Hey all, So tonight I wanted to get some laundry done while my wife was out. We have two blankets we use on the couch that haven't been washed in a while, so I through those in the machine to wash. I'll preface this by saying they're not very heavy, and even with both in there the machine was only about half full. About halfway through during the wash cycle, it starts making an ungodly banging noise. I ran over to it to stop it. I reached in, and lo and behind the blankets weigh about a million pounds now that they're wet. I take both out to make sure the weight is the issue. The machine starts up again just fine and is back to normal. I try putting in each blanket separately but once it starts spinning it starts clanking like crazy and rocking violently. At this point, one blanket is in the sink and the other sitting in the machine. I've stopped trying to wash them as a wet blanket will get me in less trouble than a broken machine. What can I do? It seems I can't wash either blanket now because it sounds like they will break the machine. Any advice on how to either get them to not kill the machine, or just how to get those suckers clean? Theres way too much water in them to through them in the dryer. Not sure what to do!
