We have a new Samsung front loader. We ran a new set of towels on the "towels" setting. One of the towels has a bunch of "pulls" and strings hanging from it as a result. Is this a case of a defective towel or is the front loader the problem?

Common problem with cheap Wal-Mart towels. If towels can't handle being spun in a washer drum, then it's either an inferior weave or cruddy thread material. Where'd you buy these towels?

Restoration Hardware. Should be a premium towel.

Hmm, the wash results would seem to indicate otherwise. Could just be a defective lot; maybe just getting rid of weave artifacts and subsequent washes will be okay.

I told my wife to continue washing. If more exhibit this issue, they are going back! RH charges a premium and I expect premium towels in return!
