The present invention relates to a washing machine containing means of visual indication is required for washing the quantity of detergent.

Known washing machines are sold with the user manual, in which the manufacturer provides General information about the required amount of detergent depending on the amount and kind of be washing products, the degree of contamination, wash program and water hardness. Thus, the user is overloaded with information, which is not only difficult to adapt to everyday use of the washing machine, but also hard to remember every time it is used. In addition, even if such management information is printed on the control panel of the machine and, therefore, constantly visible during use of the washing machine, the user often does not read such instructions or not to notice.

In the document GB 2128640 described a solution to this problem. The detergent dosing device known washing machines equipped with light indication, providing instructions to the user about the amount of detergent and about the compartment in which they should be entered. This type of visual display shows the amount of detergent that the user must enter the compartment in a drawer, in the form of completely or FAP is lovino filled glasses.

The disadvantage of this type of information is that the number is entered into the machine by the user of detergent depends on the size of the used glasses. Such dimensions can vary greatly depending on the type of detergent (liquid or powder) and the manufacturer. As a consequence, it is impossible to guarantee the effective result of the washing process.

Thus, it is desirable to facilitate the introduction of detergent into the washing machine, providing the user with an accurate visual indication of the location in which you should type the detergent, and the amount of washing detergent.

The purpose of this invention is to provide a washing machine which includes means for informing the user of the necessary number of detergent based on the typical parameters of washing, such as the washing program, the number and type subject to washing products, the degree of their pollution, water hardness, detergent and the like.

Another object of the invention is to create a washing machine, in which the indication of the number entered by the user detergent does not depend on the means of its introduction into the machine.

Another objective of the present invention is to reduce possible oshi is OK performed by the user with the introduction of detergent into the washing machine.

Another object of the present invention is to provide a washing machine in which the required amount of detergent is indicated to the user with high reliability.

The advantages, objectives and features of the invention will be clear from the following description of the invention. Objectives and advantages of the invention can be solved and achieved in the device, the characteristics of which are described in the claims.

On the accompanying drawings shows a variant embodiment of the invention.

Figure 1 shows a washing machine according to the invention, containing tools for visual display;

figure 2 is a view in section of means of visual display, shown in figure 1.

As shown in figures 1 and 2, a washing machine according to the invention contains a known detergent dosing device in the form of a drawer 1, located slidable within a niche 2, made in the housing 3 of the washing machine. Drawer 1 contains one or more of the 4 compartments for detergent, such as washing powder, or additives, for example, a softener or a bleaching agent. On the inner side walls of each compartment are tools 5 visual indication to inform the user about the required number is the number entered in the compartment detergent and about which compartment should be filled.

Means 5 visual indication is included automatically by the control unit, which controls all periods of operation of the washing machine. The control unit receives data about the weight to be washing products selected by the user programs and the temperature of the washing, as subject to washing products, water hardness and in accordance with these parameters provides the user with a visual indication of the most appropriate amount of detergent. This indication informs the user about which of the compartments should be filled with detergent that reduces errors and simplifies the use of the washing machine.

Visual indication issued by the means 5 has the form of fill levels, to be achieved with the introduction of detergent into compartment. Thus, the manufacturer of the washing machine can accurately determine the amount of detergent required for effective washing at a known volume of the compartment.

As shown in figure 2, the means 5 visual display containing light emitters 6, such as one or more light emitting diode, and the optical fibers 7, made for example in the form of transparent channels, built in Cabinet drawer 1. Each light guide 7 contains the socket 8 and section 9, along compartment for receiving and dispersion generated by the emitter 6 of the light.

According to the parameters of the Laundry received by the control unit, one of the light emitters 6 is activated so as to apply light to the light guide 7, indicating the most appropriate amount of detergent and compartment, which must be filled. This indication is carried out visually when a user checks out a drawer 1 from its niche 2. In this position, the light emitters 6 converted to the corresponding optical fibers 7. When the illumination of the light guide, the user receives visual information about the place where you want to enter detergent, and about the level of cover required for effective washing of products. Figure 2 shows the illuminated light guide corresponding to a half-filled volume of the compartment, and shows the appropriate amount of detergent 9 reaching lit light guide 7.

The number of light emitters 6 and fiber optic cable 7 depends on the number of levels of detergent, which should be indicated inside compartments, and also on the number of compartments, which is provided with a drawer.

In order to support both the light emitter 6 and both of the light guide 7 in purity, in drawer 1 and the housing of the washing machine 3 are respectively the first and second scrapers 10, 11. When the drawer 1 is pulled out from the niche 2 or slid into her, scraper 10 associated with deducing the th box 1, wiping the light emitters 6 and the scraper 11 is connected to the machine body 3, wiping the optical fibers 7. Scrapers 10, 11 may be made of rubber.

Thus, the washing machine according to the invention significantly reduces the likelihood that the user enters into the machine the wrong amount of detergent for washing, which significantly reduces the consumption of detergent and the risk of damage subject to washing products.

In a washing machine according to the invention the user is provided with more accurate and reliable information about the required amount of detergent and place of its introduction than in known washing machines.
