WASHING MACHINE: The American Sign Language (ASL) sign for "washing machine / laundry"
The sign for "washing machine" shows the agitating action of a washing machine. It can mean "do laundry." I've also seen people sign "DISH WASHING-MACHINE" to mean "dishwasher."
To produce the sign for "washing machine," use "claw" hands. Twist them opposite directions twice as if showing the agitating movement of a washing machine.
WASHING-MACHINE (wash-in-machine) laundry
Sample sentence: Do you like doing laundry? / Do you like washing clothes?
(CLOTHES, YOU LIKE WASH-in-machine?)
