What is causing the mystery stain to my Dockers in the washing machine?

This has happened to 3 pairs of my Dockers D3 pants over the past 3 months. Any and all possible explanations or advice for safeguards would be welcome.
Pants in question: Dockers D3 khakis, ~$30 from department store.
I'm using Dr. Bronner's as my detergent so there shouldn't be any harsh chemicals or other strange issues from the detergent.
Washing on cool water with like colors--no other new garments in the load.
The stain in question looks likes a light, white film that coats throughout the Dockers pants. It's almost light enough that you don't see it unless you look closely but still visible enough to basically ruin the pants. The stain does not respond to any sort of additional cleaning measures so far that I have thought of and remains through additional similar washing cycles. This has happened on light khaki and dark brown colors.
The stain in question does not appear on any other types of clothes that go in the load with it.
What is going on here? You can safely assume I have an elementary level of cleaning my clothes, i.e. nothing is too obvious to state because I could be doing it wrong.
