  • Publication number: 20080053163
    Abstract: A multiple laundry treating machine having an auxiliary laundry treating space that is capable of performing a drying operation and a refreshing operation using an auxiliary space serving as a base is disclosed. The multiple laundry treating machine includes a laundry treating machine including a main laundry treating unit for performing various laundry treating operations by the rotation of a drum and an auxiliary laundry treating unit, separated from the main laundry treating unit, for performing a laundry treating operation using circulating air or steam, and a monitor device for remotely controlling and monitoring the operation of the main laundry treating unit and the auxiliary laundry treating unit through a data communication with the laundry treating machine.

  • Publication number: 20060230544
    Abstract: A drum type washing machine and controlling method thereof is provided. In the drum type washing machine, a tub is provided, a drum is installed in the tub to rotate about a horizontal axis, a driving motor rotates the drum, a key input unit receives a washing instruction from a user, a memory stores a reference quantity value and a reference eccentricity value, a microcomputer controls washing and rinsing operations in accordance with a procedure set by the user upon an input of a start command through the key input unit and it also controls a preliminary spin drying operation to be selectively performed based on a comparison result obtained by comparing a measured laundry quantity and a measured eccentricity with the reference quantity value and the reference eccentricity value, and a driving control unit controlling the driving motor in accordance with a control signal of the microcomputer.

  • Publication number: 20060000243
    Abstract: An apparatus and method control dewatering in a drum-type washer so that a dewatering cycle can be selectively modified by a user selection and so that noise and vibration on a dewatering cycle can be reduced. the apparatus includes a key input for selecting a wash course, the selected wash course corresponding to one of a plurality of selectable dewatering courses; memory for storing at least one eccentricity detection reference value per the selectable dewatering course; and a controller for performing the selected wash course based on the stored at least one eccentricity detection reference value. The method includes selecting a wash course, the selected wash course corresponding to one of a plurality of selectable dewatering courses; storing in memory at least one eccentricity detection reference value per the selectable dewatering course; and performing the selected wash course based on the stored at least one eccentricity detection reference value.

  • Publication number: 20050016227
    Abstract: A method of performing a spinning operation of a washing machine is disclosed. First, a load weight of wet clothes contained in a tub is measured, and an optimal acceleration rate is calculated based upon the measured load weight. Finally, a rotational speed of the tub is gradually increased up to a predetermined speed at the calculated optimal acceleration rate such that the unbalanced distribution of the wet clothes within the tub is minimized.
