Clothes with pin holes are seen afetr washing/drying with He2 plus/He Washer dryer combination
We have in some our clothes (mostly T shirts and kids shirts) holes that are no more than 1/6th /1/8th inch diameter near the stomach/abdominal region of these garments. These holes seems to develop after two to three wash cycles. As many as four to five are observed and they grow with additional cycles. We use Kenmore H2 plus upright washer and HE 2 upright dryer. We think this si due to the dryer since we do not see these holes after we started to hung-dry these clothes. We use wash/dry cycles based on the type of garments. Any thoughts on this issue?

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.
i believe the stains are actually semi burn marks. If you are drying your whites try a lower heat setting. i had this problem with my kenmore dryer before too. Got bad especially with towels. Make sure your vent is not clogged and your filter is cleaned regularly to let the heat flow better. should help.
Verify unrestricted air flow at the outside discharge port for the dryer. If in doubt, pull the hose from the rear of the dryer, turn it on andform an opinion about air flow volume, then outside must be very similar.
Make sure you check your exhaust line and where the air blows to the outside. If your exhaust vent or hose is bent or restricted it will take a very long time to dry the clothes. Sometimes the vent flap on the outside exhaust is stuck shut. Clear dryer exhaust venting is critical for proper operation. Several companies offer a vent cleaning service where they completely clean out the exhaust lines.
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.
When you wash clothes, they lose fibers from the agitator and unfortunately when you hang dry them the fibers from eachother or other articles of clothing stick to it making them look like they have lint on them. Drying them in the dryer removes this lint. I suggest drying them in the dryer and to prevent wrinkles hang them as soon as possible after dryer stops other than that I know of no solution in the wash for this problem. Good Luck.
We purchace a washer and dryer in Dec 08 Kenmore HE energy star. They started destroying cloth about 2 months after purchace.
