Abstract (en)

[origin: US2002104172A1] In the case of continuous-process washing machines (10), the treatment liquid used is conducted together with the items of laundry (11) through a drum (12) in the treatment direction (17), and in the process the items of laundry (11) are transferred together with the treatment liquid from, for example, a washing chamber (18) to a rinsing chamber (19). This leads to some of the washing liquid being mixed with the rinsing liquid, which has a disadvantageous effect on the rinsing process. The invention provides a method for the washing of items of laundry (11), in which only the items of laundry (11) are transferred from the last washing chamber (18) into the first rinsing chamber (19), without the washing liquid. As a result, the washing liquid cannot pass into the rinsing zone (15), and the method according to the invention thus prevents mixing of different treatment liquids. As a result, an effective treatment of the items of laundry (11), in particular a more effective rinsing thereof, is possible.
