Information about Siemens heat pump dryers
Siemens is a German company that has been an internationally renowned supplier of household appliances for many years. With a wide range of tumble dryers, Siemens has a suitable model for every type of household.
A survey by the Consumers’ Association shows that Siemens is one of the better and more popular brands when it comes to tumble dryers. This may be because they have so much choice. Cheap or expensive, simple or sophisticated – Siemens offers it all! If you look at condenser dryers, the Siemens WT43N202NL and the Siemens WT46G492NL come out best in the test of all the models currently on the market. For heat pump dryers, AEG is the best brand, but this is indicative; you can count on Siemens when you need a new clothes dryer.
Siemens clothes dryers have several features that you won’t see in other brands’ dryers. We’ll let you know about all the brand-specific features Siemens has and exactly what they do for you.
The average clothes dryer will dry a small load of one kilogram of laundry in just over 22 minutes. If you dry with a Siemens speed dryer, the same amount of laundry will be dry in just 18 minutes. With a full load in the drum, often 8 kg of laundry, you save over half an hour. Environmentally friendly and efficient!
If you have a Siemens dryer with intelligentDry and a smart washing machine from Siemens, you can link them together using the Siemens Home Connect. All the information your dryer needs to wash laundry as efficiently, energy-efficiently and gently as possible is then passed on by your washing machine. For the best drying results, choose a tumble dryer with intelligentDry.
The intelligentCleaning system from Siemens takes the hassle out of tumble drying. You no longer have to manually clean the filter after each drying cycle. Siemens tumble dryers with intelligentCleaning automatically clean the lint filter while you are drying, releasing the lint into a reservoir at the bottom of the dryer. One of the few drawbacks of the heat pump dryer is that the condenser gets dirty over time. This then needs to be cleaned. If you choose a Siemens heat pump dryer with a self-cleaning condenser, you don’t have to think about this. If you don’t like ironing or simply don’t have the time, Siemens’ smartFinish technology is a great solution. This short, special drying programme (an anti-crease phase) gets rid of the worst creases and cuts down on ironing time significantly.
Siemens offers different models of different types of household products for those who want more. The extraClass range is a special line that includes tumble dryers that offer you more luxury and ease of use than you are used to. So, for an extra-luxury Siemens heat pump dryer, check out the extra-Class range.

Buying a Siemens heat pump dryer; what to look for
If you need a new dryer, a heat pump dryer is usually a good idea. In addition, choosing Siemens is also a good decision. But, of course, there’s a lot more to buying a dryer. So check out our tips for buying a Siemens heat pump dryer. And do you have any questions? Then don’t hesitate to contact us or your supplier for personal advice.
Type of tumble dryer
There are several types of tumble dryers: the heat pump dryer, the condenser dryer and the air extraction dryer. The heat pump dryer is the most energy efficient. This is because it uses a heat pump and a refrigerant when drying. Because the heat pump dryer dries at lower temperatures, they are also better for your laundry. Looking at energy consumption, the condensing dryer is second only to the heat pump dryer. Condensate dryers dry at a higher temperature using a heating element. This means they have a shorter drying time, but use more electricity and are more likely to shrink your laundry. Airflow dryers use even more energy per cycle, so we do not recommend this type of dryer. Siemens’ range of tumble dryers now mainly consists of heat pump dryers, but they also have some condenser dryers in their range.
The energy label on a tumble dryer indicates its energy consumption. If you want to dry in an environmentally friendly way, choose an energy-efficient dryer. This will also keep your energy costs down. To save as much energy as possible, choose a heat pump dryer with energy label A++, also energy label A++ is considered energy efficient. By choosing an energy-efficient heat pump dryer instead of a regular condenser dryer, you can save up to 888 euros over the lifetime of the dryer. You can connect the dryer to the water drainage, and the moisture will be removed directly via the water outlet with a drain hose. You can also choose to collect it in a reservoir. The water tank should be emptied into the sink after each drying cycle.
The fill weight of a dryer indicates how many kilos of laundry will fit into the drum. Not sure how much fill weight you need? We recommend getting a dryer that has at least the same amount of filling power as your washing machine. That way, you can always fit all your wet laundry directly into the dryer. Are you buying a new washing machine and a new dryer? Check out the following list for guidance:
- Warm pump dryer capacity 7 kg: 1 or 2 people in a household.
- Warm pump dryer capacity 8 kg: 3 or 4 people in a household.
- Warm pump dryer drying capacity 9 kg or more: 5 people or more.
Most Siemens heat pump dryers have 8 kg fill capacity, but they also have models that have 9 kg fill capacity.
Ease of Use
Everyday, more and more dryers are offering a variety of features and technologies to make drying as easy as possible for you, and Siemens is participating fully! Such features include a self-cleaning condenser for reduced maintenance, as well as a residual time indicator, an easyclean filter, clothes protector, autodry technology, a Dutch control panel, and a range of different drying programmes, for example for extra dry, towels, shirts or that woollen jumper that takes so long to dry.
The average dryer, especially the heat pump dryer, is a lot quieter than most washing machines. Still, the noise can be distracting, for example if you wash and dry at home or you have thin walls. If you are looking for a quiet Siemens heat pump dryer, you should look at the number of decibels (dB) it produces. Dryers are rated according to three categories: Loud (67 dB or more), Normal (65 dB or 66 dB), and Quiet (64 dB or less).
The build quality of a dryer indicates its expected lifetime and drying performance. For this purpose, tumble dryers are divided into 3 categories: basic, mid-range and top-of-the-range. However, not every supplier and manufacturer is as open about the build quality of their products. For that reason, it can be useful to look at the brand and the price range. According to the Dutch Consumers’ Association, AEG, Miele, Bosch, Samsung and Siemens are the best brands for tumble dryers. Even though you can buy a Siemens hot pump dryer for a reasonable price, there are cheaper brands. This is because according to the Consumers’ Association, Siemens scores less well when it comes to value for money. If you’re looking for a heat pump dryer that scores well in this category, Whirlpool, Indesit and Zanussi are excellent brands.
