It's been almost 2 months now since my washing machine finished its useful life. I had to educate myself on the new technology for washers and dryers because it has changed so much since I bought mine almost 30 years ago.
My old washer was a sud-saver, which meant the water could be reused. You wash the least dirty/whites first then the water gets sucked back in the machine to use for the next load. I saved a lot of water over the years, but that is a thing of the past. My new washer uses 70% less water per load. It will be interesting to see the affect it has on my water bill. I have more freedom now that I don't have to plan my loads in order to use the sud-saver. If I just want to do one load I can. I also think the wash comes out cleaner.
