    My washing machine vibrates the whole kitchen!

    My washing machine vibrates the whole kitchen! 20th Jan 06 at 12:32 PM

    I've just moved into a first floor flat, and have - so far - kept the thin vinyl flooring that the builders installed. I had my washing machine on spin last night, and my downstairs neighbour knocked to inform me that her kitchen lights were shaking! To be fair, it was a heavy load and on a fast spin, but I noticed that it was affecting my kitchen floor quite badly in terms of vibrations.

    I'm planning on getting some thicker (and nicer!) vinyl flooring down at some point, but can anyone recommend anything either in the meantime, or some sort of insulating underlay that I can use with new vinyl flooring?? I definitely don't want to annoy my new neighbours, but will still need to spin the washing machine!
