I had to wash my king size blanket so I moved the stuff off the washer, pre-treated the blanket edges, set the water level to low added detergent, STPP and non-chlorine bleach, used the Delicate cycle and waited for agitation to start.  After a minute, I stopped the machine and added the blanket and reset the water level to super full. Unfortunately, with this machine, the speeds are built into the cycles so you can't have slow agitation with fast spin without some timer turning. After spray spin rinsing and deep rinsing and some final spinning, I put it into a Miele for super extraction then dried it. It is on the bed looking good.  The wrinkles from the spinning relaxed in the big drum of the KitchenAid electric dryer.  I did two other loads of laundry after that, bath sheets and dress shirts so I could dry the stuff inside while it is cold outside and I can use the heat. Speaking of cold, I saw video of the snow in Cleveland today, about 6 inches, I think they said.
