JAMES V. THOMPSON AND HOWARD G. DEITZ, OF SPENCER, WEST VIRGINIA.
Application filed March 25, 1927. Serial No. 178,353.
Our present invention has reference to a clothes washing machine.
The primary object of our invention is to dispose with the ordinary clothes cylinder in a rotary or oscillatory type of clothes washing machines and'to substitute in lieu thereof clothes receptacles in the nature of angularly disposed reticulated baskets whereby each basket not only serves as a clothes retainer but as an agitator for thoroughly stirring up the saponaceous fluid in the tub as the baskets are revolved or oscillated so that the said fluid will not only pass through and act upon the clothes in each basket but will be separately disturbed and agitated by each basket and forcibly directed from one onto and through the adjacent baskets" and whereby the clothes will be cleaned in an easy and expeditious manner.
A still further object is the provision of a washing machine that includes a horizontally supported tub having a shaft extending centrally therethrough, and means for imparting motion to the shaft, said shaft having fixed thereon at spaced intervals spiders, the angle arms of which being notched for the reception of a reticulated clothes containing basket therein, each of said baskets being normally closed by a reticulated cover, each of said baskets not only serving as a clothes receptacle but as a paddle or agitator for thoroughly mixing and stirring the saponaceous fluid in the tub to cause the latter to be forced through the several baskets and to act on the clothes therein to thoroughly clean such clothes in an expeditious manner and With only a small requirement of power.
To the attainment of the above broadly stated objects and many others which will present themselves as the nature of the in vention is better understood, the improve ment further resides in certain other novel features of construction, combination and operative association of parts, one satisfactory embodiment of which is disclosed by the accompanying drawings.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a clothes washing machine in accordance with this invention.
Figure 2 is an end view thereof with the tub in section.
Figure 3 is an elevation of our improvement per se.
Figure 1 is a side elevation of one of the arms of the spider showing one of the haskets and frame in section.
As disclosed by the drawings, we prefer ably make use of a cylindrical tub 1 supported horizontally by feet 2. The tub, of
8, whereby the several wheels 9 may be actuated to turn the wheel 5, and consequently the shaft 1 in opposite directions.
Keyed on the shaft 4, preferably atequidistantly spaced intervals there are plates or castings "that provide spiders 10. The arms 11 which radiate from the hub of each,
spider 10 are preferably arranged right angularly with respect to each other and the said arms having their outer portions widened, as at 12, and notched, as at 13, from one of their edges. These notches provide substantially rectangular pockets and seated in the notches or pockets in the aligning arms of the several spiders there are the reticulated portions 14 of clothes receiving baskets. Each arm 11, on the inner wall provided by the notches 13, is preferably formed with an outstanding car 15 and through these aligning ears a pivot 16 passes. To the pivots there are secured the frame portions 17 of the reticulated covers 18 for the several baskets. The outer elements of each frame 17 in a line with the arms 19 provided by the outer notched porouter edge of each arm 19 there is a spring I catch member 22, the said members passing through the openings 20 and overlying and contacting the portions of the frame outward of the said openings and whereby the covers are eflectively latched in closed position.
By providing baskets on the arms of the spiders in a Washingmachine, and mount- 7 ing the spiders for either rotary or oscillatory movement, each basket serves as an agitator for the saponaceous fluid in the tub 1 so that this fiuid Will be forced through the clothes in each basket and will also be divention relatesand a further detaileddescription Will not be required.
Having described the invention, We claim u a a l 1. A Washing machine including a cylindrical tub having legs'snpporting the same horizontally; a shaft journaled centrally through thetub, spiders on the. shaft, each of said-spiders having a plurality of radially disposed arms each having a notch therein, reticulated clothes receiving baskets seated inthenotches, a reticulated closure 'for each basket hingedly secured to the arms of the spiders and latching means carried by the arms of the spiders for engaging with the closures. v V
2. A Washing machine including a horizontally arranged cylindrical tub, a shaft journaled centrally through the closed ends of the tub equidistantly spaced spiders keyed on the shaft, and each having a plurality of radially disposed farms and each of said arms having a notch therein, rectangular clothes receiving baskets seated in the notches, a reticulated closure for cachbas ket, each of said closures including a frame Whose inner edge is 11in gedl y connected with the respective spiders, and Whose outer end is formed with openings toreceive thc outer portions of the notched spiders therein i and spring catch members on the outer edges of the spiders to be received through said open.- ings in the frames of the closures for latching the closures over the baskets.
