Why is my clothes shrinking and getting more wrinkles

All my cottons are wrinkled. Some of my cottons are shrinking. I have been suggested to use Wrinkle Care but this is not working. I don't want to use the steam every time.
Asked by: calabasas
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dryer and its features. The difficulty you have described actually sound to be more of an installation problem with the washing machine. If the water lines are reversed, a hot rinse cycle will occur, which can lead to shrinking of some fabrics, as well as setting wrinkles into the fabrics which are difficult to remove. It is suggested to check this possibility. If this turns out to not be the case, then it would be recommended to contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional troubleshooting.

Does this mean you cannot use soft water (reverse osmosis) in the reservoir? Can you use non soft water but purified filtered water?

Does the steam dryer require a water connection

I would like to know if there is a holding tank that you fill with water for steam or do I need to have a water hose connection?
Asked by: russ
No the steam dryer does not need a water connection. If you visit the product support page the manual has more information on how the steam works. Also how to use the water feeder for the steam drying function.
