any washing machines that still pump water through a lint filter?

Incidentally, an excellent substitute for phosphates in detergent is citric acid. You can buy it in bulk and it only takes a little bit per load. Good for the dishwasher and washing machine.

Agree. I've never seen a machine that used anything but clean water.

Yeah I guess I did miss the point.
My 25 year old washing machine has never once done anything wrong.
I put the cloths and soap in and nothing else has even needed to be done.

Whirlpool called that Sudzmiser (spelling?) We had one for about 16 years. Pink.

That my current machine also does, by sucking the clothes down into the water. it makes t hem circulate like a doughnut rotating along its length.

I remember the filter. Unfortunately my 1979 Sears Whirlpool has a lint chopper. I can't imagine it works as well, but it takes less effort on my part.

Unless there are two things, it only pumped water from the tub once, to fill the machine for the second load. After that, the water circulated through the machine the same as it did during the first load.
And it only pumped the water into the tub once, at the end of the wash cycle. (In t heory you could use the same wash water over and over, but it got less hot, back in the days when everyone washed with hot water, and it got more dirty.)
The purpose of reusing the water was aiui mostly to save on heating cold water, and less, in most parts of the country, on the prcie of water,
Because with women, the wash water is pretty clean after the clothes have been washed. OTOH, with me, the water is too dirty to reuse. In fact I sometimes drain the tub and put in new water and new soap. before getting to the rinse.

We didn't have a separate tub. We had a hose that went into the only tub, and another hose that went into a metal tube that went through the water sometimes in the tub, straight to the drain. I'm sure many many people in Indy at the time had that setup and the washing machine delivery man knew exactly what to do, and had the parts in his truck already.

To save money. She was told the second load would come out clean and indeed it did.

Indeed, though it sometimes occurs to me that I should wash my hair as soon as I get in the tub. But I don't always do that. I think a little dirt gives my hair body. So it's not fly-away.

Good point. I woudl ask my mother about that if she were still around. (Would be 106 if she were.)

Interestingly, at least to me, my mother got a front loader some time between 1945 and 1950. She had to leave it behind when we moved. Too heavy to be worth moving.

The salesman at Sears that sold me my washing machine said it had a "passive" lint trap.
I have come to learn that "passive" means that the lint all gets trapped in the pockets of your clothes, and the machine itself has no lint trap whatsoever. Passive means none.

What could be more passive than that?
But seriously, if the salesman knew this, he's a liar.

Those all cause harm.
And new detergents have enzymes. I thought that was a hoax until I read that people at the factory were getting sick from them. I'm sure now they wear masks or something.
My impression is that dirtier clothes get clean, compared to before when if I let clothes or rags get that dirty, they would never get clean.

Well, Comrade, yes the Party says those all cause harm. For example, the DDT that saved people from dying of Malaria. My view is that a lot of that "harm" was the nattering nabobs wanting to ban things that worked.
