Product information

With its appealing glass door and white finish, the Siemens WT46E381GB condenser tumble dryer looks every inch the innovative machine.

Inside the WT46E381GB is a large stainless steel textured drum working alongside the Air flow drying system. This provides sensitive and efficient drying, with enhanced paddle action for efficient airflow. A child lock protects little fingers from harm by ensuring the machine cannot be opened during operation.

The fully electronic dial and LCD display give you complete control over your drying: it clearly shows the programme sequence, 24 hour time delay, time remaining and special options entered. Touch control buttons make customising the settings simple. A Rapid 40 cycle dries your clothes in just 40 minutes - ideal when you need those jeans in a hurry! Other settings for this machine include:

  • Lingerie
  • Outdoor
  • 20 minute warm

Reverse action Information The drum in this washer dryer rotates both ways, pausing in between, preventing clothes from tangling during the drying cycle and will therefore help them dry more quickly.
Sensor drying Information Works out how much drying time is needed by analysing the water content, thus preventing over drying and wasting less energy
Venting Position Information Vented dryers need to have the vented hose near an outside wall; condensers can be put anywhere
Vent Type Information Choose between vented, condenser or heat pump options for your dryer. See your dryer buying guide for more information on each type of venting option.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
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
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent tumble drier time saving impressive tumble drier with ease of use 10 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly Recommended We chose this tumble dryer over the Siemens heat pump version primarily because of the consistently good reviews from other other buyers (thank-you) and also the Which magazine review. We're delighted. It's quiet for a tumble dryer and every load has come out dry. We particularly like the count down which re-evaluates itself during the count down to ensure it only finishes when the load is dry. The water in the collector can be quite hot so care needs to be taken when removing unless you let it cool first. 26 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good Quality as you would expect although slightly noisier than I imagined but as it's in the conservatory it is not a problem. 21 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A condensed review Replaced an11 year old condenser drier. Pros Much quieter (you'd expect that) Much faster (you'd expect that as well) Dries well, especially the more delicate items which couldn't be dried in the older drier. Far less moisture in the air whilst drying. Easy to use - haven't read the manual yet, suppose | should really. Five year warranty. Cons The fluff collector seems insubstantial - can't see that lasting 11 years. 29 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Dryer Works well and drys quickly. Easy to use and maintain. 17 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good dryer, just make sure to read the manual! The machine itself looks a quality product. It is a bit noisy but there are not any annoying sounds coming from it, just a hum as you would expect. Some people complain that they can't get their clothes dry. Water quality affects the sensor, so some calibration is required. This is very easy to do and the manual explains it perfectly. No moisture seems to be escaping, and the drying times are very good, usually much less than the predicted 2h at the start of each cycle. 09 September 2015
