  • drain standpipe.
The device of the washing machine

The principle of

Virtually all devices operate on this principle:

  1. After opening the intake valve is filled with the required amount of water into the drum.Once the water is filled to the level determined by the regulator, the valve closing occurs.
  2. water starts to heat.When the temperature sensor without heating element will trip the timer.
  3. At the same time involved in the work of the electric motor, so that the drum begins to rotate in both directions, with its twists and turns occur at different periods of time.
  4. pump starts to pump out the contaminated water, and then in pure water drum typed.
  5. After inclusion of a new engine starts underwear rinsed at low revs.Next
  6. engine is switched off and the water is pumped out again, and then turn the engine gaining momentum and spin occurs linen.
