    I have a Whirlpool top loader HE Cabrio and the clothes coming out of the washer has tons of wrinkles. The dryer don't even get them out. Do front loaders have this problem?

    There is a Cabrio where I work (Cleaning) and I have not noticed wrinkles but I have only washed blankets. My front loader bangs like crazy .. I am pretty sure it is level and some of my friends also have this issue. But my clothes do not wrinkle .. never had that issue.

    I have a front loader (LG) and I've never had a problem with wrinkles. We've had ours going on 5 years now

    Try choosing a slower spin cycle - that may help.

    I have a Cabrio HE (top loader) and I don't have any problems with the wrinkles. :confused: I do put ours on the lowest spin cycle....and they still come out "wrung out". I do use our dryer, but somethings do go on the clothesline...

    Yes, make sure it's not on max extract. That's great for towels, sheets, blankets and jeans, but not lighter weight material.

    I have a Kenmore front loader and have been really happy with it and no wrinkle issues. It is like a toy compared to my 15 year old top loader that just died.

    I have a front loader and I find that if I fill it very full of clothes (since it can hold a lot) then the clothes get some wrinkles.

    My Samsung front loader doesn't put wrinkles in clothes.

    To the PP who mentioned hers bangs a lot: I did a LOT of research before getting our front loader. One thing that can cause banging is if the delivery guys didn't remove the stabilization "bars" that are installed in the machine. They are there to keep it stable while being moved but must be removed before using the machine. Did you get a packet that had those bars in it when they set it up? They should have removed them and left them for you in case you need to move the washer again.

    Thanks I will try that. I just wish it didn't reset to a higher sign every time I turn it off.
