    I have washed 3...

    I want to say that I did the laundry and to point out that I turned on my washing machine three times. What word or phrase could I use here?
    For example:
    A:What have you done this morning?
    B:I have tidied my flat and I have washed 3 ____________ of clothes this morning.

    That doesn't necessarily mean the same, by itself.
    You can say. "I did the washing this morning. I washed three loads."
    Remember that all numbers under 10 should be written out in full in a sentence, as you did with "three times".
