The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) performed ablution by washing the body parts once.

Sahih/Authentic. - [Al-Bukhari]

Explanation

When the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) performed ablution, he would sometimes wash each organ of the organs of ablution once - washing the face - including rinsing the mouth and sniffing water into the nostrils - and the hands and feet once. This is the due amount.
