Balance, balance, balance. Separate/sort/load by weight (when wet, so keep absorbency in mind. Imagine the clothes soaking wet). A heavy cotton towel holds more water than a thin sheet or polyester shirt. Having one heavy item mixed in with a lot of light ones will create an imbalance breaking the machine, making it bang or walk across the floor. This is especially true with front loaders as they spin at very high speeds.
