The microcomputer 60 rotates the drum 8 by rotating the drum motor 9. As a result, the laundry is lifted and lowered by the lifting rod 8b, and washing is performed by tapping.

Further, the microcomputer 60 causes the circulation pump motor 211 of the circulation pump 210 to rotate in the forward direction. As a result, the circulating water sucked from the drain port 10c provided at the lowermost portion of the rear side of the crotch portion 10b of the outer tub 10 is opposed to the circulating sprinkling nozzles 140a, 140b provided at the left and right of the outer tub 10. The laundry falling inside the drum 8 is ejected.

Here, the water sprinkling is explained using Figs. 9 to 11.

Fig. 9 is a view showing a range of spraying of circulating water in a drum as seen from above for the drum type washing machine of the comparative example. Fig. 10 is a view showing a range in which the circulating water in the drum seen from above is sprayed with respect to the drum type washing machine of the present embodiment.

In the drum type washing machine of the comparative example of Fig. 9, a circulating sprinkling nozzle is provided at the center of the upper portion of the outer tank cover, and circulating water is sprayed from the center of the upper side of the inlet side of the drum toward the lower back side of the drum. As a result, as shown in Fig. 9, the range of water sprayed is narrow (the hatched portion).

As a result, as shown in FIG. 6, the drum type washing machine 1 of the present embodiment is provided with circulating sprinkling nozzles 140a and 140b on the right and left sides of the outer tank cover 100. In this way, as shown in Fig. 10, water can be ejected toward a larger range (hatched portion). Further, by changing the number of revolutions of the circulation pump motor 211, it is possible to perform the strong and weak injection from the left and right circulating water sprinklers.

The clean water sprayed toward the clothes passes through the clothes by centrifugal force. At this time, the clean water is discharged from the through hole of the drum 8 toward the outer tub 10 together with the water permeating the laundry, and is further discharged toward the outside of the machine from the drain port 10c provided at the lower end of the outer tub 10.

<sprinkling water dehydration step 306>

After the sprinkling cleaning step 305 is completed, the microcomputer 60 turns off the water supply valve 202, and the drum motor 9 rotates the drum 8 at a high speed. As a result, the centrifugally dehydration of the sewage infiltrated into the outer tank 10 is performed through the through hole of the drum 8.

Further, the sewage flowing toward the outer tank 10 is discharged from the drain port 10c toward the outside of the machine.

<sprinkling washing step 307‧ intermediate dehydration 308>

The microcomputer 60 performs a water sprinkling step 307. The control of the microcomputer 60 is the same as the sprinkling cleaning step 305, so the description is omitted.

Thereafter, the microcomputer 60 performs an intermediate dehydration step 308. The control of the microcomputer 60 is the same as the intermediate dehydration step 304, so the description is omitted.

<Water supply step 309>

After the drain valve 204 is closed, the microcomputer 60 stores the washing water in the outer tub 10 by opening the water supply valve 201. The microcomputer 60 closes the water supply valve 201 after the water supply reaches the predetermined water supply amount detected by the water level sensor 62.

<Water storage washing step 310>

Thereafter, the microcomputer 60 rotationally drives the drum motor 9 to execute the water storage washing step 310.

<Draining step 311>

Once the water storage washing step 310 is completed, the microcomputer 60 stops the drum motor 9 and opens the drain valve 204.

<Final dehydration step 312>

After the draining is completed, the microcomputer 60 uses the drum motor 9 to rotate the drum 8 at a higher speed than the intermediate dewatering, and performs high-speed centrifugal dewatering of the laundry.

<Drying step 313>

The microcomputer 60 turns on the solenoid valve 203, and controls the drum motor 9, the fan motor 22, and the fan heater 23 to dry the laundry in the drum 8.

in conclusion

Further, the sprinkling cleaning steps 305, 307 are compared to the water storage washing step 310, and the time of the water supply step 309 at the start of the water storage washing is not required. Further, the sprinkling washing steps 305, 307 are performed in a state where the drain valve 204 is opened, and the water dewatered by centrifugation can be sequentially discharged from the outer tank 10, so that the time of the draining step 311 after the completion of the water washing is not required. Further, the sprinkling washing steps 305, 307 are performed in a state where the drum 8 is rotated at a low speed, and by increasing the rotational speed of the drum 8, it is possible to directly move to the sprinkling washing step 307 and the intermediate dehydrating step 308. As a result, the drum type washing machine 1 of the present embodiment can shorten the washing time.

The drum type washing machine having the clothes drying function is described as the drum type washing machine of the present embodiment. However, the present invention can of course be applied to a drum type washing machine which does not have a drying function. Further, although the drum type washing machine using the tap water from the water supply pipe connection port 16 is described, the remaining bath water which is absorbed by the bath water suction pump may be used.
