The technical field

This invention relates to a cleaning device, such as a washing machine, a dishwasher or in whole, by the appliance, intended for washing. In addition, the invention relates to a method of programming the washing device.

Cleaning devices of this type are usually used for cleaning various products: clothes, bedding, household items and the like, if it's washing machines; plates, pots, Cutlery products, and the like, if it's in the dishwasher. Currently, such cleaning devices are widely spread not only in enterprises, for example in laundries (if washing machines), or in restaurants (if the dishwasher), but also in the homes of most people.

The expression "washing machine" refers to any device intended to perform at least the washing of textile products, made of any fiber, or any color that can be called "cleaning device for textile products", or "washing and drying device for textile products", if in addition to washing it performs at least, drying textiles (in particular, using the hot air sent in the cleaning tank by the unit blower). Textiles can be downloaded in tiralo the front of the car, through the hole made in the front wall of the machine, or from above through the opening in the top wall of the machine.

BACKGROUND of the INVENTION

There is a washing machines of the prior art, in which you can select in advance a program of washing (e.g., washing delicate items, wool products, cotton products at a temperature of 30C, cotton products at 90, and the like). The selection of the specified program is in the automatic selection of the parameters of the cycle (temperature, duration of washing and so on), prescribed in accordance with manufacturer's standards, established on the basis of practical experience. Data standards are a compromise between the resulting washing indicator of purity, operating time and energy consumption. The above washing machines have several disadvantages. In particular, the parameters of washing prescribed in accordance with generally accepted standards may not take into account the requirements of more demanding consumers, dissatisfied indicator of the purity of the washed linen, or can match the level of energy consumption, which for the less demanding consumers is considered to be excessive.

In addition, there are known a washing machine with the switch is Telem, employees for installation before each washing the degree of contamination of linen, which are going to be washed in a washing machine. The specified switch allows the user requested to change within the specified limits some parameters of washing to do the Laundry more or less thorough.

These washing machines also have drawbacks.

In particular, it is difficult to decide what you want to wash linen is very polluted, but what is not very polluted. In particular, things with different degree of contamination can be washed together. Thus, the evaluation by the user of the degree of contamination may be erroneous.

It is clear that if the position of the switch corresponds to a high degree of contamination, will be consumed more electricity while if the switch is in the on position too low degree of contamination, the user may be dissatisfied with the measure of the purity of the washed products.

Description of the INVENTION

The washing device 1, is shown as example in figure 2, represents the washing is Asino. The washing device 1, shown in the sample figure 3 represents the dishwasher.

The washing device 1 has a management tool as washing, allowing you to modify at least one parameter. As explained in more detail below, these parameters are, for example, cycle time, amount of detergent, the use of detergent additives, the temperature on and off the water heater, the amount of consumed water and the like.

The device 1 also has an interface 30 of the user, which in turn contains the tool 2 is designed to select the washing programme. In the washing device 1 has a choice of washing programmes. In the case of washing machines are examples of such programs are: washing woollen clothes, delicate wash, wash cotton products at a temperature of 30, wash cotton products at 90 and the like. In the case of dishwashers use a particular program involves washing: glassware, pots, wash at 30, wash at 50, and the like. The program "washing glassware" is intended for washing delicate items such as crystal products, then, as the washing of pots" is intended for washing items that can withstand the very strong jet. By selecting the washing programme the user automatically sets a number of parameters that govern the process of washing. If the selected predefined program, some of these options are limited to pre-defined limits. For example, the temperature, the maximum value of which is in the washing machine may be limited (usually 30, 60, 90) depending on the type of things to be washed. As shown by example in figure 2 and figure 3, but without limitation of the invention, the tool 2 is designed to select the washing program, is a selector.

In addition, the interface 30 of the user selector 32 quality of washing. The specified selector 32 is functionally associated with the tool 3, which serves for quality control of washing.

The higher you set the quality of washing in the washing device 1, the higher the degree of purity is obtained sink. In the case of washing machines, in order to assess the quality of washing, carry out the measurement, for example, the reflectance of the washed items in accordance with the requirements of the International Standard IEC 60456. Moreover, the higher the quality of washing is associated with higher energy consumption and/or longer duration of washing.

Typically, the cleaning device 1 has a storage device 4. The specified storage device is istwo 4 allows you to memorize the command, submitted using the selector 32. The team served at the end of washing, in which selected the wash program. This command applies to request more or less qualitative sink compared to the quality already finished washing. In addition, the team is uniquely associated with a particular wash program selected in already finished washing. The storage device 4 sends the command to the tool 3 control when the user tool 2 select the washing programme again selects the sink with the particular program with which the team has a clear connection. Guaranteed freedom of choice of different quality washing with changes in the washing programme. With this invention the user can immediately check the results of the cleaning and change settings on the parameters previously specified programs, tailoring them to your specific requirements. In the next time, when you use a specific program of washing, the washing device 1 will read the command submitted by the user. The user can adjust more or less high quality car wash, partly dependent on the selected washing programme. User satisfaction with the cleaning result is subjective, and the result that would satisfy a single user, insufficient for the other user. With this invention, for each type of cleaning, the user can achieve an appropriate compromise between the degree of purity and/or consumption of detergent.

In the absence of the above command, the device 1 will play as sinks, installed during the last wash, made in accordance with the program, which is preparing to launch.

The above command leaves the cleaning relatively unchanged washing programs, different from that which is uniquely associated command.

Mainly the storage device 4 is designed for the simultaneous storage of a large number of teams, each of which can be uniquely associated with an appropriate wash program.

Preferably the storage device 4 is designed for the simultaneous storage of such a large number of teams, the number of washing programmes, which can be installed using the 2 select the washing programme. The interface 30 user mainly contains the tool 31 is designed to transmit signaling information to the user. In a non-limiting example, the options for performing the washing device 1 initially performs a sink in accordance with the previously given program, and the quality of washing installed by the manufacturer in affect, the, to reach a compromise between purity and saving energy and detergent. If necessary and in accordance with the degree of satisfaction of its requirements, the user can change the quality of washing, as described above.

The selector 32 mainly has two buttons, one to improve, and the other for reducing the quality of the wash. In an alternative embodiment, the selector 32 may constitute such a switch, so that the user can query the improvement of the quality of the sink by turning the switch in the first direction (e.g. clockwise), and reduced quality by its rotation in the other direction (e.g. counterclockwise). Team associated solely with the direction of rotation of the switch, and not with the angle of rotation.

Signal means 31 provides for the user the possibility of the cleaning device 1 recommendations for the introduction of detergent additives, if cleaning quality requested by the user by means of the selector 32, exceeds the prescribed rate. The specified set indicator preferably corresponds to the high quality of washing. Mainly, this device is used when further changes in other parameters, cleaning becomes difficult. For example, it is obvious that even for constantly dissatisfied n is Lisovets there are technical or reasonable limits, for which the edit washing would be impossible. For example, sink, which lasts more than one day, would lose its meaning.

Mostly informational signal means 31 has a display or a loudspeaker that reproduces quickly encoded message for transmission of the object information to the user, for example, proposing to use the washing Supplement.

3 quality management washing, respectively, has a capacity for detergent and metering device which regulates the amount of detergent supplied from the tank. The greater the quantity of the detergent, the higher will be the quality of washing. The specified detergent may include washing additive, for example, the bleach in the case of washing machines. Alternatively, the detergent may be a detergent as such. In particular, the Applicant conducted a series of washes using liquid detergent, confirming that under otherwise equal conditions with increasing amounts of the detergent cleaning quality is steadily rising.

3 quality management cleaning has the means to control the duration of washing. Ceteris paribus longer washing or washing with a large number of Laundry rinsing uses will be more of establishments is th.

The tool 3 has a tool to adjust the range between the temperature at which turns on and off thermostat for heating water. The temperature at which thermostat turns off, usually limited to the selected washing programme: for example, for washing at 30C, the temperature at which thermostat is turned off, is about 30, preventing damage to the goods subject to the sink. In this case, reducing the range between the temperature at which thermostat turns on and off, the average wash temperature will be higher and closer to the maximum temperature of the wash, which is known to be essentially installed in accordance with the type of the selected application.

3 accordingly has a means of adjusting the total amount of water consumed during washing. The more water used, the better will be washing. However, the use of more water will require increased energy consumption required to heat it.

The tool 3 has a means to adjust the operating cycle of the device used to move subject to washing products.

The expression "duty cycle" refers to the ratio between the period of time during which operates the moving device, and the total duration of washing.

In the case of washing machines specified condition is the device move has a rotating drum, in which the user loads the scratch sheets.

This invention also relates to a method for programming the cleaning device 1. General and corresponding elements are the same as described above. Mainly, the washing device 1 is an electrical device. The washing device 1, is shown as example in figure 2, is a washing machine. The washing device 1, shown in the sample figure 3 represents the dishwasher.

According to this method the washing device 1 requests or waits for the user to select a program. The method includes a step of washing in accordance with the program selected by the user. The washing device 1 performs at least the following stages:

save at the end of the wash command submitted by the user. This command applies to request more or less high quality washing compared to the quality already finished washing, and is uniquely associated with a particular wash program selected in already finished washing;

command to the tool 3 quality control of washing, when again required sink, corresponding to the same particular program with which the associated command. Mainly 3 quality management washing allows you to adjust at least one parameter of the washing

In the absence of the command, the device 1 reproduces the quality of washing installed in the last wash, made in accordance with the program, which again is preparing to launch.

The team leaves the cleaning relatively unchanged washing programs, different from the program with which it is associated.

The step of storing is executed by using the storage device 4 designed for the simultaneous storage of multiple teams, each of which can be uniquely associated with an appropriate wash program.

Mainly the storage device 4 is designed for simultaneous remember so many commands as there are washing programmes that can be selected by the user.

The method preferably includes a step in which the washing device 1 prompts the user to enter detergent additives. The specified stage is the place, if specified by the user cleaning quality exceeds the set parameter.

3 quality management washing preferably regulates the amount of detergent that is moved from the tank. Means 3 preferably regulates the duration of washing.

Means 3 preferably adjusts the range between the temperature at which the turn is moved on and off thermostat for heating the water, the temperature at which thermostat is turned off, is limited to the selected washing programme.

Means 3 preferably regulates the total amount of water consumed during washing.

Means 3 preferably adjusts the duty cycle of the device used to move subject to the wash items.

The invention has important advantages.

Primarily the invention allows the user to follow the successive approximations in the choice of optimal conditions for washing various washing programmes.

Another important advantage is that to wash the user must specify the quality indicator for the selected program: this step is already performed by the user at the end of the last wash, which was chosen for this program, and after deciding on a satisfactory or unsatisfactory indicator of purity. The user should not attempt to memorize install the latest washing for each of the washing programme, as well as should not try to remember, was or not the last washing satisfactory.
