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

Never knowingly undersold

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.
