No. It won't work even if you can find one. Laminate flooring has a HDF (high density fibre) core which is very susceptible to moisture. Once it warps, it cannot go back to its normal flat state. The proper way to fix it is to replace the warped boards. There are some laminate flooring with a wax coating in the market. The wax give it some degree of protection against water and moisture when it's new. The coating may wear off after a few years. Hope this helps. Joseph of Tip Top Floors (

How do I balance a Kenmore 70 series washing machine.

Wood laminate flooring is never a good idea in areas that can get wet often. But, that being said, there should be leveling feet on the washer which should allow you to get it stable on the floor, if that's what your problem is. If your problem is that the washer tends to walk around the room when in the spin cycle, well that is partially due to the fact that washers often vibrate when they spin, especially when spinning large, bulky objects like quilts and comforters, that the feet on the bottom of washer are smooth plastic, and that smooth plastic feet don't stay in one place to well on wood laminate floors.
