If your summer travels take you into the countryside, it can be interesting to visit an Antiques store. Often you’ll find the home appliances from the pre-electricity era. Manual egg-beaters and multi-blade bread-slicers. Or maybe an ice-box, which was the refrigerator of the time. Then there will be the
ubiquitous pair of washing-drum and clothes-wringer, the washer and dryer of those days. No problems with washing machine vibration back then: just the gentle flapping of clothes drying on the line. Peaceful, bucolic, and hard work.
Washing Machine Vibration, A Very Brief History
Electricity changed everything, naturally. The first order of business for upgrading clothes-washing was just to attach an electric motor to the existing hardware. This was useful, but eventually superseded by a self-contained all-in-one device. Much rejoicing! No more hand cranking! But this is where a new problem came out of the solution to hand cranking: Unless the washer was well-balanced or on a level surface, the washing machine vibration caused it to make noise, and walk. Further improvements such as high speed spin-dry made the washing machine vibration problem even more acute. These things could become motoring monsters careening around the laundry room.
Taming the Mechanical Beast
Progress in engineering and manufacturing has tamed the wild washer, but washing machine vibration is never going away. Unbalanced loads, sloping floors all have the problem of washing machine vibration rearing it ugly head in your 21st century home. But a late 20th century technology, Sorbothane®, can rescue you from this aggravating problem. Inexpensive and trivial to install--a much better solution than going back to hand-cranking!
