Washing just one garment in a machine

how do you successfully wash 1 item in a 9kg drum washing machine so it can slop around the drum as the drum revolves. I would have thought the paddles of the drum would 'lift' / scoop up the garment to the top of the drum and let it fall back to the bottom of the drum (hence why they call them also drum lifters) - but all that seems to happen most of the time is that the drum revolves and the paddles just go under the garment (which in this instance is a padded outdoor jacket) and the jacket just rides over the paddles suspended in the water. - apart from putting in more clothes at the same time what more can a person do?

Hi Andy. I think that's why you're not supposed to wash just one item, especially in such a large drum. You need to wash as much laundry as you can to fill up that massive drum. Is it something that has to be washed on its own?

Need a repair or spare parts?

well, no the biggest reason for washing just the coat was because I didn't have any other washing to do lol ☺️
apart from that I thought you were supposed to clean stuff like coats etc on their own no?

Did it come out clean? That’s main thing 😊

oh it did sparkling - I still would have been more satisfying to see it lift to the top of the drum and fall down a few times though through the cycle rather than it just wallowing in a pool of water :)
