Way back in the day, we use to clean our clothes by pounding them on rocks or rubbing them with abrasive sands and washing the dirt away in local streams. This was time consuming and very inefficient. The earliest washing machine we know about was the scrub board invented in 1797. James King patented the first washing machine to use a drum in 1851, the drum made King's washing machine look like a modern washing machine, however it was still hand powered and even if it were electric no one had houses powered by electricity yet.
In 1908 Thor introduced the first electric-powered washing machine. The Thor washing machine was invented by Alva Fisher. The thor washing machine was a drum type washing machine with a galvanized tub and an wash electric motor. Maytag introduced a wooden-tub washing machine in 1907. Maytag soon devoted himself full-time to the washing machine business.
The Whirlpool Corporation started in 1911 as the Upton Machine Co to produce electric motor-driven wringer washers. In 1951, production of Europe's first automatic washing machines started. The twin tub with hand-turned ringer was a very popular washing machine in Europe through the 60s and 70s. In 1978, the first microchip-controlled automatic washing machines were produced and front loading washing machine became the norm. Not much has changed over the years but Dyson did try and reinvent the wheel back in the 90s with there contra rotating drum. A great idea but to many breakdowns ended this good invention. This front loading washing machine is now a common appliance to be seen in every home along side the dishwasher.
