  • Publication number: 20210071344
    Abstract: A method for operating a laundry washing machine comprising a washing tub external to a washing drum, a recirculation system comprising a recirculation circuit configured to drain liquid from the bottom of the washing tub and to re-admit such liquid into the washing tub, a liquid level sensor device configured to detect the liquid level inside the washing tub, and a variable speed recirculation pump connected to the recirculation circuit. The method comprises a recirculation phase comprising controlling the recirculation pump by varying the rotation speed of the recirculation pump depending on a difference between the detected liquid level and a prefixed liquid level value.
