Washer dryers are heavy machines. When they don’t direct the weight properly during the spin cycle, they can “walk” across the floor due to the vibration of the legs at the corners of the appliance. Not only is it frustrating because the vibration will very likely also result in a loud spin cycle, it will also mean that your clothes won’t get as dry as they should. Oh, and if you have to fetch your washer dryer from the garden after each clothes wash, that’s can be a tad annoying!
So how can you avoid your washer drying going for a walk? Well, the best advice is to make sure the appliance has an internal energy distribution system. What that does is transfer the huge amounts of energy being created during the spin cycle around the different parts of the machine to take the stress away from the legs. If the body of the appliance isn’t moving, neither will the legs, and the dryer can’t “walk”. It’s also likely to be much quieter if the energy is dissipated in a controlled way.
Noisy Existing Washer Dryer?
If you already have a washer dryer with such a system but it’s noisy and walking, it’s time to call an engineer to get advice on fixing it because something could well be amiss inside the appliance which has caused the energy distribution to fail. Before doing that, though, you may want to see whether adjusting the feet (if possible) to level the machine makes any difference. You could also spend a few quid on some anti-vibration pads which go underneath the appliance’s feet, like in the video. If you do want to try the feet, click this link for them.
