Abstract (en)

The invention relates to a top loaded laundry washing machine provided with a lid (20) supplied with a detergent box (30) having two hooks (31) with nose (32) intended to be supported against the outer edge (41) of a drum door section (40) of the drum door in case the drum door is stayed opened in order to forbid, in this case, the closing of the lid (20) and consequently the activation of the starting switch of the washing machine, and to fit freely the nose (32) of the hooks (31) under the inferior edge (11) of the funnel (10) when the drum door has been previously closed.
