Washing impure clothes in a washing machine

Q: Is washing soiled impure clothes with semen and such in 40°c water with 45 min wash in the machine sufficient to make them pure? Even if u may still see stains.

A: Precaution requires that you wash out the impurity before putting the clothing into the washing machine. However, if the impurity is removed after getting washed in the washing machine, the clothing will be paak.

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