Q: How many times we should wash impure clothes in an automatic washing machine to make them pure? Washing once in a fully automatic washing machine is enough or not for making clothes paak (pure) or I need to wash three cycles?
A: The safer procedure is to wash the impure area out of the machine first and then put it into the machine.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
