Abstract

See full text

The invention relates to a hinge for a domestic appliance for pivotably fastening a lid to a body of the domestic appliance, comprising a first hinge element and a second hinge element, which are pivotably connected to each other and which can be pivoted in relation to each other between an open position and a closed position. The hinge is characterized in that a control lever is rotatably supported on the first hinge element and a control gate is formed on the second hinge element, in which control gate a control pin formed on the control lever is guided, wherein the control gate is shaped in such a way that, during a closing motion of the hinge, an intermediate position is assumed and held until the closing motion is continued to the closed position, whereas the hinge is pivoted to the open position during an opening motion from the closed position. The invention further relates to a domestic appliance, in particular a top-loading washing machine, comprising a body, to which a lid is pivotably fastened by means of at least one such hinge.
