    need to do something/need doing something

    I saw them in Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary. It has 2 examples:
    -This shirt needs to be washed.
    -This shirt needs washing.
    Is there the difference in meaning between them. If so, what it is?
    Thanks

    There is no difference in meaning.
