Raising A Washing Machine

Recommended Posts

My partner and I just moved our washing machine up on a custom made shelf about a meter off the ground. Since then it became faulty and making funny sucking noises. Would you say we broke it while transporting or is it the height that causes the problem?

Thanks

Raising the washing machine off the ground shouldn't cause any problems unless you don't adjust the plumbing with it. If the water is draining too low it could cause siphoning. The drain hose shouldn't go too low as described here - Washing machine constantly fills with water and goes down the drain
