Title: LAUNDRY-CARE APPLIANCE HAVING A CONTROLLER
Abstract:
The invention relates to a laundry care appliance (100) with an inner tub (107) for receiving laundry, a drum drive (123) for rotating the inner tub (107), also comprising a torque detection device (127) for detecting torque of the inner tub (107) and a controller (121) for controlling the drum drive (123). The controller (121) is designed to control the drum drive (123) during a rotational period in order to rotate the inner tub (107) at a first rotational speed (155) when the detected torque falls below a torque threshold value (157). The controller (121) is designed to control the drum drive (123) during the rotational period in order to rotate the inner tub (107) at a second rotational speed when the detected torque exceeds a torque threshold value (157), the second rotational speed being lower than the first rotation speed (155), and the controller (121) is designed to control the second rotational speed in accordance with the detected torque of the inner tub (107) in order to prevent the laundry (109) in the inner tub (107) from being damaged.
