Question about Siemens WT79020EU Electric Dryer

Open Question

My self condensing tumble dryer is drying the clothes, but the volume of water being collected in the tank has reduced considerably over the last couple of years, with damp air now being put into the house. What shoudl I look for to fix this. The unit where the fluff can build up is clear, and we check this regularly. Thanks. Mark

Tumble dryer not drying properly


Make sure your dryer vent is clean. This can get clogged with lint over a period of time. Make sure to check both inside and outside vents

Water will not go into the collection tray in my condensor dryer. My dryer heats up and tumbles in the right way, but the water will not go out of the drum. Its full of condensation and the clothes are...


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

I have a TB condensing tumble dryer, model TM310W, which has always worked well, but lately, although the clothes are drying, there doesn't seem to be much water going into the reservoir. I can't find it...


The first decision you must make when buying a tumble dryer is whether to buy a vented or a condenser dryer. As you'd expect, there are pros and cons for both. This page helps you understand all of the differences, including the reliability and repair implications. Condensor tumble dryers are becoming more popular but vented tumble dryers still have some advantages and the convenience of not needing a venting hose (as always) requires some compromises.
Until I can put together my own reviews the best Tumble Dryer reviews available online are by Which?
Due to their resources and independence, Which? usually have the latest reviews and collect the opinions and experiences of thousands of members - Which? tumble dryer reviews (Plenty of free information but will need to be a subscriber (take advantage of the 1 month trial offer to get the full benefit)
Vented tumble dryers are cheaper than condenser dryers, they are also simpler, more reliable and more economical to run. According to Which? "on average, vented tumble dryers use about a fifth less energy than condenser dryers to dry a full load of cottons."
So why bother with a condenser tumble dryer? Well condenser tumble dryers are a convenience product but they do offer a solution to a genuine problem for some where venting the dryer outside is difficult or even impossible.
My advice would be that if your tumble dryer can be sited somewhere that allows you to correctly vent it outside, either through a wall or through a window, then a vented dryer is probably best. If this would be particularly awkward, then buy a good quality condenser dryer, which should condense the steam into water.
Modern washing machines now have a far superior spin speed, and, of the ones we recommend, the cheaper model has a 1200 spin speed, the other a 1400 spin speed... so your washing will be fairly reasonable (some items could be about ready to iron) and this, in turn, could affect your other choices.
Could you get away with just airers and a washing line? Or have you considered a dehumidifier?
A Spin Dryer... will work efficiently, and is cheap. The main advantage to it is that it is only the size of a large pedal bin, so it can be stored under the worktop in a small amount of space.
A Tumble Dryer... much more expensive... for a decent quality item you need to pay a quite steep price. They do a good job, but are another full size kitchen appliance to find room for.
A Washer/Dryer... instead of a washing machine... disadvantages, if it goes wrong then you have no back up in either the washing or drying department... and of course being a more complicated piece of machinery, it IS more likely to break down! The only advantage is that it will be a space saving item.]
please comment on these on how helpful.

Bosch maxx 7 sensitive dryer wich stops everytime and shows that there is a problem with the reservoir




Technician just solved that annoying problem. My dryer is few months old and without pump, so condensed water is dripping to tank by gravity. During drying cloth is collected on filter and condenser, but some amount of cloth goes into pipes and canals on the bottom of dryer and clogged non-return valve where tank is inserted. Side panel ha has to be removed, canals and valve cleaned. To prevent problem technician suggested condenser and filter cleaning after every use. Valve can be removed from bottom without removing side panel.

Water will not to watercontainer. Is collected on the bottom at the back of the machine and the waterlight is blinking. The clothing will not dry...


Condenser water pump failure. The tank has a float in it attached to a micro switch. That micro switch powers the pump. I have never replaced on but I strongly suspect that switch has something to do with it. Either that or something has the pump jammed or the pump has failed.
The water gets removed from the clothes by heating the air and tumbling the clothes around. The air gets saturated with water and goes into a radiator that condenses the air to remove the moisture. The water fills into a catch pan with a pump and float. When that water fills the pan the flot kicks on the pump and the water goes for a ride up to the collector where it is supposed to be periodically emptied. At the same time you clean the lint filter you should dump the water I suppose. Facinating technology. It has not yet made it over to my neck of the woods but I imagine one day it will be here. I have an asko manual but no bosch manual sorry.

I have a Hotpint Aquarius CTD00 Condenser Tumble Dryer, it has stopped drying the clothes. It occassionally works on the high setting (but makes my clothes smell a bit burned out and shrinking) but it...


it could be blocked up with lint, take out the condenser (silver fin bit) and clean run under a tap if necessary, this is the most important bit of the condenser if this is dirty it reduces the efficiency of the dryer. clean all filters with a vacuum cleaner even remove them and clean where they sit in the machine with the vacuum cleaner.
for the reservoir remove a check the inlet is clean and clear. look inside the machine where this is located and again clean and clear this area, then using something long and thin press open the valve that the reservoir mates with (this can often stick with lint and water residue) be-careful though when opened the valve will **** out water so have a few towels to catch it all. and finally raise the front feet a little this will help the water fall to the reservoir.
if this does not work the internal tank may have fluff and this would be a big job to get to this and clean it you have to strip the drum out which can be a pain.

Water collects under dryer. Clothes dry. floor wet. Vent open.


You said, Water collects under Clothes dry on floor.This sounds like a condenser dryer that needs the water retention bottle empdied or the hose to the bottle is leaking.
Check these two things
