After a year of normal functioning, my washing machine's spin cycle is not extracting properly -- but ONLY with flannel sheets. They go through the spin cycle, but the water doesn't extract. The wash drum has no puddle. Just the flannel sheets are soaking wet. Other types of fabrics come out normal, with excess water extracted. Towels, jeans, percale sheets come out normal. Small flannel pillowcases come out normal. [more inside]
I washed a pillow in my washing machine last night; the machine kept stopping during the cycle. I would re-adjust the pillow and re-start. Before it got to the spin cycle, when the machine was still filled with water, it stopped completely. My husband is pretty handy but he can't figure this one out. Before I spend 100-200.00 on a service call, does anyone have any suggestions?
