Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Open Question

I also have the holes in the front of my shirts, around the belly

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.

Good luck!

SOURCE: i am finding tiny holes in the sleeves and fronts

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.

I am looking for a good online website where you can personalize t-shirts. any suggestions?


If you are a t-shirt buyer and want personlized the t-shirt for itself then you can go with customink,ooshirts,teespring etc
But if you are a t-shirt seller or eCommerce portal owner then you can buy software from inkyROBO and you can facilitate your users for custom t-shirt designing.

My machine makes pin size holes in thin t-shirts and not other clothes. It has ruined several new shirts-help!


It's a nasty twisty thing, my dear. It happens in just about every machine. The only thing you can do to be absolutely sure is to put those thin t-shirts in a pillow case, Strap it closed with one of those "what's those hand-cuffy things called" things? and pray you don't get small pin-sized holes in your pillow case.

Circles on my laundry


first lets figure out if its coming from, do you notice them before drying??? solid circle or a ring? streaks would be more a common complaint, but a complete circle?? does it come off in next cleaning ??

Help - my clothes are tearing


I've heard of this often and don't know of any fixes.
I would suggest getting womens hosiery or Halloween spider web cotton and running it around inside to see if it snags.
make sure the basket arms inside are not loose. rock them hard while holding the drum. sometime those arms come loose and pinch the clothing.
