Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0242541A1] A machine having a rotating container as well as at least one balancing chamber which is fillable with a liquid for correcting out-of-balance rotational operation of the container and a method of operating the machine is described. A degree of out of balance operation of the container is detected at a position in a sub-system of the machine at which a ratio of a maximum rotational frequency of the drum to the resonant frequency of the sub-system is less than 90 %, more preferably less than 85 % and most preferably less than 80 % and injecting the liquid into the at least one balancing chamber to correct for out-of-balance operation of the rotating container based on the detecting step.
