Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19859571A1] The invention relates to an inclined cylindrical washing machine drum (7). Said drum has washing carriers (1) wherein a liquid (9) which has been scooped out can be raised and then sprinkled onto the washing inside the drum (7) from a raised position while the drum is rotating. When the liquid level is low as a result of the inclined position of the drum, liquid (9) is only guided into part of the carriers (1). Run-off ramps (2) which are horizontally oriented or present a slope when the carriers (1) are in their highest position are provided inside the carriers (1). On said run-off slopes, the scooped-out liquid (9) flows into the direction in which the axis of rotation (8) of the drum ascends. This ensures that despite the limited scooping area, the scooped-out detergent solution (9) in the carrier (1) is distributed over a larger section and sprinkled more evenly in the inside of the drum. Consequently, the external shape of the carriers (1) need only be modified slightly or not at all.
