Most likely it's one of two problems with your fleece. It could be that it was actually for use to make outerwear and was waterproofed for that purpose. It's apparently possible to strip this off but it's very difficult. Lots of hot hot washes and strong detergent.
Other possibility is that a build of detergent is causing the fleece to repel water. Same solution would apply here except with less detergent and use baking soda and vinegar in the rinse.
I wouldn't think the same problem would occur with ME liners as they are made for this purpose (don't have any though so I can't speak from experience).
Just to clarify what Kristina said there are actually two types of ME stay-dry liners. One, the "reusable stay-dry liners" (found in the Diapering Accessories section of the website), are made strictly to keep baby dry and are used like the fleece ones you're using now. The other, "Snap In Dry Liner" or "Absorbant Liner Dry" (found in the diapers section of the website), are made to add absorbancy AND keep baby dry. These are actually just regular ME liners/doublers with the stay-dry lining sewn on top.
