Re: GE Front load washer clothes coming out with...
I have the same washer and my clothes get ripped all the time, too. It took me a while to figure out that it is the washer and so now it's out of warranty. GE won't do anything even though it's happened since we bought the machine. My girlfriend just bought this same machine and is having the same problem. I've seen on other websites that replacing the drum doesn't fix the problem. I'm tempted to take legal action because we've lost so many clothes to the washer.
Regarding the washer stopping mid-cycle, we had a technician come out and he cleaned out the filter and things worked fine. It happened again and we just had to clean out the filter to get it working again. (The filter in that machine can **** in entire socks, etc. and block the ability to drain.) If you take off the bottom panel of the washing machine, the filter is in the middle and you can pull it out to see if there is stuff blocking it. You'll need a screw driver and a bucket 'cuz there is usually lots of water in there.

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!

Had that problem for a while with mine, It seemed to do it once in a while....then we stopped putting our jeans/pants in with the rest of the colors. and it stopped happening. we was our pants seperatly with them zipped and buttoned now, have not had anymore ripped or torn clothes since.
Hope it helps.
Most likely to be something lodged in one of the holes inside the drum - commonly a wire from an underwired bra!
Examine the internal surface of the drum carefully with your hands to see if you can find anything protruding. If you find anything it does not belong there. Use a pair of pliers to gently but firmly remove it, maybe having to twist it to take account of the fact that it will now be bent.
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.
i think your on the right track but a couple of things you need to know first that model washer wont spin tiny loads or one articles of clothing it has a device in the motor called a tachogenerator to balance if you have only a small load it cant sense the balance and most of the time will only rock back and forth second your pump is the most likely culprit if you look in side the washer you will see a seem in the tub next to that will be one of the washer tumblers take the screws out of that tumbler slide it forward there will be a hole there rotate the tub to your right and you will find the hole going down to the drain pump can check it there but i don't think you'll find any thing as that is a larger hole it think your drain pump is now if you have a shop vac this is time to vacuum the water of the tub and all the way down the drain hole for the next stage usally i tell customers to remove the drain hose from the stand pipe and vacuum the water ou of the washer from the drain hose but because of the pillow this might not work in your case.now remove the two screws on the front lowerpanel and pull the panel
Frigidaire washer sucks. I'm tired of this useless machine ripping my clothes. You need to change your bellows(boot) kits around the door on front load. I have changed this kit twice now and each time, I spent $200 in repair fees. I wished I never bought this washer. Will never recommend to anyone i know.
I've had this probelm as well and I suspect it to be the gasket that goes around the opening of the washer in your case(s). Mine is torn nearly halfway around and I believe the clothes are getting caught there. I called in for service two weeks ago but they keep telling me that the part is on backorder. Not a great problem to have with two toddlers!
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.
It sound like a belt problem. Try to move tub manually first, in case it move smoothly -open the front panel, the belt should be between the motor and the drive pulley (lower front). In case it torn or not in its place, you should replace it.
In case it doesn't move smoothly - maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub and prevent tub's spining. If this is the situation, it should be removed.
Good luck !!
