I am researching if this is doable. I am very grateful for some feedback that can help me take another step.
We are making an art installation and would like to have a laundry machine run continuously, washing.
CLARIFICATION 1: run a program/wash cycle over and over, with real water inside.
CLARIFICATION 2: We are postponing buying the machine until we know the best approach.
This guide shows a way to get a alert when the laundry machine stops vibrating. It's great since you do not have to open the machine. Maybe one could use the alert to start the program again?
We would need to bypass the control panel anyway, to make sure nobody mess with it, so maybe there is a chance that one could find some wires to make it start over.
Then we would like it to run with water. I am not sure how to achieve this. Maybe with a little tank that is connected to both water inlet and outlet. I fear that any moderately modern laundry machine will stop and start to beep if it detect any oddness with the water flow.
Sorry about the random thoughts, but as I said, I am really thankful for some feedback.
