My clothes get dark spots with liquid detergent
 
I have an HE machine, and every time I have tried a liquid detergent, it leaves spots on cloths that look like grease spots. Does anyone else have this problem? Anything I can do to prevent it?

can you add water to the machine before adding your clothes?

Hmm I have a problem with these spots too except I thought they were grease spots (even though I couldn't figure out where the grease was coming from). Does liquid detergent do that? When you wash with powder after does it come out?

Mine hasn't done that. We have a Whirlpool Cabrio.

I had that problem, it actually got better when I started using MORE detergent. Like someties the whole cup, past the 3 line. My washer holds like 2-3x what a regular washer does, so I guess I need more detergent to get things clean.

This happened w/ 3 different machines before I figured it out. I use Tide regular or F&G liquid.

I have the same issue with powder detergent and have no idea how to get rid of it. :(

I get these too! But it seems like only on my favorite clothes :-)
I'd love to know a cure!

Are they water spots? I thought those happened when clothes stayed wet too long.

At my house I am convinced they are caused by liquid fabric softener.
