Well I was looking for the ”herself", so I think it is needed
the 'herself' part is in the suffix '-se'. if there would have been just 'spălând', then the 'herself' wouldn't have been necessary

Yes, I had to listen to the slowed-down version to get it.
I think you need the 'herself' unless you use the word bathing instead. Otherwise she could be washing anything.

It is necessary.
Yes, in this case, it certainly is, in order to clarify WHO or WHAT is being washed.
