Default Print not holding up after one wash

This print started coming off the shirt after one wash from the customer. Not sure how the customer washed it. Since we are new to printing with white ink, I was wondering if anyone had this problem before and how they corrected it. Our process on these shirts is:
30 sec heat press @ 356F
spray 1 layer pre-treat-roll with sponge
spray 2 layer pre-treat-roll with sponge
heat press 35 sec @ 356F
hover 1 minute (we don't have a hover press yet so I feel we are not getting very close to the shirt)
press w/ light pressure & silicone paper for 2 minute @350 @ 1 minute intervals
