SINCE PART OF THE MECHANICAL ACTION OF A WASHER IS TO CIRCULATE CLOTHES FOR GOOD CLEANING, SOME TANGLING CAN BE EXPECTED. HOWEVER, EXCESSIVE TANGLING ISN'T NORMAL.
WRAPPING SHIRTS AND SHEETS AROUND THE AGITATOR. Place the entire item in one portion of the wash tub.
WASHING ONLY ONE TYPE OF CLOTHING. (ALL SHIRTS, SHEETS OR ALL DELICATES). Load the washer with articles of different sizes to allow for free circulation in the washer. For example, wash no more than one or two sheets or similar large articles unless smaller articles are added to complete the load.
NOT USING A PROPER WATER FILL. Match the amount of water to the volume of clothes. Not enough water or overloading can cause severe tangling. If excessive amounts of water are used for a load, there is a chance tangling may occur.
NOT FASTENING BELTS, HOOKS, AND BUTTONS. Fastening hooks and eyes and closing all belts and buttons will reduce the likelihood of tangling to occur.
CHOOSING THE CORRECT CYCLE. In a front load washer, the permanent press cycle should be less prone to tangling.
