended up in the garage or storage unit collecting dust as soon as they moved or changed dwellings.  There is no need to waste money investing in extra garage ornaments, just rent and rest easy.  So give up the dream of buying a new washer set and trade up to the piece of mind offered by a state of the art rental set.  Just think, no mater what your situation is in the coming years, you won't have to worry about your washer and dryer.

    For added piece of mind, consider adding Silent Feet or Anti-Walk Silent Feet pads to your rental washing machine.  This is especially important for apartment owners.  Add the world's best appliance anti-vibration pad before you neighbors start complaining about your late night laundry habits.

    If you're in the market for renting a new washing machine or dryer, here are some companies to consider.  Appliance Warehouse deals with many different appliance rental situations including leasing, apartment units, commercial, corporate and home contracts.  Rent-A-Center offers many different rental appliances as well as computers, electronics and furniture.  Azuma appliance leasing company has locations all across the US and makes renting washers and dryer easy.  Similar to Rent-A-Center, Aaron's offers a diverse selection of electronics, computers, furniture and appliances like washing machines and dryers.  Rent Crusader is another great option for customers looking to rent or rent-to-own a washing machine and dryer.  These are just a few of the national appliance rental chains.  There may also be local rental, lease and rent-to-own washing machine and dryer companies in your area.  Consider this option next time you are in need of a new appliance, but don't forget that all washing machines benefit from installing Silent Feet or Anti-Walk Silent Feet anti-vibration appliance pads.
