I usually mix other clothes with quilts or blankets when I wash them in the washing machine. Sometimes the machine jumps up and down while rotating fast. This doesn't happen all the times so I was wondering whether there is some configuration of how to put the blanket (perhaps try to spread it out as much as possible?) in the washing machine.
How can I minimize the chances of putting a quilt or a blanket in my washing machine and it not hopping up and down? Also is it a bad idea to put other clothes inside? Should I wash just the blanket?
Update: it is front loader
