I have a bit of a problem. I get interference when using my computer and
washing machine at the same time.
When the washing machine is working the motor on the bowl turns on and off
and changes direction, using one of those stator type motors i think their
called. In doing so I can hear a crackle or spike in my speakers, and if
using broadband (USB), it disconnects the broadband. I have a joystck type
USB interface and disconnects the interface ever time the motor turns on.
Any way of solving this problem? If so, is it done at the washing machine
or computer end?
Many thanks in advance,

are no longer any interference problems with my usb devices.
