  • Washing Machine Vibration Facts

    Here are a few quick facts on washing machine vibration.

    1. All washing machines and dryer vibrate.  Dryers usually have less vibration than washers because the load is only wet clothes (as opposed to a drum of water and clothes).  Front loading washing machines cause high frequency vertical oscillation while top loading washers usually have horizontal oscillation.
    2. Almost all front loading washing machines are not recommended for use on standard joist-construction floors (most common floor type, compared to a concrete slab sub-floor).  Manufactures like GE, LG, Maytag, Samsung, Whirlpool, Kenmore, Bosch and more, all recommend installing a pad like Silent Feet under the washing machine to absorb the vibration.
    3. Prolonged use of a front loading washing machine on regular joist floors will cause structural damage.
      Joist construction sub-floor

      Most laundry rooms are constructed on a joist type floor. Here long wooden joists support a plywood sub-floor. Vibration weakens the joints between all the parts of the floor.

      This can result in minor issues like creaks and cracks in the floor all the way to sagging and collapse of the floor.

    4. The only alternative to using Silent Feet pads to prevent structural damage is costly upgrading of the sub-floor.  This usually involves adding a second layer of plywood sub-floor and adding sister boards to the rafters that support the floor.  But even this won't reduce the amount of vibration noise that you hear.  Sub-floor upgrades can cost thousands of dollars.
    5. Vibration can also cause appliance "walking" (unwanted movement) usually during the spin cycle.  Simply installing a pad designed to prevent walking can solve this problem and mean that you'll never have to reposition your washer after every load again.  Both Original Silent Feet and Anti-Walk Silent Feet prevent walking, however for washers that move a lot or stacked units it is recommended that you install Anti-Walk Silent Feet for the best results.
  • The Latest Generation of Anti-Vibration Pads Has Arrived for Washing Machines

    Stack of 4 Ant-Walk Silent Feet washer pads

    The compeition just doesn't stack up against the amazing results of Silent Feet pads.

    3 years ago the first generation of Silent Feet were sent to the test labs.  Just a few months after that they made history as the number one anti-vibration pads for washing machines and dryers.  Today, we are proud to bring you the next generation of Silent Feet pads.  To engineer and build this latest appliance accessory we had to take our design back to the drawing board and totally re-created it.  We started with the same superior Sorbothane rubber as the primary vibration isolating material, but this time added a second top layer of stiff rubber.  This second layer of rubber provides a second wall of vibration resistance to the pads.  Then we added unique ridges to the top of each pad to help lock your washing machine in place.  After installation, the rubber ridges deform slightly allowing for a custom fit on every installation.  Finally we polished our molds and finished them with the highest grade of Teflon coatings to give every one of our products a clean, brilliant shine to accent the high gloss finish on modern washing machines.

    Never before has there been an anti-vibration pad that offers all of these benefits and looks this stunning.  In fact, these new Silent Feet make all other washing machine pads look like, big ugly blocks of rubber.  Just like before, our Original Silent Feet offer easy installation and can be installed in most applications in less than 5 minutes.  Also like before, our Anti-Walk Silent Feet offer the best solution to eliminating unwanted appliance movement and "walking" without using any glue or adhesive.  All of this has been provided at the same great price as before.  And just like before, all of our washing machine pads carry a 10 Year Limited Warranty against defects and material failure.

    The 2nd generation of Silent Feet pads makes our product line-up even better than before.

    Still not convinced that we've outdone ourselves?  Then give our products the greatest test of all.  Install them in your home and if you're not completely satisfied that they have solved your washing machine vibration and noise problem, simply return them.  We're so convinced that you will love them that we still offer our 100% satisfaction guarantee.  Take this opportunity to try them out today.  You'll see and hear the difference one the first load of laundry and on every load after that for years and years.

  • Cut Washing Machine Vibration with an Easily Affordable Solution

    Does your washer like to walk around at night? Are you constantly heaving it back into place after it’s almost slept walked away from the wall? Does your washer seem to need its own leash?

    Washers tend to move as a result of excessive washing machine vibration. As machines wear out, their absorption qualities wear down, causing it to shake and rumble. The movement is kinetic as the vibration causes the machine to “walk” away from the wall. This leaves you every laundry day heaving it back against the wall, risking your back as well as your patience.

    There are solutions short of chaining your washing machine down, but it all depends on how excessive the walking is. The key is to reduce washing machine vibration through absorbing feet. The question you have to ask yourself is how much does the washer walk? If it’s severe enough, you might want to opt for feet that are designed to stop washer machine walk. In addition to absorbing the noise, feet specialized for washing machines that walk are more securely fastened to the washer.

    How well the feet work comes down to which feet you buy. Do yourself a favor and skip the hardware store. They have many cheap possibilities, but they are usually made from poor materials, don’t absorb energy as well and wear out quicker. Few even claim they are designed to stop washer machine walk, and even fewer live up to the promise.

    Silent Feet, however, are made from scientifically enhanced durable polymers that will last a lifetime. In fact, they are some of the only feet on the market that are backed by a lifetime guarantee. These things can last for life. If they wear out in the first decade, they can be replaced for free.

    Their unique design is also easily assembled. You can have them attached to your washer in six easy in six easy steps, turning your afternoon project into a few minutes of productivity that leaves you with the rest of the afternoon to yourself. You can get back to watching the ball game in peace, knowing your house will be quiet and calm no matter when you have to do laundry.
