Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0728861A1] A laundry washing and/or drying machine is described, which comprises a front loading door (5), a hinge (9) to pivot said door (5) to the machine cabinet (1), a lock/release system (6.8) of the door (5) and a device (7) for manual actuation of the lock/release system (6,8). The main characteristic of the laundry washing and/or drying machine according to the invention consists in that said hinge (9) is fastened to the cabinet (1) so that the rotation axis (S) of the door (5) is inclined in respect to the vertical axis (M) of the machine, whereby said inclination of the rotation axis (S) of the door (5) is suitable to allow an autonomous opening motion of the door (5) after that the latter has been released through said manual actuation device (7). <IMAGE>
