The present invention relates to a washing machine/drying machine, in which the inner part of the drum is illuminated.

In the washing machine and dryer machines, internal part of the drum that hosts linen, covered with the help of lighting elements arranged on the bellows tank, doors or the intake hose for the tank. In versions in which the lighting elements are located on mobile elements, the inner part of the drum cannot be covered effectively because of the location, and the lighting elements may be damaged. Lighting becomes expensive and inefficient, and for efficient lighting consumes more energy.

In German patent document No. DE 19649039 in the washing machine light received from a light source located near the hinges of the boot door, goes inside from the window "bulls-eye" through fiber optic light wave conductors located on the boot door, and, thus, the inner part of the tank is covered.

In international patent document No. WO 2005093149 described lighting ring, which is located on the edge of the boot the door to illuminate the surface of the door, which is located on the front side of the case.

In German patent document No. DE 4026547 lighting housing is built into the pipe for water supply. Light emitted from light up the part of the body, illuminate the inner space of the drum passing through the holes in the drum.

In German patent document No. DE 3843386 in the washing machine fiber wire transmits the light received from the light source toward the inner part of the drum, guiding through the corrugated seal tank.

The aim of the present invention is to implement a washing machine/drying machine, in which the inner part of the drum effectively illuminated by consuming a small amount of energy.

Washing machine/drying machine, implemented to achieve the objective of the present invention described in the claims.

In the washing machine/drying machine uses fiber wire, which receives light from a light source located on her body, and passes it to the side of the transparent part, called the " window "bulls-eye"located in the door, which closes the filling opening, such as door glass, and which preferably surrounds the transparent part of the circumference. The transparent part has a concave shape, which goes towards the inner part of the drum, and fiber wire transmits the light received from the light source through the environment around the circumference of the transparent part. In the washing machine/drying machine of the present invention fiber wire located the Yong inside the window frame, as should be efficient lighting inner part of the drum and may not be visible from the outside.

In the embodiment of the present invention the transparent part contains a point of the optical waveguide, which have the effect of the optical waveguide.

In the embodiment of the present invention point of the optical waveguide is concentrated in the middle of the concave portion of a transparent part and provide light to dissipate the drum for efficient lighting.

In the embodiment of the present invention point of the optical waveguide is formed by creating a surface using laser devices inside the transparent part. In this embodiment, different drawings or inscriptions can be performed on the transparent part to ensure aesthetic appearance.

In the embodiment of the present invention point of the optical waveguide is formed on the surface of the transparent part through the use of dot-matrix. Dot matrix is made by printing white dots using, for example, ink-jet printing machines on the surface of the transparent part.

In the embodiment of the present invention point of the optical waveguide is formed from particles having the property of luminescence when the light affects neither the, which are added to the material, such as glass, a transparent part at the time of manufacture. Particles having the property of fluorescence, formed from, for example, materials based on phosphorus or silicon.
