In brief: Not necessarily

Hot water for whites and if in contaminated areas where infection might be a concern.
Generally warm or cold water will clean clothes sufficiently. Vinegar in the last rinse helps kill candida and tea tree oil kills bacteria and yeast as well. Check out dr bronner's soaps.
