Abstract (en)

The present invention provides a laundry drying apparatus and a method for controlling a condenser 0. The laundry drying apparatus includes a condenser 0, a water control valve 1 and a water tank 2. The water control valve 1 is connected to a water inlet 3 of the water tank 2, the water tank 2 includes a first water outlet 5 and a second water outlet 6, the first water outlet 5 and the second water outlet 6 are separately connected to the condenser 0, and the position of the first water outlet 5 on the water tank 2 is higher than that of the second water outlet 6, as determined relative to a direction of gravity. The water control valve 1 feeds water to the water tank 2 through the water inlet 3 of the water tank 2; when a water level in the water tank 2 reaches the second water outlet 6, water flows out of the second water outlet 6 to cool the condenser 0; and when the water level in the water tank 2 reaches the first water outlet 5, water flows out of the first water outlet 5 to wash the condenser 0. In the invention, only one water control valve 1 is needed to implement a cooling and a washing function for the condenser 0, and a problem of relatively low precision of a flow rate caused by a water control valve 1 having a small flow rate can be alleviated.
