Panasonic washing and drying machine, NA-VR1000 is intended for the Asian market. This washer and dryer combo features a tilted-drum design that allows easier access for children, elderly and wheelchair users. Easy to use programmable controls. A blue LED inside the drum illuminates the interior when the door is opened, reducing the likelihood of leaving laundry behind. Panasonic incorporated a heat-pump dryer for the first time in the world, so that no heater or water is used during the dry cycle. No moisture escapes outside. The new drying system dries clothes by exchanging heat via heat-pump unit. The machine is extremely energy efficient. Panasonic.
