Abstract (en)

[origin: EP2568070A1] A washing machine including an exterior housing, a tub disposed inside the exterior housing, a rotary tub driven in rotation within the tub, a suspension elastically supporting the tub inside the exterior housing and being provided with a damper that is capable of exerting variable damping force and that reduces oscillation of the tub, and a controller that executes a control that keeps the damping force of the damper constant while a predetermined detecting operation is ongoing or a controller that controls the damping force of the damper based on a result of detection of the laundry weight detector such that the damping force of the damper becomes greater as the detected laundry weight becomes smaller.
