Teaching children to wash clothes

How old should a child be when they learn to wash clothes? Is 8 too young? Does the minimum age change based on whether it's a girl or a boy?

Gender does not matter. A boy needs to learn as much as a girl does. As far as age, they are never too young to learn how to clean up after them selves. My kids help me with the laundry all the time. They help load the washer and dryer and after I fold the clothes they put them away. My kids are only 7, 5 and 2. the 2yr old dosnt put away but she will help load the washer and the dryer.
