Kenmore 4027 leaving grease like spots after washing, what could be the cause?

I bought my Kenmore washer over a year ago. Within the last 6 months I have noticed that after washing clothes they end up coming out with spots/streaks that look like grease marks. This is most noticeable on men's button dress shirts which are usually washed on the delicate cycle. Sometimes they are small spots scattered throughout the shirt but a couple times the streaks have been huge and you can see them on the inside and outside of the shirt. I was using softener when washing the clothes and read that this could be the cause so I stopped using the softener but it still seemed to happen. I have also tried switching to powder instead of liquid detergent. I have tried putting vinegar in the softener cup and running that through a couple time thinking maybe the line is gunked up by the softener. When trying to get the spots out with stain remover and liquid dish soap it does not work. I am at a lose of what could be causing this as nothing seems to be working and have wrecked several very expensive shirts. Any ideas would be helpful!
