Title: FRONT-LOADING WASHING MACHINE
Abstract:
A front-loading washing machine, comprising: a cylindrical drum (2) with a bottom, which is configured to be able to rotate about an axis (S1) extending along a horizontal direction or an inclined direction; and eccentricity detector units (35, 36), which detect an amount of eccentricity (M) and an eccentric position in the drum (2). During dehydration, when the amount of eccentricity (M) is greater than a threshold (β) for large laundry, it is determined that this is caused by large laundry existing in the drum (2) and control for reducing the amount of eccentricity (M) is performed; and after the control for reducing the amount of eccentricity (M) is performed for one or more times, if the amount of eccentricity (M) is still not lower than the threshold (β) for large laundry, the drum (2) is enabled to rotate at a rotational speed lower than the rotational speed of specified constant revolutions per minute for large laundry during dehydration. The washing machine (1) can effectively prevent delay of washing time by making the dehydration be completed smoothly.
