の洗濯物の処理時間は、約4時間程度を要している。 Processing time of the laundry, it takes about 4 hours. 中でも乾燥時間が特に長い。 Among them, drying time is especially long. 乾燥時間を左右する要因は、 It affects the drying time factors,
洗濯物に含まれる水分量、洗濯物の種類、乾燥工程の投入熱量、洗濯物と乾燥空気との接触状態、放熱損失等がある。 The amount of water contained in the laundry, the type of laundry, heat input to the drying step, the state of contact between the laundry and the drying air and heat radiation loss and the like. これらの要因に対していろいろな取り組みが考えられるが、本願では洗濯物に含まれる水分量を少なくすることで乾燥時間を短縮するものである。 Are various efforts to these factors considered, but in this application is intended to shorten the drying time by reducing the amount of water contained in the laundry. 【0010】前記洗濯物に含まれる水分量は脱水工程における内槽の回転数で決定される遠心力の大きさに左右される。 [0010] amount of water contained in the laundry depends on the magnitude of the centrifugal force determined by the rotational speed of the inner tub in the dehydration step. 乾燥時間を短縮するためには内槽の回転数を高くすれば良いが、脱水行程の初期段階で内槽に洗濯物が不均等になると乾燥洗濯機の振動が激しくなるため内槽の回転数には限界があった。 To shorten the drying time may be increased rotational speed of the inner tub is the rotational speed of the inner tub for laundry in the inner tub vibration the drying washing machine becomes uneven becomes severe in the initial stage of the dehydrating operation there is a limit to. 従って、洗濯物に含まれる水分量が多く乾燥時間が非常に長いという課題を有していた。 Accordingly, many dry times amount of water contained in the laundry has been a problem that very long. 【0011】また、すすぎ行程は洗濯に使用した洗剤分を洗濯物からすすぎ水に移行させる行程として、内槽にすすぎ水を供給して洗濯物を撹拌する溜すすぎ、或いは内槽を回転させながらすすぎ水を供給するシャワーすすぎがある。 Further, as process for the rinse step shifts a soap used for washing the rinsing water from the laundry, supplies the rinsing water into the inner tank rinsing reservoir for agitating the laundry, or while the inner tub is rotated there is a rinse shower supplies the rinse water. これらの方法はすすぎ水の水温と撹拌、或いは脱水回転数で洗剤分がすすぎ水に移行分離能力が決定され、多量のすすぎ水を必要としたり、すすぎ時間を必要としていた。 Stirring a water temperature of these methods rinse water, or the migration separation capacity in the detergent content rinsing water is determined by dewatering rotation number, or require large amounts of rinsing water, have required rinsing time. 【0012】更に、乾燥機能を有していない洗濯機の場合は、洗濯行程、すすぎ行程、脱水行程を実行して終了する。 Furthermore, in the case of a washing machine having no drying function, the washing operation, a rinsing cycle is finished by executing the dehydration step. 脱水行程を終了した後、洗濯物を室外、或いは室内に干して乾燥させる時に、脱水率が低く洗濯物に多量の水分を含んでいる場合は、洗濯物を取り込むまでの時間内に乾燥しない場合があった。 If after completion of the dehydration step, the laundry outside, or when drying and dried in a room, when the dehydration rate contains a large amount of water to lower laundry, which does not dry in time to take in the laundry was there. 【0013】本発明は上記従来の課題を解決するもので、洗濯物の脱水工程、すすぎ行程、或いは乾燥工程中に温水又はスチームを噴射ノズルより所定時間噴射して洗濯物を短時間に加熱し、効率よく脱水率、あるいはすすぎ率を向上することを目的とする。 [0013] The present invention is intended to solve the above-step dehydration of the laundry, a rinsing cycle, or hot water or steam during the drying process the predetermined time injected from the injection nozzle laundry is heated in a short time aims to improve the efficiency and dewatering rate, or rinsing rate. 【0014】 【課題を解決するための手段】前記従来の課題を課題を解決するために、本発明の洗濯機は、回転自在に支持した洗濯物を収納する内槽と、前記内槽を回転させる駆動手段と、水を加熱し温水又はスチームを生成する水加熱手段と、前記温水又はスチームを内槽内に噴射する噴射ノズルを備え、洗濯物の洗濯工程、脱水工程中、或いはすすぎ行程、乾燥工程中に前記温水又はスチームを噴射ノズルより所定時間噴射して洗濯物を加熱するものである。 [0014] the conventional problems Means for Solving the Problems] To solve the problems, the washing machine of the present invention, the rotation and the inner tub for accommodating rotatably supporting the laundry, the tank driving means for the water heating means for generating heating water hot water or steam, comprising an injection nozzle for injecting the hot water or steam into the inner tank, the washing step of the laundry, in the dehydration step, or rinsing cycle, given from the ejection nozzle the hot water or steam during the drying step injection to is to heat the laundry. これによって、洗濯物、及び洗濯物に含まれる水分の温度を上昇させることができる。 Thus, laundry, and the temperature of the water contained in the laundry can be increased. 温度上昇に伴って、 As the temperature rises,
洗濯物に含まれる水の表面張力が低下して内槽の回転による遠心力で水分は洗濯物から分離し易くなる。 Moisture centrifugal force due to the rotation of the inner tub surface tension of the water contained in the laundry is reduced is easily separated from the laundry. この結果脱水率が向上し洗濯物に含まれる水分量が少なくなり、乾燥時間が短縮される。 Consequently dewatering rate is increased the water content is reduced to be included in the laundry, the drying time is shortened.
