I have done it before using the hand wash cycle. I don't know if that is the way you are supposed to do it, but it seemed to be ok and didn't ruin my down comforter.

SOURCE: Washing a down comforter

I wouldn't wash a down comforter personally. I think they might need to be dry cleaned only. I know that mine does. A friend of ours that was watching our house spilled something on ours and then washed it. It went all flat and bled some of the color from the trim. We ended up having to buy a new one. Also, depending on the size of the comforter you may not want to for safety reasons of your washer. I know the sales people say you can wash like 15 jeans and 20 towels but really you don't want to. It can end up putting too much weight on the bearings of the drum and that is a costly repair. Let me know if you have any other questions, I hope this was helpful for you. Also let me know if this helped you out. Good luck.

Wash down


Since down comforters are very light in weight, they confuse energy efficient front loader washing machines in how much water to add. Therefore, very little water is used, which results in a semi-damp comforter at the end of a wash. Pre-soaking the comforter beforehand would help, however, now the comforter weighs a ton, and the machine will vibrate like crazy during a spin cycle. It may be better to have the comforter dry cleaned.

How to wash down


Hello.. I do not recommend trying to wash a down comforter in this washer. It will not wash correctly and more than likely will not spin out. Your best bet is to take the item to a local laundromat and use a large 50lb washer if available.

Wash down


That would depend on what you want to do with it. Although something that big cannot adequately spin out at high speed because it cannot balance itself. So if you select a setting with a highspeed spin it wont make it to the high speed.

Can the lg washers wm 1832 cw handle a twin sized comforter?


It depends on the thickness,content and weight of the comforter.
If you have to stuff it in, don't wash it in your machine..take it to a laundromat.

Or if it is down filled, take it to a dry cleaner.

If it is a cotton filled quilt it will get very heavy when wet and may damage your machine, so I would take one of those to the laundromat as well.

If it is a light weight polyester-filled comforter, twin size and fits easily in your machine with out stuffing it in, it is probably okay.

Washing a down comforter


I took mine to the laundromat and used their largest machine. It came out great. I dried it for an hour in their supersized dryer and then finished the job at home. It cost $7 (lots of quarters) vs. $30 for dry cleaning, which is not recommended for down because it strips the down of natural oils, I think. The label says do not dry clean on mine.

Washing down comforter


Hi,
It really depends on how big the drum is. It needs room to wash properly, so if there is no room - I would say it's too big.

Try your local laudarette - they have industrial machines that are designed for large items, so to save yourself a repair bill - just use them.
