Just seems to take forever to get it to move - Computers & Internet

    First off, how old is the computer you are using, also, what programs take forever?

    The thing with computers is that they are constantly getting more complex.

    Thus, to load many programs, you need to have more and more memory (RAM) to keep your experience running smoothly.

    Depending on the RAM you have and the operating system (Vista, Windows 7, Windows XP, etc.) is also a huge factor.

    If the hard drive is either too fragmented (maybe run defrag from the system tools in Windows,) meaning that Windows has to work harder to find the files, or not enough RAM (the computer transfers files to the RAM for quick viewing.)

    Also, go to the Control Panel (or respective setting tool) and remove any and all programs you don't need (games, manufacturer tools, etc.) If nothing else, you free up disk space and/or memory if they auto-start. Then defrag your drives.

    Getting more RAM is the best choice if you have defragged the hard drive and all is lost. As stated above, your computer uses the RAM to store info that you are currently looking at, basically. As Internet speeds, programs, and games get more advanced, the more RAM it takes to multitask them.

A couple of suggestions: First, defragment your hard disk. In Windows XP, open the start menu, open Accessories and find the Disk Defragmenter. Under Vista and 7, just use the search tool. Run a defragment. This will make it easier for the computer to load files by putting them closer together.
Also, try removing any program you don't use anymore from your computer and close applications when you're not using them.
One last thing: if your computer is older than a few years, it may just be time to upgrade it. Consider upgrading your RAM, Processor, or simply buying a new computer if the defragmentation, cleanup, and closing has no impact.

The tub makes loud thumping noises and seems to drop several times during a wash with very loud thumps and moves the machine.

The shaft that holds the drum sounds like its shifted or gotten bent (sometimes due to moving home, or overloading the machine)

One way to fix this is to open the unit and try to bend the shaft back to an equal kilter, but bending it back won't fix the problem forever, as the metal will now be weakened an d washing machines have fantastic G-force when spinning so weak metal won't keep forever,

but if you have your model number you can always get a replacement shaft and fit it yourself so its like new.

Hope this helps you.
