- 8kg capacity
- Front loading
- Air vented technology
- Right side door hinged
- White cabinet colour

Prior to delving look into its features, the energy consumption of this appliance is really disappointing with 3.5kW/h and the annual consumption being 243 kW/h. despite it carrying features that is pretty attractive, it fails to convince users with an energy efficiency rating of grade ‘C’.
Design and Feel: Having been designed with an air vented technology, there is an exit for the vent towards the rear on the left hand side. As this 8Kg tumble dryer works on electric power, there is a lengthy electric cord of 145 cms together with a GB plug. Aiming at a quiet performance, its advanced technology ensures the dryer is unobtrusive to the extent possible and has a noise emission of 65 dba. It consists of a large sized fluff filter that can be easily removed for hassle-free maintenance. There is a special drum designed with soft paddles that manages to function with as much less creasing as possible.
Effective Control Panel: The fact that the controls are managed with a rotary type of control, makes it easy for users to choose a programme of their choice. There is also an electronic temperature display along with electronic controls. The available LCD screen updates users on the status of a function. While most of the programmes can be accessed via a simple dial, the sensor drying can be operated with a touch control.
Programmes: Available in this Siemens WT36V398GB 8kg Capacity Tumble Dryer are 11 different drying programmes that suits different fabrics. Also included is a rapid dry programme that runs for a span of 40 minutes and best suits busy households. The other options would include the Low Heat Drying Programme, Woolen Care, Timed Programmes and Sensor Program. The timed programme can be set between 20 mins to 40mins. The Woolen Dry is yet another special feature of this dryer, which works with amazing delicate moves ensuring not to even touch the sides of the drum, thus providing utmost care to woolen fabrics. Now, the sensor drying works like magic, wherein it senses the moisture content in fabrics automatically and functions until the desired desired dryness has been obtained. Thus, it makes life simple for users who wouldn’t have to specify the time or heat settings, but just the type of fabric needs to be mentioned. In terms of heat settings, there are 3 different heat settings on offer for special cottons and coloured fabrics, easy care programmes and for timed programmes.
This WT36V398GB White Colour Vented Tumble Dryer model is a praiseworthy effort from Siemens who have thoughtfully included all the must have features together with a contemporary design that supposedly enriches any home. The elegant white casing is yet another added advantage as it suits almost any contemporary home.
