All Siemens dishwashers, regardless of the particular design, comply with high quality standards. The German brand has earned a reputation as a reliable manufacturer - the company's products are high-tech, equipped with innovative solutions and many convenient options.

This approach also affected the cost. Siemens dishwashers belong to the medium and highest price range. In this article, we will consider the best brand offers that are in high demand among buyers. We study the technical characteristics of these models, their advantages and disadvantages. We also give recommendations regarding the choice of a dishwasher.

Features dishwashers Siemens

Since 1847, the German company Siemens has been developing in the field of electrical and lighting engineering, energy and medical equipment.

For most users, the brand is known as a manufacturer of large home appliances and mobile phones.

Dishwashers Siemens
Since 1967, Siemens, together with the Bosch trademark, are part of the single largest concern. The collaboration of Siemens with Bosch made it possible to technically improve products and bring their products to leading positions

The product lines of both companies sometimes overlap - in household appliances, including dishwashers, the same technologies are often used. However, there are differences between brand products.

Siemens dishwashers are positioned as premium equipment.

The technician has gained this status thanks to a number of competitive advantages:

  1. Reliability. All Siemens dishwashers are manufactured in German factories according to European standards using high-precision and high-quality components.The degree of reliability of German technology is beyond competition - this is evidenced by the minimum number of user requests to service centers.
  2. Manufacturability. The machines are equipped with an inverter engine that increases the efficiency and safety of work. Most models perform condensation drying with a heat exchanger. In the most advanced units from Siemens, the innovative Zeolith technology is implemented.
  3. Multifunctionality. The software and practical options are impressive. The developers took into account all the requirements of the customers and proposed optimal modes with the possibility of their independent adjustment - the choice of temperature, washing and drying speeds.
  4. Technical specifications. The involved innovative solutions made the work as economical as possible - Siemens dishwashers belong to the energy consumption classes A, A +, A ++ and A +++. In addition, all equipment is very quiet - the noise effect does not exceed 45 dB.

The company’s arsenal has a wide range of domestic dishwashing equipment. You can choose a model taking into account the individual characteristics of the family and the dimensions of the kitchen.

What to look for when choosing a dishwasher?

The range of brand units includes several dozen models. In order not to get confused in the variety of samples, it is necessary to adhere to the conditional selection algorithm.

Criterion # 1 - model installation method

One of the determining purchase criteria is the installation method. The choice of model depends on the intended location of the machine relative to the kitchen set.

Dishwasher Siemens
Like any premium product, Siemens dishwashers differ in price from comparable competitor products. Price range - 350-1500 cu

All Siemens dishwashers can be divided into four groups:

  • freestanding;
  • fully integrated;
  • partially integrated;
  • recessed with remote panel.

Most users prefer integrated dishwashers that are completely hidden behind the furniture facade. The main arguments: aesthetic harmony of the interior and additional sound insulation. If you are inclined to such a model, we recommend that you read the instructions for self-installation of the facade.

A variety of integrated modifications - dishwashers with an open control panel.

Partially built-in dishwashers
The slot with buttons and display remains visible, which allows you to monitor the progress of the process and select the parameters of the equipment without opening the door

In partially embedded models, the front side remains open. The Siemens range includes several such dishwashers, their features: compactness (height - 45-60 cm) and the possibility of "tapping" into vertical cabinets.

If large-scale repairs with updating kitchen furniture are not planned, then a freestanding dishwasher will be the best option.

The manufacturer Siemens offers two solutions: roomy floor-standing units and desktop compact ones. Plus isolated technology - a more affordable cost.

Criterion # 2 - hopper capacity and dimensions

Both parameters are interconnected - the larger the dimensions, the higher the capacity and performance of the equipment.

Based on the dimensions, Siemens dishwashers can be divided into three categories:

  • full-size models;
  • narrow aggregates;
  • mini-cars of small height.

TO full-sized dishwashers include models 60 cm wide. Their height, as a rule, is standard - 82 cm. In such models, the capacity of the hopper is 12-14 sets.

Width narrow units - 45 cm. This is the most popular series of dishwashers, allowing you to equip even modest kitchens with appliances.

Dishwasher capacity
Due to the ergonomics of the hopper and mobile baskets, it is possible to maximize the use of internal space, the capacity of narrow modifications of a typical height is 9-10 sets. This is enough to serve a family of 4

Baby Dishwashers 45-60 cm high are able to wash 6-8 sets in one cycle. Such options are designed for a family of one or two people.

When choosing roominess, it should be understood that one set of dishes means a set of 8 items: a deep and flat soup soup for second courses, a cup, a saucer, a glass, a spoon, a knife and a fork.

The volume of the bunker must be selected based on the number of people, taking into account the dimensions of the dishes used for cooking - pans, pans and trays take up a lot of space.

Criterion # 3 - technical potential and functionality

In Siemens dishwashers, technologies are brought together that allow you to get a high washing result against the background of convenient operation and economical consumption of resources. Note the most significant and recommended of them.

Drying Technology Zeolith

Unique drying technology, which has no analogues and is characterized by high efficiency. Its principle of operation is based on the properties of the mineral - zeolite absorbs moisture and transforms it into heat.

Zeolite drying
The use of the natural qualities of the material allowed to accelerate the work cycle, reduce energy consumption, avoid the formation of stains on the dishes, as in condensation drying

The container with zeolite is located in the corner of the lower part of the body. At the washing stage, the accumulated heat is spent on heating the water, and in the drying mode it is transferred by dry air to the chamber. Zeolite is a self-healing substance, it is not necessary to change it during the operation of the equipment.

IQdrive inverter motor

The heart of the dishwasher is the motor. All modern Siemens models use an inverter motor.

Inverter motor
Brushless motors completely displaced their predecessors thanks to significant advantages: quiet running, energy efficiency and durability

AquaStop and AquaSensor Technologies

Absolute leakage protection system. In German dishwashers, a two-stage mechanism is provided.

When a leak occurs, the solenoid valve is activated, blocking the flow of fluid. In an emergency, the water pumping system is turned on.

Built-in sensors monitor the transparency of the water. The technology aims to reduce resource consumption - if the quality of the water meets the standards, then the machine can reuse it.

IntensiveZone and VarioSpeed ​​+ Cleaning Functions

The mode for simultaneous washing of different degree of contamination and durability of dishes.

In the lower box, the water pressure and temperature are higher - in this zone pots, contaminated baking sheets and pans are placed. At the top, dishes are washed in a gentle mode - here you can set cups and fragile glass.

Double rocker
DuoPower. The Germans' proprietary design is a rotating double rocker. The hydraulic system ensures efficient distribution of water throughout the chamber; even inaccessible zones of the bunker are involved

The machine operates in accelerated mode, washing time is reduced by 30-50%. The program is indispensable if the dishes need to be washed very quickly.

The dishwasher changes the algorithm and the operating parameters: water pressure, amount of rinsing. This mode is not suitable for fragile dishes made of thin glass.

Water Condition Monitoring Technology

Optosenser - monitoring the state of water. Due to the built-in sensors, the device notifies users of the content of lime and calcium suspensions, as well as the need to use regeneration salt.

The system allows you to react and soften water in time, protecting dishes and the internal details of the dishwasher.

TimeLight Option
Time-Light. Convenient device for fully integrated machines. The unit projects a light message on the floor, informing about the remaining operating time.

Additional features dishwashers

In addition to the listed technologies and functions, many Siemens models have additional solutions designed to make using the dishwasher as convenient as possible.

Useful options:

  1. Opening the machine is done with the touch of your fingers, and you can refuse handles on the facade. The technology is provided in some embedded models.
  2. Program with increasing water temperature to 70 ° - The mode is relevant for the care of children's dishes and washing chopping boards.
  3. Snooze timer. Provided in most Siemens dishwashers.The start of work can be programmed at the right time, for example, at night, when electricity consumption is considered at reduced rates.
  4. Glasschon system and Brilliantshine. Both technologies are aimed at gentle and high-quality glass washing, provide a gentle washing regime at low temperatures and a neutral indicator of water hardness.
  5. Children castle. A useful device is not provided in all units. This option is necessary to lock the control panel - the child will not be able to independently launch or change the program.

A practical solution from Siemens - DossageAssist. Special compartment for dissolving tablets. Soapy water is already supplied to the bunker with dishes, which means that the tablet will not clog between the dishes and the machine will not work idle. An overview of the best tablet detergents for dishwashers we have given in following material.

VarioDriwer. Some machines have a third upper compartment for convenient placement of cutlery, scoops, shovels, and other kitchen utensils. This solution frees up space in the main bunker and increases its capacity.

Comparison of a brand with competitors

In the market for dishwashers along with goods Siemens units from Bosch and Electrolux.

To understand whose cars are the undisputed leaders, you need to compare the parameters that mainly affect the decision of the buyer:

  • manufacturability and reliability;
  • practicality - ease of use;
  • pricing policy.

On the first two points Siemens and Bosch confidently ahead of Electrolux. German brands' products are similar to each other - brands from a single concern often borrow technology.

However, in terms of reliability, Siemens can give priority - the company produces dishwashers mainly in Germany, less often - in Poland. Bosch has production facilities in different countries, so the quality of assembly of goods is slightly different.

In the German representatives of household dishwashers implemented technologies: Zeolith, Activewater, Timelight. To get acquainted with the best representatives of the Bosch lineup, please go to this link.

Thanks to the additional third compartment, the capacity of Siemens and Bosch is 14 sets, compared to 13 for the Electrolux.

According to the criteria of “price / quality”, Bosch dishwashers can be considered leaders. Siemens is not inferior in equipment, but the cost of models of this brand reduces demand. Electrolux is a worthy, as a rule, more affordable alternative to German dishwashers. The best offers of dishwashers from Electrolux we reviewed here.

    For some reason, there is very little information in Russian about the Siemens SN 278I36TE model. Did she even import to our country? Neither on sale, nor user reviews can not find. Can you tell me another model with control via the “smart home” system?

    • Vladimir

      Yes, it is really difficult to find a Siemens SN 278I36TE dishwasher in Russia. As a matter of fact, and all Siemens equipment as a whole. I don’t know how about industrial equipment, but German-made household appliances are imported through Ukraine and Belarus.

      Regarding the dishwasher Siemens SN 278I36TE, its cost is about 1 thousand dollars, which is a very substantial amount. If you find it difficult to sell, then you can consider analogues, for example, the same Whirlpool. Their price is more affordable, even for models that are integrated into the smart home system.

      Good afternoon! The Siemens SN 278I36TE dishwasher is almost impossible to buy in Russia. This model is created and produced only for European countries, including which it can be purchased in Ukraine. For integration into the “smart home” system, the PMM must have the function of connecting to the Home Connect mobile application. The following Siemens models presented by the manufacturer in the Russian market have such an opportunity: SN678D06TR and SN656X06TR.

      Both cars are full-size (60 cm), built-in. Please note that the price of models starts from 100 thousand rubles.

      Dishwashers of other manufacturers have a similar option:
      1. Xiaomi Viomi Internet Dishwasher 8;
      2. Bosch SMV88TD06R, Bosch SMV66TX06R;
      3. Neff S517T80D6R.

      In 2020, Electrolux promises to introduce its models with Home Connect.

      More information about the smart home system and its equipment can be found in this article on the same site.
