Does your washing machine shake, rattle, and bump while it is running? While a little vibration is normal, loud thumps and bumps are not. Not only are these issues annoying both for residents and the people living above and below them, but they can cause damage to your washing machine.
While either model of a washing machine can vibrate for various reasons, front loaders tend to vibrate more than top-loading washing machines. That's because high-efficiency models have a much faster spin cycle. Several things can cause a washing machine to vibrate, and usually, you can find a way to fix the problem.
If not of these simpler methods work for you, there are full-size anti-vibration platforms as well as small pads on the market and trying these may solve the problem. Since full platforms are rather pricey, you may want to try other solutions before going this route. The small anti-vibration pads are a more affordable cushioning choice.
