Fixing a Washing Machine Levelling Problem

Firstly, yes we do have a washing machine in one of our buildings as we require it for cleaning purposes. With that out the way as to why it is relevant for our blog and also the fact that no doubt others have had the same problem and will no doubt benefit from this post.

Vibrations and other annoying noises coming from your washing machine may result when an unlevelled washing machine reaches its peak spin speed. In some cases, you may experience extreme vibrations and rattling which in some older houses and buildings can feel like the structure is moving too! Manufacturers of washing machines typically include levelling feet on the bottom surface of the washing machine.
