It took 2 months, but I fixed my repelling issue!
 
i am SO happy! after trying everything, i found a suggestion on a random web-site:
  1. soak dipes in HOT water (i bumped my water heater all the way up & added 4 big pasta pots full of hot water to the load) w/ a capful of sportwash. i also added a capful of calgon b/c i have really hard water.
  2. run a prewash & the longest/hottest cycle w/out anything added.
  3. run 6 total rinse cycles.
for good measure, i repeated all 3 steps & voila! they are no longer repelling. YAY!!!

congratulations! repelling issues have been one of my most frustrating time with my dipes! i fixed my problem with HOT HOT water, some dawn, and some elbow grease. it's such a good feeling to have properly working dipes again!
