: An appliance
for automatically cleaning home laundry. It has an opening on its top or its front offering access to the washer tub. An agitator, located within the tub, moves the articles to be cleaned through the wash water. The machine
is powered by an electric motor connected to the tub and agitator via a transmission, clutches
, and linkages. In front-loading machines, the articles are moved by a rotating tube rather than an agitator.
