Here's how the process generally works:

  1. Preparation: Sort the clothes based on color, fabric type, and level of soiling. Check clothing labels for specific washing instructions.

  2. Loading the Washing Machine: Place the clothes in the washing machine drum, ensuring not to overload it to allow for proper agitation and cleaning.

  3. Adding Detergent: Add the appropriate amount of detergent or soap to the washing machine. The detergent is typically diluted in water as the washing machine fills.

  4. Filling with Water: The washing machine fills with water, which dilutes the detergent and creates a soapy solution.

  5. Agitation: Once the washing machine is filled with water, it agitates the clothes, causing them to move around in the soapy water. This movement helps to loosen dirt and stains from the fabric fibers suspending it in the wash water.

  6. Rinsing: After the washing cycle is complete, the washing machine drains the dirty water and refills it with clean water for rinsing. Rinsing dilutes and removes any remaining detergent residue and suspended dirt particles from the clothes.

  7. Spin Cycle: Finally, the washing machine spins the clothes to remove excess water before they are ready for drying.

Throughout this process, dilution plays a crucial role in ensuring that the detergent is evenly distributed and effective in cleaning the dirt and stains from the fabric. It also helps to prevent detergent/dirt residue from remaining on the clothes after washing.


Traditional top-loading washing machines typically fill with water to cover the clothes completely, allowing them to agitate in a full tub of water. This method of washing is sometimes referred to as "full submersion" washing.

However, newer models of washing machines, particularly high-efficiency (HE) front-loading and top-loading machines, often use less water and may not fully submerge the clothes during the wash cycle. Instead, these machines use a tumbling or cascading action along with a smaller amount of water and detergent to clean the clothes efficiently. This method is known as "high-efficiency" or "HE" washing.

In HE washing machines, dilution still occurs, but it's achieved with a smaller amount of water. The reduced water usage is more energy-efficient and can result in shorter wash cycles. Additionally, HE washing machines typically have sensors and advanced technology to optimize water usage based on factors such as load size and fabric type.

So, while the method of dilution may differ between older and newer washing machine models, the goal remains the same: to evenly distribute detergent and water to effectively clean the clothes.

Add some detergent with the dirty clothes and water and you're all set. Now all that's needed is agitation - The clothes are thrashed in the soapy water. This brings me to my point - modern washers don't agitate with the same vigor as older ones. As an example Modern Washer Agitation Cycle,
