    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • This application claims the benefit of Korean Application No. P2004-88268 filed on Nov. 2, 2004, which is hereby incorporated by reference as if fully set forth herein.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • The present invention relates to a door on a washing machine, and more particularly, to a door on a washing machine, in which a seating position of a door glass is guided at the time of placing the door glass on a door frame, for securing the door glass at a right position.
  • 2. Discussion of the Related Art
  • In general, the washing machine removes contaminants from clothes or beddings (hereafter called as ‘cloth’) by using action of detergent and water (hereafter called as ‘washing water’). In the washing machines, there are agitator type, pulsator type, and drum type.
  • The agitator type washing machine performs washing by rotating a washing pole upright at a central portion in left/right directions, the pulsator type washing machine performs washing by using friction between water circulation made by left/right direction rotation of a disk like pulsator on a bottom of an inner tub and the cloth, and the drum type washing machine performs washing by rotating an inner tub with a plurality of lifts projected from an inside surface, having washing water, detergent, and cloth introduced thereto.
  • FIG. 1 illustrates a section of a related art washing machine.
  • Referring to FIG. 1, the related art washing machine is provided with a base pan 1, a cabinet 2 mounted on the base pan 1 to form an outside case of the washing machine, a top cover 10 on the cabinet 2 to form a top portion of the washing machine, having a cloth opening 8 for introduction of the cloth therethrough, and a door 20 rotatably mounted on the top cover 10 for opening/closing the cloth opening 8.
  • The top cover 10 has a supply valve 12 mounted thereon with an external hose 11 connected thereto for receiving water for use in washing or rinsing, and a detergent housing 13 mounted thereon through which the water from the water supply valve 12 passes.
  • In the detergent housing 13, a detergent box 14 is placed, where the water from the water supply valve 12 mixes with the detergent.
  • In the meantime, at a front edge of the top cover 10, there is a control unit 15 for controlling the washing machine.
  • The door 20 has a rear door 22 rotatably connected to the top cover 10, and a front door 24 rotatably connected to the rear door 22, so that the rear door 22 and the front door 24 are placed flat on the upper surface of the washing machine, or projected upward from the washing machine in an inverted ‘V’ shape.
  • In the meantime, in the cabinet 2, there is an outer tub 30 suspended from the cabinet 2 or the top cover 10 for holding washing water for washing or rinsing, and water extracted from the cloth at the time of spinning.
  • In the outer tub 30, there is an inner tub 40 rotatably mounted thereon for holding the cloth, having water holes 38 in a circumferential or bottom surface.
  • Under the outer tub 30, there is a drain unit 42 for draining washing water from the outer tub 30 to an outside of the washing machine.
  • The washing machine may have the pulsator 44 mounted on an inside bottom of the inner tub 40 for circulating the washing water, and a motor 46 mounted under the outer tub 30 for direct rotation of the inner tub 40, or may have the pulsator rotatably mounted on the inside bottom of the inner tub 40 for circulating the washing water, and a motor and a power transmission mechanism, such as a clutch, under the outer tub 30 for transmission of a driving force from the motor to the pulsator or the inner tub 40.
  • The door 20 on the related art washing machine has a problem in that it is difficult to determine inside operation state of the washing machine from an outside of the washing machine. If it is desired to see the inside operation state, it is required to open the door, when the washing water splashes from inside of the washing machine, and, if the washing machine is in operation even after the door is opened, if it is a child, the child can be in danger.
  • There are cases when operation of the washing machine stops temporarily in a case the door on the washing machine is opened, when the washing machine is turned on/off as the door on the washing machine is closed/opened, to result in a power loss.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • Accordingly, the present invention is directed to a door on a washing machine that substantially obviates one or more problems due to limitations and disadvantages of the related art.
  • An object of the present invention is to provide a door on a washing machine, in which a transparent window is mounted on a door on a washing machine, for determination of an inside state of the washing machine without opening the door during operation of the washing machine.
  • In the meantime, if the transparent window is provided to the door on the washing machine, a comparatively great seating recess is required for easy seating of the transparent window. However, the great seating recess is likely to cause difficult in positioning the transparent window at a right position, to cause inconvenience of mounting. Accordingly, an object of the present invention is to solve this problem.
  • Another object of the present invention is to provide a door on a washing machine which enables simple, low cost mounting of a transparent window on a door frame.
  • Additional advantages, objects, and features of the invention will be set forth in part in the description which follows and in part will become apparent to those having ordinary skill in the art upon examination of the following or may be learned from practice of the invention. The objectives and other advantages of the invention may be realized and attained by the structure particularly pointed out in the written description and claims hereof as well as the appended drawings.
  • To achieve these objects and other advantages and in accordance with the purpose of the invention, as embodied and broadly described herein, a door on a washing machine includes a transparent door window, and a door frame mounted on a top cover of the washing machine, the top cover having a cloth opening, and the door frame having an opening, and a guide for guiding positioning of the transparent door window to cover the opening.
  • Preferably, the door frame includes a seating recess in a upper surface for seating the transparent door window, and the guide includes a plurality of ribs at sidewalls of the seating recess.
  • Preferably, the plurality of ribs are formed at least on one of, four, front/rear and left/right sidewalls of the seating recess spaced from each other.
  • Preferably, the plurality of ribs include rear side ribs on the rear side sidewall of the seating recess, and the transparent door window is press fit between the rear side ribs and the front side sidewall. In this instance, front side ribs may also be formed on the front side sidewall to press fit the transparent door window between the front side ribs and the rear side ribs.
