Rotfl. She's turning your doorknob to intimidate you? I'm sorry, but I'm laughing incredibly hard at that.

I take OP's claim of "24 hours" to more likely mean "any time of day or night." I would find a constant "grind-grind...grind grind...grind-grind" likely to make my sleep impossible and even render watching TV or listening to music intolerable.

Fact of life is that there are some people living tightly packed among others who act as inconsiderately as if they are alone on the planet.

OP, is it possible that it is ANOTHER apartment creating the din and not the one directly above you. Low pitched sounds are hard to pinpoint and carry easily along concrete floors (that's why you need only one sub-woofer.)
That might explain why no washer was found on inspection.


that statement makes no sense, because the washer would be in the kitchen, and the apt below it would be the kitchen, so how could a washer be keeping you up if your in your bedroom and it is in the kitchen???

It could be in the living room with extended hoes. I've seen it many a times in nyc.

I think the bottom line is that this person is a troll. If someone started turning my doorknob after I narked on them for their illegal washing machine, I would be calling the police. What happens if the door opens?

We have our co-op apartments inspected on an annual basis in the Fall. They specifically look into closets for rollaway wash machines which are VERBOTEN in this building.
But I have no doubt that some anti-social, inconsiderate dips still have them. "Oh, MY clothes are too SPESHULL (church lady) to mingle with those of the common people."
We also pay monthly per air conditioner so I imagine some people try to hide them in closets also.

But if there is ever a wash machine over my head, I guarantee that it will not be there long. And I am not stupid enough to wait for the inevitable flooding to begin complaining.

I can have some slight sympathy for people in buildings without common washers, but in a building like mine with dozens of washers, cheap fees, multiple sizes it is intolerable to take risks of flooding neighbors.
Home installations above a basement are made with drain pans and runoff plumbing so a house isn't destroyed because a dimwit broke a hose or a shutoff valve DIDN'T shut off. Draining into a kitchen sink is NOT safe for anyone under the inconsiderate ****.

Unless an apartment is made specifically to accommodate a flooding washer on a high floor it should not be done. PERIOD.

really, wow. ???

I'm older than dirt, and I have never seen something like that in all my years of living, and I used to play with dinosaurs.

i dont even believe it.

long hoses connecting to the sink both for water entering the washer, and a super long hose coming from the washer to drain into the sink.

actually, i do not believe it at all.

there is no way this can even be true.


unless of course the living room is 6 inches from the kitchen?????/
