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.

Whites are dingy. Random stains appear on my husband's dress shirts that weren't there when I put them in the wash. We have a water softener; don't know if that plays into the problems. Please help!


Put washer through a clean cycle with bleach only. Check to be sure you are using HE soap. Check the bellows(door seal) make sure it is not jamming clothes.

My washer damages clothes


You should inspect the inside of the drum for damage or something stuck in the drum perforations. I have had exactly this problem and it was caused by the wire from one of my wife's bras coming out in the wash and getting stuck in the drum perforations.

Holes in clothes


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.

IT SOUNDS LIKE THE OUTER BAND TO HOLD ON THE DOOR BOOT/SEAL. WHAT I HAVE SEEN IS THAT AN ARTICLE OF CLOTHES WAS NOT ALL THE WAY INTO THE WASHER AND IT WAS STARTED, PULLING THE DOOR BOOT INTO THE WASHER. THE ONLY OTHER THING I HAVE NOTICED WITH THIS NEW BREED OF SUPER CAPACITY WASHERS IS THAT THEY LIKE BIGGER LOADS TO HELP BALANCE THEMSELVES. IT MAY BE POSSIBLE THAT IT WAS SO SEVERLY OUT OF BALANCE THAT IT PULLED THE BOOT INTO THE TUB AS THE MAYTAGS OF THAT MODEL LINE WERE KNOWN TO NOT BE THE MOST SENSITIVE TO OUT OF BALANCE CONDITIONS. THERE IS A CONTROL BOARD KIT THAT COMES WITH A MOTION SENSOR NOW FOR THEM AS AN UPGRADE.

We have the same problem. Look at the agitators inside the washer. We found strings and material there. Not sure what or if there is a fix bout I just saw the problem 2 days ago.

GE Front load washer clothes coming out with holes/torn/even shredded


Metal inside washer drum may be faulty and causing tearing of clothes (run your finger around the inside when empty and you will feel where it snags). Had same problem, only got worse and ruined many expensive t-shirts! Replacement of drum is required and is extremely costly if not under warranty!

GE top load Washer ripping clothes


Solution!
GE has replaced the "boot" (the large rubber gasket at the opening of the washer) on my washer. This has fixed the problem!

Although the majority of people I spoke with at GE did not know about this, eventually I got a repair technician out here who spoke with one of the engineers. The engineer said that there was a problem with the boot causing clothing to rip. The new boot we have on our washer covers a ring of plastic just on the outside of the metal drum (the plastic rim remains stationary while the metal drum spins - this is the cause of the ripped clothing) - the old boot left this plastic ring exposed. Our washer was only 8 months old - so even if your washer is new, if your clothing is being ripped, insist that the boot be replaced for an updated version.

Good luck!
