SOURCE: under (setup utility) save settings are all

The bios shouldnt block you from saving unless it cant do it.

If this computer is more than 5 years old you may want to replace the bios battery on the motherboard and try saving your settings again.

Also, check with IBM on how to erase bios password if it has one.

Good luck and be careful.

Your washer may be doing this because you use far too much detergent or non HE detergent. To solve, use 1 eyedropperfull of liquid HE detergent, or one half teaspoon of powdered HE detergent dissolved in extremely hot water. Try running a Basketclean cycle with vinegar to remove the extra suds which can STILL be lurking in your drums and lengthening your rinsing time.

SOURCE: It washes normal with no load. IT turns off about

It sounds like a motor sensor problem but can't be sure since you didn't mention if there were any error codes. You will need to have a technician check it out.

I wish to sign up for billing on line


Paying your bills online can save you time and save money on envelopes and stamps.
Once you complete the sign-up process for online bill pay you can set your bills to be paid automatically.
Online bill pay can also help ensure your bills are on time even when you leave them until the last minute.
Some banks charge a fee for online bill pay so if you are planning on paying most of your bills this way, consider opening an account that offers free online bill pay.

Log into your bank's online banking website.
If you have not registered for online banking you may have to contact your bank during business hours to register.
Locate the online banking link on the website.
Read your bank's online bill pay policies and fee disclosure that should be displayed once you click the online bill-pay link.
You must agree to these policies and fee disclosure before completing registration for online bill pay.


Click the add payment or new payment link to set up your first online bill payment.
Enter any information requested by your bank.
Your bank will normally ask for the name of the creditor or utility provider, address and the normal amount of payment.
You may also be asked for the due date for each month.
If the due date is not the same each month you should set the due date for the earliest possible.

Click the save or accept button. Repeat the process for each of your bills you wish to pay online.

Which washing machine is better front load or top load?


Front load washing machines are better than top load money wise.

One advantage of a front loading washing machine is an increased capacity. Since there is no central agitator, the horizontally-oriented drum can hold at least 20 to 30% more clothing per load. For a large family, this could mean running only three loads in a front loading washing machine compared to five in a top loader. Fewer loads often translates to savings in utility bills and water usage.

Another advantage of a front loading washing machine is less water and detergent usage. A top loading washer must use enough water to cover the highest level of the clothes. A front loading washing machine, on the other hand, only uses enough water to cover approximately the lower third of the tub at most.

I installed a new battery and its not lasting for the time remaing. what should my battery be set on normal full power high power saver power


Toshiba usually has a power configuration utility for this... when on battery, reduce your inactive time values to the minimum... suggested ...screen off in 1-2 minutes and harddrive should shut down in 2-5 minutes. system standby in 15 minutes, hibernate in 1 hour.

It runs approx 2hrs 15 min each time we wash a load of dishes. is this normal?


Supposedly all the new dishwashers are "Energy Savers". Your wash times are now anywhere between 1.5 to 3.0 hours and saves you on your electric bills. I personally think its a crock but what do I know!!

How can I reduce the time needed for a wash ? It takes 2 hours is there any way to make it less ?


Most machines have a soil level selection (light / normal / heavy) and if you select light soil level the wash time is reduced. Also, some machines have a " Quick Cycle " which cuts a lot of time off, which should only be used with lightly soiled clothing. Additionally, make sure you have adequate water pressure, and that the inlet screens are clear so that the cycle is not delayed essesivly due to slow water fill. Regardless of all these, the higher spin speeds of a front loading machine (those have the longest wash times, due to the low water use and the tumbling wash action used vs an agitator in a top load machine) will result in reduced dryer run time, thus helping to reduce the overall time a load takes to wash and dry. (although still longer than most top loading sets) Generally, the energy savings and larger load sizes will outweigh the extra time the machines take.

The center area of my Kenmore 59282990 is very hot. The ice maker is working fine. I unplugged the unit for 3 minutes and plugged it back in and the unit cooled off in the middle then about 20 minutes...


The heat in the center of the doors is normal and can reach 120 degrees to reduce condensation. There used to be a energy saver switch installed to turn off/on the heater. They no longer use energy saver switches to save about 50 cents a month on utility bills. They use other energy saver parts that are not user controllable to save the 50 cents.

Shutting down on rinse cycle


Hi this could means that you may need to replace the washing machine bearings. Once the bearings are bad, the motor overheats and it will automatically shut down after the first rinse.

Hot water


new washer valve on washers are designed to be "energy saving" most are 70/30..on warm 70 percent cold and 30 percent hot also new temp controls will reduce temp to a "safe level" by adding cold even on hot setting the on/off of water flow is being controlled by thermal sensor in water line on valve output ..in other words it's normal
