Title: CLEANING APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR CLEANING ARTICLES
Abstract:
The invention relates to a cleaning apparatus (110) for cleaning articles (124). The cleaning apparatus (110) comprises at least one cleaning chamber (128) and at least one covering device (134), which encloses the cleaning chamber (128) at least in part. The covering device (134) can be moved by means of at least one electromechanical drive (186), via at least one gear mechanism (184), in an opening-movement direction (139) from a closed position (135) into an open position (137) or in a closing-movement direction (141) from an open position (137) into a closed position (135). The cleaning apparatus (110) also has a sensor (202), which is designed to detect manual force applied to the covering device (134) in the opening-movement direction (139) or in the closing-movement direction (141). The cleaning apparatus (110) is also designed to activate the electromechanical drive (186) in accordance with the detection of the manual force applied.
