Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John Fixed issue with LG front-load
Moved into new house and installed our front-load LG HE washing machine. Each time the water would fill, we had a squeak or chirp in our master bathroom toilet fill valve due to the back pressure when the water flow would stop. Changing out the toilet fill valve did not solve the problem. Installed one of these valves on each of the washing machine supply lines and it has so far eliminated the issue. Easy installation all around. Hardest thing was having to pull the washing machine out far enough to give me some working clearance since we have a cabinet above the washer and dryer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Coug77 Quick Fix for Washing Machine Water Hammer
Purchased a pair of these to eliminate some severe water hammer during the fill cycles of my new LG washer, and they worked great. Installed both very easily in 10 minutes, and now no hint of water hammer. Though this is inherently LG's issue (had no water hammer problems with my previous washer, which was also an HE front-loader), I imagine it is much less trouble to drop $25 on a pair of these than to deal with LG. Especially since LG specifically states in their paperwork that water hammer isn't a warranty issue.

LG should install these on all their washers. No more water banging. I only did laundry during the day, when the kids went to school because the hammering was so loud, it would wake up the house. This product fixed the problem immediately with my LG Washer.
Easy to install.

Installed directly to back of new Maytag Bravos washer in less than 10 minutes. Thought there might be a clearance issue as washer is in a tight space, but these actually make for a better fit; hoses simply connect to bottom of fitting, no bending needed. NO MORE WATER HAMMER!!!!!!!!!!

These things work. I bought two for my allegedly efficient washer that constantly turns water on and off. No more banging. I bought two more for the drip irrigation systems outside; the timer valves were causing reverberation under the house. Again, noise and vibration is gone. I haven't owned them long enough to testify to durability, but they appear to be extremely well made.

Great product. Like others, I too had an LG HE machine with water hammer issues. After initially picking up a different brand of arrester I saw in the local hardware store, I found this brand prior to installing and decided to give it a try based on other positive reviews ... and I agree completely with their assessment.
Installation was a breeze. I installed a pair of these (one for hot, one for cold) directly to the machine tub at the end of the washing machine supply lines, rather than at the water supply valves at the beginning of the washing machine supply lines. Took all of 20 minutes, and would have been quicker had I opted to pull the machine completely away from the wall rather than save some heavy lifting and noise by working at a bit of awkward angle. After installation and ensuring no leaks, I ran the machine for a few loads and ... silence. Finally.
An added perk is that these were half the price of the ones I initially picked up, and have since returned (and that's not just due to the big box versus local store pricing -- the brand itself is less expensive). All in all, I'm quite satisfied.

Oh my God! For a whole year now, since I installed my new LG laundry machine, I have had a big pipe hammering problem. A friend mentioned about this product and after 5 minutes worth of installation time the pipes are quiet again.
LG please install this in your new washers!,,,,

The product is easy to install and actually works.
We recently purchased a new Maytag washer rated HE. The constant opening/closing of the washing machine's water valves to get "just" the right amount of water was making the pipes hammer badly. After reading the other reviews I decided to give these a try. I agree with all of the other 5 Star reviews. I attached them to the washing machine water inputs as there was plenty of room between the washing machine and the wall. Haven't heard a peep from the pipes since. Well worth the price.
