Abstract

The effectiveness of a washing machine to cleanly wash clothes is determined by many factors, most of them relating to the size of the wash load or the amount of clothes washed at one time. Some attempts have been made in the past to allow the load size lo be determined by the user by incorporating scales in the lids of washing machines, but the acceptance of these can best be judged by theirdisappearance. If this determina- tion of wash load could be accomplished automatically a more effective use of the washing machine could be the result.
