I just bought some Egyptian Cotton sheets. So, I put them into the washer on the gentle cycle. I stood and waited until it was nearly full with warm water to put the sheets in after agitating the water so that there was no soap left on the bottom. I put the sheets in, closed the lid and the washer filled up. And just sat there. There's no movement, no nothing. I KNOW it spins and I KNOW it rinses. This explains why there have been clothes with soap stuck to them recently!!! How do I save my sheets? The dye is not set in them as I can see from the pink water. Can I agitate them in the washer by hand and then put them into the tub to rinse and put into the dryer to dry? Brandon will have to fix the washer tonight if he wants clean towels....any ideas as to what's wrong with it? I've never done anything on the gentle cycle...is this what it is supposed to do?
