Silent Feet Anti-Walk Anti-Vibration Pads for Washing Machines & Dryers

Count these as one of bookofjoe's favorite things.

How many decades have I been trying to ignore loud, annoying vibrations from the laundry room as the machines do what they do?

No longer.

Yes, they seem awfully pricey for simple pads but man what a difference they make.

I bought two sets of four — for my old (early 90s) Maytag washer and dryer — and it's like going from a Yugo to a Bentley: that much of a difference in terms of noise.

Beyond wonderful.

Perfect gift for the person who has everything but peace and quiet in the laundry room.

Four for $39.95.

Full disclosure: Gray Cat (top) is less than thrilled with the end of her massage session vibration extravanzas atop the dryer.

Ah, well, at least it's still toasty.

Fair warning: Installing these by yourself in a cramped laundry room is a prescription for misery: trust me on this.

By the time I'd finally stopped trying to place the machines precisely where I wanted them — having failed to do just that but so exhausted I just didn't care anymore — I was filthy, angry, frustrated, saying bad words, sweaty, and really, really tired, besides which two of my fingers hurt a lot as a result of being crushed under one of the feet of the washing machine while I attempted to move it around just so.

Yes, very hard to do but you did it! Now I need to get you to start painting some interior walls. Color is what you need Joe.

i'm buying stock in this company...the pads probably cost a nickel apiece to cast

@Avogadro_constant Oopsie! On first read of your comment I thought you were telling Joe to fart.

Pass gas, run, and post to your blog, Joe. Leave these jobs to those of us who are knuckle-draggers.
