Prevent tangled shirts and pants in Front Load washer

How do you prevent the shirts and pants from becoming tangled in knots in a front load washer? As a result my laundry is more wrinkled because they get knotted during the wash cycle & during spin creases get formed from the knots so pants & blouses I formerly could just shake out now need to be ironed! In addition, since everything is in a tangled mess, newly washed items end up on the floor when I try to transfer wash to the dryer, because you can't pull 1 item out of the unending chain of knotted items. Very frustating and not very sanitary so I end up rewashing items.

SOURCE: my cloths don't come clean.....whites are dingy

First I would start by cleaning your washer system with vinegar. Ran your machine like you would without clothes and pour a cup of vinegar like you would with the soap for a whole cycle. If this doesn't work chances are your drain is clog or your pump isn't working properly.

Clothes come out tangled


Things tend to intertwine in the washer, even more so in front loaders. The only things that I have found that help is to use fabric softener, a gentler cycle, and an extra rinse. This alleviates the problem some for me, but it doesn't really go away entirely.

My cloths don't come clean.....whites are dingy even with bleach. Normal stains on regular colors don't come out. If you put more than one pair of pants or two long sleeved shirts in a load they come out...

I am getting an error code "DC". What does that mean?


DC means: Unbalanced load prevented the washer from
spinning.

This happened to me when i was washing a single shirt (red shirt, first time washing so i did it seperately so it wouldnt bleed into other clothes)

So i set the washer to "drain", waited for the door to open, and wrung the shirt out by hand. Next load it worked properly.
