A laundry machine (200) adapted to process laundry (220) by means of an operative fluid is provided. The laundry machine (200) comprises a drum (215) for housing the laundry (220), an electrical heater apparatus (280) configured to heat up the operative fluid, at least one electrical device (105), and an inverter supply block (100) for electrically supplying the at least one electrical device (105). The inverter supply block (100) comprises a bulk capacitor (130). The laundry machine (200) further comprises a limiter circuit (300; 280) configured to temporarily limit a charging current drawn by the inverter supply block (100) during a bulk capacitor (130) charging phase. The limiter circuit (300; 280; 330) is configured to selectively force the passage of the charging current through the electrical heater apparatus (280).
