There are very efficient washers these days that use very little energy and water (10-24 gallons). Supposing you wash your clothes in a full machine, you would use less water than hand washing.
A top loading washer uses 140 liters of water and a newer front loader uses 54 liters of water per load. Handwashing use varies, depending on what you are washing and how you are rinsing.
Front loading washing machines can use 25-30 gallons of water each wash, while top loaders can use 40 to 57. That’s a lot of water!
Hand-washing uses far less water. Kevin Freedman, profiled in the second link below, lived on 25 liters of water a day for a month, and he hand-washed his clothes even with his tiny rations of water.
