  • Maytag Maxima Sets New Standard for Wash Speed

    During our annual washing machine review process we uncovered a real diamond in the rough.  For the past few years we haven’t expected much of Maytag machines.  A few years back we saw them plagued with mechanical issues, noisy cycles and dish-rattling vibration.  Thankfully, Maytag has made a huge engineering effort and churned out a really amazing washer dryer pair.

    The new Maytag Maxima XL now sets the standard for how well a front-loading washer can work.  It hits all the key points including excellent cleaning power, energy efficiency, water efficiency and some of the best vibration damping in the industry.  Its cleaning cycle is blazing fast too.  A full load takes only 45 minutes to wash, which is less than half the time of many front-loaders.

    We’re excited to see a front-loader technology moving in this direction.  The Maytag Maxima now offers customers a full package of speed, efficiency, low noise and minimal vibration.  And its average price provides maximum performance.

  • Galanz Enters the Washing Machine Market

    You have probably never heard of Galanz but they are one of the world's largest manufactures of microwave ovens.  And now they are moving to take market share in the laundry appliance field by introducing a wide range of washing machines and dryers.  Galanz Group has been in business for 30 years as of 2012 and is pushing hard to gain market share.  What this means to you is that there is now a great selection of Galanz washers and dryers to consider for your home.  These new appliances feature a huge selection of options and colors to rival some of the bigger names like Maytag, Whirlpool, GE and Samsung.

    Here are the features found on many of this year's Galanz Washing Machines:

    All of Galanz's front loading washers incorporate their anti-vibration technology, but like we've seen repeatedly over the years, these systems are never able to fully suppress vibration.  It is always recommended that you install an anti-vibration pad like Silent Feet Anti-Vibration Pads for washing machines on your front loading washers.  The following Galanz front loading models have spin speeds ranging from 800 to 1200 rpm and will fit our Original, Anti-Walk and Premium Silent Feet products:

    • XQG70-A410PE Front Loading Washer
    • XQG72-A112PE Front Loading Washer
    • XQG72-DA112PE Front Loading Washer

    Galanz is also offering angular drum style washers.  These washing machines feature a drum and front door that are slightly angle upwards to assist in draining, make the spin cycle more gentle and make loading and unloading easier.  These models all feature 1200 rpm spin cycles and it is highly recommended that you install Original Silent Feet, Anti-Walk Silent Feet or Premium Silent Feet on these laundry appliances.  Below is a listing of these Galanz models:

    • XQG60-X212CR Angular Drum Washer

  • 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 award winning Original Silent Feet

    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.
