Soundproofing Your Washing Machine

Soundproofing Your Washing Machine
June 07, 2024

Dealing with an excessively loud washing machine every time you try to do a load of laundry can become udderly annoying. Whether your washing machine sounds like it is rattling or jumping around in your laundry room, there are several different tricks to make your washing machine quieter.

Reasons Washing Machines Make Loud Noises

You may be dealing with a loud washing machine for different reasons. Keep in mind, though, that no matter what, your washing machine will make some sounds whenever it is in use. To run a load of laundry, it needs to move around, which causes sound from the vibrations of everything working together.

One of the most common reasons washing machines make loud noises is because they are placed on hard floors. When your clothes are getting washed, the vibrations from the washing machine in use will transfer to the floor, which is not able to absorb or block those sounds, creating some noise whenever it is in use.

How to Soundproof a Washing Machine

If you want to reduce unwanted noise, there are several things you can do to soundproof your washing machine, including:

  1. Figuring out where the noise is coming from and securing components that are too loose or vibrating.
  2. Filling your load to capacity while making sure the contents are balanced in the washing machine.
  3. Checking the floor and adding stability by stopping vibrations.
  4. Ensuring the floor and washing machine feet are level and not shaking when in use.
  5. Using soundproofing solutions like door seals, wall insulation or sound-absorbing floor underlayment to reduce noise.

About Kellen Beaver

Soundproof Cow Representative Kellen

Kellen has been a member of the sales team for over a decade. Prior to delving into the soundproofing realm, he was a jack of all trades in the service industry, working both front and back of the house jobs to various degrees. This diversity in experience makes it easy to relate to the needs of a large customer base. He understands noisy environments as well as the importance of aesthetics in a space. Adding something that doesn’t fit the look can be intrusive, so knowing that acoustical needs must fit the interior design is something he’s become very well-versed in. Most of this planning comes from working with both the owner/operators as well as their design team and architects. He has been able to adapt his knowledge in the restaurant industry into projects involving schools, office buildings and large medical facilities when the situation calls for it.
