\"Spin speed may be selected on some washers to provide a \"regular\" and a \'slow\' or \'gentle\' spin. On single speed washers, spinning time may be shortened to minimize wrinkling. Regular spin speed removes most of the water and therefore shortens drying time. A slow or short spin should be used for permanent press garments. Washable woolens should be given regular spinning after a gentle wash.\" (source: http://www.cleaning101.com/laundry/fact/fact_sheet7.html)
