Question
Dear Harcharan

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washing_machine

Is the Detergent / Bleach or Washing powder feed mechanism also
automated in Automatic washing machine ?.

As a example 2 kg or 1 kg or 500 gm Detergent powder is feed and kept in the Washing machine box. The consumer can select the number of detergent powder Tablespoons i.e. 1 or 2 or 3 etc to be feed for the washing purpose by selecting the Input Number button on the washing machine.

Or

The Washing machine intelligently feeds the amount of detergent powder required for washing depending upon the total number of clothes inside the machine.


Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
I am not a specialist in washing machines.
However you should check with the manufacturer of the machine to see if your model has that feature. I believe large industrial machines may have that option. I have not seen that with any house hold automatic machines in North America.
