    It probably won't wah very well and if you overfill it it can throw itself around somewhat. Centre of gravity and all that malarkey. But if its a single duvet you seem to have little choice. Unless you find a bigger washing machine. Remembering also you have to have enough room to get the water in there.

    Usual advice is half to 3/4 full I believe

    and hello GG btw :hello:

    If you were feeling particularly energetic you could handwash it

    My washing machine rips stuff if u put too much in

    The only home machine you could really wash a duvet in is the Dyson ones because they're huge. Otherwise, bag it up and take it down the launderette and they can wash them there.

    Enough people have said this now but you should always leave space in a washing machine (and should check the filter frequently, there's a tip of the day). My Dad fixes them and talks about them non stop, so I seem to be drawn to washing machine problems.

    With a duvet, a lot of it is air so it will shrink considerably when it's wet. Unless you're particularly sentimental about your duvet and would kill yourself if something went wrong, I'd risk it.

    The filter is bottom right on the front of the machine, you can open a little panel and pull out anything thats been caught in there. Blocked filters cause the early death of more machines than you'd think, just because people don't check them or realise how easy it is to fix!
