Did you follow the manufacturer's
directions when adding
detergent and fabric
softener?

Is there above average iron (rust) in water?
You may need to install an iron filter.

sort the load?

water?
Use more detergent for washing heavy soils in cold or hard
water.

Garment damage
Check the following:
