Question about Brother Disney PE-400D Computerized Sewing Machine
The shank and pressure foot are fine but the needle shank has so much sway that the minute I hit a bit of extra mtl, say in the corner when top stitching, then the needle sways way out and makes a terrible stitch out of line. It didn't seem this loose in the store. Is this a problem or just a bad design I'm stuck with. So sloppy in general you can't even line up the mtl with the foot because the needle sways about so much. Hate it for that but love it for all the rest.
Two things come to mind. First, if your bobbin and upper thread tension are too tight, they may be pulling the needle out of line. More likely though, is you do not have the correct needle for the weight of fabric you're using. For example, a heavy jean type denim will require a thicker needle than a thin sheet type of cotton. Your sewing store can help you select the correct one.

I have the same problem but I believe the answer is to purchase a new shuttle which is the part the bobbin sits in and is most likely scratched or damaged. The quote I got was 40-50 dollars

Possibly you have the bobbin in upside down and its turning the wrong way. Read manual. If you have done everything the manual says then it must be a mechanical issue such as the small thread take up spring or maybe the tensioner discs are dirty. Timing slightly off or there is a burr on the hook that catches the thread. Have a tech look at it.
