Abstract:
The invention relates to a laundry-care appliance (100), comprising a suds container (105) for holding washing liquid, a water supply means (111), which is fluidically connected to the suds container (105) by a supply line (109) and is designed to supply fresh water (115) to the suds container (105), wherein the suds container (105) comprises an outlet opening (117) and an inlet nozzle (119), wherein the outlet opening (117) is fluidically connected to the inlet nozzle (119) by a line (121), wherein a suds pump assembly (123) for pumping washing liquid is arranged in the line (121), wherein the suds pump assembly (123) is fluidically connected to a drain hose (125) and is designed to pump washing liquid out of the laundry-care appliance (100) via the drain hose (125) during a pump-out operation, and a controller (133) for controlling the water supply means (111) and the suds pump assembly (123). The controller (133) is designed to activate the water supply means (111) during a water supply operation in order to supply an amount of fresh water (115) to the suds container (105). The controller (133) is designed to activate the suds pump assembly (123) during a pumping operation in order to pump the supplied amount of fresh water (115) out of the suds container (105) up to a drain level (135) in the drain hose (125) in order to replace washing liquid present in the drain hose (125) with fresh water (115).
