My kitchen is upstairs so the floor is a mix of t&g chipboard and ply; it doesn't have gaps and I levelled it. Is it a bad idea to put click vinyl flooring in there with a washing machine? B&Q colours slate tile 5mm. Will the washing machine destroy the click?

Thanks..

Hi, mines half on, half off (because it's a waste putting it at the back where you can't see it, and my floor slopes slightly towards the front of the machine so it helped with leveling ). I've had no issues in a year and mine is a very heavy Miele. I think it's important the floor itself is sound - if the machine is jumping around on loose boards or joists there is obviously more risk.

It's always a 8ugger if the floor is higher adjacent the wall, difficult to reduce easily, and there may be copper pipes

I got myself a 60x60x10 rubber mat to sit on the click vinyl, we'll see what gives.
