|1. (WO2018086579) WASHING MACHINE DAMPING DEVICE, AND WASHING MACHINE|
|Applicants:||QINGDAO HAIER WASHING MACHINE CO., LTD.
|Title:||WASHING MACHINE DAMPING DEVICE, AND WASHING MACHINE|
A washing machine damping device and a washing machine, the damping device comprising an upper suspension rod, a damping spring component (400) and a lower suspension rod (500); the upper end of the upper suspension rod is suspended from the washing machine housing; the lower end of the lower suspension rod (500) is suspended upon the washing machine outer tub; the damping spring component (400) is suspended between the upper suspension rod and the lower suspension rod (500). The upper suspension rod and/or the lower suspension rod (500) flexibly telescope in step with the damping spring component (400). Arrangement of the damping spring component (400) of the present washing machine damping device in the middle or even towards the upper portion of the middle reduces the number of parts at either end, thus reducing also the volume thereof, and not occupying space of the outer tub. The suspension position of the damping device of the washing machine outer tub is thus smaller, hence the height of the outer tub can be greater, thus increasing the volume of the outer tub and the rated volume of the washing machine. Direct contact with the outer tub is avoided; as the outer tub shakes during spinning, no interference with the damping spring component (400) is produced.
