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.

Washer making holes in clothes


Feel the drum inside for any sharp object example a pin that is sticking sideways in a hole or the the drum spot-weld spots that came lose making a high spot.
I did find the same kind of a problem with a Defy front Loader machine. You can also check the gap between the door and the drum lip.
Hope this will solve your problem and save yourself from spending big bucks on new clothes.

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!

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!
