A washing machine is made up of 3 parts:
First is a heavy motor that spins laundry.
The second part is a balancing system to keep it in place, which is composed of a metal frame that holds the motor and concrete weight to balance the washing machine’s movements…
As well as three pulleys that counter balance each other so that the machine does not shake.
Towards the bottom of the washing machine, there is a damping system that are attached to the washing machine frame via springs. This system squeezes two pads against the black metal frame to absorb some of the force from the vibrations.
And the third and main part, which does all the washing are two steel tubs composed of …
An outer tub, which seals in all the waterand is bolted to the body of the washer and …
An inner tub, which holds the clothesand is perforated at the sides so that water can leave.
This inner tub is attached to the gearbox, which is attached to the motor. In the middle of the inner tub is the agitator that keeps the clothes moving, to make it clean.
It is mainly this movement that makes your clothes clean.
Simple yet efficient. That’s how your mechanical lavandera works.
