washing machine woes - what are these marks?

For the second time in a few weeks there have been white marks on my dark clothes when I've taken them out of the washing machine. They are like cloudy coloured splotches and they are everywhere. I've tried hand washing them but the marks won't come out. Three of my tops are now ruined. They aren't expensive tops but they were my favourite and I can't afford to buy anything new. I'm feeling really sad as my limited wardrobe already depresses me.

1. What could these marks be?

2. Are my clothes salvageable?

Please help.

P.s. None of DP's clothes have a mark on them. Sod's law!

We had that when our washing machine was on its last legs. No idea what the marks were and impossible to get out. sorry not much help!

Thanks for your reply. I hope it's not on its last legs. Any more suggestions out there?

Have your clothes been bleached? I think this kind of thing has happened to me. It may help to put your machine through a v. hot wash with powder but no clothes, and check that the pipes are clear.
