Title: WASHING MACHINE
Abstract:
A washing machine (1) capable of retaining water in a rotatable water-removal bucket (4) only for washing and capable of reliably discharging water out of the water-removal bucket (4). The washing machine (1) comprises: a water-removal bucket (4); a washing machine body (2), having an accommodation space (2A) for accommodating the water-removal bucket (4); and a drainage path (17), connected to the accommodation space (2A) from a lower side (Z2). The water-removal bucket (4) comprises: a circumferential wall (35), having a center axis (J) extending in an up-down direction (Z); and a bottom wall (38), connected to the circumferential wall (35) from the lower side (Z2) and having a drain port (38G) formed thereon, the water-removal bucket (4) being driven to rotate around the center axis (J). The washing machine (1) comprises: a rotation member (61), which is connected to the bottom wall (38) by means of a rotation shaft (62) and capable of rotating up and down; a weight member (63), which is fixed to the rotation member (61); and a water stop member (66), which opens and closes the drain port (38G) by means of moving in the up-down direction (Z). The water stop member (66) is raised from a closed position to an open position in conjunction with the upward rotation of the rotating member (61) rotating with the water-removal bucket (4).
