Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Didn't work at all Had to put clothes on 3 or 4 cycles and it would still come out damp. Takes more than 4 hours to dry a couple pairs of trousers and few t-shirts! Sent it back because it was so useless. 10 April 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Frustrating - wish I had bought a different dryer Every time I put sheets in to dry they end up in a tight ball. They are almost impossible to untangle and when I do manage it they are hot, damp and very creased. I usually have to wash again as ironing alone will not get the creases out. I have started using tumble balls to try and stop the problem but the clothes still end up in a tight ball. 26 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous machine ! Bought this to replace our previous Siemens tumble dryer - got the same model as it was such a good machine ( lasted 6 years of constant use, not bad !!) this model is quieter than the last, am just as pleased with this ( think the silver coloured door trim is a mistake, the White looked so much nicer, and feel this will soon 'wear' !!) can't fault it really ! 01 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Really Good I don't normally leave reviews but as I spent a lot of time looking at them I thought I would this time. This tumble dryer is brilliant. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because for the first week it did smell a bit and my washing smelt as well, the smell has almost gone now. I just bought some tumble dryer sheets so the washing didn't smell. I would have liked a more basic one but you don't seem to get those anymore. I tend to use the cupboard dry setting and most of the time just put it on 20 min warm cycle when that program has finished and the washing is dry. It seems to dry things quicker than the initial time setting as well. All in all a very good buy. 17 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very impressive I have been using this tumble drier for a few months now and am delighted with it. It is easy to use, has a great design for collecting the condensed water which is large and easy to empty, the fluff filter is easy to access and empty, the machine is quiet and it does a great job of drying the clothes. Couldn't be better. I would highly recommend this product. 04 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dries well and quietly This is definitely a better machine than our last. I am pleased with the final result but often I need to check it and put it on for longer as it dries it slower. 22 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good enough This Siemens dryer is marginally better than the John Lewis tumble dryer it replaced. Hope it lasts longer! 13 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I wasn't sure about buying a Condenser Tumble Dryer even after reading the reviews I took a few days to decide to go for it but Im glad I did. It's easy to use, no venting problems, nice big drum and it works a treat. First time I have bought a Siemens machine and I would buy again. Many thanks to the lady in John Lewis who helped me register the guarantee. 12 November 2015
