  • Publication number: 20220320953
    Abstract: A motor unit includes a shaft and an electrical discharging device. The shaft includes a helical gear. The electrical discharging device includes a contact member, a biasing member, and a case. The biasing member biases the contact member toward an end face of an end part of the shaft in a direction parallel to the axial direction of the shaft. The contact member has conductivity. The contact member is brought into contact with the end face by the biasing of the biasing member. The maximum stroke amount of the contact member in the axial direction is larger than the movement width of the shaft in the axial direction during rotation.

  • Patent number: 5570596
    Abstract: A washing machine includes a dehydrating tub whose interior is divided by rotational angle detecting elements into a plurality of circumferential areas. A period of time required for each area to pass a water pouring location is cumulated by a timer function of a microcomputer in a rinse-with-dehydration operation in which the dehydrating tub is rotated with water being supplied to the tub, A quantity of water poured into or contained in laundry in each area is determined on the basis of a cumulated value so that insufficiency in the quantity of poured water due to rotational unevenness of the dehydrating tub is solved.

  • Patent number: 5511397
    Abstract: A full automatic washing machine includes a non-volatile memory, such as EEPROM, for storing data of contents of the washing operation executed at a plurality of times in the past. A control circuit originates the data during execution of every washing operation. The data stored in the non-volatile memory are read out and displayed when some switches on an operation panel are operated in a specific mode. The displayed data serve to find out the cause for trouble or failure in the washing machine.

  • Patent number: 5454171
    Abstract: A clothes dryer includes a drum for accommodating clothes to be dried, a heater and a fan for supplying hot air into the drum in a drying operation, and a temperature sensor sensing the temperature in the drum. A drying operation includes a drying step in which hot air is supplied into the drum and a cooling step in which the heater is deenergized. An intermittent operation is initiated upon completion of the drying operation. The intermittent operation is completed when the temperature sensed by the temperature sensor has reached a predetermined value set for preventing occurrence of creases in the clothes.

  • Patent number: 5333474
    Abstract: A washing machine includes a rotational tub, a single-phase induction motor driving the rotational tub in a dehydrating operation and having a main and an auxiliary coils, a speed detector for detecting a speed of the motor, thereby generating a detection signal, and an output changeover device for changing between an operation mode in which both of the main and auxiliary coils are excited and the other operation mode in which either the main or auxiliary coil is excited. When the motor speed is increased in the dehydrating operation, a control circuit controls the motor in a feedback manner. More specifically, in low and medium speed ranges, the control circuit executes a control pattern in which both of the main and auxiliary coils are excited and selectively executes another control pattern in which only the auxiliary coil is excited when necessary.

  • Patent number: 5234562
    Abstract: A resonator of dielectric ceramic includes a cylindrical body (40) having a bore (50) extending axially through the body, wherein the outside surface of the body (40) and the inside surface of the bore (50) covered with a deposited electrode (80), thereby enhancing the Q characteristics. This principal object of the invention is achieved by roughening at least a part of the outside surface of the body and then chemically etching the roughened body. The dually roughened body (40) is supported by supporting pins((110) fixed to a rotor (100) submerged in a plating bath (26), the rotor being vertical or inclined to a horizontal plane so that the body is provided with a deposited electrode (80). The surface of the rotor is provided with hills and valleys, the supporting pins being fixed on the hills. The rotor may additionally include apertures between the pins to allow the plating agent to pass through.

  • Patent number: 4934563
    Abstract: A cleanser feeding mechanism has a cleanser housing portion, a cleanser feeding member for feeding a cleanser housed in the cleanser housing portion, and a synchronous motor for applying a drive force to the cleanser feeding member, and feeds an amount of cleanser corresponding to the number of revolutions of the synchronous motor. A cleanser feeding amount-setting unit sets an amount of cleanser to be fed from the cleanser feeding mechanism. A driving unit applies an AC source voltage of an AC power source to the synchronous motor. A counter counts the number of cycles of the AC source voltage from a timing at which the AC source voltage is applied to the synchronous motor. A reference cycle number-setting unit sets a total cycle number of the AC source voltage which corresponds to a cleanser amount set by the cleanser feeding amount-setting unit.

  • Patent number: 4862710
    Abstract: A motor load detector detects an electrical value representing a rise characteristic of a motor, which varies in accordance with a load acting on the motor serving as a power source for a series of operations including a wash cycle and a spin-drying cycle executed by an electric washing machine for washing and spin-drying. A determining section receives a value detected by the motor load detector during the spin-drying cycle, and determines a weight of washings contained in the electric washing machine in accordance with a time which has elapsed until the detected value reaches a second reference value from a first reference value. The determined washings weight is used in a cycle subsequent to the spin-drying cycle.
