  • I had the same issue and there is a space between the dryer wall and the tub that spins and they were getting sucked in there. I didnt find that out untill our dryer stopped working because of it. LOL also because the part that goes there to keep clothes from going in there was missing. Another thing I learned was that sometimes they get attached to other clothes lol when you take them out.

  • Me too! It is ridiculous! My daughter wears a uniform to school. This year I bought her 10 PAIRS of uniform socks! Now she has 2! I had to hand wash them last night.

  • Ours can get sucked into the drain from the washer. It was a horrible mess to clean. Now we use those mesh bags for the kids socks and we use small safety pins to keep our pairs together in the washer and dryer....

  • I seriously got so sick of buying my girls socks all the time that I started hand washing them and putting them in a separate dirty clothes basket. It's really helped too! Now instead of buying socks every 2-3 months, it's like every 6-8 months =)

  • I had the same problem. I bought a bag for delicates to place them in and that seemed to help. You could always try that.
