Is there any issues that i don't know about.. Seems like lots of laundry comes out very spotty (ruined).. I already ruined a tie dye shirt, a pair of shorts, and a pair of white socks...

Spotted w/ what? Rust, maybe? If so it's your washer or dryer. You might have a rusted piece of metal stuck somewhere, like a nail or washer, in the machine.

I know that the water there is very hard and I used to always add some Calgon Water Softener to mine.

Are you using a powder detergent? I used to get white spots with powder detergents that did not fully dissolve. Since I switched to a liquid detergent this never happens to me anymore.

Maybe it's fabric softener. In my old machine, the fabric softener used to ruin my clothes.

I agree with this one... if youre using a powder detergent, then it is definitely the problem!
