Washing impure clothes in the washing machine

Q: In an automatic washing machine we just have to put the clothes and the detergent and it automatically fills water and washes the clothes as well as it automatically drains the water after washing. Will the impure clothes become paak or pure? Some scholars say that washing impure clothes in an automatic washing machine does not make it paak.

A: It will be paak.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
