Keep Forgetting Your Clothes in the Washer? We've got a solution

5.09.22

Isn’t it the worst when you keep forgetting your clothes in the washer and then you have to clean them again? We get you, you are busy, and switching clothes over to the dryer gets pushed off to the back of your to-do list.

What if we were to tell you that you don’t have to deal with the constant re-washing of clothes because you are busy? What if we told you that you can leave your clothes in the washing machine for hours after the load is complete without ruining anything?


We have a very simple solution: get a washer that has an extended wash cycle, or fresh hold to ensure that your clothes are not getting moldy fast.

What is an Extended Cycle or Fresh Hold?

Different brands have different names for their extended cycle, but they are basically the same thing. Once the washing machine has completed its regular cycle, it continues to spin the clothes occasionally to keep them fresh.


Typically, the washing machine will spin your clothes every so often over the course of several hours after the clean cycle has been completed. So, basically, you have several more hours to move your clothes over to the dryer.

Popular Machines with Extended Cycles

There are three major brands that offer some sort of Extended cycled or Fresh Hold. Those appliances are:


Maytag Fresh Hold: Maytag offers many appliance models that have the Fresh Hold features built into the machine. Some of the models will allow your clothes to have a Fresh Hold time of 16 hours while others offer 24 hours of Fresh Hold time.

Electrolux Extended Refresh: On select Electrolux models they offer what is called an Extended Refresh mode which keeps “loads that have remained inside the machine for whatever reason and will use a rinse plus spin cycle to keep the laundry load fresh. This cycle will continue to operate on intervals for up to 12 hours.”

Whirlpool Fresh Care: Whirlpool also offers an option to keep your garments fresh for longer. Whirlpool has a Fresh Care option that steams and tumbles your laundry for up to 6 hours after the cycle has finished.

You Don’t Have to be on Top of the Laundry

There are so many things going on in your life and that is why many different popular brands are trying to come up with innovative technology to make your life easier. Maytag, Electrolux, and Whirlpool understand that you sometimes can’t move the clothes right away and that is OKAY!


Stop fretting about moving your clothes over and get a washing machine that allows you a few hours of wiggle room.
