Pedal Powered Washing Machine Abstract

Pedal Powered Washing Machine (PPWM) is a low cost washing machine made up of easily and readily available scrap parts in daily life. It is a machine which generates power through human pedaling and with the drive mechanism, converts the pedaling motion into required rotary motion of the drum.

Its innovation lies in its simple design, use of inexpensive parts, very low repairing and maintenance cost, affordability to each member of the society and it does not affect the environment. Our team intends to directly address the problems faced in washing clothes, and thus have developed a new design for easy effort in washing and rinsing clothes.

Pedal Washing Machine is a completely new concept, which in its one laundry cycle does washing and rinsing of clothes similar to that of an automatic washing machine available in the market.

Introduction of Pedal Washing Machine

Washing laundry is one of activities that many households do daily. Basically this is done either by our hands or by electrically powered machines. Washing by hands involves scrubbing, beating, soaking and rinsing the dirty clothes. This is a laborious and time consuming task. Electric Powered washing machines were developed to eliminate the labor and time involved in washing clothes manually.

In rural areas electric powered machines are not viable mainly because there is no electricity or because the machine itself is expensive. Women are mainly the ones burdened by the washing of clothes and can spend an entire day washing clothes. The project intends to solve the problem faced by so many people in their day-to-day life.

In rural areas washing laundry is a laborious and time-consuming task. Electric powered washing machines do not work because of lack of electricity and also due to their high cost. The detergents used in washing clothes are chemically harmful to hands. The scrubbing process also strains muscles.

Pedal powered washing is a machine which does not require electricity for several operations like washing, drying, rinsing etc. This is a human powered machine runs on gear drives mainly with human efforts. It has some special attachment so use both human power as well as electric power. The design is ideal for use in the developing world because it doesn’t require electricity and can be built using metal base, chain, bearing, foot pedal.

  • To fabricate a washing machine which is efficient, affordable and easy to build and maintain.
  • To learn fabrication skills.


  • The PPWM would help women and every other family member to wash cloth in easy, cost effective and efficient way..
  • This machine can be developed in commercial value which not only allow one to wash clothes efficiently but also promotes good health with exercises..

Limitation Of Pedal Washing machine:

  • Not as efficient as electric washing machines found in market.
  • Can hold only a certain amount of load.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Pedal Powered Washing Machine


  • Cost effective
  • Ease of Use
  • Efficient
  • Affordable
  • Easy to build
  • Zero Maintenance


  • It is human operated and requires a little more time.


  • The Pedal powered washing machine can be used to wash the clothes at home and laundries to wash the clothes without the need of the electricity.
  • It is a good solution to wash the clothes in the rural areas where electricity is not available most of the times and will save the time of human beings involved in washing the clothes.


The project “Design and fabrication of Pedal Powered Washing Machine” was designed and fabricated on the basis of literature review done on this topic. The primary objective ‘Design and Fabrication of Pedal Powered Washing Machine’ was met during the making of these reports. The pedal powered washing machine is quite different from the community’s current method of washing clothes; the community may be reluctant to try the new machine.

This pedal power washing machine has the uniqueness of ease of construction, assembly, transport and made from recycled components. This washing machine can be used in rural areas, where electricity is not available. This economical and efficient washing machine can be used to wash clothes without electric supply and can be used for workout.
