Abstract (de)

Bei einem Wäschetrockner (1) werden Flusen (11) aus einem Trockenluftstrom mit einem Flusenfilter (7) entfernt. Um dieses zu reinigen, ist eine Vorrichtung (8) vorgesehen, mit der der Trockenluftkanal vor dem Flusenfilter (7) im Querschnitt verengt oder ganz versperrt werden kann, um einen Luftstrahl zu erzeugen, mit dem die Flusen (11) vom Flusenfilter (7) weggeblasen werden können. Diese Vorrichtung (8) zum Verengen des Querschnitts desTrockenluftkanals ist vorteilhafterweise eine schwenkbare Klappe, die beim Verschwenken eine Öffnung im Trockenluftkanal freigeben kann, durch die die abgeblasenen Flusen (11) weg und insbesondere in einen Flusensammelbehälter (9) geblasen werden können. <IMAGE>
