Abstract (en)

Laundry washing machine (1) comprising an outer boxlike casing (2) provided with a laundry loading/unloading opening (7a) provided on the top wall (7) of the boxlike casing (2) and allowing the access to a hollow washing tub (3) arranged inside the casing (2), and a detergent dispenser (10) which is located at the laundry loading/unloading opening (7a) and is structured to selectively drop a mixture of detergent and water into the washing tub (3); the detergent dispenser (10) comprises a substantially basin-shaped container (14) which is provided with at least one detergent compartment (15) shaped/dimensioned to be manually fillable with a given amount of detergent, and a corresponding siphon assembly (16) which communicates with the detergent compartment (15) and is shaped/structured for draining out of the basin-shaped container (14) a liquid-type detergent stored within the detergent compartment (15) when a given amount of fresh water is channeled into the detergent compartment (15). The basin-shaped container (14) is provided with a pass-through opening (15a) shaped/dimensioned so to allow the free outflow, out of the basin-shaped container (14), of a powder-type detergent stored within the detergent compartment (15) when a given amount of fresh water is channeled into the detergent compartment (15); the detergent dispenser (10) comprises a hand-operated, movable closing member (17) which is attached to the basin-shaped container (14) and is movable between a closing position in which the movable closing member (17) seals up in watertight manner said pass-through opening (15a), and an opening position in which the movable closing member (17) does not close the pass-through opening (15a) thus allowing the free outflow of the detergent stored within the detergent compartment (15) through the pass-through opening (15a).
