Washer and Washing Machine History
Washing machines developed to reduce the hardship of the hand-washing process by using a sealed tub with paddles or fingers to agitate the clothing. The first machines were hand-operated.  Electricity was not available to every household until around 1930.
Water often had to be toted, heated on a fire for washing, and then poured into the tub.  This warm soapy water was precious and would be reused again, first to wash the least soiled clothing, then to wash dirtier laundry.  The earliest machine tubs were made from wood, later machines that were made of metal allowed a fire to burn below the washtub.
