Rubber-Cal's recycled rolled rubber mat and flooring option that is available in 2 gauges: a 1/4 inch thick and a 3/8 inch thick. This flooring option is perfect for a variety of floor protection applications. Because the material is domestically made with 100% recycled rubber, this appliance mat is both socially and ecologically responsible. This product is excellent for indoor or outdoor applications due to high contents of EPDM (i.e., a UV/Ozone resistant elastomer) found in the recycled tire rubber. Recycled rubber is a superior material for reducing noise, containing vibration, and absorbing shock from workout equipment. This washer and dryer mat is specifically manufactured for durability and is designed for both residential and commercial applications often exposed to heavy foot traffic. Moreover, the space-age polyurethane based binder used during the manufacturing process enhances rubber's natural anti-fatigue qualities. Each mat is fabricated from thousands of rubber granules and offers superior underfoot comfort and support along with a resilient cushioning for the shock of running, exercising, walking and standing. One of the biggest concerns commonly associated with rubber matting is its installation. However, this washing machine pad weighs roughly 50lbs in a 4ft x 10ft roll and generally lies flat under its own weight; therefore there is no need for permanent adhesives.

First, I bought the Vibrafix rubber feet sold on Amazon. If you're on this page, you've probably already seen it — it has a lot of positive reviews. The Vibrafix feet reduced the vibration upstairs slightly, but the window still rattled audibly.
Second, I re-leveled the washer. The machine was technically already level, but I figured the vibration might be reduced if I improved the leveling further. I didn't notice much of a change after leveling.
Third, I bought this Rubber-Cal Anti-Vibration Washing Machine Mat. I really wanted it to work — it had a handful of 100% positive reviews, including one which described a stacked washer/dryer on tile just like mine. At first I was hesitant since it was so expensive ($93 for a rubber mat??), but I figured that it was a small price to pay to protect my home and that perhaps it was made of a better, more durable material than other rubber mats.
The pros of this mat are that it is made of heavy duty rubber that won't shed. It is very dense and heavy, and it will probably last a very long time. The mat was not as elastic as I expected (I can barely cause any depression when I pinch it between thumb and index finger), but its weight made me hopeful — I thought that the high mass alone might absorb and dissipate most of the vibration. There is a strong "new tire" odor, but I followed the advice of other reviewrs and was able to eliminate it by letting the mat sit outside for about 6 hours.
I cut the mat to size using a measuring tape, metal straight edge, chalk and a box cutter/utility knife. Like another reviewer noted, scissors will not do the job. You need to slice the mat along the same line (against a straight edge) over and over again, in layers, until the knife finally breaks through to the other side. If you use this technique, your cut will be perfectly clean and straight.
Getting the mat under the stacked washer/dryer was a bit of a pain. You can't just fold the mat, tilt the machine to one side, slide the folded mat under the raised legs, and then tilt the other way to unfold. The mat is so thick that it doesn't fold flat enough to fit under a tilted machine. You really need a dolly or some serious human lifting power, depending on the space your washer/dryer is in.
I just did my first wash load on the new mat and was utterly disappointed. Somehow, the mat has made the spin cycle vibration worse. I'm not sure how this is physically possible, but the ears and eyes don't lie — after all of the expense, cutting and lifting, my upstairs master bedroom window actually vibrates worse now. And the railing on my stairs has now started vibrating with the spin cycle.
I plan on troubleshooting and experimenting further, but it's hard to articulate here just how disappointed I am. I took a risk on a product that had few reviews and I paid the price. I've lost about $90 on a sub-par product that I can't return because I've already cut it up. In fact, unlike other anti-vibration mats on Amazon that are pre-cut to the footprint of a typical American washer/dryer, the strange, large size of this mat makes me wonder if the seller designed it this way in order to prevent returns.
However, I am thoroughly disappointed with this product as it made no difference to my Top loading GE washer
having spent 93 dollars and going through all the steps to fix it, it is very frustrating to note that the vibration issue is not resolved.
and not even sure if the manufacturer will offer a refund since we had to cut the mat to fit our need.
buyers beware that this may or may not fix your vibration issue - manufacturer probably needs to come up with guidelines on what kind of vibrations are expected to be fixed with this product. kind of feel very disappointed that issue is still there
