Title:
WASHING MACHINE WITH CLOTHES-DRYING FUNCTION
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2004/104288
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Warm air sent from a dryer (3) is fed into a drum (10) through an air hole (821) from the central portion on the right end face wall (10R) side of the drum (10). Water holes (10D) are provided in a peripheral inner wall (10C) of the drum (10). Air holes (101) are arranged in the central portion on a left end face wall (10L) of the drum (10). Air in an outer tub (7) is taken into the dryer (3) from an air discharge opening (71) formed in a rear lower portion of a peripheral surface wall (7C) of the outer tub (7). When the amount of laundry is small, laundry near the inner peripheral surface of the drum (10) can be excellently dried by warm air flowing from inside the drum (10), through the air holes (101) and to the air discharge opening (71). When the amount of laundry is large, laundry in the central portion of the drum (10) can be excellently dried by warm air flowing from inside the drum (10), through the air holes (101) and to the air discharge opening (71).
