waching machin using arduino

Hi
I am a Palestinian student
My project for this year is an automatic washing machine using unu arduino
What is required of the washing machine is simply to fill the water - automatically - and then turn the engine to the right for three minutes
And then reflects the direction of the left turn for another 3 minutes
And again turn the right turn for 10 minutes and then turn ten minutes to the left
Finally the engine stops and the washing machine discharges the water - automatically -

I wish anyone who can help me to communicate with me either on the messages here or on my email

the importante part in this project is how I can make it .........but the software its easy

Please describe how your washing machine is normally controlled.

Are there inputs that will respond to 5V signals?

If it is important, why not tell us if you are starting with an existing washing machine, or are you building one from metal parts, or are making all the metal parts yourself?

What motors are you going to use? How will the washing machine be powered?

Paul

you are right
I will use an idle washing machine of the type in the picture
I will use a small motor 12 v

Thank yo, that helps. Is the existing motor connected to the machine by a rubber belt of some sort? So you can replace the existing motor with you 12 volt motor?

Does the 12 volt motor have the same power rating (KW) as the existing motor? If not, then you need a different 12 volt motor.

Does the washer have to be filled with clothes for this assignment?
If not, them maybe a motor with less power would do.
