The present work aims to study the water-stop tray, a front-loading component of a washing machine. As most of the components of washing machines, the water-stop tray suffers significant vibrations especially when the spin speed increases. A vibrational analysis of the current typical design was realized. Then, four modified trays were investigated and a hammer impulse response was recorded using 13 accelerometers in order to measure the frequency response of each tray. The results allow to identify the key parameters that affect the vibrational response of a water-stop tray. Finally, the comparative analysis among the different designs allows to select the tray with the lowest vibration amplitude.
