Much of this is a marketing con to make you believe the machine has more features than it really does. Most machines can really do only about three or four basic washes:

The inner drum is the one you can see when you open the door or the lid. In a front-loading clothes washer, common in Europe, the drum stands upright. You push your clothes inside the door from the front and the whole drum rotates about a horizontal axis (like a car wheel). The drum has lots of small holes to let water in and out and paddles around the edge to slosh the clothes around. In a toploader, more common in the United States and Asia, you open a lip on top and drop your clothes into the drum from above. The drum is mounted about a vertical axis but doesn't actually move. Instead, there's a paddle in the middle of it called an agitator that turns the clothes around in the water.

Parts of a washer: The washer consists, firstly, of two drums -one inside the other. The inner drum is the one you can actually see when you open the washer door or lid (and the one that you need to clean regularly!) In a front loading washing machine, the drum stands horizontally.

1) a high-temperature, long-duration wash for white laundry that uses a fairly high spin speed and lots of water;

Cleaning washing machine is easy with vinegar, but it must be run empty without clothes and detergents.

2) a slightly faster, lower-temperature wash for colored cottons that uses similar spin speed and water volume;

You open the front door, drop all your clothes, place a bit of liquid or powder detergent in the detergent drawer, and the then the whole drum rotates on a horizontal axis.

The two drums are the most important parts of a clothes washer, but there are lots of other interesting bits too. There's a thermostat (thermometer mechanism) to test the temperature of the incoming water and a heating element that warms it up to the required temperature. There's also an electrically operated pump that removes water from the drum when the wash is over. There's a mechanical or electronic control mechanism called a programmer, which makes the various parts of the clothes washer go through a series of steps to wash, rinse, and spin your clothes. There are two pipes that let clean hot and cold water into the machine and a third pipe that lets the dirty water out again. All these pipes have valves on them (like little doors across them that open and shut when necessary).

All the important parts of the clothes washer are electrically controlled, including the inner drum, the valves, the pump, and the heating element. The programmer is like the conductor of an orchestra, switching these things on and off in a sensible sequence that goes something like this:

On a top-loader, the drum stands upright, you open the lid and drop the clothes into it. On this type of machine, the drum is mounted about a vertical axis and doesn’t actually move. Instead, there’s a tower in the center (called an agitator) that moves the clothes around in the water.

4) a woollens wash that probably uses quite a bit more water, but agitates the drum less, and spins the water out relatively slowly. Any other programs are variations of these four.
