Today at panasonic i’ve met with joey, who introduced the latest in washing machines: a system that washes and dries your dirty cloths foe much less water and electricity. In fact, panasonic claims it uses 20k gallons less per year (!!)
The machine does that by tilting the drum on an axcel, this achieving the safe rabric to water contact as a regular drum for less.
Currently the machine is sold in japan only. Joey explained that homes in US need a much bigger unit such is why they are not making a move yet.
