[0061] 当漂洗运转开始后,运转控制部6的CPU61判断是否选择了蒸汽漂洗(步骤Si)。 [0061] When the rinsing operation is started, the operation control unit 6 CPU61 determines whether the selected steam rinse (step Si). 使用者可以通过对操作面板15进行操作来选择蒸汽漂洗。 The user can operate the operation panel 15 to select a steam rinse. 在没有选择蒸汽漂洗的情况下(步骤Sl :否),运转控制部6的CPTOl转移至步骤S6的处理,进行如后所述的清水漂洗过程。 In the case of steam rinse not selected (step Sl: NO), the operation control section 6 CPTOl transferred to the processing of step S6, a rinse process as described later.

[0062] 在选择了蒸汽漂洗的情况下(步骤Sl :是),运转控制部6的CPTOl首先进行短时间的脱水过程(步骤S2)。 [0062] In the case of steam rinsing selected (step Sl: yes), CPTOl operation control unit 6 first short dehydration process (step S2). 通过与所述脱水运转相同的控制动作来进行该脱水过程,以便进行脱水来除去包含在洗涤物A中的洗涤用水。 The dewatering process is performed by the same control operation and the dehydrating operation, for dehydration to remove water contained in the laundry is washed in A.

[0063] 当脱水过程结束后,运转控制部6的CPU61分别向蒸汽供给装置5的定量泵52和蒸汽用加热器阳发出动作指令、向供水阀18发出切换到打开第二供水出口的指令,从而向滚筒3的内部提供水蒸气(步骤S3)。 [0063] When the end of the dehydration process, the CPU 61 of the operation control section 6, respectively, to the steam supply means 52 and the metering pump 5 gives an operation instruction steam heater male, issues an instruction to switch to open the second water supply valve 18 to the outlet, thereby providing vapor (step S3) to the inside of the drum 3. 此外,向滚筒电动机4发出驱动指令,使滚筒3低速转动(步骤S4)。 Further, it outputs a drive signal to the drum motor 4, the drum 3 at a low speed (step S4). 运转控制部6的CPU61使上述动作持续进行,直到经过了预定的规定时间为止(步骤S5 :否)。 CPU61 operation control unit 6 so that the operation is continued until a predetermined time after the predetermined (step S5: NO).

[0064] 如上所述,在对蒸汽用加热器55进行控制的过程中,运转控制部6的CPTOl基于温度检测器56的检测温度,对蒸汽用加热器55的通电进行开关控制。 [0064] As described above, in the process of controlling the steam heater 55, CPTOl operation control section 6 based on the detected temperature of the temperature detector 56, switching control of the steam heater 55 is energized. 通过这种控制,蒸汽产生器53始终在适当的条件下产生水蒸气。 Through this control, the steam generator 53 generates steam always under appropriate conditions. 此外,为了防止蒸汽产生器53过热,运转控制部6的CPU61基于异常温度检测器57的检测温度,强制断开对蒸汽用加热器55的通电。 In order to prevent overheating of the steam generator 53, the CPU 61 of the operation control section 6 based on the detected temperature of the abnormal temperature detector 57, forced disconnection of power to the heater 55 by the steam. 在强制断开的情况下,优选使运转控制部6的CPTOl向显示面板15发出控制指令来进行显示,以便通知使用者发生了异常情况。 In the case of forcibly disconnected, it is preferable that the operation control section 6 CPTOl 15 issue control instructions to the display panel for display to inform the user of the occurrence of abnormality.

[0065] 在选择了蒸汽漂洗的情况下,通过如上所述的运转控制部6的CPU61的动作,滚筒3内的洗涤物A伴随滚筒3的低速转动,利用设置在内周表面上的挡板33的作用被反复托起后再落下,并且向滚筒3的内部喷射提供水蒸气。 [0065] In the case where the selected steam rinse under CPU61 through the operation of the operation control section 6 as described above, the laundry in the drum 3 A low speed along the drum 3, is provided with a shutter on the inner circumferential surface effect 33 is repeatedly lifted and then dropped, and the supply of steam injection into the interior of the drum 3. 这样提供的水蒸气直接喷淋到处于落下中途或落下后的洗涤物A上,对该洗涤物A进行加热并将该洗涤物A浸湿。 Such spray steam directly supplied to the laundry in dropping midway or A after dropping, heating and wetting the laundry to the laundry A A. 虽然在洗涤运转结束后的洗涤物A上残留有脏污和洗涤剂成分,但是如上所述,浸湿洗涤物A的水蒸气会起到使脏污成分软化的作用,并且起到溶解洗涤剂成分从而使其容易被除去的作用。 Although dirt and remains in the laundry detergent composition A after the end of the washing operation, but as described above, the laundry A wet steam will serve to soften the effect of dirty component, and functions to dissolve the detergent component so that it is easy to effect removed.

[0066] 在上述动作持续规定时间后(步骤S5 :是),运转控制部6的CPTOl执行清水漂洗过程(步骤S6)。 [0066] After (Step S5: YES), the operation continues for a predetermined time, CPTOl operation control section 6 performs rinse process (step S6). 该清水漂洗过程就是以往普遍进行的过程,在进行了所述短时间的脱水过程之后,运转控制部6的CPU61分别向排水阀25发出关闭指令、向供水阀18发出切换到打开第一供水出口的指令,从而向洗涤槽2内提供规定量的漂洗用水,此外,向滚筒电动机4 发出驱动指令,使滚筒3低速转动,并且向循环泵27发出驱动指令,使洗涤用水循环,从回流管观的前端喷淋到滚筒3的内部。 After the rinse process is generally carried out a conventional process, during the dehydration process short, the CPU 61 of the operation control section 6 an instruction to emit closing drain valve 25, issues a first water outlet to the water supply valve to the open switch 18 instructions, thereby providing the washing tub 2, the rinsing water a predetermined amount, in addition, sent to a drum motor 4 driving command, the drum 3 at a low speed, and outputs a drive signal to the circulation pump 27, the washing water circulation, from the return conduit concept the front end of the spray to the inside of the drum 3.

[0067] 在清水漂洗过程中,通过运转控制部6的CPU61的上述动作,滚筒3内的洗涤物浸泡在经由周壁的小孔32流入到滚筒3内的漂洗用水中,伴随滚筒3的转动,洗涤物利用所述挡板33的作用被托起后再落下,并且与漂洗用水一起被搅拌。 [0067] In the rinse process, the above-described operation of the operation control unit CPU61 6, the laundry in the drum 3 immersed in the circumferential wall of the aperture 32 flows through the drum 3, the rinse water, with the rotation of the drum 3, using the baffle action of the laundry 33 is lifted and then dropped, and is stirred with the rinse water. 由此,残留在洗涤物A上的脏污和洗涤剂成分溶解在漂洗用水中并被除去。 Thereby, remaining on the laundry detergent composition A and dirt dissolved and removed in the rinse water.

[0068] 本发明的洗衣机在上述清水漂洗过程之前提供水蒸气并使滚筒3转动,从而可以进行使水蒸气与滚筒3内部的洗涤物A接触的蒸汽漂洗。 [0068] The washing machine according to the present invention provides the above-described water vapor before the rinsing process and the drum 3 is rotated, so that the steam may be steam inside drum 3 A contacting the laundry rinse. 如上所述,由于与洗涤物A接触的水蒸气使残留在洗涤物A上的脏污成分软化,并且溶解洗涤剂成分使其容易被除去,从而可以在短时间内可靠地实现漂洗运转的目的,即,除去脏污和洗涤剂成分。 As described above, since the A steam laundry make contact with the soiled laundry composition A remaining on the softening and dissolution of the detergent composition so that it is easily removed, so that object can be reliably achieved in a short time the rinsing operation , i.e., to remove dirt and detergent ingredients.

[0069] 通常,反复多次进行清水漂洗过程,但是由于本发明的洗衣机通过进行蒸汽漂洗, 促进了除去脏污和洗涤剂成分,所以可以减少反复进行清水漂洗过程的次数,例如使清水漂洗的次数从两次减少到一次,从而能够减少整个漂洗运转所需时间。 [0069] Generally, rinse process repeated many times, but due to the washing machine of the present invention is carried out by steam rinse, to remove dirt and facilitate the detergent ingredients, it is possible to reduce the number of repeated water rinsing process, for example water rinse the number was reduced from two to one, thereby reducing the overall time required for rinsing operation.

[0070] 图5所示的进行蒸汽漂洗的顺序和次数并不限于图5所示的流程图的方式,还能够以其它适当的方式进行。 Order and number of steam rinse is shown in [0070] FIG. 5 is not limited to the embodiment shown in the flowchart of FIG. 5, can also be performed in other suitable manner. 例如,可以最初进行一次清水漂洗,然后进行蒸汽漂洗,最后进行一次或多次清水漂洗,此外,还可以交替进行多次蒸汽漂洗和多次清水漂洗。 For example, once the initial water rinse, followed by steam rinse, final rinse with water one or more times, in addition, a plurality of times alternately and repeatedly rinse steam rinse.

[0071] 此外,也可以在清水漂洗过程中持续向滚筒3的内部提供水蒸气。 [0071] Further, the steam may be continuously provided to the interior of the drum 3 in the rinse process. 由于这样提供的水蒸气对洗涤物A进行加热,并且起到使洗涤槽2内的漂洗用水升温的作用,所以可以进一步促进除去残留在洗涤物A上的脏污和洗涤剂成分。 Since the water vapor thus supplied to the A laundry is heated, and serves to warm rinsing water inside washing tub 2, the effect can be further promoted remaining on the laundry detergent composition A and dirt removal.

[0072] 在如上所述的本发明的洗衣机中,由于在对滚筒内的洗涤物进行漂洗的漂洗运转过程中,向滚筒的内部提供水蒸气,所以能够利用水蒸气的作用来溶解滚筒内的洗涤物上所残留的脏污和洗涤剂成分并使它们容易被除去,从而能够缩短漂洗运转所需时间,并且将包含漂洗运转的洗衣机运转时间大约缩短25%。 [0072] In the washing machine according to the present invention as described above, since the laundry inside the drum during a rinsing operation for rinsing, the interior of the drum to provide water vapor, it is possible to dissolve by the action of water vapor within the drum the laundry and the detergent component remaining dirt and they can be easily removed, it is possible to shorten the time required for the rinsing operation, rinsing operation and a washing machine containing about 25% shorter operation time.

[0073] 另外,上述说明中叙述的实施方式仅用于清楚地表示本发明的技术内容,不应该狭义地解释成本发明仅限定于上述具体例子,可以在本发明的思想和权利要求的范围内, 以各种变形方式实施本发明。 [0073] In the above description, embodiments are described for clarity of illustrating the technical details of the present invention, the cost should not be narrowly interpreted invention is limited only to the specific examples, it can be thought within the claims of the invention and scope of the claims in various modified embodiments of the invention.
