When germs grow, the laundry does not dry well and smells bad sometimes. This is why it is recommended to keep the door open to remove moisture inside the washing machine. However, the opened door of a drum washing machine will cause inconvenience to the user by blocking the resident's movement or spoiling the beauty of the interior. We solved this issue by designing a new kind of a door.‘hide’ is designed for the users to open the door and push it in the washing machine along two rails. Since it is also innovative in appearance, it looks good in any place, and its door does not block the user’s movements.
