Siemens WT46W381GB Condenser Tumble Dryer, 7kg Load, A++ Energy Rating, White

Special offer

Product information

With a glass door edged in chrome, the Siemens WT46W381GB condenser tumble dryer embodies forward-thinking technology.

In contrast to conventional dryers, the Siemens WT46W381GB uses innovative activeAir technology. This unique development works alongside the integrated heat pump to warm air quickly and re-use existing heat, making this the most economical condenser dryer on the market.

Meanwhile the sensor drying system ensures consistency when drying: moisture in your laundry is monitored by an electronic system, and the drying time adjusted accordingly. This guarantees that your fabrics are treated with the utmost care, and at the same time everything is precisely dried with maximum energy efficiency.

A substantial 7kg load capacity along with an adaptable choice of programmes make the WT46W381GB a good choice for the larger household. Programmes and settings include:

  • Anti-crease cycle at the end of the programme to reduce the need for ironing
  • Woollen finish option treats your wool items with care
  • Outdoor
  • Rapid 40-minute dry helps when you are dashing off somewhere!

The large softDry stainless steel drum inside this Siemens dryer offers sensitive drying and a revolution drying system. Other features on the WT46W381GB include a 24-hour time delay and time remaining indicator.


  • Heat pump heats and re-uses air efficiently
  • activeAir technology gives the ultimately optimised dry
  • Self-cleaning condenser provides hassle-free use
  • Drum interior light
  • Buzzer indicates end of cycle

Please note: This dryer uses a refrigerant that is condensed by a compressor. John Lewis recommends against situating this appliance in a garage, shed, lean-to or outbuilding, as the lower ambient temperature could affect operating performance and invalidate the warranty.

Disappointed I wish I had taken note of earlier review. I also ordered on Black Friday but my machine does not dry the washing. I changed the factory settings but I still have to put the washing on radiators to dry. 16 January 2014
Very good Got this on a black Friday deal as spear of the moment, as fed up of washing never drying. Had to do some adjustment of the setting to get it to an end dryness I wanted. It's factory setting end dryness is slightly damp, so turned it up two level and now comes out perfectly dry. Very quiet, sit happily in our cupboard and makes a cloths lovely and soft and smell nice, such a nice change from the days taking to dry on a drying rack!!! 09 December 2013
Does not dry If you want a dryer which dries your clothes, etc, then this is NOT the product for you. It takes 3 hours to 'cupboard dry' a load and when it is finished the laundry is still damp. You then have to put the laundry in an airing cupboard or hang it on radiators to finish the drying. Siemens says this is being 'energy efficient' - actually the only reason it does not use mega amounts of electricity is because it only does half the job. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT OR YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED TOO. 27 November 2013
