Title: DOMESTIC APPLIANCE OPERATED WITH WATER HAVING A TURBIDITY SENSOR
Abstract:
A domestic appliance 1 which is operated with water and serves, in particular, as a laundry treatment appliance 1 for washing laundry, comprises a treatment region 3, a turbidity sensor 14 and a controller 7. Here, the controller 7 carries out at least one program sequence. Here, at least one rinsing liquid can be guided into the treatment region 3 in accordance with a rinsing cycle of the program sequence, wherein a turbidity of the rinsing liquid which is guided into the treatment region 3 can be detected at least approximately by the turbidity sensor 14. Moreover, the program sequence can be set by a user, wherein, in the case of a setting of the program sequence, in which an automatic adaptation of a rinsing cycle number of the rinsing cycles is set by the user, the controller 7 adapts the rinsing cycle number of the rinsing cycles during the program sequence as a function of the turbidity which is detected by the turbidity sensor 14, and wherein, in the case of a setting of the program sequence, in which a user-selectable rinsing cycle number of the rinsing cycles is set by the user, the controller 7 carries out the rinsing cycle number selected by the user of the rinsing cycles in the program sequence. The user therefore has the possibility, in addition to a manual setting of the rinsing cycle number, of also setting an automatic adaptation of the rinsing cycle number.
