Specified locking device especially adapted for use in a washing machine for Laundry, washing/drying machine or clothes dryer for fixing oscillating node on the machine body.

Design some appliances includes an oscillating hub inside: washing machines for Laundry, washing/drying machines or dryers for clothes, oscillating node consists of a node of the tank, usually containing tank used for water content and/or liquid for washing, and the drum used to accommodate the lingerie that you want to process. The tank site is composed of two or three elements, depending on whether the tank is made of steel or plastic, which can not be dismantled because they are welded or plastically deformed together in a steel tank or glued together in a plastic tank. The drum is installed in the tank and can rotate around its axis by an electric motor.

Oscillating node connected to the housing of the household appliance by means of the suspension system. In the washing machine for Bel is I, washing/drying machine or clothes dryer such a system typically includes a set of springs and shock absorbers that hold the dangling node of the tank and dampen vibration generated during operation of the appliance.

Transportation appliance from the production site to the user can cause the voltage swing of the node under the action of inertia forces, which are transmitted from the housing to the oscillating node through the suspension system when moving the appliance. Such stresses may cause the free movement of oscillating node in the body, leading to possible damage to the appliance when during transport oscillating node is not fixed and varies inside. Therefore, it is necessary to keep the site tank rigidly fixed in the housing until such time as the household appliance will not be delivered to its final destination.

To this end normally uses a mounting system oscillating between the node and the rear panel of the household appliance. Such a system contains a set of fastening devices, usually a set of three mounting devices. Each fastening device comprises a spacer device and a screw, which is inserted into the spacer device and then screwed in the rear calebl is dealing node washing machine for clothes, washing/drying machine or clothes dryer. In plastic tanks screw is self-tapping screw, while in steel tanks on the rear flange of the tank internal thread. While the mounting device is attached to an oscillating node by tightening the screw at the rear oscillating node on the opposite side it is attached to the housing of the household appliance as a result of interaction between the expansion device and the rear panel of the household appliance, due to the closing force applied to the screw.
