We had this problem with a new washing machine. Turned out the solution was to switch from a BIO washing powder to a NON-BIO!!

Didn't fix the existing holes though :-(

SOURCE: neptune top load holes in clothes

You may have something between your basket (the area where you put your clothes) and your tub (the part that holds all the water in. Check all of the holes in your basket to see if you have something sticking/ protruding out of one of them. You might also have a hole that has been bent casuing a rough edge. Next pull back the edge of your boot (the gray ,rubber part in the front) Do you have any forighn objects in there? Finnaly for the washer, check the bottom of the door. A rough area on the bottom can cause the same problem. You might also want to check your dryer. Over time the seals (the gray rings in the front and back when you look in your dryer can be worn or have a forign object caught in them. Both will cause clothes to snag and tear.

Inspect the rubber seal, and steel drum to make sure there is no foreign object sticking out, which could be tearing holes in your clothes. Also check to see if any of the holes in the steel drum are dented in. or out or misshaped, as this could cause the tumbling action of the drum to tear clothes.

I'd bet the holes are the same size as the holes in the dryer tumbler. the only thing I can think of is that your dryer isn't tumbling and the heat that is pushed through the holes is burning your clothes.

I have w460 & i keep getting small holes in tee shirt type materials help!


most likley you have a rough surface in the drum, you may have had a underwire from a bra poking through one of the holes in the drum which has now distorted the hole allowing a sharp edge to protrude inward and damage the clothes. empty the machine use a torch if needed and rotare the drum looking at the surface for inperfections (dipmles in the reflection of the surface) once found use something wood or plastic to push the burr outward) away from the clothes I used to use a soft screw driver handle to move the burr away. if its not this then check the door gasket these can wear away and start to tear clothes but this usually looks more like a burn than a small hole.

After a washing cycle on wool wash, some items are not completely wet - machine is not overfilled. there is also fluff on some of the items


Look in the area where you place the clothes. in the back area about the 2o'clock posistion there is a small hole. usually this hole which recirculates the water becomes clogged with lint. If there is n othing there, you could have a pump failure,and it is not letting the water get back onto the clothes.

Noise when spinning fast


A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth

Black, tar-like spots on some clothes after wash


Hi
Its probably coming from the outer drum of your machine. That's what holds the water. Your inner drum, what you see, is full of holes and allows the water to pass through in the drum and wash the clothes. that outer drum gets crud in it which then passes through the holes onto your clothes. the easiest way to get rid of it is to get a product called "affresh" from W mart or the big Hardware chains and follow the directions. Good Luck
