Did you yourself write these sentences? Study the verb tenses more and then try to add the context or write a dialogue to make the sentences clearer.

Remember One And Only Rule:

But for modal verbs never ever use more than 3 verbs in one predicate:

...has (had) been washed; will (would) have been washed; is (was) being washed; might be being washed; should have been washing; whatever... but never more than 3 verbs (but a modal verb).
