With intuitive controls, innovative design and intelligent washing features, Panasonic’s new washing machine is designed around you and your lifestyle
Panasonic’s new VX3 washing machines - NA-140VX3, NA-168VX3 and NA-148VX3, to go on sale in the UK and EIRE from September 2011, push the boundaries of design innovation to provide a new way of doing your washing: with ease, while being eco-friendly and providing excellent results in every wash. The newly designed machine lets you view and control every aspect of your wash and the advanced StainMaster technology intelligently removes 23 of the most common stains. In addition, the flexible, efficient washing cycles minimise time, energy and money used for washing.
Panasonic’s new VX3 washers are designed so that washing clothes is no longer a burden on your busy life. The advanced StainMaster 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.
The more laundry you can fit into the washing machine, the more you can save on time, water and electricity. With a load capacity of up to 10 kg and a large 34 cm aperture, you’ll easily be able to fit an average family’s dirty clothes into just one wash with the NA-140VX3, NA-168VX3 or NA-148VX3. Pushing design innovation to it’s limits, Panasonic’s VX3 washing machine provides a quiet, efficient washing experience that fits seamlessly into your home. Powered by a brushless Inverter motor and with a silent arch wall design to absorb sound and vibrations, the machine reaches a maximum noise level of just 53dB during the wash cycle, and as low as 71dB during the spin. While in addition to a variety of wash programmes, the Eco/Speed mode allows you to save both time and money: reduce the time of your wash by 40 percent with “Speed mode”1 if you’re in a rush; or use 50 percent less energy and 30 percent less water with “Eco mode”2.
With Panasonic’s NA-140VX3, there’s no need to always use the same washing mode as you might have done before. With a large selection of easy-to-use, intelligent cycles, you’ll get the optimum wash performance to suit the situation. Choose a 15°C wash for lightly soiled cottons and linens to save energy, use modes specifically designed to take care of your fabrics including shirts, sportswear and bedding3, or pick the Rapid 15 programme which washes clothes that just need a quick rinse in 15 minutes. The washer’s 3D sensor and Perfect Sense technologies will intelligently recognise the amount of clothes in the drum, and automatically adjust the rotation speed and water required to give you the most energy-efficient and thorough wash. While with the HydroActive+ feature, the machine will shower your clothes from five directions for a rapid, and energy efficient wash.
