I have a Siemen's Dryer model WT46E 101 GB. Can my wife

Customer Question

I have a Siemen's Dryer model WT46E 101 GB.
Can my wife replace having to take out the tray to empty the water after 1 or 2 dryings.
It is a stacked model on top of the washing machine & difficult to remove. . Is there a fitting
that can be fixed to the back to remove the water & be plumbed directly into the washing machine waste pipe?
Best Regards

HI Michael,

Thank you for your answer. Where about does the Drain Kit connect to? is it difficult connecting? Will I have to move the stacked washing Machine & Dryer away from the wall?

Would you have the contact details for me to obtain kit directly from Siemen's.Is there a name for the Drain Kit, when I enquire to purchase it?

Best Regards

Harold

HI Michael,

I emailed you on sunday26 July with the following message:

Where about does the drain kit connect to on the dryer? Are all the drain kits the same . Or it must fit the Siemens WT 46E?

Will I have to move the washer & stacked dryer away from the wall? Do you have contact details for me to obtain the kit directly from Siemens? Is there a name for the drain kit?

Best Regards, Harold

Hi for some reason I didnt get that or there was a site issue then, as they are making upgrades tot he system all the time these days but sometimes it causes trouble uugg!Anyway now that I know, I will tell you what you need.There are many drain kits out there, most are universal so almost anyone will work just as long as you have a good idea how yours needs to vent out, for example, if you have turns or bends in the drain line etc. Be sure the new kit appears to be able to run the water out the way yours needs due to space and room.You can check with your local home improvement stores for a kit like this, they should have something. If not please let me know and I will give information to get that directly from another supplier. But it may cost a bit more that wayPlease let me know if you need anything else?Thank you Harold and have a great day!Tech Mike

Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries ~ to clarify since you have already rated another engineer, there is a drain kit available but please do not use, as suggested, a universal kit as this will invalidate any warranty and most likely damage your condensate pump. I have listed below the link to the relevant kit that you need for your appliance.

herewith the fixing diagram which shows you how to fit it ~~

Hope that helps
