Final Thoughts

If you are using the spin-only option, then make sure you select an average spin speed for delicates and woolen fabrics.

Furthermore, avoid repeating the constant spin cycles and allow some rest to the motor.

The high spin speed causes the motor to heat, and repeated spin cycles may result in a burnout motor.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some common questions that are asked very often.

Does the spin only dry clothes in the washer?

Your fabrics won’t come out completely dry from the washer after the spin-only cycle. This cycle removes excess water and moisture from your fabrics which further reduces their drying time.

Why are my clothes still wet after the spin cycle?

If your clothes are coming too wet out of your washer post the spin-cyle, then there must be something wrong with the drainage system of your washer. It could be a clogged drain hose or the filter, hence quickly inspect the drain areas and get them fixed. You may also simply drain the washer manually by following your washer’s instruction manual.
