My washing is coming out covered in an increasing amount of brown/grey bits. What are they? Old detergent maybe? How can I get rid of them?

Sounds as if you need to give your washing machine a bit of a clear out. First I'd check the filter, and give it a clean, then I'd clean out the washing powder drawer, and where it goes into the machine. Then do a hot wash (hottest possible), either with just detergent, or with a cupful of white vinegar (and with no clothes in it, or possibly an old towel or two). Hopefully that will sort it out.

Thanks. I'll try that.
