Installer said that I should put down a piece of 1 inch plywood to strengthen the shed floor since the washer spin cycle does vibrate the floor. Asking just in case there is another option! No access to shed floor from underneath. How big a piece? Same size as washer or bigger?

Marine Plywood, as thick as you can get. use a full sheet and put both washer and dryer on it.

Some of the new front loaders [especially Samsung and LG, [[also sold as Kenmores] will shut down and code if they vibrate to much on spin.

Only the washer is brand new. The dryer is an old westinghouse. The washer is an LG front loader.
