We have a Frigidaire side loader, with no RFI, and uses very little water. It's about 6 months old. Although my mother used to swear by her gasoline powered wringer washer. 8^)

Giving some thought, I'll bet that 2-stroke engine on that thing put out scads of RF.

"Some" toilets can have the flush increased by increasing the stand pipe height.  not all have the height available.  If you aren't good with plumbing, better find someone who is.  Shower heads are relatively cheap although the restrictor may also aid the dispersion/spray pattern, but be careful with toilets.
