I swear the loud noise from my washing machine drives me nuts than my next door college kid playing loud music from his home theater. See how I solved the problem here

Unlike a loud/noisy neighbor- where you can always move to a quieter neighborhood- with a washing machine– it’s either you find ways to soundproof the laundry room or  sound dampen the washing machine or you live through the noise.

I know the pain you’re going through right now- that why I decided to craft this article to help you understand the different techniques you can always implement and sound insulate washing machine.

Washing Machine Sound Absorber

Soundproof Laundry Room Using These Simple DIY TechniquesSoundproof Laundry Room Using These Simple DIY Techniques The very first step I undertook was buying washing machine pads. I bought these anti-vibration pads on Amazon (Check them out)I would recommend you get two sets (they are quite inexpensive). One should be for the dryer and the other one for the washer.

Once you get them (I suppose the next day-If you order them today), you’ll need to fit the under the feet of both the dryer and the washer. This should take you less than 5 minutes.

However, if you don’t want to spend any money- I would recommend placing old rags beneath the dryer and the washer. But remember they won’t be as effective as anti-vibration pads.

Soundproof Laundry Room Door

Now that you have fixed the noise problem from your washing machine, next it o focus on the laundry room door.

In this case, I would recommend you replace your old hollow door with a new soundproof model. You can hire a professional or either DIY with the help of some nice YouTube tutorials. I’ve learnt so much thanks to YouTube.

Soundproofing the door will fix the problem for good. However it’s important to note that you will incur more expenses. But if you find this fix quite expensive, there are other DIY fixes you can apply using these inexpensive sound dampening materials.

Cheap ways to soundproof a door

If replacing the laundry room door sounds expensive to you, then I would recommend below hacks. They are effective and solved my noise problem just fine.

a) Cover the door sweep

Now before you proceed, first go and check how the door hugs the ground. If the door sweep gap is big, I would recommend you to get this simple door sweep and place it under the door.

Now when buying a door sweep, please don’t go for ones you have to screw on the door- instead I would suggest ones with self-adhesive tapes for they are easier and practical to use. Either way, make sure the door sweep is covered. Check these door sweeps I bought to deal with my laundry problem

b) Consider a soundproof door blanket

Now you might want to go a step further if you feel that the door swivel and the washing machine pads aren’t doing a good job so far.

Consider using these soundproof door blankets and hang them on your laundry room door.

They are pretty cheap and made of thick sound dampening materials that block out the noise from your washing machine and you’ll only need less than 5 minutes to have them installed.

Cheap ways to soundproof a wall

You can also go an extra mile and soundproof the laundry walls. You can implement this especially if the room next to the laundry room is your bedroom or movie room. You can get cheap materials for sound insulating the walls.

How to soundproof a floor cheap

While the washing machine pads will significantly reduce impact noise-impact noise when an object makes an impact on a building.

Machine vibrations are transferred to the floor and subsequently sent to other rooms in your house. Impact noise causes all those vibrations you feel when the dishwasher or the dry is turned on.

Acoustics and soundproofing are not the primary consideration in the blueprint of an architectural project. Nobody notices any issue until the building is occupied with real people living there: until babies start to cry or until a wannabee teenage rocker becomes your neighbor. Likewise, the same issue happens in companies, where offices are deployed in large clear spaces: in one room, there is a meeting, and in the open space, employees are providing support to customers by phone. Therefore, unluckily, most of the solutions, are aftermarket solutions. It is difficult to implement them after the project is handed over. I explain thoroughly soundproofing projects that you can do at home or in your business.
