Abstract (en)

The potential damage to electrical components in the base of a dishwasher caused by the small quantity of water left in the casing is diverted on to a suitable concrete block at the rear of the base from which it can evaporate freely into the atmosphere.

Abstract (de)

Die Aufgabe ein System und ein Verfahren bereitzustellen, welches es erlaubt, Flüssigkeitsmengen aus dem Spülbehälter nach Außen zu leiten, ohne jedoch elektronische Bauteile und Komponenten der Geschirrspülmaschine zu gefährden, wird bei dem erfindungsgemäßen System zum Aufnehmen von im wesentlichen geringen Flüssigkeitsmengen in Geschirrspülmaschinen gelöst, indem ein Leitungssystem zum Transport der Flüssigkeitsmengen sowie ein Feststoffmittel zur Aufnahme der Flüssigkeitsmenge vorgesehen ist, wobei das Feststoffmittel erfindungsgemäß so ausgebildet ist, dass es zumindest geringe Flüssigkeitsmengen aufnehmen kann und das Leitungssystem erfindungsgemäß die Flüssigkeitsmenge zum Feststoffmittel transportiert.
