NA-140VS4 front load washing machine was intelligently designed to help you conserve water and energy every time you wash your clothes. ActiveFoam System turns detergent into fine foam that completely surrounds clothes.
Highly concentrated foam maximizes effectiveness of detergent
The ActiveFoam System turns detergent into fine foam that completely surrounds clothes. The fine foam, the more surface area they have, helping surfactants in detergent surround and lift dirt.
1) High-density foam attaches to dirt
2) ActiveFoam penetrates deep into fibers and dirt
3) Dirt is lifted from clothes to enable easier removal
The level of foaming depends on conditions such as load size, degree of soiling, detergent type, and water pressure. However, there is no change in washing performance.
Unprecedented Washing Power
It offers unprecedented washing power via combination of highly concentrated foam, penetrating advanced HydroActive+ Shower.
1. Foam Generator
The Foam Generator produces foam, while the washing process creates concentrated foam.
2. HydroActive 5 Shower
5 showers blast from all directions soaking the foam every part of clothes deeply, and wrap and lift dirt.
Panasonic’s unique steam technology, the fruit of over 60 years’ experience with steam appliances. With unique iron type heating method, water is dropped onto a heated aluminum plate to instantly create small and powerful steam particles.
Less ironing time, more time to enjoy your life!
Since the Panasonic steam particles are incredibly small and powerful, they thoroughly and effectively penetrate into fibers.
1) Fiber molecules are linked and tangled.
2) The heat and moisture in steam make fibers expand, and heating up molecules loosens the links between them.
3) As the drum rotates, the tumble action pulls fibers to return them to their original orientation.
4) The molecules are neatly straightened and fixed in position.
Up to 99.99% of bacteria* eliminated
For allergy sufferers, the good news is that the Allergy Care Course featuring Steam Action removes allergens in the same way that the Refresh Course removes odors.

The Refresh Course on Panasonic steam washers quickly lifts odors from clothes.
1) Items are sprayed with high-temperature, high–pressure steam
2) Odor particles adhering to fibers rise to the surface
3) Odor particles are eliminated.
Sensor detects load size, and adjusts to the optimum water level. When the load is small, the water level is lowered and the optimum volume of water for the load is selected to reduce waste of water.
Water Temperature Sensor
Sensor detects water temperature and adjusts to the optimum washing duration. When the water temperature is warmer, wash time is reduced and optimal wash time is automatically selected to avoid to waste time and energy.
Clothes Material Sensor
Spinning time and rinse water level is reduced when more of synthetics are detected.
Cotton: Water is not extracted easily (Regular Mode)
Synthetics: Water is extracted easily (ECONAVI Mode)
