answer 8
Although every electric blanket I've seen says they are washable, and gives instructions on how to do so, in my experience washing them is not a good thing to do. I have never known an electric blanket to survive a washing. I've grown up using them (I'm 56), and have learned the hard way that washing an electric blanket is the best way to kill it. They just never seem to work properly, if at all, after they've been through the washing machine. I always use mine on top of a sheet and under a comforter so that keeps it relatively clean.
My advice - don't wash it, no matter what the instructions say if you want it to continue working!

Maybe you have one that isn't working right? I have a twin size that heats up in a minute or so. I think you're right about some parts of the blanket not getting total heat but I figured that was just because I only turned mine up to 3. A trick I did on cold nights was turn it up to high before I got into bed to warm up it up and then turned it down once I was in. Maybe that will help??

answer 9
I just purchased the queen size and I'm returning it because it never does really heat up. It just gets to a "barely warm" stage when set on high, and never seems to get any warmer. I thought that perhaps mine was defective, but since you said that yours isn't heating well either, I'm guessing that maybe it's just a lousy product! I guess it's true that you get what you pay for, and unfortunately, electric blankets are getting rather pricey these days!

Not sure why yours does not heat up quickly. Mine is warm in approximately 45 seconds to a minute. Maybe try starting it out on High then lower it. I registered mine for the warrantee although I don't think it's necessary but perhaps contact Sunbeam for a replacement if High does not heat yours up faster.

Pre-heat is crank it up to 10 about an hour or two before beddy-bye. Don't forget to turn it off and then turn it back on right before you get in bed for real so it won't turn itself off in the middle of the night (has a 10 hour timer).

You lie under it, not on top of it, so I think it is a blanket not a mattress warmer. We use it to preheat the bed by turning it on a couple of hours before bedtime, then turning it off for sleeping (you are not supposed to sleep with electric blankets on). We have a down comforter over it, so it acts to preheat the sleeping area. It isn't on all night, but it makes it nice to get into the bed.
