Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Last year I noticed that my thinnest cotton t-shirt suddenly develped a handful of tiny holes around the belly button. These holes were all concentrated in an area the size of a quarter. Today I noticed another shirt (slightly thicker cotton) has the same problem.
I'm ruling out the washing machine and insects, because if I did have this problem I think I would see holes in random places on my shirts, not just in the same area.
I'm skeptical about the wear and tear from the pants button, since the second shirt is loose and flowy. I also wear an apron when I wash dishes, so I really can't figure out what causes this. Unfortunately, now two of my favorite shirts are ruined. I wonder why it doesn't happen to my not-favorite shirts. Murphy's Law?

SOURCE: Tiny Holes in My Cotton Shirts
If you have granite counter tops then they are ausing it - There is either a small chip in an area where you lean across a lot or your edges are too sharp ( usually with a bevel this happens). I had the same problem for 8 years! Recently put masking tape all the around the edges of my counter tops to test this. No new holes. Just paid a guy to come and smooth down the edges all the way around - expensive but the savings in therapy bills will be worth it- I had been driving myself crazy tring to figure it out and slowly eliminated all other suggestions. I read where one women just started wearing an apron and that solved it for her but I spend too much time in the kitchen for that.
Try the tape - it is a cheap (though not attractive) test. I left it on for a month to be sure. Make sure to check bathroom counters, laundry room ,etc.

Check for any small pieces of sharp metal in your washer tub on the front and back where the tub has a seam and is welded together. (you will need a flashlight and will have to put your head inside the washer to see this.) Check very carefully it could be very small. I have seen the stray metal welded into the tub and the tub would have to be replaced. Also check your dryer for anything sharp or holes in the front and back seals. Please rate this post.
