POSSIBLE CAUSE
Chemicals such as hair bleach, dye, permanent wave solutions, battery acids and
toilet bowl cleaners may cause fabric holes. Rinse all towels and other articles that
came in contact with these chemicals before putting them in wash. Do not
contaminate clothing articles with these chemicals.
As permanent press garments age, they may show fraying at collars and cuffs. This
is normal due to weakening of fibers by the permanent press process. It is not caused
by washer. You can slow this process by washing small permanent press loads with
a large water level. Do not wash heavy items such as towels with permanent press.
Remove collar stays, when possible.
Press cycle. Refer to garment manufacturer's care labels.
Garments weakened by age, sun or atmosphere. This is inevitable and is not caused
by washer.
