Thanks to their efficient inverter Motor the new G-Series Panasonic washing machines have a top energy rating of A+++.

The big load capacity of 10kg and the 34cm large aperture make it easy to load and wash big volumes of clothes.

The Panasonic Hydro active + technology consists in 5 point multi-directional showers coming from 5 directions which rapidly penetrate items and guarantee efficient washing and rinsing.

In addition to that, the Perfect sense Technology detects precisely the amount of clothes to reduce waste of water and get the best washing results.

No matter the type of fabric of your clothes, Panasonic washing machines let you choose from a host of customised care programmes and options that deliver perfect results.

The 3D Sensor Wash analyses the movement of the drum, detecting the movement of the laundry in the machine and making adjustments to enable the laundry to tumble from the optimal position.

The result is the best possible washing performance- whatever the wash.

The new NA-140 VG3 proposes an Eco Speed mode: if you want to save some energy and water you can choose the Eco Mode, if you want to wash very fast you can choose the Speed mode .

The new Panasonic NA-140VG3 has a lot of useful programmes like Delicates, Shirts, Sportswear, Baby-care, Silk Lingerie,Quick 50, etc. which will make the washing easier for you.

The new Sazanami drum cares for a gentle efficient wash.

Thanks to the inverter brushless motor the machine achieve 53 db only for washing and 71 dB for spinning.

The Child lock function keeps the door locked so it cannot be opened while the machine is running and it locks the buttons to prevent children from changing programmes.

Great deal. Panasonic have a cash back offer too.

Doesn't look like this model is included in the current Panasonic cash back offer.

Love my Panasonic TV.. but as for them making washing machine's, read the many poor review's first

No after sales service!!! Gaps for things to get in and hold drum
1 out of 5, reviewed on Jan 05, 2015
I would never buy a Panasonic anything again, especially white goods. Trying to get service is near impossible and standard response from Panasonic is, yes we will get back to you in xxx days - after 3-4 weeks of same non service you would have been better ditching and buying new!. This machine has a gap that allows things to get into it. Thinks as big as a spoon can get in which will complet ely stop the drum moving. Note this will not be covered by warranty!! Some model numbers had a mandatory replacement part, however, Panasonic only does this if you have make a service call through them! Very poor - avoid panasonic

This looks exactly like my Samsung just without the smart panel possibly the same factory. Good deal.

Got this and it's awesome - very quiet and not a had any problems

Only 2 years warranty and 8kg capacity

I had one of the original models and after two years the drum was replaced due to its uneven spin and then after nearly five years it kept stopping with error codes. I must agree there service agents are more than somewhat lacking. After about six visits and the issue still not resolved Panasonic said they would replace it (one phone call to them and 3 days wait while they checked the repair dockets) but the warranty would only carry on till the original expired. However when I went into the store where I got it they said I could have anything I wanted to the original value so I got a bosch with a £100 cash back and 2 year warranty. The Bosch doesn't look as solid but works better. I would have another Panasonic - for the price and warranty you can't go wrong if you can put up with the hassle when it does.
Ps I've got a dishwasher for my spoons

I think these are made by Vestel

How many HDMI ports?

Panasonic has very poor customer service so cold for me. Better washing machines out there.

looks like this 2011 model washing machine has been replaced by the NA-140VG4WGB so can't find the full official specs on uk site but found it on this foreign site: panasonic.com/afr…tml

It uses 63 litres of water if you were wondering. The VG4 uses 56 litres and 0.89kwh.

I had a problem with my Panny. Moisture detector. 5 years parts and labour. I have nothing to compare the service with but an engineer was around within two days.

Burn-in still a problem ?

People's Republic of China Direct

I have had this machine for 4 yrs with no faults as yet although I paid about £600 when it first came out.
Previously to this I had a washing machine via Rumblelows (there's a blast from the past and it was cheap as chips but lasted 20 years only ever needed a door seal twice)
I had hoped with the panny being direct it would quieter but that to has high frequency noise.
It came with a 10 yr warranty so really is good deal

I have a Panny washing machine and so does my mum. My mums has been replaced within a year as it kept breaking down and mine works but odd things happen, like very wet clothes or sometimes won't ever end the spin cycle. I won't be buying another when this goes.

Reading the copied & pasted specs in the OP, if their customer service is as bad as their translators then I would avoid oO

Can anyone confirm if this is definitely a 10kg drum capacity? In the picture it says it is 8kg....

Any clarification is appreciated.

We have a 4 year old 1600 8kg, had to call out repair for first time today as bearings are going. Followed press 1...press 2 and eventually got put through to a company who said...'we stopped doing Panasonic repairs last December' so first CS fail, in 2 months they have not updated their phone system. Then spoke to someone at Panasonic, explained the phone system error, they couldn't care less....

Ours had a 6 year warranty...interesting that they have reduced it to 5 now....

From a couple of quick searches it looks like the image is mislabelled and that this model is 10kg.

We bought a Bosch washer dryer £600 and is now 3 years old. It's had 2 new boot gaskets a new motor, new bearing cross and a new element! Just cost me 95 labour as when motor went I refused to pay the 169 for it so they said just pay the call out .

Washer dryers to get more use tho but didn't expect all the above to go wrong

Luckily 2 year warranty and Bosch normally come out within 3 days. Theres worse out there and better. A lot of these are made in Poland now not Germany as u we'd think

Warranties are great, but I'd rather a machine that has the best chance of not breaking down in the first place as it inevitably means I start having to take time off work - using my holiday days.

My last machine was a Bosch Logixx that did 7 years of daily hard graft before it died quite spectacularly. During the period though before that it never failed once meaning no unnecessary time off for me. There is value to be had in that.

Heat for the longest title I've ever seen.

I bet the speakers are naff....

I had one of these.
ripped clothes to shreds on the second wash! there is no rubber seal between the door like on most machines leaving a stupidly big gap for things to get caught.
Panasonic customer service appalling. they claimed the machine was fine and had the audacity to say it was the way I loaded the clothes. admitted liability when I filmed it chewing more clothes. sent it back and bought Samsung.
like someone said. a ten year warranty is actually useless on something that keeps breaking. it should be a sign of confidence in their products not breaking for ten years, not a backup service they need to give with their products because they know how often they break.

Quite agree. Was fed up with waiting in for the Dyson repair man (we were on first name terms) all the time. In the end we bought a Miele washing machine as they have by far the best reliability and a full 10 year warranty. True, paid £600+, but it's been used daily ever since and not gone wrong yet.

Don't think they cover Panasonic

where are the details of the 5yr warranty ?

DO NOT trust the 5 year warranty, we bought one two years ago but which died after 8 months (U11 drain failure). We called the telephone number provided and they said they were a contractor and that panasonic have ceased their contract and gone with another company so I called panasonic and they knew nothing about this and told me to ring them back which I did and got told the same thing from another person. So I rang panasonic again who said they didn't know???? They said they'd call back within 48 hours... guess what, no call.... We skipped it and bought a samsung which we're very happy with (performs better than the panny too)

I've just bought a Miele, and whilst the 10 year warranty is good in principle, if you read the small print it is limited to 10,000 hours of operation. May sound like a lot, but it's only 2.7 hours a day. Some of the "Eco" wash cycles are longer than this. So in reality, the warranty may only be good for 7 years, and you won't know until the Miele repair man plugs in his laptop.

Yep, it's not perfect, I'll grant you. Although we find the 20 and 30 minutes wash cycles good enough for a lot of stuff, so no idea how many hours we've used so far. But certainly at the time (3-4 years ago) it was considered the most reliable machine on the market, I've no idea if that's still the case though.

Heat Added!

Agree with all above and eventually bought a BEKO ...NOT had a problem since and half the price too

Only on HUKD can you have KFC Chicken for £5.99 at Number 1 and a washing machine for a few hundred £££ at Number 2!!!

It's what I love about this site! Superb

we have had 2 Panasonic washers first one failed at 18 months, 2nd one still going strong after two years. Repair people don't have a clue no diagnostic stuff so just guess wrong until its time to have a replacement they replaces everything in the first machine twice missing the faulty part would not have the repair people back ever
