Clothes come out extremly wrinkled on top loding whirlpool washer

The salesman where we bought the washer described this washer as a top loading machine with the front loading technology. The cloths that come out of this whirlpool washing machine seem to have been wrung out by hand and are so tightly wrung that the cloths can not be worn without ironing them first. Is this normal for this type of machine. The old washer with the center agitator never had this problem.

    I'll try these silutions but they are conflicting. One says the load is too may be small the other says tto reduce the load. The dryer does not remove the wrinkles. I'll experiment with load size to see if it makes a difference.

This is normal. You can try a lower spin setting or smaller loads. The wrinkles will come out in your dryer.

This machine spins at an extreamly high speed.if the load is to small the clothes will tangle together and wrinkle. it is normal for the clothes to be spun realy tight and come out of the washer nearly dry this is designed to cut down on drying time and save energy.

All my dark clothes have soap deposits on them and clothes seem exceptionally wrinkled when I take them out of the washer.


If load is wrinkled the load may have set in the washer to long it is recommended to remove wash as soon as it stops or the load was too large for the washer capacity. Loads must be balanced and move freely during washing. Also using too much detergent could cause the deposits on clothing. Using an he ( high Efficiency) detergent might help. Using delicate or another cycle with low spin speed will reduce wrinkling.hope this helps

I have sold this washer to several customers as well as the Maytag Brovo, this is a characteristic of the machine. Several people have told me that if the wash a very large load that its sometimes not as bad. Good luck.

Clothes and sheets come out wrinkled and twisted


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

Laundry too wrinkled


grabbed this of an official whirlpool web site: Clothing in the washer can become tangled and twisted or balled up.
Under certain conditions, a combination of the wash load, the cycle selected and the subsequent load movement can cause
the load to become tangled or twisted.
The wash impeller has been redesigned to make the wash load less likely to tangle under the conditions mentioned above.
Replace the wash impeller with part #W10141017.
willing to bet your serial number is before this number here. easy enough part to switch if its no longer under warr
SERIAL CODE RANGE: Prior to CU39
