    Abstract :

    This paper presents a design of automated washing machine which is controlled using programmable logic controller. Programmable logic controller (PLC) was used to control a mechatronics system using specific functions. Basic PLC functioning like timing, sequencing, controlling and relaying were implemented. The hardware contains one agitator and shell tub. A split phase induction motor is used to run the agitator in either direction required as per the sequence programmed. Solenoid valves are used for water inlet and drain out. Operation of these devices (motor and solenoid valves) is completely automated using PLC.
