This drum-type washing and drying machine a concept that was inspired by adopting the user's vantage point has the drumset at a slanted angle to enhance user friendliness and reduce the necessary effort when doing the laundry. The angled drum makes it easier to load and unload clothes as well as see inside the drum. The product is a Universal Design manifestation that is easy for anyone to use, including children, seniors, and persons in wheelchairs. The slanted drum improves water conservation significantly, using about 60% less water compared to our models sold seven years ago (the user can save about 50 tons of water annually). The NA-V81 cleans like a top-loading washer and dries like a drum-type dryer. The Suds & Shower washing system is gentle on clothes, while the Wide Blow drying system reduces uneven drying.
