I'm wanting to buy a Siemens WT46W567GB (or IQ 700) dryer, see here: http://www.siemens-home.co.uk/WT46W567GB.html
It's a condensing dryer, but I'm pretty lazy and I don't want to have to empty the reservoir after every cycle. There seems to be no "official" conversion kit to let me plumb it so that the water drains automatically. I was under the impression that as long as the reservoir drawer is at the top of the machine (it is), it should be fairly easy to run a bit of hose from wherever the water drips into the reservior, and to redirect it to the drain instead. Is this basically how those kits work?
On speaking to Siemens technical helpline I was told no kit is available because "it is a self-cleaning model" (it is billed as having a self-cleaning condenser). Does that make much sense to anyone? I think maybe the condensate is somehow used in cleaning the condenser, but then ultimately it must still drip into the drawer, so I don't understand why that would make a difference.
By the way, it's going in the cellar so it has to be a consenser, there is a drain easily available there, and I know that there are other models where conversion to drainage would be easy, but I particularly like this one.
