Front loader, cold wash, hang the washing in the UV solar energy system to kill the bugs. Hot water washing is over rated. A big plus of front loaders is approx 1/2 the water consumption. So 75L for a full wash as opposed to 150L. That’s a lot of water to use once and send back down the plug. We are on tank water so this is a strong point to consider for the summer time. My machine then pumps into a grey water holding tank that I can use to water the garden.
