Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vipela43 Solved a problem
My new front load machine , was causing so many problems, shaking a traveling all over the floor, until I found this product on the Home Depot web site, the true is that iI had my doubts because some of the reviews were negative, but I decided to try it and I'm a happy customer ! Is not easy to install for a single person and the half inch recess on the pads , are a most only a 3/16, a factor that made the installation more difficult, but after a leveled the machine and put the pads on place, all the problems stooped like magic !

My washer was bouncing all over the place due to the high spin velocity. I put these pads on and the washer stays where I want it. Highly recommended moment these for all walking washers

Increases vibration! Washer is more stable on level floor/ these rubber blocks are very unstable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BHowle45 Pro-Vibration Pads
I set these pads under the legs of my washing machine. The machine actually wobbled more with the pads than without. In addition it had a tendency to walk across the floor. I eventually had to remove the pads. However, with the pads in place, there was probably less vibration transmitted to the floor, which was the only good feature. The pads are thick and durable, so I'll probably find some use for them down the road. They would probably work well under a machine with a constant harmonic frequency vibration, such as a refrigerator or air compressor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Funguy Wow, this product rocks!
We levelled our Bosch Nexxt front load machine (from 2005), and in the spin cycle, it would shake the entire house including the bed a floor above it!
These little guys put an end to that! Took me under 5 minutes to install them by myself, and, from filling up all the way through the spin cycle, we can't even hear it with the laundry room door open!
I knew I could get these types of products online, and, I know the HD return policy is quite good, so buying them at HD was a slam dunk for me, thanks HD!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WickedEscort Does Not Prevent washing machine movement
The pads were installed on the washing machine according to the instructions and when the machine went into a (moderate) spin cycle the machine moved to the point that it had to be held and the power turned off.
A major part of the problem is the washing machine design. It is a front loader and it seems that the machine manufacturers can't seem to correct this problem. Their idea of a fix is pouring some concrete in the area of the front portion of the machine housing.
You might suggest the manufacturers build the machine so it can be attached to the floor or they come up with a counter weight to prevent the movement.
NOTE: When launderettes came into being the front loader Bendix washers were anchored to the floor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ernest75 "NOW" I'm impressed
I was a bit hesitant over the price, but I've installed these anti-vibration pads under my front load washing machine and I am impressed. The vibration and subsequent racket the washing machine would make are absorbed by this product, making for a civil clothes washing experience (i.e. the house is no longer disturbed by the rumbling coming from the basement).
I still think that the manufacturer is making "hand over fist" for these things, because it surely doesn't cost that much to product 4 rubber pads, but if you have some extra cash burning a hole in your pocket, they've stopped my washing machine from walking off, they may do the same for you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CTfixITdad Excellent! A must have with front loading washers!
Let me start by saying that ALL front loading washing machines on the market today have some vibration. That being said the energy created will either be transferred to your floor and walls, or these rubber pads. The pads effectively absorb the energy, and do not transfer much of the vibration to the floor. If you are on a slab, or if your washer is in the basement, you probably don't have an issue other than "walking." If your laundry is on the first or second floor, these do a fantastic job of eliminating the shake that these large machines create.
They have made a tremendous difference in my home, and are well worth the money.
