    Does anyone have any advise on whether it's ok to have the incubator in the same room as the washing machine? I'm not so worried about vibrations harming the eggs as the incubator would sit far enough away to not be affected. I'm more concerned about noise levels, the spin cycle is quite loud! Any suggestions greatly appreciated, thank you.

    Very likely would make absolutely no difference in your hatching rates whatsoever.

    I would not think being in a room with a washer would make a difference, but a dryer might, especially with temps if the dryer affects the room temp.
