Totally Random

Do you have a high efficiency washer? Does the vibration drive you out of your mind? Some days it feels like my house is going to fall over. Every room shakes, photos go crooked, and items jump off of their shelves.


I tried the rubber feet that were supposed to absorb the vibrations. All they did was help the washer walk across the room. I never knew where I’d find it after a load of wash.


My wonderful husband finally found a solution. He put a 3/4 inch thick piece of plywood under the washer. All 4 feet sit on the same piece of board. Guess what? It’s so quiet and still I hardly know it’s there. It’s not the prettiest solution but it works. I’m amazed! Who knew?


Just thought I’d share. Maybe this will be of help to somebody out there.

Thank you for that advise. I have to buy a new washer pretty soon so will consider asking questions about vibration and runaway appliances.

Thank God for clever and handy husbands!

I wish you all the best for 2012.
