Is there a phobia of shaking washers?

I m not scared of washers, only when they shake. When they do, I have a meltdown. I cry and my anxiety kicks in. If I m home alone I let it shake so I don t see it or hear it. If I m with family, I ask them to shut it off. I m also scared dryer, mostly when they are new or not working correctly. I don t know why, but it really scare me.

    Go talk with a professional and cure yourself .complaining that you have a phobia/s will not get you nowhere .Why should your family suffer because you are sick? if you underage let your parent assign you to a therapist .

    A shaking washer would be terrifying to a small child. It's a big, noisy machine jerking around like some monster. Perhaps that happened when you were a small child. It's not nothing when you're an adult either - it appears like it might break, or lurch out of place, or go on fire, whatever. Good news is, it's not supposed to shake. Someone could probably fix that in five minutes.
