  • From the EP 1 884 584 A2 a washing machine is known in which a plurality of containers filled with laundry treatment agents are provided. The amount of laundry treatment agent is sufficient for several washing cycles. Furthermore, metering units are provided which introduce certain quantities of laundry treatment agents into the washing drum. The containers are arranged on a movable support, wherein the containers are accessible in an extended position and in a retracted position are not accessible.
  • The from the EP 1 884 584 A2 known washing machine has the disadvantage that the container must always be filled with the same, predetermined laundry treatment agents to achieve a predetermined program flow with the metered laundry treatment agents and thereby the desired washing result.
  • From the GB 2 311 767 A a device for controlling a dosage is known. In this case, the metering control controls the operation of at least one metering pump. In this case, the dosing control can be influenced by a user via control parameters, which in this case takes place via remote control.
  • From the US 5,873,268 For example, a dispenser for dispensing a chemical dissolved in a diluent is known. The operation of the dispenser is controlled by a program that is executed by a controller. DIP switches are provided to allow custom selection to be set to adapt the dispenser to different situations. Here, one of the switches is provided for a locking function. Locking may limit the use of the dispenser at once within five minutes so that only one dose of the detergent and bleach is used in a wash cycle.
  • The object of the invention is to provide a water-conducting domestic appliance and a method for such a water-conducting domestic appliance, which allow improved use for a user. Specifically, it is an object of the invention to provide a water-conducting domestic appliance and a method for such a water-conducting domestic appliance, in which a user can easily achieve an adaptation of the program flow with respect to the treatment agent filled by him.
  • The object is achieved by a water-conducting domestic appliance, in particular a laundry treatment appliance for washing laundry, in which a first metering container and at least a second metering, a treatment area, a first metering pump, which is for metering a treatment agent from the first metering, which is guided into the treatment area , Serves, a second metering pump, which serves for metering a treatment agent from the second metering container, which is guided into the treatment area, and a controller are provided, which serves to drive the metering pump, wherein in the control a plurality of treatment programs are deposited, the treatment programs are assigned by a user variable program parameters, wherein the controller controls the metering pumps during a program flow of the currently selected treatment program depending on the set program parameters, wherein the variable program parameters Dosi the include the blocking and / or release parameters assigned to containers and during a program sequence of the currently selected treatment program, the controller only activates a metering pump to be actuated according to the program sequence of the currently selected treatment program if the blocking and / or release parameter assigned to the metering container of the metering pump to be activated is the currently selected one Treatment program allows access to this dosing container, and solved by a method for controlling a water-conducting household appliance, in particular a laundry treatment apparatus for washing laundry, wherein a first metering pump, which is used for metering a treatment agent from a first metering container, which is guided into a treatment area, serves, and at least a second metering pump, which serves for metering a treatment agent from the second metering container, which is guided into the treatment area, during a Programmabl be controlled on a currently selected treatment program in response to set program parameters, the Program parameters that are associated with the treatment programs are changeable by a user, wherein the variable program parameters comprise the dosing containers associated blocking and / or release parameters and wherein the controller during a program flow of the currently selected treatment program a corresponding to the program flow of the currently selected treatment program to be controlled dosing pump only controls when the metering of the metering pump to be controlled blocking and / or release parameters allows the currently selected treatment program access to this dosing.
  • The measures listed in the dependent claims advantageous refinements of the inventive water-conducting household appliance and the method of the invention are possible.
  • The water-bearing domestic appliance can advantageously have a plurality of metering containers, each of which is associated with a metering pump. In this case, more than two metering and correspondingly more than two metering pumps can be provided. The dosing can also be formed by individual chambers of a reservoir. Furthermore, it is possible for a dosing container to be divided in order to optimally utilize, for example, the space available within a housing of the water-conducting domestic appliance. The dosing can have the same or different volumes. The treatment agents are not necessarily part of the water-bearing household appliance and can be manufactured and distributed independently of this. A user can then buy such treatment agents as needed and fill in the dosing.
  • It is advantageous that the variable program parameters include treatment agent parameters assigned to the dosing containers. It is especially advantageous in that the treatment agent parameters are adjustable to predetermined treatment agents, wherein the predetermined treatment agents comprise "heavy-duty detergent", "color detergent", "mild detergent", "wool detergent", "fabric conditioner", "bleach", "impregnation additive" and "care additive". A user can then fill the dosing containers in any manner with the treatment agents. A fixed allocation of the treatment agent to the individual dosing tanks is not required. Depending on the configuration of the water-conducting domestic appliance, it is also conceivable that a user fills two or more dosing containers with the same or a comparable treatment agent, for example with a heavy-duty detergent. The user can then set the appropriate treatment agent for each dosing. For example, the user may set "full detergent" for the first dosing tank and "softener" for the second tank.
  • It is also advantageous that the variable program parameters include basic metering quantity parameters assigned to the metering containers. For example, a base dosage amount may be indicated on the user-purchased detergent bottle. When the user fills the detergent from this detergent bottle into the first dosing container, the user may set the basic dosage amount parameter for that dosing container to the indicated basic dosage amount. In this way, regardless of the concentration of the detergent, the correct amount of detergent can be metered during the program flow of the currently selected treatment program. Here, on the basis of the basic dosage amount, an adjustment to the water hardness, the amount of laundry or the like can take place.
  • It is also advantageous that the variable program parameters include blocking and / or release parameters associated with the dosing containers and that during a program run of the currently selected treatment program, the controller only activates a dosing pump to be triggered according to the program sequence of the currently selected treatment program, if the dosing pump to be controlled for the dosing pump associated blocking and / or release parameters allows the currently selected treatment program access to this dosing. For example, a user may load a fabric softener into a dosing container and allow access to the dosing container in which the fabric conditioner is stored for certain treatment programs, such as delicates. while for other treatment programs, such as a Bunwaschprogramm, access to the dosing is blocked with the softener. Thus, the user may selectively provide certain treatment agents for particular treatment programs.
  • It is also advantageous that a display device connected to the controller is provided which enables the display of the program parameters associated with the treatment programs. This allows a simplified selection by the user and a control of the program parameters.
  • It is also advantageous that a manual input device connected to the controller is provided, via which the program parameters can be set by a user. It is also possible that a radio interface connected to the controller is provided, via which the program parameters can be set. For example, the radio interface can be designed as an RFID radio interface. For example, an RFID element can be arranged on the purchased detergent bottle, as a result of which certain program parameters can be detected in a simple manner. For example, a basic dosage amount can thereby be detected.
  • It is also advantageous that a non-volatile data memory permanently connected to the controller is provided and / or that a reading device connected to the controller is provided, which serves for reading program parameters stored on an external data carrier, and / or one connected to the controller Network interface, in particular an Internet interface, is provided which serves a user to change the program parameters by means of external information. Thereby, the operability for a user can be further improved. In addition, the water-bearing household appliance can be adapted to new situations within certain limits. In particular, a newly adjustable system can be created as well as an adaptation to a changed consumer behavior, an adaptation to developments in the textile and clothing market and / or adaptation to developments in the washing and care products market.
  • Preferred embodiments of the invention are explained in more detail in the following description with reference to the accompanying drawings. It shows:
  • Fig. 1
    a water-conducting household appliance in a partial, schematic representation according to an embodiment.
  • Fig. 1 shows a water-conducting household appliance 1 in a partial, schematic representation according to an embodiment. The water-bearing domestic appliance 1 can in particular be designed as a laundry treatment appliance and serve for washing and optionally for drying laundry. Specifically, the water-bearing domestic appliance 1 can be configured as a washing machine or washer-dryer. The water-bearing domestic appliance 1 is suitable in accordance with adapted modification for other applications.
  • The water-bearing domestic appliance 1 has a fresh water line 2, in which a check valve 3 is arranged. The fresh water line 2 of the water-bearing household appliance 1 can be connected to a connection 4 with a domestic installation. The fresh water line 2 leads via a free air gap in a Einspülbehälter 5. The water-bearing domestic appliance 1 also has a plurality of metering 6, 7, 8, 9, which are formed by a plurality of chambers of a reservoir 10 in this embodiment. Furthermore, the water-bearing domestic appliance 1 has a metering device 11 with a plurality of metering pumps 12, 13, 14, 15. Each metering container 6 to 9 is assigned one of the metering pumps 12 to 15.
  • A user can fill the dosing containers 6 to 9 with treatment agents, in particular laundry treatment agents. For example, a user may load a heavy duty detergent, a color detergent, a mild detergent, a wool detergent, a fabric softener, a bleach, a saturant, or other conditioning additive into the dosing container 6. By actuating the metering device 12, the laundry treatment agent introduced into the metering container 6 can be conveyed into the dispensing container 5. By actuating the check valve 3, fresh water can be simultaneously fed into the dispenser 5 in order to guide the laundry treatment means together with the fresh water via a connecting piece 16 into a treatment area 17 of the water-conducting domestic appliance 1. The treatment area 17 is surrounded by a tub 18 in this embodiment.
  • At an outlet 19 of the tub 18, a drain line 20 is arranged, in which a drain pump 21 is arranged. The drain line 20 is connected to an outlet 22 of the water-bearing household appliance with a sewer pipe of the domestic installation.
  • The stocked in the dosing 6 laundry treatment agent may be sufficient for several program runs. By means of the metering pump 12 in this case a part of the laundry treatment agent from the metering container 6 via a line 23 can be removed. Accordingly, the metering containers 7, 8, 9 can be filled with laundry treatment agents, wherein about the metering pumps 13, 14, 15 each laundry treatment agent via lines 24, 25 ', 26' are removed.
  • The individual metering pumps 12 to 15 of the metering device 11 can be controlled by a controller 25. The controller 25 can in this case in addition to the metering pumps 12 to 15 of the metering device 11 also control other facilities and thus functions of the water-bearing domestic appliance 1. For example, the controller 25 according to a program flow of the currently selected treatment program, the check valve 3, the drain pump 21, a drive for a laundry drum, not shown, and the like.
  • The water-bearing domestic appliance 1 has a non-volatile data memory 26 which is permanently connected to the controller 25. Program parameters are stored in the non-volatile data memory 26. In this case, the program parameters are stored as changeable program parameters in the nonvolatile data memory 26. In addition, output values for the variable program parameters, which themselves can not be changed, can also be stored in the non-volatile data memory 26. As a result, initial values for the program parameters are always available when the water-bearing domestic appliance 1 is put into operation or for a restart of the water-bearing household appliance 1. The variable program parameters are taken into account by the controller 25 during a program sequence of the currently selected treatment program when controlling the metering pumps 12 to 15 of the metering device 11.
  • The controller 25 is connected to a display device 27 and an input device 28. In this case, the display device 27 and the input device 28 may also be combined in one component, for example in a touch-sensitive display and input field. Via the input device 28, a user can select a treatment program. For example, a cooking wash program, a color wash program, a fine wash program, a wool wash program, an impregnation program, or the like may be selected. The treatment programs may also be differentiated by different wash temperatures, whereby a user may also specify the treatment program by specifying a basic program and a wash temperature.
  • In addition, the user via the input device 28, the program parameters that are stored in the data memory 26, change. A part of the variable program parameters is given by the metering containers associated treatment agent parameters. In this case, each of the metering containers 6 to 9 is assigned a treatment agent parameter. Each of these treatment agent parameters can be set by the user via the input device 28 to predetermined treatment means. The predetermined treatment agents include, for example, "heavy duty detergent", "color detergent", "mild detergent", "wool detergent", "fabric softener", "bleach", "impregnation additive" and "care additive". The prescribed treatment agents depend on the available treatment programs. Optionally, fewer treatment agents, other treatment agents or additional treatment agents may be adjustable. In combination with the display device 27, which displays the possible treatment means, for example successively, a comfortable setting of the treatment agent parameters for the individual metering containers 6 to 9 is possible for the user. For example, the user may add a wool detergent to the dosing tank 8 instead of a softener. The user then sets the treatment agent parameter associated with the dosing tank 8 to "wool detergent". Thus, the controller 25 can control the metering pumps 12 to 15 during the program sequence of the currently selected treatment program depending on the set treatment agent parameters. For example, during a wool washing program, the controller 25 may actuate the metering pump 14 to deliver wool detergent from the metering vessel 8 via the line 25 'to the dispenser 5 via line 25'.
  • In addition, part of the program parameters stored in the data memory 26 are formed by basic dosage amount parameters. For example, the concentration of laundry treating agents may vary. In addition, the active ingredients of the laundry treatment agent may require a different dosage due to technical advancements. In addition, the composition of the laundry treatment products may vary regionally or nationally. By setting the respective basic metering amount above the basic metering quantity parameter, optimum metering can be achieved for each of the laundry treatment products stored in the metering containers 6 to 9. When operating the metering pumps 12 to 15 also a set water hardness, the amount of laundry in the tub 18 and the like can be taken into account to determine the Zumessmenge of the respective treatment agent.
  • For example, the basic dosage amounts may be indicated on the package or a bottle of the purchased laundry treating agent. The user can then set the basic dosage set parameters to appropriate values via the input device 28.
  • The controller 25 is also connected to a radio interface 29, in particular an RFID radio interface 29. Via the radio interface 29, the required program parameters can also be read by an RFID element which is mounted on the packaging or bottle of the purchased laundry treatment agent. In this case, it is possible for the user via the input device 28 to set only the dosing container into which he has filled the laundry treatment agent, while for example the treatment agent and the basic dosing amount are read in via the radio interface 29, so that the controller 25 determines the corresponding treatment agent parameter and the corresponding Basic dosage quantity parameter programmed. The values determined here may optionally be displayed in the display device 27 and confirmed by the user via the input device 28.
  • In addition, the controller 25 may be connected to a reader 30. The reader 30 may read an external volume stored on the program parameter are. Furthermore, the controller 25 may be connected to a network interface 31, in particular an Internet interface 31. As a result, the program parameters can also be read via a network, in particular the Internet. For example, a user may select the purchased laundry treating agent via the input device 28, the associated program parameters being obtained via the Internet.
  • In this case, the program parameters can be displayed in an advantageous manner in the display device 27 and optionally adjusted by the user via the input device 28.
  • In addition, a part of the variable program parameters stored in the data memory 26 may be formed by blocking and / or release parameters associated with the dosing containers 6 to 9. In this case, a user can determine for each of the metering containers 6 to 9 for which treatment program access to the respective metering container 6 to 9 is possible or not.
  • For example, a user can fill in the dosing container 9 a fabric softener. Furthermore, the user can specify for the dosing container 9 that an access is blocked in the case of a full-washing program and access is enabled in the case of a fine-washing program. If the controller 25 then executes a full wash program selected by the user, wherein the addition of a fabric conditioner is provided according to the program sequence of the full wash program, then the metering 15 associated with the metering 9 is still not controlled by the controller 25, as the blocking and / or Release parameters the Vollwaschprogramm access to the container 9 is not allowed. On the other hand, if the controller 25 selects the fine wash program selected by the user in which the softener is metered according to the program sequence, then the controller 25 controls the metering pump 15 associated with the container 9 for metering softener since the meter is assigned to the metering container 9 Blocking and / or release parameters the fine wash program access to the metering 9 allowed. Thus, a user can specify which laundry treatment agents are available for the respective laundry treatment programs. For example, the user may determine which wash treatment programs to soak the laundry should be done by means of a fabric conditioner. Thus, a high level of user-friendliness of the water-bearing household appliance 1 is possible.
  • Thus, the user can choose freely for each automatic dosing 6 to 9, which washing and care agent he fills in this and which laundry treatment programs he allows access to this dosing and the treatment agent. The method for setting the program parameters via the display device 27 and the input device 28 can take place in the following steps:
  • In a first step, one of the metering containers 6 to 9, which is to be activated, is selected.
  • In a second step, the product specification of the washing and care product takes place. In this case, the user selects via the input device 28, whether it is a heavy duty detergent, a color detergent, a mild detergent, a wool detergent, a fabric softener, a bleaching agent, an impregnating agent, a care additive or the like. As a result, the treatment agent parameter is determined for the metering container which has been activated in the first step.
  • In a third step, the basic dosage for the dosing, which has been controlled in the first step, set. This can be done via the input device 28 by the user. As a result, the basic metering quantity parameter for the metering container, which was activated in the first step, is determined.
  • In a fourth step, the washing programs to be blocked for the dosing tank, which was activated in the first step, can be defined. For example, the individual washing programs can be displayed in the display device 27.
  • In a fifth step, the free washing programs for the dosing tank, which was activated in the first step, can be determined.
  • After the fourth and the fifth step, the blocking and / or release parameters for the metering container, which was activated in the first step, are determined.
  • As long as the dosing 6 to 9 are filled with laundry treatment agents unchanged, a readjustment of the variable program parameters is not required. However, if the laundry treatment agent of one or more metering containers 6 to 9 is changed, then a change in the associated program parameters is usually required.
  • In order to further improve the user-friendliness of the water-conducting household appliance 1, product-specific recognition features can also be displayed in the display device 27. For example, an image, logo, brand, or the like of the respective product may be displayed for control in the display device 7, or selection may be made by the user in this regard. Depending on the configuration of the water-conducting domestic appliance 1, the available data can be refreshed here, for example via the network interface 31, the radio interface 29 or the reader 30. Thus, a comfortable input of the product features of the treatment agent to ensure a well-adapted dosage and thus one Optimized cleaning and care behavior possible. In addition, a high-quality appearance of the water-conducting household appliance 1 can be ensured, which is possible in particular with a designed as a full-graphics display display device 27.
