Abstract (en)

A washing and drying machine has an object to improve a drying efficiency of a laundry and reduce a drying time, and includes an outer drum (2); an inner drum (5) rotated in this outer drum and having a substantially cylindrical shape to constitute a storage chamber (10) therein; a takeout port (6) which is constituted in one end surface of a cylinder of this inner drum in an axial direction and via which the laundry is to be taken or introduced; a plurality of through holes (7) which are formed around a side surface of the cylinder of the inner drum and in the other end surface of the cylinder in the axial direction and from which water is discharged during the washing and through which circulation air for drying circulates during the drying; and a blowing regulation unit (60) which blows the air for drying into the storage chamber (10) from the side of one end or the other end of the cylinder of the inner drum (5) in the axial direction and which allows the air to flow from the through holes (7) on the other end side or from the one end side and which inhibits outflow of the air for drying from the other through holes.
