Outline

A high-capacity top-load washing machine for the Japanese market focusing on usability and high detergency. The placement of the control panel at the rear to ensure wide and clear space at the front increased the ease of loading and unloading laundry and post-laundry cleaning. The large round opening enables stress-free loading and unloading of clothing. Also, for the first time in the industry, a top-load model incorporates a hot water washing function to tackle persistent sebum stains, yellowing, and odors, which were previously difficult to remove. Product performance and design that meet high capacity needs have been achieved by considering installability in Japan's limited space and by designing a suitable body size and lid structure.
