Drum washing machine with the world's largest 420 mm opening allowing easy clothes removal. Heeds the demands of Japanese users to place the 10º tilted drum higher so they can remove clothes with a good posture without bending over. The controls on the top of the door frame let users operate the machine while standing. The display completely disappears when turned off, letting it gracefully blend in with the interior. The reinforced acrylic plastic frameless design on the front eliminates the seams and gaps of older washing machines for a flat surface easier to wipe clean to maintain a spotless look at all times.
