  1. I wonder if anyone does (and if not why don't they in this day and age?) a washing machine that in the wash cycle will 'filter' the water during the wash cycle? - I mean when you come to think of it for 20minutes or so your washing is washing in dirty water all that time. I would imagine that all you need is a recirculating pump (which a lot of machines have these days anyway) and then take the dirty water away from the bottom of the drum and then through some kind of filter or filtration system to trap dirt and grit out of the water, and then through the recirculation pump and then pump the clean water (or be it clean water with detergent back in through the top of the drum , so the clothes are not washing in their own dirt . again , on the rinse cycle, instead of rinsing in dirty or soapy water, take it though a filter so the water that is extracted from the bottom of the machine is filtered then pumped back at the top of the machine filtered and clean , so it rinses in clean fresh water. Just a thought.
  2. I don't know which manufacturer it was in the old days, more than likely Hotpoint, but they used to have listed in the instruction book and in their leaflets and other media (I think even mentioned in TV adverts) that the secret to clean washing was not so much the washing cycle but that it was the rinse cycle that got the clothes clean so they boasted that there were 3 rinse cycles to get your clothes extra clean. So is that a true claim do you reckon? is the secret in the rinsing? - most modern washing machines these days have only 2 rinses, especially on a quick wash (1 rinse and 1 rinse with fabric conditioner)
