Using a washing machine to clean impure clothes? If no traces of impurity are left.



In The Name Of Allah, The Most-Merciful, The Most Kind


Imam Quduri explains “Cleaning off impurity…is to wash it until it is believed by the washer to be pure.” [Vol 1, P 21] In this sense, use common sense. A washing machine cleans a garment several times through a normal cycle. As long as there are no traces of impurity left, it is pure.
