I am new to screen printing and had the same problem a few weeks back. Im curious to know what the solution is as well.
FYI - also check the material content of the hoodies - unlike many shirts which are 100% cotton, lots of hoodies are a mix and you may need a non-bleed ink. I also chuck them through the conveyor drier first to make sure I don't have any shrinkage issues after the the initial flash in a p-f-p. I also found with a blended hoodie, my flash time reduced significantly, when compared to a cotton t-shirt. normally 12 seconds for me on a shirt to make the ink tacky - reduces down to 8 seconds with the same ink, same flash height for a blended hoodie, (flash not adjusted for the extra hoodie thickness).Sounds like you are might be printing with white ink. Raise your off contact, soften the ink and make sure you clear the screen.
