技术领域 FIELD

本发明涉及一种有以水平轴或倾斜轴为中心旋转的滚筒的滚筒式洗衣机。 The present invention relates to a drum type washing machine with a horizontal or inclined to the center axis of rotation of the drum. 一般的滚筒式洗衣机大多可连续地进行从洗涤到干燥的工作,但在此,所述的滚筒式洗衣机可无干燥过程。 Most general drum type washing machine can be performed continuously from the washing to the drying operation, but in this case, the drum type washing machine can no drying process.

背景技术 Background technique

滚筒式洗衣机通常具有以水平轴或倾斜轴为中心可自由旋转的方式配置的圆筒笼状的滚筒,通过洗涤物收纳于该滚筒内并在贮存水的外槽内旋转,以实现洗涤物的振捣洗涤。 Drum type washing machine having a generally horizontal tilt axis or center axis of the cylindrical cage-like drum arranged freely rotatable manner, and by rotation of the laundry accommodated in the outer tank storing water in the drum, the laundry in order to achieve washed vibration. 在以往所公知的滚筒式洗衣机中,在基本上为矩形的外箱的前面横开式设有投入衣类用的门体,一旦开启该门体,就可通过设置在外槽上的开口,看见设置在滚筒一端面上的洗涤物投入口。 In the conventionally known drum type washing machine, in front of the substantially rectangular outer cross-open box door is provided with inputs for clothes, once the door opening, can be provided by an opening in the outer groove, see disposed in the inlet end face of the laundry drum.

发明内容 SUMMARY

对于如此的滚筒式洗衣机,一般的消费者最不满意的一个方面为衣类的出入很难。 For such a drum type washing machine, the average consumer is most dissatisfied with one aspect of clothing is difficult to access. 即,在上述结构的滚筒式洗衣机中,洗涤物投入口处于非常低的位置,即使将洗衣机放置于专用的搁置台上,也没有完全消除衣类难投入的问题。 That is, in the drum type washing machine of the above-described structure, the laundry inlet at a very low position, even when the washing machine is placed in a dedicated resting stage, did not completely eliminate the problem difficult to put clothing. 为了克服上述缺陷,在以往市场销售的滚筒式洗衣机中,是使用倾斜轴来使滚筒的洗涤物投入口稍向上倾斜的。 In order to overcome the above drawbacks, the conventional drum type washing machine in the market, is used to tilt the axis of the drum laundry inlet is slightly inclined upward. 另外,还试图尽可能地加大洗涤物投入口。 In addition, try to increase as much as possible the laundry charging port. 但是,即使是这样的结构,对于习惯操作涡旋式洗衣机的人们来说,也并不充分。 However, even in such a structure, for people used to the scroll operation of the washing machine, it is not sufficient.

此外,作为一般的消费者所采用的洗涤方法是,将溶解漂白剂等的液体投入桶等中,再放置洗涤物,之后,将该液体和洗涤物一同或只取出洗涤物放入洗衣机的洗涤槽内,以进行洗涤。 In addition, as a general consumer washing method is employed, the liquid bleaching agent will dissolve into the tub or the like, and then the laundry is placed, after which the washing liquid and with or just removed into the wash laundry washing machine tank, for washing. 但是,在以往的滚筒式洗衣机的结构中,只将洗涤物从桶中移入洗涤槽中的情况下,液体易落到地面上,并且液体自身从桶中倒入洗涤槽中非常难。 However, when the structure of a conventional drum-type washing machine, the washing only from the tank into the washing tub, the liquid easily fall to the ground, and the liquid is poured into the washing bath from the tub itself is very difficult. 这也是滚筒式洗衣机使用不便的一个原因。 This is also the reason for a drum type washing machine using the inconvenience.

本发明的滚筒式洗衣机在于解决上述的问题,其主要目的是提供一种使用者方便使用的、特别是与涡旋式洗衣机相比,以往的有变劣倾向的使用性可得以提高的滚筒式洗衣机。 The drum type washing machine according to the present invention is to solve the above problem, its main purpose is to provide a user to conveniently use, particularly in comparison to a scroll-type washing machine, there are used conventional tendency of deterioration can be improved drum-type washing machine.

解决上述技术问题的第1发明为,一种滚筒式洗衣机,外槽设置在外箱内,在该外槽内设有以水平轴或倾斜轴为中心可自由旋转的周面大致为圆筒形状的滚筒,其特征在于,具有(a)在外箱的上表面形成、且由上盖可自由开关的洗涤物投入口,(b)形成在该洗涤物投入口下方的外槽的周面上,且由外槽门可自由开关的外槽开口,(c)形成在所述滚筒的周面上,且由滚筒门可自由开关的滚筒开口,(d)确定滚筒的停止位置的滚筒停止位置固定机构,以使该滚筒开口处于与所述外槽开口基本一致的位置上,(e)在所述滚筒停转、所述外槽门和滚筒门一同处于关闭的状态时,与该外槽门的开启动作相连动地开启所述滚筒门的门连动机构。 Solve the above problems of the first invention is a drum type washing machine, an outer groove provided in the outer box, is provided with a horizontal or inclined axis as a center axis freely rotatable circumferential surface of a substantially cylindrical shape of the outer groove drum, wherein an upper surface (a) of the outer box is formed, and a laundry inlet cover can be freely opened and, (b) forming an outer circumferential surface of the groove opening into the bottom of the laundry, and the outer tank by the outer door can be freely opened slot opening, (c) in a peripheral surface of the drum, the drum and the drum door can be freely opened by the opening, (d) determining a stop position of the drum the drum stop position fixing means , so that the drum is in the opening position of the outer groove on the opening substantially uniform, (e) in the drum is stopped, when the outer tub door and the drum door in the closed state together with the door outer groove movably connected to the opening action of the drum door open a door interlock mechanism.

采用该第1发明的滚筒式洗衣机的话,在滚筒停止的状态下,通过滚筒停止位置固定机构,确定滚筒的停止位置,以使滚筒开口处于与外槽开口基本一致的位置上,在使用者打开上盖进而进行开启外槽门的操作时,通过门连动机构,也可与外槽门的开启动作相连动地开启滚筒门。 With this first invention, a drum type washing machine, then, under the drum is stopped, by stopping the drum position fixing means determines stop of the drum position to the drum opening in a position of the outer slot opening substantially uniform on, the user opens the when the outer cover for further operation of the door opening groove, the interlocking mechanism through the door, can be connected to the movable door and opening the basket door opening operation of the outer tank. 因而无需在打开外槽门后开启滚筒门的分成2个阶段的门开启操作,使用者不必有意识地进行开关滚筒门的操作,减少了出入洗涤物之际所需的时间和工夫。 Thus after opening without opening the outer door of the drum groove divided into two stages door door opening operation, the user does not consciously switch operation of the door of the drum, reduces the time and effort required for the laundry out of the occasion.

此外,为了进一步减少使用者操作的时间和工夫,所述门连动机构可以为在所述外槽门和滚筒门一同处于开启状态时,与该外槽门的关闭动作相连动地关闭所述滚筒门的结构。 Further, in order to further reduce the time and effort of a user operation, said door interlock mechanism may be in the open state in conjunction with the closing operation of the outer tank is connected to the movable door closes the outer tub door and the drum door structure of the drum door. 由此,关闭门也不必分成2个阶段而可一次进行。 Accordingly, there is no need to close the door two stages but may be one.

另外,最好是,所述滚筒门具有由追随所述外槽门的开启动作程度的弹力朝开启方向施力的结构。 Further, preferably, the drum having a door opening operation force of the degree to follow the outer tank toward the opening direction of the door urging structure. 即,该弹力过大时,在解除滚筒门的关闭状态时,滚筒门势必会提升外槽门以开启外槽门,这样外槽门恐怕会触及使用者的手等情况。 That is, when the spring force is too large, when releasing the closed state of the door of the drum, the drum door is bound to open the lift gate outer groove outer slot door, so that the outer tub door will probably reach the user's hand or the like situation. 另外,所述弹力过小的话,尽管滚筒门的关闭状态被解除,但使用者不会发觉,并且尽管使用者开启了外槽门但也会发生滚筒门的开度不充分的情况。 Further, the spring force is too small, although the drum door closed state is released, but the user is not aware, and although the user opens the outer tub door opening of the drum door but insufficient will happen. 为此,如采用上述的结构的话,在解除滚筒门的关闭状态时滚筒门稍推上外槽门使之浮起,进而由使用者打开外槽门时,也可随之开启滚筒门。 For this purpose, as the above-described configuration, it is released when the drum door closed state of the drum door to push the outer tub door slightly so as to float, and thus opened by a user when the outer tub door, the drum door can be subsequently opened. 如此可实现安全且操作感强的门的开关。 Safe and thus can achieve a strong sense of operation of the door switch.

另外,在第1发明的滚筒式洗衣机中,可以有如下的结构,即,所述滚筒以大致在左右方向延伸的水平轴为中心可自由旋转地配置,所述外箱具有从上表面到前面向下倾斜的倾斜部,该外箱的洗涤物投入口加在该倾斜部上,所述上盖具有处于外箱的上表面且以作为倾斜部后端的弯曲部附近为弯折位置的、至少前后分割成二折的构造,在该上盖开启时,可在弯折的状态下在所述洗涤物投入口的后方待机。 Further, in the drum-type washing machine of the first invention, there may be a configuration, i.e., the drum substantially horizontal axis extending in the left-right direction is rotatably configured as a hub, said outer box having a front from the upper surface to downwardly inclined surface portion, the laundry inlet of the outer tank applied to the inclined portion, the upper cover having an upper surface in the vicinity of the outer box and the bent portion as is the rear end inclined portion bent position, at least is divided into two longitudinal fold structure, when opening the cover, can be put into stand behind the laundry opening in a folded state.

采用这种结构的话,在将上盖折二折的状态下,其厚度减薄,即使在开口部后方处于待机状态下,也不会向前方伸出。 With this structure, it will cover at two fold folded state, the reduction in thickness, even in the rear opening portion is in a standby state, does not protrude forward. 因此,可确实避免上盖影响洗涤物出入的现象。 Thus, to prevent the panel can indeed influence laundry loading phenomenon. 另外,在对设置在外槽上的开口开关的门向后方侧开启的结构时,上盖也不会影响门的开启。 Further, when the door opening switch provided on the outer side of the groove configuration open to the rear, the cover will not affect the door opening. 此外,对于身体较矮的人也可开启上盖。 In addition, physical shorter people can open the top cover.

另外,在第1发明的滚筒式洗衣机中,最好是,所述滚筒以大致在左右方向延伸的水平轴为中心可自由旋转地配置,所述外箱具有从上表面到前面向下倾斜的倾斜部,该外箱的洗涤物投入口加在该倾斜部上,设置操作键的操作板位于该倾斜部上。 Further, in the drum-type washing machine of the first invention, preferably, the drum substantially horizontal axis extending in the horizontal direction is rotatably disposed to the center, said outer box having an upper surface inclined downwardly from the front to the the inclined portion, the laundry inlet of the outer tank applied to the inclined portion, operation keys provided on the operation panel positioned inclined portion. 更好地是,开关所述洗涤物投入口的所述上盖处于中央,设有操作键的操作板和可向前自由拉出的洗涤剂容器位于该上盖的左右两侧或任意一侧。 Better still, switch the laundry inlet at the center of the cover, provided with operation keys and operation panel freely drawn out forwardly of the left and right sides of the detergent container or either side of the upper cover .

即,作为消除滚筒式洗衣机中的上述使用不便的一个方法为了与以往一般的涡旋式洗衣机相同,将洗涤物投入口不设置在外箱的前面而是在上表面。 That is, as a method of eliminating the drum type washing machine using the same as a conventional inconvenience to the general scroll type washing machine, the laundry inlet is not provided, but the front of the outer tank on the surface. 采用上述结构的话,由于不仅是单单在外箱的上表面形成投入衣类的开口部,还以从上表面向前面跨绕在向下倾斜的倾斜部的方式形成开口部,从而在洗衣机的前方处于直立姿势的使用者无不适地以舒服的姿势就可出入洗涤物。 With the above configuration, it is simply because not only on the surface of the outer box is formed into an opening portion of the clothing, but also to the inclined portion from the upper surface inclined downward toward the front is formed across the wound opening, so that the washing machine is in a forward upright posture without user discomfort can be in a comfortable position and out of the laundry. 另外,由于大致圆筒形状的滚筒应配置成可以大致在左右方向延伸的轴为中心旋转的结构,与以往一样,在外箱的上表面与前面之间的角部的内侧易成为无用空间。 Further, since the drum substantially cylindrical shape may be arranged roughly in the center axis direction of the rotating structure, as in the past, the inner corner portion between the upper surface of the front of the outer box is easy to become a dead space. 因此,即使如上述那样在外箱上设置倾斜部时,也不会减少洗涤容量,能够有效利用外箱内部的空间的同时使用更加方便。 Therefore, even when the inclined portion is provided as described above, the outer box, the washing capacity is not reduced, the space can be effectively utilized while the inside of the outer case more convenient to use.

在上述结构的基础上,由于在外箱的倾斜部设置操作板,操作板指向斜上方,使用者的姿势不会不舒适,可相对操作板以接近垂直的状态观看。 Based on the above structure, since the inclined portion of the operation plate provided in the outer box, an operation panel directed obliquely upward, a user does not comfortable posture, the operation plate may be relatively close to vertical viewing state. 为此,容易看见与设置在操作板上的操作键有关的说明图表上描述的文字等,也容易操作操作键。 For this reason, easy to see the text description chart illustrating the operation keys provided on the operation panel of the related, but also easy to operate the operation keys. 最好,表示洗涤过程的工作进度或剩余时间等的各种显示器也可设置在倾斜部。 Preferably, it represents a progress of the washing process or the remaining time and other various displays may be provided on the inclined portion. 通常采用LED或液晶等的显示器由斜向看去时很难看清,但如果显示器设置在倾斜部,可在接近其正面观看显示,从而容易看清。 LED or the like usually difficult to see the liquid crystal display when viewed obliquely, but if the display is provided on the inclined portion, can be viewed near its front display so easy to see.

此外,在上述结构中,可在关闭上盖的状态下拉出洗涤剂容器以投放洗涤剂,或者由操作板操作键。 Further, in the above structure, the upper cover can be pulled out in the closed state of the detergent container to serve a detergent, or by a key operation of the operation panel. 另外,作为将上盖朝后方侧开启的结构时,即使在开启上盖的状态下,洗涤剂容器或操作板也不会在上盖的后面,从而可在开启上盖的状态下将洗涤剂投放到洗涤剂容器中,由操作板进行键操作。 Further, as the upper cover open towards the rear side of the structure, even when the upper lid open, the detergent container or the operation panel is not in the back cover, so that the detergent can be in the open state of the top cover trafficking into the detergent container, and a key operation by the operation panel.

解决上述技术问题的第2发明为,一种滚筒式洗衣机,外槽设置在外箱内,在该外槽内设有以大致在左右方向延伸的轴为中心可自由旋转的周面大致为圆筒形状的滚筒,其特征在于,具有(a)在外箱的上表面形成、且由上盖可自由开关的洗涤物投入口,(b)形成在该洗涤物投入口下方的外槽的周面上且由外槽门可自由开关的外槽开口,(c)形成在所述滚筒的周面上的滚筒开口,(d)为开关该滚筒开口由在前后方向从中向左右分开的2扇门体构成,并且各自被朝开启方向施力的同时在滚筒门接合机构作用下维持在关闭状态的滚筒门,(e)确定滚筒的停止位置的滚筒停止位置固定机构,以使该滚筒开口处于与所述外槽开口基本一致的位置上,(f)包含有从外槽侧向滚筒侧可自由进退的一个以上的动作片并且在所述外槽门开启操作时在所述动作片的进退动作下通过解除 The second invention for solving the above technical problems, for a drum type washing machine, an outer groove provided in the outer box, a shaft extending substantially in the horizontal direction in the center of the outer tank is freely rotatable substantially cylindrical peripheral surface cylinder shape, wherein an upper surface (a) of the outer box is formed, and a laundry inlet cover can be freely opened and, (b) is formed into the peripheral surface of the opening in the bottom of the outer tank laundry and the outer tank by the outer door may be freely opened slot opening, (c) formed in the drum peripheral surface of the drum opening, (d) switching the drum door opening 2 is composed in the longitudinal direction from the right and left separate configuration, and each being biased toward the opening direction while maintaining the door in a closed state of the drum at the drum door action engagement means, (e) determining a position of the drum is stopped to stop the drum position fixing means, so that the opening in the drum and the said substantially uniform outer groove opening position, (f) contains more than one operating piece from the outer side to the groove side of the drum forward and backward freely and when the opening operation of the outer tub door at the advancing and retracting operation of the sheet by releasing 述滚筒门接合机构的接合而开启滚筒门的滚筒门连动机构。 Said engagement mechanism engages the drum door and the drum door open drum door interlocking mechanism.

采用该第2发明的滚筒式洗衣机的话,使用者只要进行开启外槽门的操作,滚筒门也会随之连动地开启。 The use of a drum-type washing machine of the second invention, if, as long as the user operation of the door opening outer grooves, the drum door opened will also interlocked. 因此,使用者不必特别有意识地进行开启滚筒门的操作,在出入洗涤物之际所需的时间和工夫得以减少。 Thus, the user does not have to be particularly conscious of the drum opening operation of the door, the time and effort required in the occasion of washing out is reduced. 另外,由于滚筒门的2扇门体在前后方向成为从中向左右分开的状态,前方侧的门体倒向面前,塞住滚筒与外槽的间隙或外槽与外箱间的间隙。 Further, since the drum door door body 2 becomes separated from the left and right front-rear direction in a state, the backward side of the front door before, the gap or clearance between the outer groove of the outer cylinder plug and the outer case grooves. 为此,在出入洗涤物之际,可防止洗涤物下落和夹持在这样的间隙中的现象。 For this reason, in the laundry out of the occasion, dropping the laundry can be prevented and the holding of such phenomena in the gap.

此外,所述滚筒门连动机构在外槽门关闭操作时,可通过所述动作片的进退动作而进行所述滚筒门接合机构的接合以关闭滚筒门。 Further, the drum door interlock mechanism when the outer groove door closing operation, the door may be of the drum engagement mechanism engages the door to close by the drum forward and backward motion of the actuating piece. 采用这样的结构的话,在进行关闭外槽门使之不开启的插销(或锁定)操作时,滚筒门与之相连动地也关闭。 With this configuration, then, during closing the outer tub door latch so as not to open (or locked) operation, the drum door is also closed movably connected thereto. 因此,使用者也不必特别有意识地进行关闭滚筒门的操作,可进一步减少出入洗涤物之际所需要的时间和工夫。 Thus, the user need not particularly be conscious of the drum closing operation of the door can be further reduced time and effort was washed out of the occasion required.

解决上述技术问题的第3发明为,一种滚筒式洗衣机,外槽设置在外箱内,在该外槽内设有以水平轴或倾斜轴为中心可自由旋转的周面大致为圆筒形状的滚筒,其特征在于,具有(a)在外箱的上表面靠前处形成、且由上盖可自由开关的洗涤物投入口,(b)形成在该洗涤物投入口下方的外槽的周面上且由外槽门可自由开关的外槽开口,(c)形成在所述滚筒的周面上的滚筒开口,(d)为开关该滚筒开口由在前后方向从中向左右分开的2扇门体构成并且其中前方侧门的尺寸在前后方向具有比后方侧门短的滚筒门,(e)确定滚筒的停止位置的滚筒停止位置固定机构,以使该滚筒开口处于与所述外槽开口基本一致的位置上。 Solve the above problems of the third invention, a drum type washing machine, an outer groove provided in the outer box, is provided with a horizontal or inclined axis as a center axis freely rotatable circumferential surface of a substantially cylindrical shape of the outer groove forming drum, comprising (a) a front outer box at the upper surface, and washing the upper cover can be freely opened inlet, (b) forming an outer groove opening into the bottom of the circumferential surface of the laundry the groove and the outer groove by the outer door may be freely opened opening, (c) formed in the drum peripheral surface of the drum opening, (d) a switch separate from the drum by the opening in the front-rear direction of the left and right doors 2 and wherein the member constituting the front side door is a rear door having a size shorter than the drum door in the longitudinal direction, (e) determining a position of the drum is stopped to stop the drum position fixing means, so that the opening in the drum and the outer slot opening substantially uniform position.

即,上述的由2扇门体构成的滚筒门成从中向左右分开的构造时,在倒向面前侧的前方侧门的突出量过大时,会妨碍洗涤物的出入。 That is, when the drum door into the door body composed of two separate left and right from the above-described structure, when excessive backward projecting front side of the front door, hinder access to the laundry. 对此,在本结构中,将洗涤物投入口设置在外箱上表面的靠前处,滚筒门中前方侧门在前后方向的尺寸短于后方侧门,从而在滚筒门开启时,即使前方侧门倒向前方,其突出量也较小。 In contrast, in this configuration, the laundry inlet provided at a front upper surface of the outer box, the front side door in the drum door front-rear direction is shorter than the size of the rear side door, so that the drum door is opened, even if the front side door Backward front, its outstanding amount is also smaller. 由此,前方侧门不会妨碍洗涤物的出入。 Accordingly, the front door does not obstruct access to the laundry. 另外,最好是,将尺寸确定为前方侧门倒向面前侧时,不会突出到比外箱前面还前方或者稍突出。 Further, preferably, the front side backward when the size determination as the front door, does not protrude further forward than the front outer casing or slightly protruding. 由此,可以避免洗涤物挂在从外箱前面突出的门上或者接触使用者的现象。 Thus, to avoid the laundry hanging on the front door or the outer casing projecting contact with the user's phenomenon.

具体实施方式 Detailed ways

下面,参照附图说明本发明一实施例的滚筒式洗衣机。 The following describes one embodiment with reference to the drum-type washing machine of the embodiment of the present invention.

正如图1~图3所示,成为本滚筒式洗衣机外形的外箱1为,在其上表面1a处设有上盖2,该上盖2形成在大致前半部分稍向外方弯曲的倾斜部1c上、并且与前表面1b相连,夹持着弯曲部B的方式从上表面1a后方的水平部1d延伸到倾斜部1c。 As shown in FIGS. 1 to 3, be present outside the box shape of a drum type washing machine is provided with an upper cover 2 at its upper surface 1a, the upper cover 2 is formed in a generally inclined outer portion slightly curved front half portion on 1C, and is connected to the front surface 1b, the bent portion B sandwiched manner from the horizontal extending portion 1d 1a is inclined to the rear portion of the upper surface 1c. 因而,从横向看时,上盖2的形状为,整体大致为く字形,并且前方向斜下方倾斜。 Thus, when the lateral view, the shape of the upper cover 2, a substantially dogleg shape overall, obliquely downward and forward.

正如图4所示,上盖2由以在左右方向大致水平延伸的中间轴2d为中心可自由铰接动作的第1盖部件2a和第2盖部件2b构成,第2盖部件2b的后端处于上表面1a的后方并且轴支在大致在左右方向水平延伸的后方轴2c上。 As shown in FIG. 4, the upper cover 2 can be freely hinging action of the first lid member 2a and a second lid member 2b is made of the intermediate shaft extending substantially horizontally in the left and right of the center 2d, the rear end of the second lid member 2b is 1a and the upper surface of the rear shaft supported in a substantially horizontally extending in the lateral direction of the rear shaft 2c. 由此,在由图3所示的上盖2关闭的状态,使用者抓住凹设于第1盖部件2a上的把手部2e,向上拉起的同时向后方侧推压时,上盖2如图4所示呈二折的状态下在洗涤物投入口3的后方立起。 Thus, when the upper lid 3 shown in FIG. 2 in a closed state, the user grasps the handle portion recessed on a first lid member 2a 2e, pulling up while pressed rearward, the upper cover 2 into the rear opening 3 was raised at 4% off state in the laundry.

正如上述,由于上盖2搭跨在外箱1上表面1a的水平部1d和倾斜部1c上,并包含有作为其交接处的弯曲部B,但中间轴2d的位置即上盖2二折的位置要处于比弯曲部B靠面前的附近。 As described above, since the upper cap 2 engaging over the horizontal part 1d of the outer box and the inclined portion 1a of the upper surface 1c 1, and includes a curved portion B as its junction, but the position of the intermediate shaft 2d, i.e., 2% off the cover to be in a position near the bent portion B on the front. 为此,即使如图4所示,上盖2折成二折时,也可使厚度减薄,不会覆盖洗涤物投入口3的上方,可在其后方整齐有序地保持着。 For this reason, even as shown, the upper cover 2 is folded two fold, 4 can be reduced thickness, not covering the laundry into the upper opening 3, can be kept neat and orderly manner in the rear.

另外,上盖2的最下位置也就是洗涤物投入口3的前缘位置A的高度过高的话,身材矮小的人很难出入洗涤物,而前缘位置A的高度过低时,上盖2的开关变得非常难。 Further, the lowermost position of the cover 2 is put into the laundry height position of the front edge 3 of the A port is too high, short stature difficult to access the laundry, while the height position of the leading edge of A is too low, the top cover 2 switch becomes very difficult. 通常,洗衣机的总高H由于受到设置场所的限制等,基本上其高度范围是确定的,而前缘位置A可在总高H的约70~90%的范围内。 Typically, the total height H of the washing machine due to the limited installation place or the like, which substantially determines the height range, and the position of the leading edge of A may range from about 70 to 90% of the total height H is.

正如图1,图2所示,在倾斜部1c处的上盖2的左侧设有可向前方自由拉出的洗涤剂容器5,而在右侧设有在前后方向延伸的操作板6。 As shown in Figure 1, Figure 2, the detergent container 5 is provided with a freely drawn out forwardly inclined portion 1c at the left side of the upper cover 2, and the right side is provided with an operation panel 6 extending in the longitudinal direction. 在操作板6上适当分散状设置着用于设定洗涤过程或预约时间等的各种操作键,和根据这些设定或点亮灯或告知洗涤行程的工作进度或者显示预约或运转的剩余时间等的各种显示器。 On the operation panel 6 is provided with a proper dispersion form various operation keys for setting washing process or the time of reservation, and the remaining time points according to these settings, or lighting or notify the progress of the washing or the like of the operation display appointments or the various displays. 因操作板6几乎是朝向斜上方,因此使用者在洗衣机的前方以直立姿势朝斜下方看时,操作板6的表面成为接近垂直于其视线的状态,容易看清显示,并且也易按压操作键。 When the operation plate 6 due almost obliquely upward, so that the user in front of the washing machine in order to see an upright posture obliquely downward, surface of the operating plate 6 becomes nearly perpendicular to the line of sight state, the display is easy to see, and also easy press operation key.

如图5(b)所示,洗涤剂容器5为其上表面全开放的箱状,其内部划分成粉末洗涤剂收纳部5a,液体洗涤剂收纳部5b和柔顺剂收纳部5c。 5, (b) a detergent container 5 to its fully open surface of the box shape, the interior is divided into a powder detergent receiving portion 5a, 5b and the liquid detergent softener accommodating portion accommodating portion 5c. 正如上述,由于该洗涤剂容器5可自由拉出地设置在倾斜部1c上,即使稍向前方拉出洗涤剂容器5,上表面开口也可露出较多,而洗涤剂容器5的下表面被保持的并不少。 As described above, since the detergent container 5 can be pulled out freely disposed on the inclined portion 1C, even slightly in front of the detergent container 5 is pulled out, the openings may be exposed on the surface more, and the lower surface of the detergent container 5 is and keeping a lot. 因此,使用者不用多拉洗涤剂容器5,就可将洗涤剂或柔顺剂倒入洗涤剂容器5中。 Thus, the user does not Dora the detergent container 5, can be poured into a detergent or softener in the detergent container 5.

如图5(a)所示,处于外箱1的上表面1a上的上盖2的后方设有与供水软管相连的供水口7和与洗澡水软管相连的洗澡水软管供水口8。 FIG 5 (a) shown at the rear on the upper surface 1a of the outer box 1 and the upper lid 2 7 bath water supply hose connected to the hose with the bath water inlet 8 is provided with a water supply port connected to water supply hose . 在洗澡水软管供水口8的正下方设有洗澡水泵10,而在供水口7的正下方设有四通供水阀9。 The bath immediately below the supply port 8 is provided with a hose bathwater pump 10, and just below the water supply port 7 is provided with the four-way valve 9. 在此使用四通阀的原因是,不仅可进行通过洗涤剂容器5的通常的供水,而且可进行洗涤剂供给或柔顺剂供给的选择、或进行后述的离心脱水时的平衡调整用的供水,或者在干燥运行时对包含洗涤物排出的水蒸气的湿气水冷用的水的供给。 This reason is the use of the four-way valve, the normal water supply not only through the detergent container 5, and may be selected detergent or softener supplying supplied water balance or adjustment of the spin-drying will be described later with , or supplied dry operation when moisture was cooled comprising water vapor discharged with the washing water.

从供水阀9或洗澡水泵10输出的水向收纳洗涤剂容器5的洗涤剂容器箱11供给,在洗涤剂容器5收纳于该箱11内的情况下,水流向洗涤剂容器5内的粉末洗涤剂收纳部5a、液体洗涤剂收纳部5b或柔顺剂收纳部5c任一处或任意二处。 Is supplied from the water supply valve 9 or the bath water pump 10 to the output of the detergent container tank 5 accommodating the detergent container 11, in a case where the detergent container 5 housed in the case 11, the washing water to the detergent powder in the container 5 agent housing part 5a, 5b or the liquid detergent softener accommodating portion accommodating portion 5c to any one or any of two.

图6为示出滚筒式洗衣机的内部构造的主要部位的正面纵剖视图,图7为除去外箱1的状态下的主要部位的左侧视图。 FIG 6 is a front diagram showing the principal part of an internal structure of the drum type washing machine in a longitudinal sectional view, FIG. 7 is a left side view of the main portion is removed in a state of the outer casing 1. 在以往一般的滚筒式洗衣机中,周面基本为圆筒形状的滚筒可自由旋转地设置在具有在前后方向为水平或稍向前倾斜的轴的周围,但在本滚筒式洗衣机中,滚筒可自由旋转地设置在左右方向为水平的轴的周围。 In general conventional drum-type washing machine, the circumferential surface of a substantially cylindrical drum rotatably disposed around the front-rear direction having a horizontal or slightly forwardly inclined axis, but in this drum type washing machine, the drum can be in the horizontal direction around a horizontal axis is rotatably disposed.

即,在外箱1的内部,周面大致为圆筒形状的并且两端面基本上封闭的外槽20通过从外箱1的左右两侧上方牵引出的二根弹簧21和在前后方向支承外槽20的下部的减振器22可适当自由摇动地保持着。 That is, inside the outer casing 1, the peripheral surface of a substantially cylindrical shape, and both end surfaces substantially closed outer tank 20 through slot 21 and two outer spring support pulled out from the outer casing 1 above the left and right sides in the longitudinal direction 22 the lower portion 20 may be appropriately freely swingably holding the damper. 外槽20的内部设有用于收纳洗涤物的、周面大致为圆筒形状并且两个端面基本上封闭的滚筒23,该滚筒23可以在左右方向延伸的水平轴线C为中心自由旋转。 Inside the outer groove 20 is provided for receiving laundry, the circumferential surface of a substantially cylindrical shape and two end faces substantially closed cylinder 23, the horizontal axis C of the drum 23 may extend in the horizontal direction as the center to rotate freely. 滚筒23上贯穿设置有多个通水孔230。 Through the drum 23 is provided with a plurality of water-passing holes 230. 水平轴线C通过固定在滚筒23左端面上的主轴24由被固定在外槽20左端面上的轴承箱27保持的第1轴承26支承着、而固定在滚筒23的右端面上的辅助轴25由被固定在外槽20右端面上的轴承箱29保持的第2轴承28支承着。 The horizontal axis C is supported by the first bearing 23 is fixed to a left end surface of the cylinder shaft 24 by a bearing housing is fixed to the outer surface 20 of the left holding groove 27 of the secondary shaft 26 fixed to the right end surface of the drum 23 by the 25 the bearing housing being fixed to the outer surface 20 of the right end of the holding groove 29 of the second bearing 28 is supported. 主轴24与辅助轴25和各轴承箱27、29之间通过油封31保持水封,从而即使在外槽20内贮存水的状态下,第1、第2轴承26、28也不会受水。 The main shaft 24 and the auxiliary shaft 25 and the bearings 27 and 29 between the holding tank through the water seal 31 seals, even if the state of storing water in the outer tank 20, the first and second bearing 26 and 28 is not affected by water.

在从外槽20的左侧突出的主轴24的前端装有作为外齿轮型的直流无刷电机的电机30的转子30b,而在上述轴承箱27上装有该电机30的定子30a。 From the left side at the front end of the outer groove 20 of the spindle 24 protrudes with an outer gear as a DC brushless motor type rotor 30 of the motor 30b, and is equipped with a stator 30a of the motor 30 on the bearing housing 27. 包含永久磁铁的转子30b设置成围在含线圈的定子30a的外周侧,由此,电机30在水平轴线C的方向的构造可成薄型。 The rotor comprises permanent magnets 30b disposed around the stator 30a having an outer circumferential side of the coil, whereby the motor 30 in the configuration of the horizontal axis C direction can become thin. 这样的电机30由于是经主轴24直接驱动滚筒23的结构,通过图中未示出的控制回路,向定子30a供给驱动电流时,转子30b旋转,通过主轴24使滚筒23在与转子30b为相同的速度下转动。 Such a motor 30 due to the structure via 24 directly drives the spindle of the drum 23 by drawing the control circuit (not shown), when the driving current is supplied to the stator 30a, the rotor 30b is rotated by the spindle 24 of the drum 23 and the rotor 30b are the same the rotational speed.

在外槽20的底部设有排水口200,排水口200经排水阀36通过图中未示出的排水软管而与外部的排水槽连接。 The outer groove bottom 20 is provided with drain 200, drain 200 is connected to the drain groove 36 to the outside through the drain valve by drawing the drain hose is not shown. 排水阀36通过转矩电动机37的动作而开关。 Drain valve 36 and the switch 37 by the operation of the torque motor. 此外,在此尽管没有详细地说明,但在外槽20的右部外侧形成干燥时供给热风用的热风通路,以向滚筒23内供给。 Further, although not described here in detail, but the right outer portion of the outer tank 20 is supplied via hot air drying with a hot air formed in the drum 23 into the feed.

与以往一般的滚筒式洗衣机中的滚筒的偏置支承结构不同,在本滚筒式洗衣机中,正如上述,滚筒23是在两侧支承的。 Biasing conventional drum support structure of the drum type washing machine is generally different, in this drum type washing machine, as described above, the drum 23 is supported on both sides. 为此,在离心脱水时,即使洗涤物偏置,也很难发生振动。 For this reason, at the time of spin-drying, even laundry bias, it is difficult to vibrate. 可是,为了可靠地抑制振动,可采用2种平衡调整机构。 However, in order to reliably suppress the vibration, it can be two kinds of balance adjusting mechanism. 其一是,处于滚筒23上并且装到与电机30为同一左端面的外周侧上的流体平衡器32。 One is in the drum 23 and the motor 30 is attached to a fluid balancer 32 on the left side of the same outer peripheral surface. 该流体平衡器32与以往的涡旋式洗衣机中利用的平衡杆具有大致相同的作用,通过对封入大致中空环状体的内部的流体的移动适当地加以限制,可抑制滚筒23的振动。 The fluid balancer 32 with a conventional scroll-type washing machine using a balancing rod has substantially the same effect, it is limited by the movement of a fluid enclosed inside a substantially hollow ring body suitably suppress vibration of the drum 23.

另外,以隔开滚筒23的方式在与流体平衡器32相反侧的滚筒23右端面的外周侧放射状设置着内周侧开口的多个袋状的贮水槽33。 Further, the drum 23 in spaced manner with the radially outer peripheral side opposite to the fluid balancer 32 faces the right side of the drum 23 is provided with a plurality of bag-like inner circumferential side opening of the reservoir tank 33. 该贮水槽33与朝向其开口部放出水的喷嘴34或图中未示出的在该喷嘴34上由上述供水阀9供水用的供水通路等一同构成重量可变型的平衡调整部。 The water storage tank 33 toward the opening portion of the nozzle 34 or discharge water balance adjusting unit (not shown) together constituting a variable by weight of water supply and the like via the water supply valve 9 with the nozzle 34 in FIG. 即,滚筒23处于规定的旋转位置时,从喷嘴34放出水,使水进入接近该喷嘴34的贮水槽33的内部,并且在离心力作用下,保持在其内部,这样,通过所保持的水的重量,其自身就成为了滚筒23的偏心负载。 That is, the drum 23 is in a predetermined rotational position, emitted from the nozzle 34 the water, the water entering the interior close to the nozzle the water storage tank 34, 33, and centrifugal force, held in its interior, so that, by the water held in by weight, which itself becomes a load roller 23 is eccentric. 在此,相对洗涤物偏置引起的偏心负载,这样的水的重量适当地添加到隔轴对置处附近的贮水槽33中,可减小滚筒23全体的偏心量。 In this case, the eccentric load due to the relative bias of laundry, the weight of such water is suitably added to the axis of the separator at near the opposite sump 33, the drum 23 may decrease the eccentric amount of the whole. 另外,对于如此的平衡调整方法和具体的结构可利用例如本申请人在日本第2001-161855号发明专利申请公报中所提出的技术方案。 Further, for such a balance adjustment method and specific structure embodiment may utilize the techniques of the present applicant, for example, Japanese Patent Application Publication No. 2001-161855 proposed by the invention.

在本滚筒式洗衣机中,洗涤物投入口3如上述设置成从外箱1的上表面1a的水平部1d跨绕到倾斜部1c,正如后述,通过形成在外槽20周面上的外槽开口20b和形成在滚筒23周面上的滚筒开口23b,洗涤物可进出于滚筒23内。 In the drum type washing machine, the laundry inlet 3 provided above the upper surface of the horizontal portion 1a 1d of the outer casing 1 around an inclined cross section 1C, as described later, is formed by an outer groove of the outer peripheral surface of the groove 20 drum opening 20b formed in the drum 23 and the circumferential surface of the opening 23b, may be out of the laundry in the drum 23. 但是,因滚筒23在外槽20内旋转,其旋转停止时,必须使滚筒开口23b处于与外槽开口20b相一致处。 However, since the outer drum 23 to rotate within the groove 20, which rotates stopped, the drum opening 20b coincides 23b in the outer tank at the opening. 在此,在外槽20的左端面设有滚筒位置固定装置35,通过从该装置35突出的接合凸部与形成在转子30b上的接合凹部的啮合,可确定滚筒23的停止位置。 Here, the left end surface of the outer cylinder is provided with grooves 20 position fixing means 35, by engaging the engagement recess of the engagement projecting portion projecting from the device 35 formed on the rotor 30b may be determined stop position of the drum 23.

下面,参照图8~图11(a),图11(b)对作为本滚筒式洗衣机的特征之一的、出入洗涤物用的门的开关构造进行说明。 Referring to FIG. 8 to FIG. 11 (a), (b) of this drum type washing machine as one of the characteristics of FIG. 11, access door switch structure will be described with laundry.

正如图8所示,在由上盖2封闭的洗涤物投入口3的正下方,滚筒23处于内包在外槽20内的状态。 As shown in Figure 8, immediately below the upper cover 2 is closed laundry inlet 3, the drum 23 is encapsulated within an outer groove 20 state. 外槽开口20b和滚筒开口23b任意一个形成在朝向比正上稍向前方侧,设有开关外槽开口20b的外槽门20a和开关滚筒开口23b的滚筒门23a。 Groove outer opening 20b and the drum opening 23b are formed in any of a slightly toward the front side than on the front, provided with an outer groove opening switch 20b of the outer tub door 20a and drum opening switch 23b of the drum door 23a. 因而,在洗涤物投放于滚筒23内时,必须开启外槽门20a和滚筒门23a这2扇门。 Accordingly, when the laundry in the drum 23 serving must turn the outer tub door 20a and the drum door 23a which two doors. 不用说,门可以是各自分开开启,但这样的话,为了投入洗涤物,必须进行上盖2、外槽20的门、滚筒23的门这种分3阶段的开启操作,非常麻烦。 Needless to say, the door may be opened each separately, but then, in order to put the laundry, must cover 2, the outer groove 20 of the door, this door 23 of the drum opening operation division 3 stages, very troublesome. 为此,在本滚筒式洗衣机中,是将外槽门20a与滚筒门23a通过简单的一次操作就可开启的结构。 For this reason, in the drum type washing machine, a door 20a and the outer groove 23a of the drum door can be opened by a simple configuration in one operation.

如图9(a),图9(b)和图10所示,滚筒门23a由以在左右方向大致平行延伸的前方侧轴41为中心可自由旋转的前方侧门40,和同样以在左右方向大致平行延伸的后方侧轴51为中心可自由旋转的后方侧门50这2扇门构成,关闭时,前方侧门40和后方侧门50的边缘端部重合(参照图8),而开启时,两扇门40、50成为从中向左右分开的门的构造。 FIG 9 (a), FIG. 9 (b) and FIG. 10, the drum door 23a at the front side of the shaft and extending substantially parallel to the center in the horizontal direction 41 freely rotatable front side door 40, and likewise in the left-right direction a rear-side shaft 51 extending substantially parallel to the center rear side door 50 is rotatably door 2 which constitute, when closed, when the front side door and rear side door 40 overlap the edge 50 of the end portion (see FIG. 8), turned on, two gates 40, 50 become separated from the structure to the left of the door. 成为这样的从中向左右分开的门的构造时,在开启前方侧门40之际,在面前侧可塞住外槽20与滚筒23的间隙。 When this becomes a structure separate from the right and left doors, on the occasion of opening the front side door 40, it can be plugged in the front side of the groove 20 and the gap between the outer cylinder 23. 为此,在投入洗涤物之际,可防止洗涤物下落和夹持在外槽20与滚筒23之间的间隙中。 For this purpose, the laundry put in the occasion, a gap is prevented between the laundry and dropping the drum 20 holding the outer groove 23. 可是,在前方侧门40向面前侧开启时,其突出量较大时,会妨碍洗涤物的投入作业。 However, when the front side door 40 to open the front side, the protruding amount thereof is large, it would prevent inserting operation of the laundry. 为此,通过将前方侧门40的门长(进深方向的长度)比后方侧门50的门长短些,可使上述突出量减小。 For this purpose, the front side door 40 by the gate length (length in the depth direction) more than the length of the rear door of the door 50, the protruding amount can be reduced.

前方侧门40由卷绕在前方侧轴41上的弹簧42朝开启方向施力,并且在上述重合部分设有向上指向的爪件43。 A front side door 40 towards the opening 42 by the urging direction is wound on the front side of the spring shaft 41, and a claw member 43 is upwardly directed at the overlapping portion. 该爪件43与具有弹性的支承板部44连接,从滚筒23外侧推压支承板部44时,爪件43向滚筒23内周侧沉入,一旦解除上述推压,该沉入复原。 The pawl member 43 connected to the support plate portion 44 having elasticity, from the outside of the drum 23 presses the support plate portion 44, the pawl member 43 sinks into the peripheral side of the drum 23, the pressing is released once, the sinking recovery. 另外,后方侧门50与前方侧门40同样,由卷绕在后方侧轴51上的弹簧52施加朝向开启方向的力,而在上述重合部分设有与上述爪件43接合的接合孔53。 Further, the rear side door 50 and the front side door 40 Similarly, a force toward the opening direction is applied by the winding shaft 51 on the rear side of the spring 52, and is provided with said engagement hole 53 of the pawl 43 the overlapping portions.

此外,前方侧门40与后方侧门50通过设置在两侧的连接杆55而连接,其上方由盖56覆盖。 Further, the front side door 40 and the rear side door 50 are connected by a connecting rod provided on both sides 55, 56 over which is covered by a cover. 连接杆55通过连接轴55a而与前方侧门40连接并通过连接轴55b而与后方侧门50连接,其功能可以为将前方侧门40与后方侧门50保持在规定的关系下连动开关。 The connecting rod 55 are connected by a connecting shaft 55a and the front side door 40 and rear door 50 is connected by a connecting shaft 55b, the function may be a front side door 40 and the rear side door 50 held at the predetermined relation interlock switch. 具体为,两门40、50从开启状态关闭之际,前方侧门40比后方侧门50先关闭。 Specifically, two 40, 50 off from the on state occasion, the front side door 40 to the rear door 50 to close. 由此,必须在关闭时,后方侧门50的边缘端部以载置于前方侧门40的边缘端部上的状态下与之重合,相反则不能。 Accordingly, it must be closed, the rear edge of the end door 50 is placed in the state where the front end edge 40 of the door coincident with, the opposite is not.

外槽门20a与上述滚筒门23a不同,设置成以在左右方向大致水平延伸的轴61为中心可自由旋转的1扇门体。 An outer groove 20a with the drum door 23a different gate, arranged around the shaft 61 extending substantially horizontally in the center of a door freely rotatable body. 外槽门20a由卷绕在轴61上的弹簧62施加朝向开启方向的力。 A force toward the outer tub door 20a opening direction is applied by the winding shaft 61 on the spring 62. 另外,在外槽门20a和在其面前一侧的外槽20上设有通过相互接合而将外槽门20a保持在关闭状态下的门侧锁定机构63、槽侧锁定机构64。 Further, the outer tub door 20a and the door is provided with grooves 20a and the outer side of the door held in a closed state by engaging the locking mechanism 63 on each of its outer front side 20 of the groove, the groove side of the locking mechanism 64. 即,门侧锁定机构63具有以轴63a为中心在左右方向可自由旋转的操作杆63b,操作杆63b处于锁定位置时,通过锁定机构63、64的接合。 That is, the door-side locking mechanism operating lever 63 has a shaft 63a as the center 63b freely rotatable in the horizontal direction, the operation lever 63b is in the locked position, the engagement by the locking mechanism 63, 64. 将外槽门20a锁定在关闭状态。 The outer groove 20a locked in the closed state of the door. 相反,操作杆63b处于锁定解除位置时,锁定机构63、64的接合被解除,从而外槽门20a处于开启状态。 In contrast, the operation lever 63b is in the unlocked position, engaging the locking mechanism 63 is released, so that the outer door groove 20a in an open state.

门侧锁定机构63与位于其后方的滚筒门开关机构65成一体。 The door-side lock mechanism 6365 is integral with the drum door located behind the switching mechanism. 滚筒门开关机构65包含有指向外槽20内侧并且可进出、后退的2根第1杆件65a、第2杆件65b,前方侧的第1杆件65a在滚筒门23a关闭状态下进出时,处于与前方侧门40的支承板部44接触的位置上。 Drum door switch mechanism 65 includes inwardly directed outer tank 20 and allowing access, two 65a, the second lever member 65b, the first rod the front side of the first lever back 65a of the drum door 23a closed and out of the state, in a position in contact with the front side door 40 of the support plate portion 44. 而后方侧的第2杆件63b同样,在滚筒门23a关闭的状态下进出时,处于与后方侧门50的被推压部54接触的位置上。 While the rear side of the second lever 63b Likewise, in and out of the drum door 23a is closed, in a position in contact with the rear portion 54 of the side door 50 is pressed on.

第1、第2杆件65a,65b各自随着操作杆63b的左右方向的旋转操作而进出和后退。 First and second lever member 65a, 65b with each rotation of the operating lever 63b of the left and right direction and back and out. 具体为,操作杆63b从锁定位置转动到锁定解除位置时,第1杆件65a暂时进出,在操作杆63b的旋转结束位置,第1杆件65a后退到原来的收纳位置。 Specifically, the operation lever 63b is rotated to the unlocked position, the first rod 65a temporarily out from the locked position, the rotational position of the end 63b of the operating lever, the first lever member 65a back to the original storage position. 相反,操作杆63b从锁定解除位置转动到锁定位置时,第2杆件65b暂时突出,在操作杆63b的转动结束位置,第2杆件65b后退到原来的收纳位置。 In contrast, the operation lever 63b is rotated from the unlocked position to the locked position, the second lever member 65b protrudes temporarily, the rotational position of the end 63b of the operating lever, the second lever member 65b back to the original storage position.

下面对洗涤物出入滚筒23内时的上述结构的动作进行说明。 Operation of the structure when following the laundry out of the drum 23 will be described. 首先,如图8所示,由上盖2关闭洗涤物投入口3,外槽门20a关闭外槽开口20b,滚筒门23a处于关闭滚筒开口23b的状态。 First, as shown in FIG 8, the upper lid 2 is closed by the laundry inlet 3, the outer tub door 20a closed outer tank opening 20b, drum door 23a in the closed state of the drum opening 23b. 使用者把手指插入上盖2的把手部2e中,边上拉边向后方推。 The user finger grip portion 2e 2 is inserted into the upper cover, the side edge of the pull-push backward. 这样,正如上述,上盖2在洗涤物投入口3的后方折成二折的状态下立起(参照图4)。 Thus, as above, the laundry inlet cover 3 is folded behind the two raised off state 2 (see FIG. 4). 接着,使用者将操作杆63b从锁定位置转动到锁定解除位置。 Next, the user rotates the operation lever 63b from the locked position to the unlocked position. 由此,解除锁定机构63、64的接合,外槽门20a成为可以轴61为中心自由旋转的状态。 Thereby, disengaging the locking mechanism 63 and 64, the gate groove 20a in a state the outer shaft 61 can rotate freely about.

另外,在上述操作杆63b转动时,滚筒门开关机构65的第1杆件65a暂时进出。 Further, when the operating lever 63b is rotated, the roller mechanism of the first door switch lever 65a 65 temporarily out. 正如上述,第1杆件65a的进出位置由于恰好是前方侧门40的支承板部44处,在图11(b)所示的状态下,将支承板部44向下推压,如图11(a)所示前方侧门40以轴41为中心转动沉入。 As described above, out of a position of the first member 65a is exactly due to the support plate portion 44 of the front side door 40, in the state shown in FIG. 11 (B), the support plate 44 is pushed down portion 11 ( a), the front side door 40 to rotate about shaft 41 to sink. 这样,由于爪件43脱离开接合孔53,从而解除将后方侧门50下拉的力,后方侧门50在弹簧52的弹力作用下转动到开启方向。 Thus, since the pawl member 43 detached from the engagement hole 53, thereby releasing the force pulling down the rear door 50, the rear side door 50 is rotated in the opening direction to the elastic force of the spring 52. 此时,如立刻解除外槽门20a的锁定的话,后方侧门50就提升外槽门20a。 At this time, such as immediately releasing the lock outer groove 20a, then the door, the rear door 50 to enhance the outer tub door 20a. 由于后方侧门50支承着外槽门20a的重量,通过适当地设置弹簧52的弹力,后方侧门50就可止动在提升外槽门20a较少的位置上。 Since the rear side door 50 supports the weight of the outer tub door 20a by appropriately setting the force of the spring 52, the rear side door 50 can be retained in the outer tub door 20a is less lift position. 如此,使用者可容易地识别外槽门20a能成为开启的状态的同时,可容易开启外槽门20a。 Thus, the user can easily recognize the outer tub door 20a can be opened while the state, the door can be readily opened outside the groove 20a.

另外,由于在第1杆件65a返回原来的位置时,解除推压前方侧门40的力,前方侧门40在弹簧42的弹力下转动到开启方向。 Further, since the first member 1 65a returns to the original position, releasing the pressing force of the front side door 40 of the front side door 40 is rotated in the opening direction of the force of the spring 42. 此时,如后方侧门50开启较大的话,前方侧门40就在后方侧门50的下侧成为待机的状态,但由于爪件43进入接合孔53中,所以在该状态下,前方侧门40和后方侧门50就不会接合。 In this case, as the larger rear door opening 50, then the front side door 40 is at the rear side of the door 50 becomes a standby state, but the claw member 43 enters the engaging hole 53, so that in this state, the front side door 40 and rear side door 50 will not engage.

当使用者向后方侧开启外槽门20a时,如图10所示,随之,在弹簧52的弹力作用下,后方侧门50朝后方侧旋转,经连接杆55,迟于前方侧门40朝前方侧的旋转。 When a user opens the outer tub door 20a backward side, as shown in Fig. Accordingly, the elastic force of the spring 52, the rear side door 50 rotates toward the rear side, via the connecting rod 55, later than the front side door 40 forward rotation side. 这样,可与外槽门20a的开启操作相连动地将滚筒门23a成为从中向左右分开,使用者可通过具有开启较大的开口,将洗涤物投入滚筒门23内或相反从滚筒23内取出洗涤物。 In this way, the door opening operation of the outer groove 20a is movably connected to the drum door 23a to be separated from the left and right, a user can have a larger opening open, the laundry into the drum opposite door 23 or 23 is removed from the drum laundry.

例如在使用者将洗涤物投入滚筒23内后,使用者可将处于稍微倒向后方一侧状态下的外槽门20a转动到面前侧,以进行关闭操作。 For example, after the user inputs the laundry into the drum 23, the user may be in the outer tub door slightly backward state in which the rear side to the front side 20a is rotated, to perform the closing operation. 此时,推压外槽门20a,使后方侧门50转动,但在连接杆55的作用下,在后方侧门50转动前,转动前方侧门40,使滚筒开口23b到达关闭位置(参照图10)。 At this time, pushing the door outer groove 20a, so that the rear side door 50 is rotated, but the action of the connecting rod 55, the front side door 50 rotates rearward, the front side door 40 is rotated, the drum opening 23b reaches the closed position (see FIG. 10). 使用者将外槽门20a下推到规定位置后,将操作杆63b从锁定解除位置转动到锁定位置,以禁止外槽门20a开启。 After the user outer tub door 20a down to the predetermined position, the operation lever 63b is rotated to a locked position from the unlocked position, to prohibit the outer tub door 20a open.

在上述操作杆63b转动之际,滚筒门开关机构65的第2杆件65b暂时进出。 In the occasion of the operation lever 63b is rotated, a drum door closing mechanism the second lever member 65b 65 temporarily out. 正如上述,由于第2杆件65b的进出位置恰好在后方侧门50的被推压部54处,从而在图11(a)所示的状态下,被推压部54被向下推压,后方侧门50以轴51为中心沉入方式旋转,推压着前方侧门40。 As described above, since the position of the second lever out exactly 65b in the rear side door 54 is pressed portion 50, so that the state shown in (a) in FIG. 11, the pressed portion 54 is pressed down, the rear side door 50 to the rotation center shaft 51 for the sinking mode, pressing push the front side door 40. 这样,爪件43嵌入接合孔53中,后方侧门50的前缘端相对前方侧门40的支承板部44推压,使两者嵌合。 Thus, the pawl member 43 fitted in the engaging hole 53, the leading edge of the rear end of the front side door 50 of the door relative to the support plate 44 presses the portion 40, so that the two fitting. 这样一来,可与外槽门20a的关闭操作和锁定操作相连动地关闭滚筒门23a。 Thus, with the outer groove 20a of the door closing operation and a lock cylinder operatively connected to the movable closing door 23a.

使用者在投入洗涤物的前后适当时刻,将洗涤剂或柔顺剂等投放于洗涤剂容器5中。 The user inputs the laundry before and after an appropriate time, the detergent or softener in the detergent container 5 and the like in serving. 并且,在投入洗涤物后,在操作板6上,进行规定的操作,以指示洗涤运行。 Then, after washing inputs, on the operation panel 6, a predetermined operation, to indicate a washing operation. 在与这样的指示相对应开始洗涤时,首先,从洗澡水或外部供水栓供给的水通过洗涤剂容器5注入外槽20内。 When washing with an indication corresponding to start, first, the detergent container 5 is injected into the outer tank 20 from the water bath or supplied by an external water tap. 此时,排水阀36关闭,收纳于洗涤剂容器5内的洗涤剂溶出的洗净水贮存在外槽20内。 At this time, the drain valve 36 is closed, accommodated in the detergent in the detergent container 5 eluted flush water retained in the outer groove 20.

这样,贮存在外槽20内的水通过通水孔230等,流入滚筒23内,使洗涤物浸入水中。 Thus, the water reservoir within the outer tub 20 through the water holes 230 and the like, flows into the drum 23, the laundry is immersed in water. 在开始洗涤运行时,向电机30的定子30a供给驱动电流,由此,滚筒23在规定方向上以规定的速度旋转。 When the washing operation starts, the driving current supplied to the stator 30a of the motor 30, whereby the drum 23 rotating at a predetermined speed in a predetermined direction. 由此,洗涤物在滚筒23内振捣洗涤。 Accordingly, laundry 23 is washed in the drum vibration. 洗涤一旦结束,同样实施漂洗。 Upon completion of the washing, rinsing the same embodiment. 并且在洗涤后和漂洗后,实施中间脱水或最终脱水。 And after washing and rinsing, dehydration or the final dehydration intermediate embodiments. 此时,电机30的旋转速度上升到例如1000rpm左右,通过滚筒23在同样的速度下旋转,实现离心脱水。 At this time, the rotational speed of the motor 30 is increased to about 1000 rpm for example, rotated at the same speed through the rollers 23, to achieve a centrifugal dehydrator. 在实施如此的离心脱水之际,可实现流体平衡器32的功能和根据需要的平衡调整部功能,还可防止滚筒23或外槽20进而外箱1具有较大的振动。 In the embodiment of a centrifugal dehydrator such occasion, the functional fluid balancer 32 may be implemented in accordance with balance adjustment section and the required function, but also to prevent the outer groove 20 of the drum 23 or the outer tank 1 and further has a large vibration. 这样,结束洗涤后,向滚筒23内供给热风以干燥洗涤物。 Thus, after washing, the laundry was dried in a hot air is supplied into the drum 23.

另外,上述实施例仅为本发明的一例,很显然在本发明的宗旨范围内,可进行适当的变更或修正。 Further, the above embodiments are merely examples of the present invention, it is clear that within the scope of the gist of the present invention, can be appropriately changed or corrected.

例如,可在外箱的上表面,在隔着上盖的左右两侧的任一侧上设置操作板和洗涤剂容器。 For example, the outer surface of the tank, the detergent container and an operation panel disposed on either side of the right and left sides of the upper lid therebetween.
