Circles on my laundry

I have had my washer/dryer for a year. But in the last 3 months, I mysteriously have a circle appearing on shirts after they are laundered.
The circle appears on the front of the shirt, right in the mid section and is perfectly round as if someone placed a cup on one's belly. It has shown up on three different shirts by three different makers - the color of the shirts are solid red, light blue and lavender. I can't imagine what is creating this, can you?

    I am currently experiencing little circles like grease or oil all over my laundry. They are the same size as the circles in the drum but the service tec told me it was due to concentratred detergent build up. I've cleaned the washer at least 5 times but nothing seems to help. My set is the whirlpool duet sport front load.

    I also have these little round oily spots on some of the shirts that I wash that aren't there before the clothes go into the washer. I know fabric softener can stain clothes like that, so I stopped using the softener and there aren't any more spots on my clothes......I don't like not being able to add fabric softener to my cycles (especially for towels)...is there another solution?

First lets figure out if its coming from, do you notice them before drying??? solid circle or a ring? streaks would be more a common complaint, but a complete circle?? does it come off in next cleaning ??

Tiny Holes in My Cotton Shirts


If you have granite counter tops then they are ausing it - There is either a small chip in an area where you lean across a lot or your edges are too sharp ( usually with a bevel this happens). I had the same problem for 8 years! Recently put masking tape all the around the edges of my counter tops to test this. No new holes. Just paid a guy to come and smooth down the edges all the way around - expensive but the savings in therapy bills will be worth it- I had been driving myself crazy tring to figure it out and slowly eliminated all other suggestions. I read where one women just started wearing an apron and that solved it for her but I spend too much time in the kitchen for that.

Try the tape - it is a cheap (though not attractive) test. I left it on for a month to be sure. Make sure to check bathroom counters, laundry room ,etc.

Good luck!

Our washing keeps getting bleached spots / areas. Clothing has light patches.


it wont be the machinei think.
try doing a hot wash cyle on an empty machine with some descaler powder or soda crystals to clean it out.
