One of our most useful helpers in daily household chores is washing machines. However, excessive vibration and movement of washing machines is a serious problem. What should we do in this situation?

We asked Kamal Salimli, a home appliance repairman, to answer this question. He noted that the legs of the washing machine move when they are not attached to the floor surface:

“In order for the legs of the washing machine to be strengthened, the floor surface must be tiled. Although the floor surface is made of wood, the legs of the washing machine are fixed to the floor, but after a while it does not maintain its effectiveness. In addition, these cases occur when the shock absorber of the washing machine fails. This problem is found in washing machines that have been used for 5-6 years. ”
