1. The ornamental design for a door of a clothes washing machine, as shown and described.

Description:

FIG. 1 is a front perspective view of a first embodiment of a door for a clothes washing machine;

FIG. 2 is a rear perspective view of the door from FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a cross-sectional side view of the door from FIG. 1;

FIG. 4 is a front perspective view of a second embodiment of a door for a clothes washing machine;

FIG. 5 is a rear perspective view of the door from FIG. 4;

FIG. 6 is a cross-sectional side view of the door from FIG. 4;

The broken lines in the figures illustrate the boundaries of the claim, and form no part of the claimed design. Specifically, the broken lines show a door frame of the door, while the solid lines show a window of the door. Further, as shown in FIGS. 1-3, the first embodiment of the door has a window with a transparent appearance, such as glass for example, as represented by the shading. As shown in FIGS. 4-6, the second embodiment of the door has a window that is not limited to being transparent, and is shaded with line shading to show the character and/or contour of the surfaces of the window represented. As shown in FIGS. 7-9, the third embodiment of the door has a window that is not limited to being transparent, and is shaded with stippled shading to show the character and/or contour of the surfaces of the window represented.
