Title: SUSPENSION ARRANGEMENT FOR CLOTHES WASHING MACHINE
Abstract:
The suspension arrangement for the clothes washing machine is de- fined by a plurality of suspension rods (30), each comprising a slim and flexi¬ ble stem having an upper end (30a) coupled to a structural cabinet (10) and a lower end (30b) coupled to a tank (50) to be suspended inside the structural cabinet (10). The arrangement also provides for a plurality of radial rods (90), having an inner end (91 ) coupled to a median side region of the tank (50), and an outer end (92) coupled to a facing median region of a respective suspension rod (30) so as to transmit to each respective suspension rod (30) at least part of the radial displacement of the tank (50) during machine opera¬ tion, so as to cause a corresponding elastic deformation, by flexion, on the respective suspension rod (30).
