Siemens washing machine technology
Almost every new Siemens washing machine has the VarioSpeed function. This is ideal if you like to do a wash regularly and quickly, for example because your clothes only smell a little musty or do not have any stains. You can easily use VarioSpeed with any washing programme to reduce the washing time by up to 60%. Not fast enough? Then you can also choose a washing machine with Siemens PowerSpeed, which finishes your laundry program within an hour!
If you want an efficient washing machine, choose one with iSensoric. With iSensoric you save water and energy, which is good for the environment and also keeps your monthly bills down. Your Siemens washing machine does this with the help of a load sensor that measures how much laundry is in the drum, so it can calculate how much water and energy is needed to get it clean. Every new Siemens features this sensor.
Siemens Home Connect
A washing machine with Home Connect can be easily controlled remotely through an app on your phone or tablet. This allows you to turn on the washer from work, or check how long your laundry program needs. It’s all possible in the Siemens Home Connect app.
Siemens feature i-Dos stands for intelligentDosing and helps you determine how much detergent and fabric softener you need per wash. The washing machine uses a sensor to calculate how much laundry is in the drum and adds the right amount of detergent and softener. Intelligent dosing means you don’t waste anything and your clothes get as clean as possible.
With Siemens’ innovative SensoFresh feature, you can remove unwanted odors from clothes without washing them. By spreading active air and gentle mist in the drum, Sensofresh removes virtually all bacteria and odors. The program takes only 30 minutes and can also be used at low temperature.
Buy a Siemens washing machine: what to look for
If you want to buy a new washing machine, Siemens is a good choice. The washing machines of this innovative brand are known for their quality and ease of use. In addition, they have a large product range, so there is a suitable Siemens washing machine for every household. Of course, there are more aspects to consider than just the brand when buying a new washing machine. What exactly you should look for, you will see in the following tips.
Type of washing machines
You have the choice between a front-loading and a top-loading machine. Most people prefer a front-loading machine because it allows you to put something on top – in many cases this is a dryer. For this reason, front-loader models are also much more readily available than top-loaders. A top loader has the opening on the top. This can be handy if you have back problems, because you have to bend over a lot less. However, all Siemens washing machines are front-loading models. So if you prefer a top loader, you will have to look at other brands.
How much laundry fits in the drum is determined by the fill weight of the washing machine. This is one of the most important aspects of a washing machine. If you buy a washing machine with too few kg of fill weight, you will have to wash much more often. If you buy a washing machine with too much fill weight, you will never get the drum full. In both cases, you will use a lot of water and energy unnecessarily. For this reason, we recommend that you buy a washing machine with a fill weight that matches the size of your household. For a household of 1 or 2 people, that’s 6 kg or 7 kg. For 3 or 4 people, we recommend fill weight 8 kg. And if you have 5 people or more, fill weight 9 kg or more. Siemens makes washing machines with a fill weight of 7 kg to 10 kg. Most have 9 kg fill weight.
Energy class is also known as energy label and indicates how economical a washing machine is with electricity. The price of an energy-efficient washing machine is often slightly higher, but they are better for the environment and keep your energy bill down as well. Therefore, in the long run, you can actually save money with an energy-efficient washing machine. Energy-efficient washing machines have energy class A, B or C. Most washing machine models from Siemens have energy class C. Only a few of their models are less efficient than that.
The RPM of a washing machine indicates how many rounds the drum can make max per minute while spinning. The faster the drum spins, the drier your laundry will come out of the washer. At 1600 rpm (rounds per minute), your laundry will be as dry as possible. Siemens has several models that max 1600 rpm, but 1400 rpm is more common. Both 1400 rpm and 1600 rpm are considered high rpm.
The noise level gives an indication of how much noise a washing machine makes when it is at its loudest – during the spin cycle. All washing machines are divided into 4 categories: noise level loud (78 d or more), noise level normal (74 dB to 77 dB), noise level quiet (72 dB or 73 dB) and noise level extra quiet (71 dB or less). Most Siemens washing machines fall under sound level extra quiet, some even produce only 70 dB or 69 dB.
Most Siemens washing machine models are powered by a brushless motor. This is a more economical, more durable and quieter motor than those with a carbon brush – of which Siemens still sells only a few. Siemens also offers some washing machines powered by an iQdrive motor, which operate even more quietly, economically and durably.
