Identify the source of the sound

Is your appliance making a sound because it’s positioned on uneven flooring? Wooden floors can become soft and uneven after years of ware and floors can become sloped as houses settle and age. Rigid appliances are incredibly unforgiving when it comes to uneven flooring surfaces. To determine if stability is the source of your sound, place both hands firmly on the appliances and gently attempt to rock the appliance back and forth. If the appliances rocks and rattles, you know uneven flooring is to blame.

Level and stabilize with a plastic shim

Place a level on top of your appliance, and with both hands placed firmly on the appliance, gently sway the appliance into position. Use a Wobble Wedge leveling shim to fill the gap between the base of the appliance and the floor. Wobble Wedges are available in a variety of sizes and colors to seamlessly blend into your environment. Use BigGap Wedges for industrial and commercial sized appliances. Standard Wobble Wedges are an ideal leveling wedge for medium sized appliances like dishwashers and ovens. Use hard plastic Wobble Wedges® for appliances on soft flooring materials and soft plastic Wobble Wedges for appliances on hard flooring.

Patented ridges prevent slipping or sliding

Our patented plastic wedge design features offset ridges that prevent the wedge and your appliances from slipping or sliding from their position. This is especially helpful when silencing a rattling washing machine or any other appliance with a strong enough motor to wobble out of its position. Use a soft plastic Wobble Wedge to level an appliance on hard flooring with a particular propensity for wobbling out of position and creating noise.
