Washer Repair Raleigh Nc – One of the most common concerns of that our Raleigh North Carolina customers express regarding their washer is that it vibrates too much. In most cases, the vibration is not caused by a defective part in the washer, but is due to the location of the laundry room and structure of the home. Raleigh Nc homes tend to have the washer and dryer located in the center of the house. Most foundations in Raleigh have crawl spaces and the first floor is several feet above ground level. Two story homes in Raleigh typically have the laundry room on the second story and a drain pan that the washer sits in. The Drain pan that your washer may sit in can also not be flush to the floor or the drain in the drain pan is pressing against the bottom of the washer cabinet. All of these characteristics of Raleigh homes create a poor environment for a washer to remain stable to the floor. When the washer starts picking up speed in spin cycle, home owners in Raleigh will start noticing their subfloors, and walls shake. This is due to an unstable floor and the structure of the home.

Some residents will buy and install anti vibration pads that are sold at local home improvement stores. In most cases this will not help. Sometimes it makes the vibration worse especially if the legs aren’t adjusted properly.
