Since the Panasonic “Easy Wide Opening” style washing
machine has a control panel to the rear of the lid, the
opening is large and easier to see into. Plus, approximately 5
cm* of excess height has been eliminated. You can wash
larger loads of even 10 kg or over with ease.

No More Missed Laundry
The interior is fully visible when the lid is open.
Wide Tempered-Glass Lid
The stylish lid features a window of premium glass. Now, it’ s easy to keep an eye on your
Catenary Curve Design
Integrated into the sides of the appliance, the “Catenary Curve” design effectively absorbs
sounds which the machine naturally makes during the washing process, reducing
bothersome noise and vibration.
Water Saving with Wash
When the load is small, the water level is lowered to save
water. The optimum volume of water for the load is selected
so no water is wasted.
Time & Energy Saving with
When the water temperature is warmer, energy is saved by
reducing the wash time. By automatically setting the wash
time to the optimal duration, both wasted time and energy
and over-washing can be avoided.
The Inverter is Panasonic’ s core technology.
Next-generation performance that combines advanced
Inverter technology and cutting-edge environmental
technology to enable both energy saving and powerful
Aqua Spin Rinse
The Aqua Spin Rinse reduces water usage during rinsing, the
washing cycle that uses the most water.
Dancing Water Flow
Thoroughly agitates clothes to evenly rub them clean with
just a little water. Thanks to unique control, quick reverse
rotation of the pulsator is possible. Even with just a little
water, this generates waves that uniformly agitate clothes.
Detergent is turned into a dense, highly concentrated
cleaning foam that penetrates clothes and attacks grease
and grime deep within the fabric fibers.
Aqua Beat Wash
Triple-motion water flow, the source of Aquabeat power.
Avoids damage to clothes while keeping high spin-drying performance.
Big Cassette Lint Filter
Cassette-type filter traps lint effectively at any water level and won’ t tear.
Low Noise Operation
Inverter motor and catenary curve design realizes low noise operation.
High-speed spin and powerful air flow thoroughly blow off moisture to shorten drying time.
Makes your clothes smell good. Keeps softener fragrance.
For babies and those with sensitive skin. Double Overflow Rinse thoroughly eliminates
residual laundry soap.
If power is interrupted, you can resume washing later with the touch of a button.
Save time, save energy, and relax.
Auto Power Off
When washing is complete the machine automatically switches to Auto Power Off mode.
Gentle Hand Wash
Now you can easily leave delicate items to the washing
machine instead of washing them by hand or having them dry
cleaned. Washing using the unique care net prevents damage
to fabrics due to clothes being rubbed by the pulsator.
The Eight Commitments of
Panasonic is devoted to technical innovation that not only
enhances washing power, but also balances that
performance with outstanding energy and water savings. We
likewise engage in the unrelenting pursuit of
consummate ease of use, quality and reliability, in marketing
washing machines designed to furnish top-caliber use for
many years. Here are our eight commitments incorporated
into the crafting of each and every Panasonic washing
Over 60 Years of Tradition
Panasonic washing machines embody the essence of
Since 1951, ninety million Panasonic washing machines have
been sold in Japan and around the world.
Our R&D focuses on ease of use, and our history of rigorous
quality control is unmatched in the industry.
Lid Open-Close Durability Test
To confirm that the latches and hinges will not become loose over years of use, Panasonic
conducts a durability test that repeatedly and continuously opens and closes the lid over
In order to completely eliminate the possibility of unexpected injuries while using the
washing machine, Panasonic carefully checks external parts using mock fingers. This test
helps prevent accidents, such as a person’ s finger being pinched by machine part joints, or
electrical shocks caused by touching a lead wire.
Lid Strength Test
In addition to the machines themselves, Panasonic pursues high durability in accessories as
well. We perform hose pipe strength tests to ensure that the hose pipe will not be damaged
by the impact of 500-gram steel ball dropping from a predetermined height.
In addition to vertcal dropping, more severe conditions in which the sides, edges, or corners
hit the ground first are tested to ensure that the product’ s rigidity and shock-absorbing
materials prevent damage.
