Title: LAUNDRY-CARE APPLIANCE HAVING A DRAIN HOSE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a laundry-care appliance (100), comprising a suds container (105) for holding washing liquid (111), wherein the suds container (105) has an outlet opening (113) and an inlet nozzle (115), wherein the outlet opening (113) is fluidically connected to the inlet nozzle (115) by a line (117), wherein a suds pump assembly (119) for pumping washing liquid (111) is arranged in the line (117), wherein the suds pump assembly (119) is fluidically connected to a drain hose (125) and is designed to pump washing liquid (111) out of the laundry-care appliance (100) via the drain hose (125) during a pump-out operation. The laundry-care appliance (100) has a seal (129), which is arranged in the drain hose (125), wherein the seal (129) is designed to fluidically close the drain hose (125) during a washing operation of the laundry-care appliance (100) in order to prevent a backflow of pumped-out washing liquid (111) from the drain hose (125) into the line (117). The seal (129) is designed to fluidically open the drain hose (125) during the pump-out operation in order to enable the pumping out of washing liquid (111) from the line (117) into the drain hose (125).
