Abstract

See full text

Laundry washing machine (1) includes an outer casing (2) and, inside said casing (2), a washing tub (3). A rotatable drum arranged in an axially rotating manner inside the washing tub (3) and is structured for receiving the laundry to be washed. A detergent dispensing assembly (9) is structured for supplying detergent into the washing tub (3). A first fresh-water supply circuit (10) is structured for selectively channeling a flow of fresh water from the water mains towards the detergent dispensing assembly (9) and/or the washing tub (3). A water softening device (11) which is interposed between the first fresh-water supply circuit (10) and the detergent dispensing assembly (9) or the washing tub (3), and is structured for reducing the hardness degree of the fresh water supplied to the washing tub (3). The detergent dispensing assembly (9), includes a detergent container (16) which is provided with a number of detergent compartments (16a) each fillable with a respective detergent product, and a detergent flush circuit (18) which receives the fresh water from the water softening device (11) and is structured for selectively spilling/pouring the fresh water arriving from the water softening device (11) into any one of said detergent compartments (16a). The laundry washing machine (1) furthermore includes a second fresh-water supply circuit (44) which connects the water mains directly to the detergent flush circuit (18) of the detergent dispensing assembly (9), bypassing the water softening device (11), and which is structured so as to control/regulate the flow of fresh water from the water mains towards said detergent flush circuit (18).
