Washers - Tangled, Twisted, Knotted Clothes

Tangled, twisted or knotted clothes are usually the result of wash loads that were not properly sorted. Here are some tips to help prevent clothing from knotting and twisting: 

  • Avoid mixing heavy items with light items.

  • Avoid putting too many or too few items in the washer.

  • Make sure you set the proper water level for the size load you are doing. See Washers Water Level And Load Size.

  • Never wrap the clothes around the agitator. See Washers Proper Washer Loading.

  • Be sure your wash water is not too hot for the fabric.
