Water softener or filter or both

My well water is staining the toilet, tub, sinks and leaving white clothes dingy.

I had the water tested and the results are:

pH: 6.8 ph
Iron: 0.2 mg/L
Manganese: 0.5 mg/L
Hardness: 8 GPG
Hardness: 136.8 mg/L
TDS: 243 mg/L
ORP: 337 mV

Based on these results and a usage of 1500 gal/month, what would be the best system for me ?
Some say a water softener only system.
Some say a hybrid ferrilite/softener system.
Some say just get the Whirlpool water softener that Lowes sells.

I just want something that will work at a reasonable price.

Main goal is to be able to wash white clothes without staining,
and to reduce or eliminate staining on toilet, tub, sinks.
