Crease duration
The Siemens WT46W261 has a self-cleaning condenser . This will save time and effort that would require periodic manual cleaning. During the drying process, the device cleans the capacitor independently. The result is a lint-free capacitor also for alower energy consumption makes. The 85 centimeter high heat pump dryer has a weight of 55 kilograms. The internally illuminated drum can handle up to 8 kgare loaded. With respect to the connecting line there is a length of 1.45 meters. Programming of the device is via a fully electronic program selector . In addition, the dryer which operates on the basis of condensation, additional function keys has. In electronic display the current program status and, if activated additional functions is displayed.  Siemens WT46W261 Numerous options: total stand 15 drying programs and additional functions such as anti-crease and Finish-in function at Siemens WT36W261 available. The device has a self-cleaning condenser. Using the Endzeitvowahl ( "Done-In-Function") can be adjusted (within a 24-hour window) the desired time at which the laundry to be dried completely. The device automatically calculates the required start time and activated at the appropriate time the drying process themselves. A remaining time display provides information on the program time remaining. To protect against accidental program changes one's Parental Control installed, which protects your laundry. Furthermore ensures a crease button for wrinkle-free laundry by, after the drying cycle, by corresponding movements drum washing back up to 120 minutes and is reciprocated.
  • The max. Load weight is in this Siemens heat dryer 8 kg.
  • The unit is equipped with A ++ currently second best energy rating on a scale from A +++ to D.
  • Annually the dryer on average consumes 233 kWh (kilowatt hours). While at full load power consumption amounting to1.93 kWh was measured at the end of the standard cotton program, the consumption is part loading only 1.08 kWh .
  • The Siemens WT46W261 comprises the condensation efficiency class A in the best possible classification on a scale from A to G.
  • With a sound power level of only 64 dB (A) the Siemens dryer is one of the quietest representatives of his guild.
Integrated are intelligent, sensor-controlled functions that optimize the drying process. An important property is here theAutodry technology is, which prevents the laundry enters during drying. Furthermore, this dryer is characterized by the softDry-drum system of which enables a smooth and gentle drying. The system maintains a constant temperature and a constant stream of air is swirled by curving driver.  softDry drum system The softDry drum system enables particularly gleichmäße drying. No break the washing is prevented by the Siemens Autodry technology. Divided is the program range in easy care cotton. In both cases, two different programs for cabinet dry laundry are. Furthermore, there are programs for finish ironing dry laundry, shirts and wool. The offer is completed by a drying program for lingerie and a40-minute rapid drying program . Among the programs for cotton, the points Iron dry, towels and are also outdoor to find. The latter is a particularly gentle drying of functional textiles . In addition to the hot-program there is also the generally applicable cold-drying program. Also included is an anti-crease button , thereby creating additional burdens is avoided when ironing. This is supported by an intense reciprocating the laundry, which will take place up to 2 hours after the end of the drying process. In detail, the following programs are available:
  • Hot wash Coloureds
  • silk
  • Easy care
  • ventilation
  • Wool
  • Mixed laundry
  • Blouses / shirts
  • towels
  • short program
  • Outdoor / Sport
  • Time Option Programs
Within the individual programs can be further fine gradations make. This heat pump dryer offers its various drying programs a number of useful additional functions. Particularly worth mentioning is the self cleaning condenser , which facilitates the work for the user and ensures a consistently low energy consumption. We can Siemens WT46W261 thoroughly recommended . We brief the essential characteristics of the heat pump dryer WT46W261 together:
  • Energy efficiency class A +++
  • 15 drying programs
  • up to 8 Kg load
  • Parental control against accidental programming changes
  • Quiet operation
  • Adjustable residual moisture value
  • Internally illuminated drum
  • Anti-crease function
