  • BACKGROUND
  • A drum washing machine in the related art includes an inner drum and an outer drum. A user can keep the inner drum of the washing machine clean in a washing and maintenance process of the washing machine, but the outer drum is sleeved outside the washing drum (i.e., the inner drum), so that an interlayer, namely a washing machine groove, is disposed between the inner drum and the outer drum. The washing machine groove is a harboring site for dirt, and the user cannot remove the inner drum and the outer drum on his/her own to clean an outer wall of the inner drum and an inner wall of the outer drum. Furthermore, the residual water in the inner drum and outer drum that is left from the operation of the washing machine is not easy to clean and evaporate, leading to the growth of a large amount of bacteria on the drum walls. As time proceeds, more and more areas would be attached with dirt, and the dirt also sticks more and more fast to the drum walls. This would cause secondary pollution to the clothes, seriously threatening the health of consumers. Therefore, the user needs to periodically ask a professional technician for professional washing of the washing machine to clean the washing machine, which is time-consuming and labor-consuming.

The drum washing machine includes a washing machine housing 1, and a washing drum is arranged in the washing machine housing 1 and is configured for rotating to wash clothes. The washing drum includes a front washing drum 21 and a rear washing drum 22. The front washing drum 21 is dynamically and sealedly connected to the rear washing drum 22, and the front washing drum 21 can rotate relative to the rear washing drum 22. The rear washing drum 22 is at rest in a rotating process of the front washing drum 21, and water in the washing drum can be ensured to rotate along with the front washing drum 21 to perform washing of the clothes. The front washing drum 21 is connected to the motor 4 via a belt 3, and the front washing drum 21 is operative rotate along with the motor 4; that is, the belt 3 rotates along with the motor 4. When the motor 4 drives the front washing drum 21 to rotate, the rear washing drum 22 is at rest, and because the rear washing drum 22 is at rest, there is no need to position water injection and water drainage. Therefore, in the present embodiment, the rear washing drum 22 is provided with a water inlet hole 221 and a water outlet hole 222, and the water outlet hole 222 is connected to the drain valve 51 via the drain connecting pipe 5.
