Panasonic's new NA-148VX3WNZ washing machines give you the best of both worlds, with a large 8kg capacity drum, within a compact 600mm body size. In order to fit a drum with the largest possible diameter inside these standard dimensions, Panasonic uses innovative 3D Sensor Technology, precise Rotation Control and Double-Action Dampers which make it possible to minimise the gap between the drum and the body.
Panasonic's new VX3 washers are designed so that washing clothes is no longer a burden on your busy life. The advanced Stain Solution technology provides 23 stain treatments to choose from, to get rid of the toughest common stains - from coffee and make-up, to red wine, the washing machine does the hard work for you. A new intuitive LCD screen on the front of the machine shows the programme you are using, the time left on the cycle as well as the temperature and spin speed, putting you in total control of every wash. The screen's error function, which shows the solution to any problem, means you'll never need to check the instruction manual.
Even with its large 8kg capacity drum, the NA-148VX3WNZ's body stays the same, so your washing machine fits neatly into regular laundry spaces. And with a new wide 340mm door opening, it is easier than ever to load and unload your clothes.
Unlike other conventional washing machines that do not change the washing mode based on the laundry requirements, Panasonic ECONAVI detects the laundry load and the water temperature to automatically reduce the wash time and the amount of water accordingly. With less water used, lower power consumption and shorter wash times, it's not hard to see why ECONAVI is the eco-friendly choice in washing machines.
Inverter technology is key, to Panasonic's industry-leading performance. The Inverter automatically changes the motor's rotation and output based on sensors inside the washing machine - to achieve perfectly clean clothes. This clever technology ensures efficient energy consumption and helps our washing machines achieve an impressive 4.5 Star Energy Rating. With a 5.0 Star Water Rating to, it's no surprise that Panasonic washing machines aren't only gentle on clothes.
Complimenting the other energy saving features, Panasonic HydroActive+ uses five multi-directional showers to ensure the most efficient washing possible. These showers rapidly deliver water, to enable deep and fast penetration of the laundry detergent into the clothes and fast rinsing - making for clean results in less time and energy savings.
New large and shapely baffles agitate clothes, thoroughly yet gently. These baffles are now completely free of any troublesome sharp angles, so they are more gentle on clothes than ever before.
The newly designed Panasonic 'Sazanami Drum' features a new interior with dimple-shaped water spouts, ideal for thoroughly removing dirt while being gentle to clothes. The rounded-edged dimples not only allow for fewer holes and less bumps than a conventional drum, but they also prevent clothes from getting caught. What's more, this unique new Sazanami surface shape also provides a high spin-drying performance, further enhancing the machine's efficiency.
Panasonic's innovative 3D Sensor Wash technology precisely analyses the movement of the drum in each dimension, adjusting the motor speed to optimise washing performance. By carefully controlling the new Sazanami drum's rotation speed, 3D Sensor wash technology ensures a smooth dropping-down process throughout the entire washing cycle. In conventional machines, with a single rotation speed, heavy clothing often collects in one place and rotation continues with the drum unbalanced. Likewise, light clothes often simply travel around 360° with the drum's rotation and do not drop properly, further hindering washing performance. 3D Sensor Wash technology detects unbalanced clothes in the drum and adjusts its rotation, which untangles clothing and ensures a stable rotation with no vibrations.
Integrated into the side of the appliance, Panasonic's new 'Silent Arch' body design effectively absorbs sounds which the machine naturally makes during the washing process, reducing annoying noise and vibration. Panasonic's brushless Inverter motor also reduces the level of high-frequency noise typically associated with high-speed spin drying, so the machines are ultra-quiet even during high-speed rotation. The result is a spinning noise of only 71dB and a washing noise of only 53dB.
Panasonic has developed a range of convenient new wash programmes to match today's lifestyles. “Mixed” is great for washing clothes with a mix of cotton, linen and synthetic fabrics. The “Silk/Lingerie” programme is perfect for delicate items such as lingerie and hand washable silks – using ‘shower washing’ to ensure less clothes damage and shrinkage. “Outdoor” is ideal for washing synthetic and water repellent outers, and a new “Denim“ programme prevents colour fading through gentle washing.
Most laundry is only lightly soiled and washed frequently, so Panasonic has introduced new “Eco” and “Speed” Modes to help users save time, water and energy. Select “Normal Wash” for efficient washing with normal energy consumption. New “Speed” Mode is perfect for shorter washing times, and “Eco” Mode is great for taking advantage of energy and water saving washing, if users don't mind waiting a bit longer for their clean clothes.
Panasonic's original 'Aqua Protection System' ensures watertight, safe operation. When water is filling the drum or draining out, sensors detect if there is any leakage and respond by shutting off the water supply at the source. A child lock keeps the door sealed so children can't accidentally open it while the machine is running, and locks all the buttons to prevent them from changing programmes.
