Any opinions on Panasonic washing machines? These seem to have been introduced in 2009 and online reviews seem to be pretty good.
Styling looks quite good, big doors with well engineered hinges etc. and 5 year warranty. Early models sometimes are good and then they cheapen them down later. Induction motor and 7kg seem to indicate good engineering.
I was thinking disadvantages maybe lack of spare parts, seems to be a lot of technology to go wrong (electronics and sensors), maybe lack of experience bulding washing machines.
Any comments from people who know about these things? (without a debate on spin speed!)
