Upright Washer Transmission

Re-Design of Upright Washing Machine Transmission

Concept was able to eliminate Planetary Gear, Moon Gear, Rack and Pinion Gear, Friction Guide Band (Totalling over 8 Pound weight loss).

Improved Wash cleanliness by having the longest agitation movement (180 degrees) while retarding end of agitation stroke at both ends to be more delicate to clothes.

Improved Life of transmission and gear lubricant by elimination friction elements from design reducing operating temperature by >50 degrees.
