Title
(EN) CONSOLE ASSEMBLY FOR A DISHWASHING APPLIANCE, AND ASSOCIATED APPARATUS
(FR) ENSEMBLE CONSOLE POUR UN LAVE-VAISSELLE, ET APPAREIL ASSOCIÉ
Abstract
(EN)
A dishwashing appliance console assembly (100) and associated apparatus are provided. The console assembly comprises a control device arrangement, including a control actuator (104) having an associated indicia, and a light emitting element (112) that is de- actuated when the door assembly (50) is in the closed position, and actuated when the door assembly is pivoted from the closed position. The light emitting element communicates with a light diffuser member, and the emitted light interacts therewith to illuminate the indicia associated with the control actuator. A console cover member (150) at least partially covers the control device arrangement and facilitates interaction with the control actuator therethrough. The console cover member is configured such that the light from the diffuser member illuminating the indicia is non-specifically directed therethrough. The console cover member is substantially opaque when the light emitting element is de-actuated, and at least partially translucent when the light emitting element is actuated.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un ensemble console pour un lave-vaisselle (100) et sur un appareil associé. L'ensemble console comprend un agencement de dispositif de commande, comprenant un actionneur de commande (104) comportant un indice associé, et un élément électroluminescent (112) qui est désactivé lorsque l'ensemble porte (50) est dans la position fermée, et activé lorsque l'ensemble porte pivote à partir de la position fermée. L'élément électroluminescent communique avec un élément diffuseur de lumière, et la lumière émise interagit avec celui-ci pour éclairer l'indice associé à l'actionneur de commande. Un élément de capot de console (150) recouvre au moins partiellement l'agencement de dispositif de commande, et facilite l'interaction avec l'actionneur de commande par son intermédiaire. L'élément de capot de console est configuré de telle sorte que la lumière provenant de l'élément diffuseur éclairant l'indice est dirigée de façon non spécifique à travers celui-ci. L'élément de capot de console est sensiblement opaque lorsque l'élément électroluminescent est désactivé, et au moins partiellement translucide lorsque l'élément électroluminescent est activé.
