KEEPING ENTANGLING OF CLOTHES IN THE WASH

Since part of the mechanical action of a washer is to circulate (up   down, Round  round) the clothes for good cleaning, tangling is possible. Clothes need to roll over during the wash cycle in order to get clean. However, certain loading practices increase the likelihood of clothes tangling as they roll over.

Tangling is usually related to the following conditions.

General

  • Washing only one type of clothing (all shirts or bed sheets or saris). For best results, load the washer with items of different sizes to allow free circulation in the water.
  • Not fastening belts hooks and buttons prior to washing. Fastening these reduces tangling of clothes.

Top Loading Washers

  • Wrapping shirts and sheets around the agitator.
  • Not using a proper water fill. Not using sufficient water or overloading can cause tangling. Clothes should be placed in the washer loosely.
  • On the other hand, if too much water is used for a small volume of clothes, the extra water action can also increase tangling. Try to match the amount of water to the volume of clothes. If the load is not heavily soiled, reducing the agitation time will also help minimize tangling. In addition, be sure to select a delicate wash action, if available, to wash delicate garments. It is helpful to place delicate or "strappy" items, such as bras, nylons, slips, etc., in a mesh bag while being washed. Mesh bags can be purchased in discount or grocery stores.

Front Load

  • Check the drain time. Manually advance the cycle to "spin". Time for 1 – 1.5 minute and open the lid to see if all the water is drained.
  • Check for residue build-up in the washer and dispenser. Running the tub through a Regular cycle with no clothes should remove any detergents or additives.
