Well my washing machine is at it again… (http://community.livejournal.com/laundry_reports/6904.html for anyone who does not recall my original post on this) for some odd reason it sporadically decides to just chew up certain pieces of clothing, between several washes a month and even more quere is that when it does decide it wants to ruin my clothes it only seems to attack ONE piece of clothing in an entire wash.

I have checked both my washing machine and my dryer to no avail, there is DEFINITLY nothing sharp in either of them.
I even worried that it was somehow related to my detergent so I changed that too – still no luck.
I even changed the way I put the detergent and fabric softener in, and changed the settings on the wash but STILL I find randomly one piece of clothing will get chewed up for no reason…

It’s starting to get to me now because there is no obvious cause, it’s causing anxiety inside of me when it comes to washing now because I am in constant fear a favourite garment of clothing will get ruined (and believe me I get really attached to clothes).

I just don’t know what to do… I am tempted to call my landlord and just ask for a new washer, but then there is the long wait till he can get a new (well I say new, it would be second hand knowing him) washer to me, and whether or not that will make this issue cease.

I just felt like ranting about it because it’s really doing my head in.

Have you called the people who manufacture the washer? Maybe there's been a trend in their washers eating random pieces of clothing...

I haven't actually but then it's an old washing machine so chances are it wouldn' t be covered on any warrantee :(
