A washing machine (laundry machine, clothes washer, or washer) is a home appliance used to wash laundry.The term is mostly applied to machines that use water as opposed to dry cleaning (which uses alternative cleaning fluids and is performed by specialist businesses) or ultrasonic cleaners.
An example of this is the function block diagram, one of five programming languages defined in part 3 of the IEC 61131 (see IEC 61131-3) standard that is highly formalized (see formal system), with strict rules for how diagrams are to be built. Directed lines are used to connect input variables to block inputs, and block outputs to output .
Washing machines have ways to control how the machine operates. Some of the possible controls are: temperature of the water; time of the wash cycle (before the soapy, dirty water is rinsed out) number of wash cycles before completing; Types of washing machines. Washing machines may be fully automatic or partly automatic.
The washing machine – sometimes combined with dryer - is the home appliance with perhaps the longest development history, with commercial models introduced as far back as the mid 1850’s! Today they are required to clean more effectively while consuming less energy, water and detergent, and operate at the lowest possible noise levels while .
A control system manages, commands, directs, or regulates the behavior of other devices or systems using control loops.It can range from a single home heating controller using a thermostat controlling a domestic boiler to large industrial control systems which are used for controlling processes or machines.
The anatomy of a washing machine with a cutaway illustration of its parts. There are a few variations in clothes washers—some load from the top and others load from the front—but all washing machines are basically big tubs that fill up with water, agitate to scrub clothes, and spin to wring out the water.
The "real world" input and output conditions of the system are shown as arrows entering, and leaving, the systems diagram. A product which has a fairly complicated control system is an automated washing machine. A simplified systems diagram of a washing machine is shown below.
