Hi Katt, the less time your larger items have to spin, the less likely they are to get tangled. We suggest using the highest setting, (but always follow the manufacturer's settings on the item for drying), so that it will dry the quickest. Also, not drying alone can help break up a single large item's tendency to ball up. We also recommend a fabric softener to prevent static, as static build up can encourage items to cling and cause the issue you are describing. If after trying these suggestions, you are still having issues, please reach out to us directly via Facebook https://www.facebook.com/maytag or Twitter @MaytagCare and we will by happy to provide further assistance!
