  • Patent number: 10945583
    Abstract: A dishwasher, in particular a domestic dishwasher, including a washing compartment, at least one washing basket disposed in the washing compartment to hold items for washing, and a door configured to close the washing compartment. The door has a planar surface to form an inner face of the door as a whole or a part thereof. When the door is closed, a guide structure including a plurality of individual guide elements projects in a raised manner from the planar surface into an interior of the washing compartment and is disposed so as to guide a drying fluid flowing along the inner face of the door onto the items in the washing compartment, when the dishwasher is in drying mode.
