Do you have a laundry renovation in the works or were you looking to make life easier in that space?

 

It would be great to hear more about your plans and we'd encourage you to let us know if you need any assistance or would like to share your project with the community.

Re: lnfolaundry

Update - we finally attached the cabinets to the wall, and then out a whole bunch of silicone under the workbench hoping that would help with some of the vibration. It’s working great! The anti-vibration pad from The Good Guys still hasn’t arrived, but it seems we won’t need it now. Thanks again for all the tips - very happy!!

Re: lnfolaundry

Really, really pleased for you!
I also tweaked (literally a tweak and no more) one of the front legs and it has made even more of a difference. As the bench has settled it just needed a final adjustment. Here's to washing without bending.

Re: lnfolaundry

I built a timber stand for my elderly mother-in-law's front load washer out of 90x90 treated pine and dyna-bolted it to the floor. (It was solid)
To minimise vibration and the chance of it moving out of position I carefully adjusted each foot so that the machine was level left to right and front to back, using a spirit level. Once everything was level it made quite a difference. The only occasion the machine jumped around a was on the spin cycle if the load became unbalanced.
