anyone here had a washing machine that makes holes in their clothes?

Hello again.

Our washing machine randomly makes little holes in our clothes (only ones that are t-shirt material)

It hadn't done it for about 3 months but yesterday I found 4 different items of clothing were damaged in one wash!

There were no zips, buttons or bras in said wash so I don't know what the problem is, anyone had this before?

Thank yous x

From what I can remember a couple of years ago I had a Hoover washing m/c that did this quite often and it seemed to be quite a common problem from what I can remember from research I did on the web at that time........is yours a Hoover by any chance??

We had one that did that a few times. Were told it was something to do with the holes in the drum and the front loader. Whatever is it that happens, its when clothes are forced into the holes and so rip or tear. Usually only happens with cotton, so may be the reason for only your tshirts being affected.

Try on a slower cycle, if i remember right thats what sorted ours out was a long time ago though!

Thats funny my old hoover machine made holes in mine, had the man out a few times he kept saying it was wires from bras, when i said i wasnt missing any he produced one!!!!!!!
Ended up replacing machine in the end.

Sounds like the machine is filling up with holy water :thumbsup:

Very interesting. My hoover one did it too. Called the chaps out and everything. Got rid of it in the end. I think it was spinning too fast, as the holes did tend to correspond with the holes in the drum, and the more sheer/thin fabric was (I imagine) being pulled through at top spin and shaving itself on whatever is around the outside of the drum.

My Hotpoint Aquarius tore holes in things a few times when it was new, even on slow spin. Hotpoint wouldn't do anything. It's not happened for a few years now, still using the same machine.

Thanks for the replies so far :)

It is a Bendix (don't suppose they are connected to Hoover?) one with 1000RPM

I can't really use a slower speed, the next slowest one is for synthetics which leaves the clothes soaking still and doesn't clean as well :-(

I had a zanussi machine that ripped up a load of washing,when the guy came to look at the machine and underwire from a bra nad got stuck down one of the holes in the drum,boy did i blush lol

Mines done it aswell, No bra wires as i hand wash bras

My mum told me its were you fill it up to much, so there are to many clothes in the drum. But then my mums an odd one so dont know how true it is lol!

This actually seems to be true in some cases from what I have been reading :thumbsup:

I am going to make sure that I don't overload the machine, though I don't think I did on the wash that hole'd up 4 items at once.

If that doesn't work then I guess I will have to call someone out :-(

Bras should ideally be put in a mesh laundry bag that can be zipped up. Same goes for small things that can get caught up in the drum - kids socks, hankies etc.
