Anti-vibration technology is a feature on some washers that reduces vibration and noise. It works by balancing large loads so that the spin cycle doesn't cause a loud back-and-forth motion.
Loud washing machines can be distracting when you're trying to talk, watch TV or sleep, while a washer with anti-vibration technology allows you to enjoy more peace and quiet. This is a good feature for washers located on second floors and near bedrooms and living areas. If your washer does not have anti-vibration technology, you can still add anti-vibration pads underneath your machine to soften vibrations and protect your floors.
