There is an old problem with the DXF translation which may not have ever been fixed. The only objects I have ever been able to import successfully to DW by DXF have been polygons. Lines go off scale by a factor of 12 (as in inches to feet) and consequently their location relationship to the polygons is also messed up, probably by a factor of 12 also.

Is it possible that the information that you are missing is the DW DXF import are there, but 1/12 th smaller and off of where you would expect them, in relation to the polygons that did translate correctly?

I can't remember if grouping the lines beforehand makes any difference. It probably doesn't.
