 As shown in Fig. 1, the transparent window 3 is provided on the table 1 and opposed to the water spout. The transparent window 3 can be placed on the table 1 by means of a screw connection, a bolt connection or the like. A mixture of water and washing material is sprayed from the spout and sprayed onto the transparent window 3 to produce a foam. The user can more intuitively judge the effect of the washing substance by judging the amount of the foam.

 In the preferred embodiment of the present invention, the illumination device 4 is further disposed on the inner side of the transparent window 3, and is suitable for illuminating the transparent window 3. The foam generated on the transparent window 3 can be made more obvious, and the user can observe the laundry more intuitively. The liquid is foamed and has good practicability.

 Of course, it can be understood that when the use environment of the washing machine is dark or the user washes the laundry at night, the lighting device 4 works to illuminate, so that the user can more easily observe the condition of the inner tub of the washing machine. For example, when the user finds that the water level is not properly selected or the amount of laundry liquid is inappropriate, the user can adjust the water level in time to replenish the laundry liquid. In addition, when the user turns on the lighting device 4 after the night laundry is finished, the laundry can be taken out more conveniently.

 The washing machine according to the embodiment of the present invention is provided with the transparent window 3, so that the user can intuitively judge the effect of the washing substance by judging the amount of the foam, and the lighting device 4 disposed on the inner side of the transparent window 3 can be conveniently viewed by the user. At the same time, the lighting device 4 can greatly increase the convenience of the washing machine in a case where the use environment is dark or used at night, and the utility is good.

 In one embodiment of the invention, as shown in Fig. 2, the surface of the transparent window 3 opposite the water spout is constructed with a foaming structure 5, that is, a mixture of water and/or washing material. A foaming structure 5 is formed on the face of the transparent window 3 and a mixture of water and/or washing material is sprayed onto the foaming structure 5. The foaming structure 5 can make the mixture produce more bubbles, enhance the foaming effect of the mixture, and the richness of the bubbles can enhance the washing effect, and the user can more intuitively observe the effect of the washing material.

 According to an embodiment of the present invention, the foaming structure 5 is a convex-concave structure formed on the transparent window 3. For example, the convex-concave structure may be formed with a plurality of protrusions distributed on the surface of the transparent window 3 opposite to the water spout, and preferably, the plurality of protrusions are evenly distributed on the transparent window 3.

Bubble. According to an embodiment of the invention, the illumination device 4 can be an illumination lamp, in particular the illumination device 4 can be an LED illumination lamp. The lighting device 4 is further disposed above the water spout. Thus, when the head body 2 is sprayed with water, the lighting device 4 can make the foaming effect on the transparent window 3 more conspicuous, and the user can observe the foaming effect more intuitively. When the nozzle body 2 does not spray water, the illumination device 4 can illuminate the inner cylinder, so that the user can more easily observe the condition of the inner cylinder, and the use convenience is good.

 In one embodiment of the invention, the illumination device 4 is disposed inside the table 1. That is to say, the illuminating device 4 is disposed inside the table 1 or on the inner side of the transparent window 3, so that the transparent window 3 can be illuminated, in particular, near the blistering structure 5 on the transparent window 3.

 According to an embodiment of the invention, the washing machine further comprises a transparent protection device, wherein the illumination device 4 is disposed within the protection device. It can be understood that the transparent protection device can prevent water and other liquids from entering the illumination device 4, thereby preventing water and other liquids from damaging the illumination device 4, prolonging the service life of the illumination device 4, reducing the use cost, and being practical.

 Of course, the present invention includes the above-mentioned illuminating device 4 disposed in the head body 2 or inside the table 1 but is not limited thereto, and the illuminating device 4 may have other mounting arrangements. For example, the illuminating device 4 may also be provided. On the cylinder, or on the body of the washing machine, it is within the scope of the present invention to provide a mounting and installation method that satisfies the function of illumination and the function of making the foaming effect more obvious and more intuitive.

 In addition, the illuminating device 4 may also be plural, that is, may include a plurality of illuminating lights, for example, the illuminating lamp is

LED light, one of which is arranged above the water spray port; the other light is arranged inside the workbench 1 or on the inner side of the transparent window 3 so that the transparent window 3 can be illuminated, and other illumination lights can be Situation settings.

 In the description of the present specification, the description of the terms "one embodiment", "some embodiments", "illustrative embodiment", "example", "specific example", or "some examples", etc. Particular features, structures, materials or features described in the examples or examples are included in at least one embodiment or example of the invention. In the present specification, the schematic representation of the above terms does not necessarily mean the same embodiment or example. Furthermore, the particular features, structures, materials, or characteristics described may be combined in a suitable manner in any one or more embodiments or examples.
