Make sure that the wash machine is level before installing pads.
Start with a clean dry floor. Lifting one side at a time, place
pads under the feet of the wash machine. (Assistance may be needed
lifting the machine.) Using two people is the recommended method.
Make sure that the feet of the machine fit securely in the recess
of the pad. Make sure that the pads do not move or spin under the
feet. It may be necessary to adjust the feet slightly to hold the
pads firmly to the floor. Recheck level.
How To Avoid Unbalanced
Wash items of the same fabric together. Combine large and small
items in a load. Load large items
first. Large items should not be more than half the total wash load.
Do not wash single items. This may cause an out-of-balance load. Add
one or two more similar items.

We moved our washing machine to the second floor in our home.
Before we purchased GVI Vibration Dampener Pads, we used a
1 inch rubber mat. These pads made a huge difference. The floor
no longer shakes during the spin cycle.
