Water filtration for washing machines?

I’m hoping some day to get a washing machine, but the whole house water filtration that was installed here does not filter the water sufficiently to safely wash my clothes with. I would also have problems with the rubber residues from most hoses.

In Toronto we rigged up a Y hose with a shower filter to one of the intakes on the old machine, and controlled the water temperature manually from the taps instead of via machine, but the water pressure was nearly non-existent in that house.

I’ve been told that regular shower filters would crack from the water pressure in a place with normal water pressure if used on a washing machine.

Does anyone know if there are any water filters that are designed to be safely attached to washing machines?
