is there a way to stop the washing machine from vibrating loudly?

When the washing machine stops spinning during the rinse cycle it makes a loud rattling sound that echos through the house. Is there a way I can tighten or replace something or do I just buy a new one?

Is there a dry rub I can use on my dogs to "wash them"?

I have 3 dogs and it is a royal pain in my (2 surgeries on my back in 2 years) back to wash them. I see ads for a product that does that, but im sure its a combination of Baking Soda and some other items. Any ideas would be great.

GE washer mod. #WJSR4160D0CC I like to soak our cloths so I stop the washer & the timer still runs can hear it clicking?

I have a GE washer model #WJSR4160D0CC.  When I start a load I like to soak our whites for a few hours so I stop the washer after it fills up and spins for a while and let them soak.  After I stop the washer you can still hear the timer running and clicking is my timer going bad?  My husband says it should not make this noise at all once I push in the knob to let it soak.  Once the washer runs through the full cycle it does not make this sound.  Is it going bad?  Any thoughts?  Thank you.

Mechanical washing machine.

I work for a charity with Aboriginal Australians in the remote outback of Australia, a place called Arnhem land, it is worth a google. People need washing machines, they buy them, they break , even with warranty cover, they can not be fixed as no service men will come here to service them, we are too remote.  Houses here have about 20 people living in them, there is no work here and people live on small government payments which are not enough to cover daily expenses. Due to the difficulty in accquiring and maintaining a working washing machine, health issues such as Crusted Scabies have taken hold here, and cause much suffering. We can't erradicate the disease here without getting working washing machines. We need a solution, an easy to use, easy to fix washing machine. No electronics. Cold water only is fine. Possibly even hand operated, or wind operated (or other)  I found one which is a plastic  tub which turns with a handle and stands on two feet.  However the construction too flimsy, the tub not big enough for a bed sheet, it was green though. Didn't use electric power. Anyone have any ideas? Know any other sites I could post on to get ideas? Thanks : )

How to Wash a Cat

Let me tell you how I bathe my cat.  This is no fluke. I have even taken a cat to a college class and given him a bath as a demonstration.  If anything would set a cat off, that would. I have even bathed cats that aren't mine. Take a big breath and relax. Your state of mind will influence his. Start with a clean counter next to the kitchen sink. Put towels on it. Don't have them so close to the sink that the cat could grab it.  I generally have the cat facing away from the towels and toward the water faucet.  Don't have him facing you.  He'll try to grab you and climb up your chest.  Get your shampoo opened and handy. Consider which hand will be easier for you to hold the cat and which to wash.  Set up your towels and sinks accordingly. Now, plug the side of the sink you'll be using to bathe the cat. In the other side, start the water. Get it to the temperature you want. Turn the pressure down to a slow flow - on that side. Put your cat into the empty, plugged up side of the sink, facing the wall. I have bathed a cat with and without a towel in the sink. Your choice. Let him watch the water for a few seconds until both of you relax. With your washing hand, cup your hand, fill it with water and "pet" your cat with it. Start on his back, not his head. Do this several times. Slowly move the faucet over to his side of the sink but not ON him. Continue "petting" him with water. If he's relatively calm, increase the water pressure so the sink is slowly filling. Remember, you're washing with one hand and restraining him gently with the other. Put some shampoo on him and water-pet and wash him. Have a little PLASTIC cup handy so you can scoop some of the water from his side of the sink and pour it over him (it has soap in it - might as well use it to the max). Continue washing until you are satisfied that he is clean. GENTLY remove the plug and let the water drain WHILE you are filling that cup with clean water and gently pouring it over him. Scratch and pet him frequently. Talk to him.  Rinse him thoroughly. When you are all done, let him drip a little.  You might want to gently squeeze his legs and tail to 'ring' some of the excess water off of him.  Then put him on the towels and wrap him up gently but quickly. Use old towels. If he has his claws he might snag them a little. Drying is the hardest part because he wants to run away. Dry him as best you can and then release him in a warm room. Don't let him outside until he is dry. I hope this works for you as it has for me.

Washing fabric ? Answered

My first set of fabric that I washed in the washing  machine (according to the instructions) frayed quite badly on the sides. Should I have run a basting stitch up the side of it before I washed it? Or should I wash it on gentle cycle even though it's normal wash item?

Washing With Less Water

Washing full loads of laundry with only one cup of water? The Xeros washing machine, created by researchers at Leeds University, uses plastic chips combined with just one cup of water and detergent to clean your clothes. Since washing machines are a major source of water consumption, this invention, if it is viable, could help reduce our water usage by an enormous amount.Link

"Wonder Wash" DIY Request

So I have been looking for a cheap way to quickly wash small loads of laundry and came across the "Wonder Wash" (http://www.laundry-alternative.com/washing.htm).  The main issue I have with this thing is the $50 price tag.  I know that it is a small amount to pay to reduce your water and electricity needs but times are tight.  My baby seems to go through 5-6 burp rags a day and I don't like using the washing machine for such a small load every other day.  Anyone have any insight on how I can build one of these on the cheep?

Washing Machine drain water disposal

Having had a washing machine drain line problem this weekend, I began wondering about ways of disposing of the drain water. With the soap and bleach I'm not sure of just pumping in to the lawn. This time of the year (Summer) the ground around the house slab get very dry and separates from the slab and I was thinking drain water might help but again not sure of yard and flower effects. Seem like a huge waster of reusable water. Any ideas?
