Clothes and sheets come out wrinkled and twisted

I have a year old Duet Sport front loading washer and dryer. The clothes and sheets come out wrinkled and twisted. I've tried Bounce fabric softener sheets and dryer "balls". Nothing seems to help. Do you have any suggestions?

    When I wash my dress shirts together the sleeves get all twisted up and wrinkled into a knot; difficult to seperate but necessary when I need to put them into the dryer.  The same thing happens when I wash my jeans -- they get all twisted together.  How do I prevent this from happening. It's driving me crazy.  I'm very unhappy with this outcome because often these wrinkles don't come out even after they come out of the dryer.  Please help.  Ron

Try not to wash large items with small items the large items like sheet will twist around the small item. causeing twisting and wrinkling. Also If you are overloading the clothes or underloading the clothes they will come out wrinkled. I would try to do some testing wash a load of only towels then wash a load of only t-shirts and other light weight items that you may have. Then do just a load of your jeans. What happens? Please let me know

  • Whiffle balls or separate mesh laundry bags does the trick!

Get the shets and things out right after the cool down cycle is done. As far as sheets are concerned, you should try drawstring sheets. the drawstring bypasses all the wrinkle concerns since the sheet is tightened as flat as you need to eliminate wrinkles.

Which is better for the dryer and why, dryer sheets or fabric softener in the wash?


Liquid in the washer is better since sheets in the dryer are prone to leaving stains (read back of package about stain warning on every box of softener sheets i have ever seen) also the sheets leave a build up on the thermostats and moisture sensor

While the liquid in the washer softens the clothes and has no build up or staining issues such as the sheets

Since you stated you are already using fabric softener, it sounds like you are over-drying your laundry. Try reducing the dry time and hang your clothes immediately.

Oil on clothes front loading kenmore washing machine 7 years old


Oil cannot get on clothes from a front loader . It's probably the liquid fabric softener you are using . Either try a different brand , use dryer sheets instead , or make sure the water temperature is correct for the softner . Also check the front drum seal , for built up , undisolved softner , collecting " gunk " which may be getting on the clothes .

Sheets twisted in a tight wad


hi there......this is usually caused by older dryers which didnt have a reversing tumble facility...or if a lifter is missing from the drum..check that your dryer is or is not a reverse action....and if it is a reverse action that it actually does reverse...you may have a programmer fault if its not reversing

Too many clothes in the load , reduce by 25%

Switch to an old fashioned soap powder that has more agents in it to help it dissolve

Whirlpool duet front loader washer/dryer


It is not the dryer causing the problem. We get the brown streaks on our white clothes before putting them in the dryer. I have ruined more white clothes over the past six months with this Duet washing machine!!! We also don't use bleach so I don't think it is the HE/Clorox combo that somebody mentioned earlier. Anybody know what exactly is causing this yet... before I throught the moldy stain causing Whirlpool duet out?

Wrinkles!!!!!!!!


This is a frequent complaint with the following known  solutions:
  • You might be drying them too long. back the time down so that the cool down cycle happens right as the clothes are dried. 
  • Try smaller loads.
  • You should dry heavy fabrics and light fabrics separately.
  • Fabric softener in the washer may help to prevent wrinkles from forming in the dryer.
