How To Retrieve Your Missing Socks from your washer!


The missing socks magician show is not the magic show you want to be part of. Since socks are such a small clothing item, they sometimes will end up slipping in between the inner and outer drum of the washing machine during the spin cycle. We can never be certain that your washer ate your socks but this is very likely and definitely worth investigating!

Option 1:

Simply reach in between the door gasket with your hand to find your missing socks. Sometimes using a flat head screwdriver will help to make this process easier. Just wedge the screwdriver in between the inner drum and the door seal so you can reach for the socks that are trapped inside more easily.

Option 2:

If you weren’t able to find the socks between the inner drum and the door seal they might have fallen underneath the drum. To access underneath the drum you will have to either remove the heater or the sump hose.


Never Lose Your Socks Again!

Tip 1:

Safety pin your socks together! This may be a little tedious depending on how many pairs of socks you wear a week, but it will ensure you don’t lose your socks! This tip will also save you time on pairing your socks later on. It’s a win-win!

Tip 2:

Place your socks in a washable mesh bag and throw the bag full of socks in your washer. This tip is guaranteed to work because your socks cannot escape the mesh bag unless there is a hole in it.

Tip 3:

Purchase a sock clip that is washer and dryer safe. Clip each pair of socks together with the clip and you should never lose them again!
