This drum-type washer and dryer, the world’s first with a variable field magnetic motor, achieves both high power and energy conservation. The high-end model Z8000 and Z9000 with the heat pumps offer even better energy savings. Its motor offers surprising washing power, while a high-speed spin cycle saves energy. The drum has twin nozzles for high-pressure cross-cleaning and improved rinsing with a large circular pump, for water savings. The design features a natural form, resembling a drum pressed against taut fabric. The gentle, yet tense curved surface hints at the power inside the unit. The controls have been placed at an angle for ease of use.
