Abstract (en)

The present invention relates to fixed-type connection slots (21) and expanding-type connection slots (24) provided on the front side of the tub (20) of a clothes washing machine for connecting said tub (20) with the balance weight (30). Both types of connections slots (21,24) have cylindrical bodies in the form of a projection extending outwardly. There is provided a hole (28) coincident with the central axis of this cylindrical form and screw-like fixation means (26) are introduced into such hole (28). A set of connection holes (31) and another set of connection holes (34) are provided on the balance weight (30) so as to coincide with the fixed-type connection slots (21) and the expanding-type connection slots (24), respectively.
