What is a washing machine?

A washing machine is an electromechanical home appliance that automates (to some degree) cleaning clothing and laundry. In some countries like the United States, they’re also used alongside clothes dryers to dry clothes once the laundry wash cycle is complete. A specialized laundry detergent is typically used for optimal results.

Washing machines, dyers, and similar are types of home appliances sometimes referred to as “white goods” as they’re used for household tasks.
