Can I wash a Duvet in my washing machine?

Washing a Duvet can cause major damage to your washing machine

Excessive strain on your washing machine Although, the care instructions on a Duvet will often say you can wash them in a washing machine; some machines even have a special wash programme for Duvets. We'd advice you don't, because washing a Duvet can cause major damage to your washing machine by putting excessive strain on your machines components – plus the possibility of causing an unbalanced load. If the machines balance protection software doesn't abort the spin cycle and your machine dose somehow manages to spin an unbalanced load – apart from damaging the Inner drum and drum bearings, unbalanced loads can also short circuit the Motor and the Control module. It wouldn't clean properly Even if your machine doesn't become totally unbalanced; the Duvet wouldn't clean properly, because it would completely fill the drum leaving no space to fall into when the drum tumbles. Our Advice: Never wash a Duvet in your washing machine – take it to your local launderette and safely machine wash it there.
