Run a old hosiery or cotton wad (like from holloween) around the inside of the drum. see where it snags,
the drum is warranted for a very long time. (don't know exact)

My bravos washer leaves holes in my clothes. Brand new shirts go in and come out with holes


You would have to feel around inside of tub for sharp areas on the tub. If and when you find these areas you will need to make a repair some how. Also check your agitator, it may have sharp edges, or may be cracked. Good Luck Friend.

Check the drum surface of your dryer for possible object that may be stucked in the drum holes that may cause damage to the clothes. You may do similar checks of the washer drum if your dryer drum checked negative.

Good hunting.

You need a new drum. Those holes are caused by the sharp edges of the baffles which cause the clothes to tumble.

If you can find the sharp edge you could put epoxy putty on it. However if it is 12 months old, it should be a warranty issue as you have only just found out what is causing it.

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.

Holes in Clothes


You'll need a drill with a wire brush attachment and take that to the front of the heating element. The heating element gets a lot of crud built up on it and yes it'll put holes on clothes.

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.

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.

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!
