Bismihi ta'ala

Touching something will not break one's wudhu`, unless it is the touching of a dead human body after it gets cold, and before it is washed. 

For anything else, najis or not, just touching it will not break wudhu`. Of course, if it is wet, and your hand gets contaminated with najasah, all you need to do is wash it. 

As for touching something dirty, the same thing, and no, from a shar'i perspective it is not necessary to 'wash' your hands if it is just dirty and not najis. 

And Allah knows best.

Asalamu Alaykom, 

Unlike Wudu which must have muwalat (successive continuity) ghusl may be done in parts; therefore, you may wash only your head for example, and then come back later to wash other parts of your body. So if you didn't wash a part, you may go back and do it as part of the same ghusl.

May Allah grant you success



Asalamu Alaykom, 

If the ayn an najasa was still left on the clothes (for example pieces of fecal matter) then yes they would be najis. However if it was only stains left such as blood stains, then this wouldn't  be najis as the actual najis substance has been removed. 

May Allah grant you success 


If the washing machine is connected to the tab water, then it will be Taahir along with all the clothes inside it. If there is no connection with tab water or any Kurr water, and water used is less than Kurr, then Najis cloth will remain Najis unless it is washed and rinsed twice with Taahir water.
